Bryant Caught With Pants Down

When Guido leaked information before it appeared at Leveson, it had not been obtained via special access to the Inquiry, instead it had been acquired through good old-fashioned journalism. When Lord Justice Leveson tried to make him sign a confidentially agreement he refused. Chris Bryant on the other hand did sign one when he accepted Core Participant status…

When he ran hot and heavy to Parliament yesterday, Bryant had seen documents about Cameron’s meetings with Murdoch, which he had only received in advance of today due to his special status with the Inquiry. The Telegraph splashed it today…

After the good judge criticised Bryant this morning, albeit without naming him, the Tories are calling for him to apologise and surrender the status. Warsi has gone to the Parliamentary Standards Commissioner. When the DCMS Select Committee report comes out on Tuesday, the extent to which Tom Watson used his special access to that committee for commercial gain will become clear…

    So Warsi runs to the parliamentary standards commisioner re this but the Tory’s won’t have anything to do with parliamentary standards when they mean Hunt should take responsibility for his SpAd and resign.

    Hypocrisy and double standards of the highest order – no surprise on Camoron’s watch.

    Should have gone to Specsavers says:

    And I quote …..

    Mr Murdoch described his relationship with Mr Cameron in cooler terms than his “personal connection” with Gordon Brown, “admiration” for Margaret Thatcher and liking for the “ATTRACTIVE” Alex Salmond.

    Why shouldn’t Tom Watson use his membership of the DCMS Committee for his book on Murdoch?
    I doubt it will sell that many copies as this saga seems interminable – some charges will presumably be brought by the CPS after all this, I hope.

    Straight out of a bad soap says:

    The most interesting thing about the Brown/Murdoch call isn’t that Brown’s unbalanced, we knew that already. It’s that he actually used the phrase “I declare war on your company”. Who talks like that?! That’s the kind of melodramatic language used in soap operas! No serious adult goes round verbally declaring war on others.

    Guido – you’re such a tease about the fate awaiting Gordon’s former rottweiler, Watson.

    I’m sure your good old-fashioned journalistic sources are impeccable as always – and, if you’d like to declare war on Watson, I reckon he’s just about ripe to be taken down a peg or two for all his santimonious conspiracy-theory bleating.

    Cooper ” How much housekeeping can I have this week Ed ”
    Balls. ” Osborne has cut his wife’s housekeeping too far and too fast ”
    Cooper “Yes Ed, but how much.
    Balls ” Obama has invested in Michelle’s housekeeping”
    Cooper ” I’ll as Andrew Neal Ed, he might know”.

    Is it just me, or does Bryant look just like Howdy Doody. Google it.

    I can’t find any images of the Howdy Doody puppet taking a photograph of itself in its pants with the intention of procuring strangers for sex, but the likeness is still uncanny.

    Jimmy says:

    So Bryant’s offence was leaking details of the extent to which Flashman told porkies about his dealings with the digger and Warsi thinks it’s a good idea to make an issue of it?

    Abdel from Tooting says:

    So if you sign one of these confidentiality agreements you get core participant status and errr….. Expenses.

    I am beginning to understand.

    And of course if Mr Murdoch senior had had his finger on the pulse which even he has admitted he did not then this whole Inquiry would no have been needed.

    When it comes to discussing costs i hope a large bill is not heading my way as one of the few remaining taxpayers.

  55. 55
    Stacks of sleaze says:

    Bryant may be banged to rights on this but I still want a full explanation from Lord Snooty as to what exactly he has been up to this time.

    We were told there was one meeting with Murdoch and now there are allegedly several. We might be about to enter into surreal arguments about what does and does not constitute a meeting but in any event I am sure they were only discussing the good old British weather.

    Remember that 4 or5 of them have been imprisoned for expenses fraud I think that Snooty has already ridden his luck with the wisteria and second mortgage repayments.

    I for one will refuse to give him the benefit of the doubt a third time.

    o Hi,
    it seems like the intended destruction of policing by consent in this country is not newsworthy?
    The hatred felt by the present Government towards the police, and the devastation of officers career plans, now denigrated as a ‘ job for life’ is not being reported.
    One illustration is instructive.
    Since Winston CHURCHILL, every Prime Minister at Chequers at Christmas, has given a card and small gift by way of thank you to the police based there.
    Guess which PM broke that habit?!!
    Please see the attached re my e petition which I started recently.

    As with Leopards, socialists/communists can never change their spots/mental processes. There is something flawed about leftwing beliefs. And the labour party exemplifies this assertion; ms harman, ms cooper, mr balls, mr milliband et al, they all exhibit unhealthy propensities. Such as lack of honour, truth and loyalty to their constituents. These entities were all there during the 13 years of socialist hell and they’re still there just waiting to carry on from where they left off.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
