Terrible day. The horse was innocent.

    Justice Fingers says:

    Was he just as tanned then?

  2. 2
    Steve Miliband says:

    How does a horse hold the racket?

  3. 3
    PJH says:

    Why was he accused of knobbing the bank to begin with?

      Gary Jones says:

      he was stitched up by our security services

        Tom Tomos says:

        No, it was a DI at Putney Nick (allegedly)

        You’re a bit gullible then!

          Didn’t This Week or World in Action finger BOSS, the Siffeffriken security bunch as having framed Hain ?

      Cos’ people kept digging up the wicket at Lords and it was simply playing havoc with the Test Match…

  4. 4
    Lord Justice Turkeyforahat says:

    Never did understand how he got away with that one!

  5. 5
    Anonymous says:

    “When he left court he promised to fleece the British taxpayer for the next 40 years.”

  6. 8
    Peter Hain auto tweet says:

    Strong and assured piece of homework by Jim

  7. 9
    Terrible But True says:

    Awesome penmanship, if a bit shaky (but…9) on a bit of grammar and spelling.
    Now, who was responsible for even a university grad struggling to manage that a few decades and several billions later?

  8. 10
    Teacher says:

    Trails? SPELLING! See me!

  9. 12
    Andrew Efiong says:

    Peter Hain: great anti-apartheid campaigner who become a vain self-publicist who gives MPs a bad name.

    As for Jim Murphy, he’s another full time career politician, right?

    • 26
      RED ED - SON OF BROWN says:

      Yup, apart from a short period of time working as a waiter, he has been exactly that, a full-time, self-serving, career politician climbing up the greasy pole.

    Gonk says:

    Disappointingly good handwriting. Damn.

  11. 16
    The Last Quango in Paris says:

    wow his handwriting was neat for a 9 year old boy!

    How has he got the time to do this and why would a 9 year old boy think it appropriate to diarise a trial? all very weird.

  12. 20
    Steve Miliband says:

    Nice of Jim to point out to those that didn’t know that Peter Hain was accused of robbing a Bank.

    Now Labour policy: taking money from banks is a panacae for everything

  13. 25
    UK Border Agency - Keeping Britain Safe In A Dangerous World LOL says:

    I thought he was retiring at last, perhaps he might even go home now!

    BBC says:

    Former NI boss Rebekah Brooks and her husband are to be charged with perverting course of justice during phone-hacking scandal

    The Diary of James Francis Murphy aged 9 and three quarters says:

    Late again Jim…someone else has already thought of the idea

  17. 33
    genghiz the kahn says:

    Do his other entries sing praises to Joe Gormley, Harold Wilson, Michael Foot and Denis Healthful?

    Did draw graphs for increases in strikes and rises in income tax rates and prices?

  18. 34
    mong head says:


    stupid fucker

    john P Reid says:

    and so was Hain…..

    well done hain for standing up to A fascist regime in Apartied, Something your tory party supported

    • 36
      Joss Taskin says:

      Was then when your Labour Party under Michael Foot was supporting the murderous Soviet regime in the USSR ?

    • 39
      Fitbad The Tailor says:

      He didn’t really stand up to them in SA though did he? It was all student protest and digging up pitches in a country that allowed him to do it.

    • 43
      Col Nut says:

      The “tory party” didn’t support “Apartied.” They did support grammar schools.

      Onanymist says:

      so did I

    Rhonddablue says:

    I was 12 in April 1976 and I’m pretty sure that if I’d been doing anything as wimp-stricken as writing a diary, the antics of Peter Bloody Hain wouldn’t have been my first priority, quite apart from the fact that I’d have been blissfully unaware of his existence anyway. Politicians are bloody odd people.

    kieth vaz is corrupt says:

    Do not be fooled this diary was written last year, no matter he is still a total cnut

  22. 46
    Tan says:

    Was that when Hain was accused of bank robbery.

Cathy Jamieson MP, Labour’s Shadow Treasury minister, commenting on Treasury analysis of the economic impact of tax changes…

“If the Treasury is looking at the economic impact of tax changes, then surely it should examine the impact of the rise in VAT and cuts to tax credits? George Osborne’s £12 billion VAT rise knocked confidence, helped to choke off the recovery and has cost families £1,350 over the last three years.”
