Order of the OTT – Bruce Anderson

Guido has read Bruce Anderson’s Steve Hilton take down a couple of times now and has come to the conclusion that is worthy of an Order of the OTT. Anyone who has ever drunk in a bar in Westminster will know that Anderson takes personal credit for “discovering” Cameron and tipping him for great things when he was a mere backbencher. Since then he has been his avuncular defender in the press, though just as when he declared Dave to be “our Charles De Gaulle”, sometimes he over plays his hand. Is Steve Hilton feeding a few titbits on his way out of the door really “one of the most despicable instances of disloyalty in political history.” Probably not. And this one was filed before lunch…

    Sophie says:

    So now we know one of the guilty.

    Small time opportunists like Anderson, with not a single Conservative value or an ounce of patriotism in their bodies, are the reason the Conservative party is hated by its own grass roots voter base.

    Thankfully we have UKIP.

          Semi latent homosexual Cameroon in attack on Conservative financially independent woman shocker.

          How is that hug a hoodie, more tax borrow & spend, green taxes, more immi_gration, more EU thong working out for you?

          Vote UKIP


          • Sophie says:

            “EU thong” – I bet you have one of those with Daves picture on it.


          • Doh! says:

            Homosexuals not welcome in UKIP? how very libertearian


          • Anonymous says:

            Sophie, see comments above. Hope you get the gist!


          • Dr. Henry Freud says:

            “more EU thong”

            What would you like to tell us about that?


          • Sophie says:

            More than welcome – ask our local treasurer.

            She is ex-Tory too.

            Its those insipid Tory men with a semi latent sexual fixation on Cameron that offend. There are moany of them in the modern Tory party.

            Come out of the closet – & stop changing your moniker to make it look like you have support & freinds.

            Vote UKIP.


          • Dr. Henry Freud says:

            Is there anything you would like to tell us about your childhood?


          • In another world entirely says:

            “The time has come,” the Tories said,
            “To talk of moany thongs:
            Of greece–and krauts–and wholey socks–
            Of brussels sprouts–and mongs–
            And why the euro’s boiling hot–
            And whether whigs have pongs.”

    Cameron deserves the support of men like Anderson.

    How exactly does one “discover” David Cameron? Is it like a new formula for a cure for cancer or like finding a floater?

    sockpuppet #4 says:

    Our Charles de Gaulle?

    Crikey. I’m sometimes a bit rude about Dave, but thats a horrible thing to say.

    Dr Eoin Clarke says:

    I can prove that Cameron is related to Satan, just let me knock up a graph.

      His blog has almost as many readers as Guido according to the old Wkkio now some other bollocks.

      Amazing what a bit of pinging can do for the numbers.
      Dr Eion is 8th. Just ahead of Papertake Weekly Challenge.

      seriously! What a crappy ratings system.

    Desperate Dan says:

    I can’t criticise Anderson cos neither Steve Hilton’s nor his loony blue sky thinking have ever lived up to their exaggerated claims to brilliance. Hilton is all PR and no trousers. Cameron should never have allowed him inveigle himself into No. 10 in the first place.

      Right, time these tossers were shown the door.

      Backwoodsman says:

      Anderson is a sort of Sir michael Shite for the Tories, just think Cam instead of brown.

      A Chair Leg says:

      A politician who stands for office should do so with a few ideas already in his head. He should not lie his way into, say, No.10 and then trun round and hire other people to think for him.

    EU OUTY says:

    We should get a referendum on EU membership on the grounds that Cameroon said that no transfer of powers to Brussels. Well, Cameroon transferring power to the LimpDumbs has a similar effect.

    Beastly sino doctor says:

    More of our own Vidkun Quisling,

    At least De Gaulle tried to keep us out of the EU

      PR Mechant says:

      Yup, but he failed. The only thing he was good at was retreating to relatively safe London for the duration of the nasty stuff – and then went back to Paris to claim all the glory for himself. Un vrai con du premiere ordre.

    Leave Bruce alone.

    He got it wrong about Cast Iron Call Me Dave. Told Brucey that years ago. Never forgiven me for it either. Everyone makes mistakes. At least he is a Tory Jock, writes well, enjoys fine food and wine and sings for his supper.

    Can anyone tell me what other profession would allow a worker to quaff a whole bottle of red wine at lunch?

    Apart from hacks that is

    Fucking disgrace

    Have a heart – don’t be too hard on Brucie. He’s never been the same since his world fell apart when the servants got the vote
