Warsi Will Regret CCHQ Kicking the CAN

It all began with another Tory using a dodgy business card. When Guido started digging into the Conservative Arab Network back in November, it soon became clear it was going to end in tears. One of their directors, a lobbyist, came to Guido’s attention when his card had the Tory logo on it, despite the group not being officially affiliated to party. Complaints were made and the Party seemed to realise something was up…

Sources within the group seemed confident that CAN would be given official status, not least because its Chairman Dr Wafik Moustafa was a close friend of Warsi who was proud that she had lived in his house. Issues around Warsi’s expense claims were well-known in the network and voiced to Guido before Christmas and again in January. CCHQ’s rejection of CAN’s affiliation in March meant there was a risk of Moustafa going rogue…

    War criminal Blair says:

    I just heard a protester got into Leveson and shouted at Blair about the money he’s made from Iraq and called him a war criminal. After he was removed, Blair said the man’s allegations about his links to JP Morgan were “completely false”. Which can only mean they’re completely true. And Leveson being the lickspittle he is apologised to Blair for the intrusion.

    Did you all love my quick footedness this lunchtime on World at One?
    We had Tony Blair in the Leveson trials and had a Blair / Brown cabinet minister on and balanced this with a tame professor from the University of London.
    Shock horror that the tame professor turned out to have some FACTS.
    FACTS we do not allow on World at One as we believe in left wing conjecture, half truths, rumours, and yes, sometimes lies. Never FACTS.
    He came out with the story that in Tony’s autobiography volume 1 he never mentioned Murdoch once, while Alistair Cambell’s autobiograpyy mentions Murdoch over 200 times.
    Of course we could not allow this glimpse into reality to continue so I quickly said how fascinating and interesting, but we have run out of time and we must move on to the Baroness Uddin expenses scandal.
    Did I say Uddin? Silly me I really meant Baroness Warsi.
    BBC biased? Not with me in place.

    Hi Guido a bit of news from the dead tree press

    National Union of Journalists says without recovery plan its funds would run out by October (bankrupt left wing union)

    As a result of the tough economic climate facing the media industry, which has led to thousands of job cuts since 2008 and falling NUJ membership, the union said it no longer has the income to cover its £100,000-per-week running costs

    The NUJ, which expects to make about £5m in subscription income in the year to the end of September, had forecast year-on-year falls of about 2%. However, this year the drop in income is running at about 5% and for the year to September 2013 the NUJ is now forecasting a 10% decline.

    The NUJ is looking to cut staff costs by about £400,000, from 53% of total subscription income to 45%. Press Gazette has reported that the NUJ is looking to cut nine out of 47 staff.
