Cabinet Office Statement Does Not Clear Brown

Gordon Brown to Rupert Murdoch

The Cabinet Office has revealed details of Gordon Brown’s chats with Rupert Murdoch: “We confirm there is a record of only one call between Mr. Brown and Rupert Murdoch in the year to March 2010, on 10th of November 2009″. Despite the statement making it clear that no independent civil servant was on the call to take minutes, the Prime Mentalist is claiming that he’s in the clear: “This statement confirms Mr Brown’s evidence to the Inquiry”. Not quite.

Before people start crowing that Murdoch has committed perjury, Uncle Rupe told the Inquiry that Brown phoned him in September 2009, not November.  Given that Murdoch’s kids were having sleepovers at Chequers, we know full well that Gordon had a mobile phone…

    Could it be that Gordon destroyed his Nokias to destroy bthe evidence?

    I reckon you are right Guido. That phone call was made by Gordon in a violent temper as soon as he found out that the Sun had dumped him. He was out of control and did not use official or monitored communications. You only have to look at his interview with Bolton the next morning, Gordon was clearly unhinged and ready to lash out at anyone around him, even on live TV.

    Gordon was in Brighton at the Labour party conference when the phone call was made. Who’s to say he even used his own Nokia? I’m sure Damien would have let him use his if asked.

    One thing’s for sure he would not have threatened to ruin Murdoch in front of civil servants and have it documented.

    Its so petty and trivial. McMental had every right to be furious. His main customer had just switched to a rival supplier.
    Few would blame the idiot for being angry.
    And they kicked him really hard on the way out. Chopping him over conference.

    Yet this incident is typical of him.
    Instead of showing a human side he insists he wasn’t affected. Wasn’t concerned. Didn’t even care that the newspapers had given him a shafting on the day of his big {3,000th anniversary} relaunch.

    Major, Cameron, even Osborne and Blair, admitted they were caught in a newspaper trap. That they were influenced by the media.

    Everyone except the great helmsman. The man who insisted that all papers were brought to him before 6am, with all sections about him, labour, Cameron, etc highlighted.
    That’s reported in everyone of his cronies memoirs.

    Yet..according to the refusenik one, that never happened.

    jgm2 says:

    Oh yes he would. He is famous for assaulting staff and destroying taxpayer property in full view of witnesses. It’s just sheer happy coincidence (for him) that when he blew his stack this time around there was nobody around who is prepared to testify. Yet.

    He wasn’t at number 10. He was in Brighton attending the party conference, surrounded by fellow lefties equally agrieved at what the Sun had just done, they would all most likely have their own mobile phones with them. Chances are no civil servant could get anywhre near Gordon at that time

    Surely Murdoch taped the call! Knowing his biggest selling paper has just dumped the most malignant force in British public life and then he gets a phone call from the very same vermin. As head of a media empire you’d record that call wouldn’t you? I do hope he has and he’s just biding his time, giving Brown enough rope to completely hang himself, before publishing the tape….

    jgm2 says:

    It’s hard to know if he’s genuinely that insane or is that he has such total contempt for everybody, him being so clever and all, that he thinks that it simply doesn’t matter what he says – we’ll all forget it tomorrow.

    Labour polling at 40%+ does rather suggest he’s of the second opinion. And, much as it galls me to admit it, he’s got that right.

    Is it any wonder politicians lie when, faced with the biggest economic clusterfuck in almost a century you can, only two years after getting rid of the jackasses that caused it, have a population that is ready to stick the same fuckwits with the same fucked-up policies, back into power. No wonder politicians treat the voters with contempt. If I was a politician, faced with that information, I’d treat the voters with contempt.

    Maybe you wouldn’t want to be recording your calls. You can see how bad it looks when you’re ordered to hand over all your e-mails. Imagine how much worse it could be if you were ordered to hand over all your (recorded) calls.

    More harm than good I’d have thought.

  46. 46

    Maybe.
    Did Dave say he had never met Rebekah? Never known anyone called Rupert?
    Did Dave say that when no one phoned him after dumping him. He never lost his notoriously short fused temper. He never knew about his own henchmen plotting to oust his greatest rival, and prime minister.
    he never read a paper. Never looked at a poll. Never authorised a leak. Never threatened colleagues with the ‘forces of hell’
    When half his cabinet resigned in protest at his inept performance, he didn’t mind.
    When Murdoch ran a story about his child, he was angry. So angry he decided not to cancel a sleep over with those who published, because…well..why?

    He has no answer except to deny the events are well know. Have already been in print. Were media stories at the time.

    if Dave ‘s defence had been ..”no that never happened..and can I add that I am heroic, but have been badly let down by the media, the party and the nation.” then maybe similar scrutiny would be applied.

    Guido has considered the matter fully and reached the following conclusions:

    1. Murdoch is a saintly individual for whom deceit would be as unthinkable as editorial interference.
    2. He would never dream of recording a telephone conversation.
    3. His telephone and indeed all office records which would have corroborated his claim for were tragically lost in a freak accident involving a dingo.
    4. Vote conservative.

Hypothetically speaking of course.

    Worth recalling that a former Tory PM also accused Murdoch of lying, but seeing you lot claiming Murdoch is a paragon of truth pretty much sums up the state of your brains.

    It’s also worth thinking about the fact that a call to Murdoch would go through his switchboard, and if it was the PM I would be astonished if someone didn’t record or minute the call. As NI have failed to produce a shred of evidence on this over the last 6 months, it looks to me like Brown is more likely to be telling the truth than Murdoch.

    But hey – don’t let reality get in the way of spineless hatred.

    Gordon is plainly telling the truth and Murdoch is equally plainly lying

    There’s not much you could have said to undermine your position further. At the risk of invoking Godwin, it’s people with your sort of mental tics that end up manning the taps on the gas chambers. You’ll forgive your heroes anything.

    Surely he would have been at his seaside conference venue, so no civil serpents present – so all this is saying is that the call was not from Downing Street, ergo meanngless.

    Of course. Why else would he be in a kneeling position?

    I accept that some of his testimony may not have been quite as helpful as it might have been.

    “At the risk of invoking Godwin,”

    For a right winger I would hardly have thought that was a risk worth taking. I have to say that might be the silliest post I’ve ever seen here, and I need hardly remind you of the standard of competition. Where fuckwittery is concerned this site is recognised as an Olympic qualifying event.

    Nah, Jimmy is too much of a snide little passive-aggressive type to do something as active as that. He’d be the greasy little accounts clerk trying to convince himself it’s perfectly normal to have a room piled high with gold teeth.

    chwarae teg says:

    Brown’s claim proves nothing. Remember, people can make calls on mobiles, and, in any case, during the week in question, Brown was away on a Labour conference so he would not have been able to make a call from Downing Street. That does not mean to say he could not have made the call from the conference or somewhere else.

    I suppose it’s a possibility NI might be looking to exchange what they (might) have for maximum value.

    You are very likely to win the bet but I can not tell when that will be.
    When this matter cools down & Levison has issued his report we can look to implementation of the advice that revenge is a dish best served cold.

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
