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.

    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.

      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.

      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 Mr Fawkes has admissible evidence that Mr Brown has committed perjury then he should have been down the Police Station with it straight away or even quicker.

      Anonymous – YOU are the most irritating fuckwit on Guido’s blog. You never stop. You moan and bitch and switch from Tory to Labour. You complain you’ve never been approached by a polling organisation. How ironic is that when you can’t even decide for yourself who you support? I wish you’d fuck off and leave this blog for people with something to say AND a consistent position on matters under discussion. You call Guido vile! I call you an unbalanced idiot who should be sectioned and stuffed in a darkened cell with the One-Eyed Scottish Fuckwit until one of you calls for Nurse.

    It’s all a load of Bollox…..I don’t believe for one second that all his mobile calls go through the No 10 switchboard….and he was at the Labour Party Conference at the time….
    Are we therefore supposed to believe that his calls to the Beard went through the switchboard?

    That is the question says:

    Hypothetically speaking, Brown did not necessarily call Murdoch as he stated but rather barked an order for some flunky to get Murdoch on the phone for him. Said flunky makes a call from some disposable mobile and hands it on to Brown when Murdoch is on the line. Thus Brown didnt make the call as he stated and Number 10 have no record of it. Hypothetically speaking of course.

      Also Brown slips in ‘there is no evidence’ to support that this call was made….ie; he made the call or at least spoke to Uncle Rup on a phone that was not recorded etc…

      How much do we hope Uncle Rup records all of his calls..

    Lots of Brown Haters on here.

    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.

    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.
