Telegraph Cover Up Warsi Guest Blunder

Guido has been most amused by the frantic changes made to the Sunday Telegraph’s Baroness Warsi story on their website today. The original photo of the Conservative Friends of Pakistan lunch has been replaced by a four-year-old picture of Dave and Sayeeda with a completely unrelated caption. Guido wonders if that could possibly be because someone at Telegraph towers realised the first photo they published on a piece that slammed the guests at a Warsi event made one guest in particular really stand out. Who was this shady figure given unchecked access to the PM?

Step forward the Telegraph’s very own Peter Oborne…

    Guido's sidecar says:

    You really can’t take anything near the truth or anything that touches it, can you kid?

    But you spend your time slearing others every day…

    Perfect hypocrite

    General I. Zay-Shong says:

    It’s worse than that.

    Lord Levinson and his legal cowboys says:

    This all shows that not only did our Dave assiduously frequent the criminal Murdoch empire and its operators, (and remember who Rupert Murdoch’s mother was) but also a bunch of equally doubtful p a k i s l a m i s

    I suppose that shows that he has a sense of balance in his total lack of judgement

  11. 11
    The Paragnostic says:

    The Telegraph is good when you’ve only got 10 minutes spare for the crossword, though.

    Semtext says:

    I wish i could remember my Warsi limerick.

    US ambassador to the UK says:

    The two faces says it all

    But a country so poor, divided and uneducated, with a nuclear weapon is a far greater threat than Iran IMHO

    Owain Glyndwr says:

    Leave the poor dumpy corrupt punjabi alone, bully

    Nigel all the Rage says:

    We must have a referundum

    We must leave the European Union

    We must officially become the 51st State of the US

    We must allow US banks to continue to use London r=to m
    That way we will sink with the US and the EU…

    I am very clever really

  16. 16
    Nigel says:

    When did I ever say “we must officially become the 51st State of the US”?

  17. 17
    The Bullingdon Brigade says:

    Come on Nigel

    We are free and independent

    We do not depend on the European Union or the US

    We are just their economic sub-contractors waiting for our balls to be removed

    Just buy the paperback. That’ll keep your mind occupied for, er, a few days without having to ingest the other crap.

    @US ambassador. I agree.

  21. 21
    Sir William Waad says:

    It’s nice to see that Sayeeda gets her clothes from M&S, like ordinary middle-class folk. I wonder if she could take Dave back for a replacement. “He was supposed to be pastel blue but he comes out pale pink under the spotlight, and he’s shrunk up terrible…..”

  22. 22
    Sir William Waad says:

    Slearing? Wham ore lou tarking aboot phease?

  23. 23
    Sir William Waad says:

    Is there a Conservative Friends of the United Kingdom group by any chance?

  24. 24

    Oborne has become something of a weirdo in recent times. There was a time when he was an independent thinking journalist with some integrity who wrote quite a few thought provoking articles. Now it seems he’s fallen in love with Islamism and become a hater of Israel and this has warped his integrity as a journalist.

    He’s become just another axe grinding hack with a chip on both shoulders.

    Gonk says:

    That’s a tough one.

    The cunt of Monte Cristo says:

    I first took the Telegraph in 1987, to learn more of the Libyan incursion into Chad, and to understand the French response to this aggression.
    It swiftly became the only newspaper I read.

    My dad also converted to it as soon as i brought the first copy through the door.

    Now i wouldn’t wipe a rabid Badger’s arsehole with it

  27. 27
    Nigel, the expenses cunt says:

    Suck my arsehole, throw me out of the fucking EU gravy train would you?

    Want to limit my life style do you?

  28. 28
    Nigel, the expenses cunt says:

    They all suck arseholes at the Twatgraph these days, a total shower of shyte

    Selohesra says:

    There once was a Baroness Warsi
    Who was not particularly classy
    In cabinet she’d fart
    And suck Dave off like a tart
    With skills like hers I’ll bet she’ll go far see

    Peter Oborne's anus says:

    fuck u….. get back to reading the fucking Beano, you anus

    Was His Excellency referring to La Belle France?

  32. 32
    Geoff, England (not Britain or 'United' KIngdom) says:

    There certainly isn’t a Conservative Friends of England group, and crapping on the only nation that votes for you in significant numbers seems a bit stupid to me.

  33. 33
    Here ya go Semtext says:

    There once was a PM called Davey,
    Whose chums were all drowning in gravy.
    He fast-tracked Sayeeda
    (Who wasn’t al-Qaeda)
    And made her stop calling him “Wavey*.

    I thank you. *Bows*

  34. 34
    Geoff, England (not Britain or 'United' KIngdom) says:

    It’s definitely drifted Guardianwards in recent years, which only reflects the leftward drift of the entire political/media class.

    Piss fucking poor, E. And you wonder why they banned you, FFS?

    Again please sidecar. Explain in clear, grammatical English.

    Wish I could write prose.

    Blowing Whistles says:

    and is there a Conservative Friends of the Constituents group? Thought not – unless of course they’re Loaded!

    Blowing Whistles says:

    Oborne – IS NOT OUT OF THE WOODS YET!!! Dead men can tell tales these days Peter … and Peters silence over the past ten years might just catch up with him very soon.

    He too has some questions to answer – particularly of his ‘closeness to BOJO’.

    Remember a boxing match spat between Oboe and Bigears Marrs some years ago!!!

    Boudicca says:

    I’ve been perturbed by Obornes latest pronouncements too.

    Telegraph sucks massive ballbags now

    Fuck those cu’nts

    You think Britain should give it up then?

    How churlish to doubt Baroness Warsi,
    She’s given her word as a laydee.
    Just to be sure
    There’ll be no ordure
    Her Blackberry’s gone down the khazi

    These are difficult times for Baroness Warsi
    Why are all her accounts coded in Farsi?
    She’s got nothing to say
    and instructed her PA,
    “If bizzies ring, tell ‘em I’m on the khazi!”

    Oborne, whilst sound on most things, displays very strange tendencies on anything islamic.

    He’d come out and defend Warsi if they dug up Madeline McCann in her back garden !

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
