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 The original photo of the Conservative Friends of Pakistan lunch has been replaced by a four-year-old picture of Dave and Sayeeda with a completely unrelated caption.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…

          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

            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!”

          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*

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

        Just buy the paperback. That’ll keep your mind occupied for, er, a few days without having to ingest the other crap.
        Kept me sane during a prolonged spell of hospitalisation in Interlaken while they decided whether to amputate or go for something more adventurous.

        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.

          Blowing Whistles says:

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

      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 !

    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

    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

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

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

        Want to limit my life style do you?

      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

    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…..”

    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.

    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

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

      Telegraph sucks massive ballbags now

      Fuck those cu’nts

    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!!!
