Breaking: Brian Admits Discussing Emergency Hearing

You read it here first…

UPDATE: According to the Guardian “Leveson believed an emergency hearing would bring “unnecessary cost” to taxpayer and core participants so decided against it.” Not because it was absurd over-reaction then…


  1. 1
    Lord Leveson says:

    Stop it.

  2. 2
    Gideon says:

    Lies. Lies. Lies. And more Lies.

  3. 3
    Nom Dom Nom says:

    I see we have two number ones. Is this the coming of the rapture?

  4. 4
    Gordon Brown says:

    Ive got a number 2 in my panties

  5. 5
    David William 'Donald Duck' Cameron says:

    What the fuck are you doing posting on this shite?

    Get back to work. Otherwise, I’m sending Samantha over.

  6. 6
    Gordon McMad says:

    I am listening to the Black Eyed Pe/as!

    What the Hell is going on?

  7. 7
    les says:

    Who’d a thought he was a Brian !!

  8. 8
    Gordon McMad says:

    Angela Merkel?

    I would!

  9. 9
    Michael Martin says:

    Brian is absolutely and wholly and completely right. The public should never have been allowed to know about expenses paid within Westminster. The free press must be stopped before it gets worse. Och Aye!

  10. 10
    Twat Watson says:

    Someone put the poor fucker out of our misery.

  11. 11
    Steve Miliband says:

    He called Gordon to the enquiry, what the fuck did he expect?

  12. 12
    Gordon McMad says:

    Angela Merkel thinks I’m at work.

  13. 13
    Brian of Nazereth says:

    I’m Bwian.

  14. 14
    Philip McArthur says:

    The arrogant git was totally out intellectualised by Michael Gove and this is his petulant response.
    He now knows he is not as clever as he thought but the arrogance still shines through.
    He attained his lofty status during the rein and by the gift of Blair and then Brown. It shows !!!!

  15. 15
    Call me Dave says:

    We need an immediate and full investigation into the whereabouts of the missing number 2 post on this blog. We shall start one straight away and in around 5 years and millions of tax payers money we shall have the recommendations from the appointed Judge.
    We shall then rewrite mathematics so that all occurrences of the number 2 are obliterated.

  16. 16
    A Passing Cynic says:

    I love the irony of him wanting to censure a minister who dares to say that the enquiry is becoming an enemy of free speech. Brilliant. Sheer brilliance.

  17. 17
    davidc says:

    no one in this country is held to be above the law (look out for others to supply names , details of those who are or consider themselves above) and equally judges are not above criticism, comment and reproof

  18. 18
    Yvonne from the Colliers Arms Clydach says:

    The problem is not Leveson or Gordon Brown.

    It is that Mickey Grove character.

    I mean to say just because he can count from one to ten in Latin he seems to think he is in someway superior to the rest of us.

    Latin is a dead language so I cannot see it creating two million real jobs.

    Anyway this is how they think in the Colliers.

    I think Mr Grove better stay out of Clydach unless he wants an Ed Milliband non NHS nose job.

    Just trying to help.

    Nom Dom Nom says:

    (look out for others to supply names , details of those who are or consider themselves above)

    Anyone who can put MP as their title.

    Raving Loon says:

    I can’t believe this show trial is STILL going on.

    Who the f**k cares?!

  21. 21
    annette curton says:

    So “Leveson believed an emergency hearing would bring “unnecessary cost…”, what bluster, I think the word “unnecessary” covers it, Is his one of the finest legal minds of our times?.

  22. 22
    Pete Smith says:

    Spoken like a true trooper.

    It was just like this at the Inquiry into the Titanic although it did help that the Captain had gone down with the ship.

  23. 23

    Above the law.

    Chilcot says:

    I do

  25. 25
    Andrew Lloyd Weber says:

    I’m going to do Leveson the musical. It will run for 30 years to sell out audiences

    Roman numerals only go up to 999,9999.

    They reckoned they wouldn’t need a million of anything.

    Loungelizard says:

    Any news on The Chilcot Inquiry or has it all been accidentally shredded?

    The Man who Saved the World says:

  32. 32
    Steve Miliband says:

    Welcome to all you BBC loving link clickers. Be aware – this ain’t the fucking Guardian

  33. 33
    Hannibal from Carthage says:

    I suspect there are a few pay days in all this.

  34. 34
    nellnewman says:

    ‘Is his one of the finest legal minds of our times?’

    if it is that explains why our legal system is in such a mess.

  35. 35
    Selohesra says:

    If Leveson so worried about cost why doesn’t he just issue the report he had planned all along based on his prevconcieved prejudices – rather than pretending to listen to the expensive drivel from his “inquiry”?

  36. 36
    Nom Dom Nom says:

    LOL to quote …

    For four years now Europe’s one-dimensional obsession with public debt meant it took its eyes off the seismic tremors in banking and quite failed to grasp the underlying structural problem: how to achieve growth within the current euro

    Is that 0% growth you are talking about?

  37. 37
    Dobbie says:

    rein? Do you mean reign perhaps?

    Are to Gove or just his lacky?

  38. 38
    Sandra says:

    Drivel from a man who destroyed our pensions, sold the nations gold, wrecked the currency, impoversihed the poor and stole from British taxpayers who are not yet born?

    The man would be a laughing stock if he had not destroyed the lives of so many people.

    He should at least face Inquiry for gross incompetence in public office – maybe then the public would have some faith that they are not above the law.

  39. 39
    Dobbie says:

    It’ll be Dave (or Guido). You’ll be sorry.

  40. 40
    nellnewman says:

    Is that the same gordon brown that said he’d cured boom and bust?

  41. 41
    Genghis Khan says:

    People used to outintellectualise me.

    I simply made sure they had no eyes left and made sure my staff were really well paid

  42. 42
    Tony Bliar says:

    Law is a social construct

  43. 43
    Own Goal says:

    Interesting Article Gordon, so you don’t agree with Barroso then. The Euro’s problems having nothing to do with America and all to do with Barroso himself.

    “For four years now Europe’s one-dimensional obsession with public debt meant it took its eyes off the seismic tremors in banking and quite failed to grasp the underlying structural problem: how to achieve growth within the current euro. In the four years since American and British banks recapitalized, added capital (around 4 percent more) and wrote off bad debts (an equivalent 4 percent write-off), Europe has vacillated. Its euro-area bank recap added only half a percent of new bank equity – and an even smaller write-off of toxic debts. Now, we must look for a bank recapitalization of anything between 200 billion and 500 billion euros.”

  44. 44
    nellnewman says:

    Oh and as for ‘last chance’ gordon has his two years ago . We’ll not be giving him another.

  45. 45
    Dobbie says:

    At last! A soul mate. (B£iar hater).

  46. 46
    Gender Bender says:

    But isn’t that a picture of Sarah and Gordon Brown?

  47. 47
    Dobbie says:

    Like the Greeks then. It’s Gove innit? (not Grove).

  48. 48
    will says:

    british jobs for british workers. oops not now we are in the EU

  49. 49
    David William 'Donald Duck' Cameron says:

    It’s my real name. Check my birth certificate.

  50. 50
    Dobbie says:

    No more of that boom and bust now.

  51. 51
    annette curton says:

    Worth a reprise it’s quite catchy.

  52. 52
    Dobbie says:

    A lovely pair.

  53. 53
    RED ED - SON OF BROWN says:

    I’m working on our next manifesto now.

  54. 54
    will says:

    the northern rock, ireland and spanish problems could have been stopped before they started if politicians had put pressure on banks not to lend so much on houses and insisted on 30% deposits and not in the case of northern wreak given 120% mortgages. The politicians were only too happy for the public to get a temporary feel good factor to vote them back into office.

  55. 55
    Mad, Bad & Dangerous Gordon McRuin ( Member in absentia ) says:

    Salve ! They figured without Labour’s spending then, didn’t they !

  56. 56
    Tonto says:

    No, I think it is another Gordon Brown.

  57. 57
    Mad, Bad & Dangerous Gordon McRuin ( Member in absentia ) says:

    I have saved the World.

  58. 58
    Lard Pressclott - Laughing Policeman in waiting says:

    ‘Things can only get better’ under Liebour. After all, Gordon abolished Boom and Bust in 1997.

  59. 59
    Jane Birkin from Paris says:

    French jobs for British Workers perhaps.

  60. 60
    Unaligned voter says:

    Would that be Liebour you are referring to ? Why didn’t the tories twig it then?

  61. 61

    I blame the bloody bankers. Watched over by sleeping useless politicians.

    But I can save the world even better with Eurobonds.

  67. 67

    Here’s a question worth asking. How many Greek nationals and their spouses have applied for National insurance numbers in the UK in the few last months?

  68. 68
    Mervyn King says:

    I have some gold chocolate coins left over from Christmas.

    Can they be of any use?

  69. 69
    I drive a Skoda says:

    You cannot fool me with your trick Questions.

    The answer is ‘none’.

    Greeks do not bother with National Insurance and taxes.

    “are to Gove” dont you mean “are you Gove”?

  71. 71
    Benny Fitz-Clements says:

    Not forgetting those that will be beginning to claim from the public purse here.

  72. 72
    Beyond doubt says:

    Im afraid a senior civil servant has lost the Chilcot enquiry along with some CDs of confidential data. Lessons have been learned and its time to draw a line in the sand and move on.

  73. 73
    will says:

    A few of the tories did and even a few labour politicians but no wanted to listen to hearing bad news and warnings about the economy as thwe mangic money tap kept spewing money for all the pet projects.

    A well know fund manager (called Dr Doom) at the time of the dot com boom said it would end in tears at the time he was derided but after he was sacked the markets tanked. Also warren buffett never invested in dot com shares as he did not understand them, so he kept to things he did understand (he seems to have done quite well) even lent goldman sacks a few billion.

  74. 74
    nellnewman says:

    I’ve got old monopoly money left over from the game which is mostly now lost. I suspect it’s worth more than these eu bonds thingies they keep talking about.

  75. 75
    Gordon ( sold Gold at the bottom ) Brown says:

    Gold ?! Sell !

  76. 76
    will says:

    most of the smart greeks did it years ago and got second homes in monaco switzerland or the Uk.

    knowing thier gov was pants they also moved their money off shore as well.

    I would have done if i was greek

  77. 77
    ides say more says:

    It’s just Leveson getting into the Olympic Spirit.
    The original Greek messenger at Marathon popped his clogs after delivering his message, but Guido is made of stronger stuff. When he reports of receiving a bullet in the mail, then is the time to worry.
    Modern day Political exposure is a marathon in itself when the division of opposing forces has become lost in the mists of time.

    Tony Eden from Eton says:

    I think someone is pulling your plonker my friend.

    It is impossible for any USB stick or CD to be lost.

    After the Darling debacle Dave Cameron got straight on the job and was talking about banning taking any such objects off the premises.

    Things can of course still be mislaid but they will always remain to be found within the office building.

    This is simple Conservative efficiency.

    Owain Glyndwr says:

    Lord Justice leveson when asked to comment on the Emergency Hearing replied.

    The bbc reported that it was a deep and thoughtfull reply

    Tony Eden from Eton says:

    I think in the interests of the vast majority of EU citizens free movement of Greek citizens should have been suspended upon the first tranche of EU bailout money being handed over.

    Perhaps the initial oversight can now be corrected?

  90. 90
    Phil says:

    Which is why he’s closing the lid on Motorman which arguably, by implicating virtually the whole of Fleet Street, is a far more serious matter than the witch hunt currently being organised against NI. Oooooops I forgot – burying bad news under a Labour Government is good anything however remotely to do with the tories,including a scandal which happened under Labour’s regime, is a hanging offence.

  91. 91
    Blowing Whistles says:

    Having printed off the text of the bbc piece – something to note.

    “Mr gove told a press gellery lunch in Febrary that there was “a chilling atmosphere towards freedom of expression which emanates from the debate around Leveson” [end quote of bbc piece.

    “Freedom of Expression” – is what we the public are entitled to cite when Ministers MP’s and judicials clearly have no intention to be totally transparent and open with regard to what is “Clearly in the Public Interest”.

    Freedom of the press is not Freedom of Expression – and as for the claims of “a free press” oh please DA-Notice me now.

    Legals, cops, the cps et all – have for years claimed that certain things will not be revealed – ‘because it’s not in the public interest’. Yeah right – it’s not in the interest of those concealing multiple crimes that the public should know that its them lot who’ve been at it for decades. It’s called a “Closed Shop”.

    Anonymous says:

    Im afraid Brian is a fool, this whole enquiry is a farce.Why are we harassing the PM etc ?

  93. 93
    ooh er says:


    The things that appear on memory sticks at the most inconvenient moments…

  94. 94
    That guy over there says:

    It is way beyond irony, it is pastiche.

  95. 95
    It's a free country, innit? says:

    I think you will find it is the tribunal that has sold out to the BBC/Grauniad axis of grinding axes.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
