    Lord Leveson says:

    this will cause Hari Kari

    Invent – that’s what you normally do.

  3. 3
    Maximus says:

    He had a little mini-me friend that did his sock-puppeting. Dead, or merely sleeping?

    arthur biscuit says:

    Does he have any “friends”? Maybe just some invented ones the sad fucker

  5. 5
    Hari Krishna says:

    Time to reflect when your career is in freefall

  6. 6
    Maximus says:

    The little tw@t doesn’t want to be seen paying Murdoch for access to WSJ. Put it on expenses, creep, and hope your pals don’t snitch — but of course they will.

    David Rose says:

    Elvis then looked up, a mournful wave of despair crossing his face – “I dont want to die on the toilet Johann” he said wistfully, & then with a whimper the King slid off the throne & into my arms. The King was dead.

    Your Friendly Neighbourhood Disambiguation Service says:

    Copying the work of one author = plagiarism (see Johann Hari).

    Copying the work of many authors = scholarship (see all academics).

    Copying the work of other authors in the Blogosphere, Twitter, and Facebook = Order-order.com (see Guido Fawkes).

    Is that a true story?

    The Story unfoldss says:

    Every time the BBC flesh out the Leveson story and put up a new edition they seem to write more about Guido Fawkes and its creator. You seem to becoming the Story in the BBC’s eyes. Have you been grovelling to them? They must be doing wonders for your beer tokens.


  23. 23
    ini ito says:

    Leveson’s secret is revealed. Johann’s too.
    That’s the matter Hari!

    Johann Hari says:

    I swear, on a stack of Bibles, I didn’t know a damned thing about Owen’s book when I wrote MY book called “Chavs.” So the answer is, and MUST be, no, I don’t read Owen, and he doesn’t read me, so far as I know. Well, let me put that another way: Owen probably doesn’t read anything with my by-line (but he and everyone else can read me like a book for the poseur I am).

    Gordon Brown says:

    What a progressive move, even I never thought of that one.

    Brian Levinson and the Ubiquitous Jay says:

    We, the incestuous and monopolistic barristers of this realm

    Do give you notice, Fawkes, that you will be summonsed to appear before us shortly

    To answer for comptempt of the highest Court in the land

    We are, of course, rank amateurs when it comes to dealing with this media circus and sorting out the truth from fiction and the crooks from the great and true…

    But you fall into another category

    You like the truth and that will never stand

    Backwoodsman says:

    Of course it is. I remember Johhan telling me it, just after the story of how he had warned Geoffrey Howe over dinner on Tuesday, about how Black Wednesday was going to happen.

    Excellent p..i..e..c..e.. of journalism R.L. By gad sir, Jonny boy has taught you well!

    Rat's arse says:

    I’ve noticed that Leiber are not liking the Human Rights debate whereby people can’t enter the UK unless they are earning a ‘few’ thousand a year and are able to suppoet their so called dependents.

    Yvette ‘know-it-all’ Scooper Balls is on next; I think I’ll turn the sound off and just watch her gurning.

    Rat's arse says:

    Here is the ‘screeching Scooper Balls’ now. Isn’t it marvellous how this Law was bought in by BLiar so that slotgob, a Human Rights ‘vulture’ could get more work/money?

    By her side is Underpants Bryant, looking rather sweet in what looks like a flowery little tie… so sweet!

    Yvette talking a load of Balls says:

    Someone in the House has just accused me of waffling because I like the sound of my own voice & wish to sound prime-ministerial.

    I have done no such thing
    I have done no such thing
    I have done no such thing
    I have done no such thing

    He’s on about some r..a….g….h….e….a…d… he helped to stay in this country because it was dangerous to deport him back to Iraq!

    Remind me Mr Straw, who made Iraq dangerous?

    What a c..r…e…t…i…n…!

    How my little plagiarist learned to be a journalist says:

    After that he sent articles to me at least once a day, and we had an unspoken agreement that some day soon he would start working for me. I was working on getting rid of his bullshitting reflex.

    But I had a limit. I wouldn’t publish him until he was honest. Night after night he placed my hands on his keyboard, trying to get me to write the articles. While I lay on my side, he would try to manoeuvre himself so he could take credit for the work of others. One morning, I woke up with a story and found he was trying to get his word processor on top of it, to feel his big brother’s big story finally break into his readership.

    I understood why he wanted it — I have a prime piece of reportage, and have been offered plenty of cash for it over the years — but I have rules.

    So he insisted that I break him in on the night of his thirty-third birthday, and I didn’t take much persuading. When he was asleep next to me I let myself run my hand along his Macbook Pro, imagining how great it would feel to make it mine. I wanted to really pound that keyboard to get an opinion piece ready for retail, so I decided to book a hotel room where his typing would not be noticed by mom.

    Blowing Whistles says:

    I still have a laugh at his demented tirade (at all of us climate change deniers! Huh) in the Indy at those who had the backbone to stand up to the Climate Change myth. Sailed on the wrong ship there Hari – off the edge of the Flat Earth.

  63. 63
    Nick Fisher says:

    They’ve scrapped an amendment to force businesses to rotate the rating agency they use, that’s all. I’m no fan of the EU, but come on guys !!!

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.”
