McBride Denies Book Deal

After dipping his toe into the blogging world on key occasions this year, Damian McBride has created plenty of ripples. Speculation has been spreading that the disgraced Brown spinner was touting for a book deal by giving us a glimpse of what such a tome would be like. Needless to say there have already been offers, which do not come as a suprise to anyone who has read his illuminating posts.

McBride denies he is interested though and says he has rejected deals.

Guess he will have to stick to the blogging.

Guido could use the competition…

        Can’t say I rember Le Monde Diplomatique being very anti EUSSR in the past, but haven’t read it for some time.

        Today’s prophets of doom are former optimists. They were behind the Europ an Community policies technocratically imposed 30 years ago; they celebrated the greatest market in the world, then the single currency, then the “policy of civilisation”; ignored public opinion as soon as it dissented; destroyed any plan for Europ n integration based on social welfare, public services or trade protection. But when midnight strikes and their coach turns into a pumpkin, they forget how happy they were, and swear they always warned us the scheme would never work.

        Will the current drama be the pretext for imposing a new federal leap forward without allowing universal suffrage a last bow? Europe is already in trouble; it cannot afford to deny democracy yet again.

          Nice to see that, notwithstanding their sudden and unacknowledged volte face on the topic under discussion; they haven’t lost their love of endless subordinate clauses, which, having no particular destination in mind from the start, judder into each other as they await the inevitable: a full stop.


          • In true New Labour Champagne Sociopath sytle, we are about to get another cash to trash, warts and all disclosure of the two worse Prime Ministers in British history.

            The only way to get this one to sell now is to have some interesting FSA, BoE, City Boys, Treasury anecdotes during the 2007-2008 crash, otherwise its the Waterstones discount bin inside a week

      Damian “The Omen” (or “Damian The Leper,” if you prefer) can call his tome “My Struggle.” How would that sound to you, Des? Socialist birds of a feather and all that…
      (Oh wait, that’s been done. Anyway, Johann Hari would probably beat him to that title.)

      Was it McBride who ended up as a janitor at some school?

      What is it with the state education sector? It seems to be used as a provider of sinecure cover jobs for Labour insiders. Wasn’t the Maximum Imbecile kept under wraps as a ‘history teacher’ until a safe seat came up and he could be launched into a career of maximum damage. Likewise Burgess and Maclean.

      Education seems to be the preferred recruiting and holding ground for the fifth columnists.

    So is the book the story of a decent honest left wing hard working person or is it just like the garbage I’ve just written, we need to know as it might just get a Booker prize.

    I am still amazed that they allowed this brutal bully anywhere near children in their formative years – and as for him raising money as a lobbyist for chairty – what decent charity would allow such a man….oh, right….

    Which is more morally wrong

    1. legally avoiding taxes

    2. Being part of a team that buggeried the country economically while in the process attempting to conspire to spread false malicious smears by email about leading opposition politicians…..and then lining yourself up to get back on the gravy train once again.

    Jimmy Carr, a guest of GB’s at Chequers once, or Damian McBride, a GB enforcer

    McBride by a mile I’d say!

    So how do we think the BBC will spin Labour’s latest fuck up involving Libor and the FSA and the fact there’s no provision for prosecution?

    1. Ignore it

    2. Blame Thatcher

    3. Blame Murdoch

    4. Blame George Bush

      Of course there are provisions for prosecution. The crimes here are theft, fraud, conspiracy to commit fraud, aiding and abetting fraud and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice. Now will the police kindly get off their backsides and start feeling the collars of these gangsters?

      Are you accusing balls of being a wife shagger? – if its own then perhaps shows poor judgement but he was not a great catch himself to be fair – if its someone else’s wife please tell more – that is the tittle-tattle I come here for.

      It’s patently clear to anyone that Ed Balls doesn’t know much about anything. He’s only where he is because militant trades unionists are running Labour, and the moment the party come to their senses he’ll be consigned to the back benches.

      At the time, like many outside the Westminster bubble, I thought the animosity between Blair and Gordon Brown was hammed up. Then I sat in on an interview with one of Brown’s Ministers – let’s, for the sake of argument, call him Ed Balls. I have never experienced so much contradiction between ‘on-the-record’ and ‘off-the-record’ stuff.

      This may be the way clever politicians work, but it is actually barking. Tell the truth or don’t. Afterwards I needed a drink, and the savvy editor I was with asked me if I wanted to go to the Brown pub or the Blair pub.

    If labour were not as guilty as hell, then they would not want an inquiry that will only report after the next election. This need sorting out quickly!
