Labour’s Karl Turner is an Expert in Public Aggression

Labour’s wannabe attack-dog Karl Turner has had a good day. His eyewitness tweets of the PM apparently dressing down Jesse Norman have nudged this dreary non-entity out of total obscurity. Last night he reported that a “very angry… finger pointing and prodding” PM had “lambasted” Norman in “animated and clearly aggressive” way. He went on to lecture about how un-statesmanly the affair had been.  Those words like “angry” and “clearly aggressive” got Guido thinking though. He remembered a story from January 2011:

Turner was travelling on the train to Hull and the guard politely asked him not to steal newspapers:

“Witness reports say the usual “don’t you know who I am”… “no” routine was deployed when the train manager had to intervene and “a very unpleasant scene” prevailed which saw Turner “draw himself up to his full 5’6 ins and launched into a tirade of abuse against the man”. The wobbler apparently continued on the platform after arrival at Hull station, with Turner claiming he wanted a written apology from the train company. “A self-satisfied, obnoxious, patronising bully who can afford a quid for The Times” was one of the more delicate descriptions of his behaviour.”

Sounds “animated and clearly aggressive” to Guido. Takes one to know one, eh Karl?

    Robert Catesby says:

    Karl is owned by the RMT. He not only receives massive campaigning funds in return for Parliamentary activity ‘helpful’ to the RMTs’ cause (cash for questions in other words) but he also lives in a London flat paid for by the RMT, right next door to RMT senior political officer Steve Todd.

    Just so you know.

    Quisling says:

    Ah charades or something similar huh?

    Ok. is it in a bank?

  21. 21

    Oh! And did I ever say that John Mann is a wanker? No?

    Well he is.

    Could it be that Guido is being nice to his new Sunday paymasters?

    Karl Turner says:

    As long as you spell my name right, Guido, as long as you spell it right…it’s all publicity, innit? Ask me if I give a monkey’s what you write about me– coz that’s just the kinda crazy man I am! (Thanks for the mention, how much do I owe you, and do I make out the cheque to P.S., or G.F.?)

  35. 35
    Blowing Whistles says:

    Anyone seen or heard from Michael Dugher lately?

  39. 39
    Blowing Whistles says:

    If that’s a true comment – then Karl has just ‘invited Guido’ to write whatever he wants to about Karl – If true wow! what an open goal – to write ‘whatever’ and ‘any fabrication’ whatsoever- thus there can therefore never be any libel, defamation or slander writs issued … umm

    Owain Glyndwr says:

    You really are a silly little boy. “Blue Nose” came from “Blue Nose irish” they were proddie supporters of glasgow rangers football club who came or lived in Ulster. So to call some one a “Blue Nose” means that you are calling them a proddie or rangers supporter, of course you might be right if you think that all that post here are proddie glasgow rangers supporters. Still used today I believe anyway if you want confirmation ask Anon he is a plastic jock

    Yes. A “blue nose” – a euphemism for a Tory, ie Tories are Blue…Blue Noses. OK

    Much more polite than referring to them as a Bunch of C*unts

    Barclay Bikes – Sorry Boris Bikes ( he is even in hiding now )
    The entire cabinet are awful
    Tory MP’s on a daily basis make fools of themselves
    …I could go on.. but you can keep on apologising.

  74. 74
    Owain Glyndwr says:

    The point is that blue nose is not euphemism for tory, just because something comes into your head does not make it true

    Fish says:

    On the radio, Turner claimed of the confrontation that he saw Cameron aggressively pointing ‘up’ at Jesse.

    A bit of transference methinks given GF’s story – at 5′ 6′ ‘Turner might have to point up at Jesse, but Cameron wouln’t need to.

    Diane Fatbutt says:

    Poor little Karl Turner probably inherited his shortarse genes – and his small man syndrome – so let’s not go too hard on the pathetic little squirt.

    Hey, Karl, what’s the weather like down there, you four-eyed shrimp?

    Well, then, he has two things in common with Sarkozy, and shagging a fit bird isn;t one of them.

    casstrickland says:

    I did and he is one of the most objectionable little gits I ever had to misfortune to meet. No manners no style an out and out thug. Describes himself as a former antiques dealer. One of the specialities of the firm he was working for is Criminal Law, including Fraud, and Government Inquiry matters.

    His father Ken was a full time official with the National Union of Seamen
    Says it all doesn’t it.

    Blowing Whistles says:

    I ask because he is still (irrespective of a baby being born) a dirty two-faced, lying, low-life – ex union (Spad – for Sir Ken Jackson / Blairs ‘favourite union placeman’) piece of dirt – who when he left the entrail of the AEEU went to millbank towers where his bullying commie marxist tactics were used on civil servants – he then ‘got promoted’ (for being a bully) to being one of Geoff (Buff) Hoons 2 Special Advisers at the time of the decidedly dubious Iraq war & death of Dr Kelly. Hoon is known [Public Domain] to have verbally attacked people who have dared to question him – one published retort was of Hoon calling his attacker a ‘low-life’ [Hoon was also one of the exposed MP’s who left Parliament in 2010 – to be shown on Dispatches – who was trying to sell himself to lobbying firms for access to government / HOL]

    Dugher is but anohter product of the marxist, socialist school of commies who graduate out of Warwick University.

    The above is partly why I ask.

  92. 92
    W.W. says:

    It may be old news, but I know the Turners from years gone by, the whole family are essentially thick gobshites milking the public purse in one way or another.

    They used to be very pally with the Prescotts, another family of thick gobshites milking the system.

  94. 94
    W.W. says:

    He gets wonga from RMT, and his rather portly (fat) father used to be big in the RMT.

    The Turners not unlike the Prescott’s, utter tossers to a man.

    Small man syndrome innit. I used to work with one – claimed he had been in the SAS NOT that I believed him !!!

    Blowing Whistles says:

    John Mann – has plenty of form – and in the public domain as well. The phrase ‘Frugal with the truth’ springs to mind. That also applies to perma-tan man Hain the vain. – BTW his who’s who entry – how did he get into it; is also very interesting – just as is Mr Manns entry!

“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.”
