5 Year-Old Vintage Hennessy


The Sunday Telegraph’s Patrick Hennessy has gone big today on his mate Damian McBride’s confirmation two weeks ago of the truth of a Guido story about a secret email system dating back from 2007.

Hennessy’s rival John Rentoul over at the Sunday Indy mocks the vintage of the story:

Truth will out. Eventually.

      So who is going to take out an injunction on Tone B’Liar then, if more evidence has come to light, McBride will certainly be no friend of B’Liar, come on you £100,000p.a. lads, money where mouth is. Unfortunately in government there is a person who claims to be the heir of B’Liar I wonder if he was trained in the same type of scams.

Did I at any time imply this was “breaking news” rather than just a discussion? Maybe I was holding off till I might be able to get a quote or two– did you think of that?

    It’s not like this information wasn’t known– Damian the Leper figured, just like with those closeted gays who eventually come out long after they are outed, by the time he admitted anything most people’s reaction would be, “Oh, THAT piece of stale news? Now tell me something I DON’T know!” So McBride wrote about it two weeks ago, and Queen Anne is still dead; he waited five years, so two more weeks on my part wasn’t going to make much of a difference.

    Using the term “choc ice” to describe someone who is deemed to be “black” on the outside but “white” on the inside is by definition a discriminatory term. It supposes that there is a clear difference between being black or white other than merely the colour of someones skin. So my question to those who band this term about is what issues are distinctly black about a person as opposed a white person and are they saying that the colour of a persons skin does make a difference on a host of issues. If so what ?

          A far more common appellation than “H-N,” which is used to refer to people of colour thought to have “sold out to the Man” for a position of prominence, in much the same way that servant slaves played up to the Massa to be better treated than the manual labour slaves, is “Oreo,” which implies that for all one’s Bl*ack app*e*arances, one is “Wh*ite” inside, i.e., shares what some of the Politically-Correct crowd call the hegemonic cultural beliefs of the dominant culture.

    I having a great chill out weekend @ Chipping Norton with friends Andy & of course Rebecca who else plus plenty of chilled bubbly from the unlimited Chateau du taxpayer le peasants, very easy to frequently quaff on. Both Andy & Rebecca have been of great help with 2011 Census Results which are going to be released very soon but I give a Cast Iron Guarantee they have not been massaged in anyway so you will not see the population figure of 80 million plus anywhere. True there were some problems with the postal census forms but during one of daily chats with Tony he guided in the right direction on how to fix them as he has much greater experience than me. He’s worth every penny of the millions we pay through one of his BVI entities.

    Must get on plenty more Mendacity to do before bedtime, & tomorrow some chap called Nigel Farage is calling in @ No.10, don’t know what for, perhaps he’s after a job or something. Anyway I won’t be there having a sleep over @ Chequers need to get in right frame of mind for our fully deserved short 2 months summer holidays. So one of my minions will soon send this Nigel person on his way, the cheeky blighter, who does he think he is.

    But ok peasants just carry on slaving away & fully paying all of your dues to my Government while we devise many more ways to take even more off you with new Taxes. Need to find a few billions more, from somewhere for Gordon now he has a official UN roll. Looking at introducing a Rain Water Roof Tax something Angela suggest last time I was in Berlin, looks promising.

    Just think you peasants may even get a weeks holiday very soon which of course you will have to stay in UK as flying is for the Elite 1% only, quite right to as we have to take a responsibly hard line for Global Warming issues as propergated 24/7 by the BBC. I’m very relaxed at the excellent efforts by my friend Chris Patten since I installed him as Chairman, a great decision on my part even if I say so.

            I recall a few months back all the media were ranting on about how petrol pri*ces had risen much more than the oil pr*ice had done over the previous 4 months. So I looked at what the difference was over 12 months, a much more logical figure to choose. And blow me if if wasn’t the other way around with the oil pr*ice rising much higher than the petrol pri*ce.

            The moral of this story is do not believe all the crap in the press and on the TV. Cherry picking figures to please the masses of whingers is the natural order of the day for people with a story to sell. Isn’t it Guido?

      Quote the source of what Engels said.

      National Soci@lism and Fascism (Corporatism) were in fact supported by the Catholic church (see what’s happened to them – they got out of line centuries ago). Guess why? National Soci@lism was authoritarian and hierarchical. It focused on the family like Islam does today. The state managed business and controlled the means of production, exchange and communication in the interest of the people, who incidentally largely worked for the state as in the PRC today! Most anti-fascists leave that last bit out. The thing is, National Soci@lism works for the people against predators on people. As to racism, just remember, the evil Nazis were allied with the Japanese and Arab world!

Look at Mao – do you think he or Stalin were going to give up their ‘control’ over the masses bar death.
