What “Daddy” Did Next: Fred Michel Lands New Job

Jeremy Hunt was the great survivor of the BSkyB deal, getting himself a promotion, but it seems his texting partner in crime – News Corp lobbyist Fred Michel – has landed a new gig as well.

“Daddy”, as he became affectionately known by Hunt, is off to be European Director of Public Affairs and Communication at global telecoms giants Telefonica.

Big drink tonight!

    I own a telefonica franchise. I’m not happy about this. I’m going to write a letter of disgust to the board of directors.

    Enraged as always,
    David Cameron

    “””great survivor “””….LOL

    Do you think it’s too soon to start to interview staff for my Office in Brussels?

    I expect he’ll have a great time. Who wants to be average?

    Fred Michel says:

    My new job is to mislead people, pull the wool over their eyes and lead them up the garden path.

    Well not if he goes to the open university with his mum. But never mind the serious stuff, I think you’ve missed a detail.

    The facts dear boy says:

    Not usually one to spoil a good story for the sake of accuracy. On this occasion I do think it worth pointing out that the one time only that Hunt texted him as Daddy was when he became a daddy and their wives both dropped their sprogs in the same maternity ward.

    Poor sod indeed. Who would want to be named Gordon Brown?

    Thith ith outrageouth – I hope that the BBC don’t cover this.

    I and my NUT sponsors (NUTters) need to know how this one managed to escape the bog standard, prizes-for-all, uniformity that we demand from our education system. We demand a judge-led inquiry into how this happened.

    In our world, no one must be able to grow taller than another – this is not the Britain that we have fought for and have strived to create.

    Spoilsport! Completely correct but then the fun for both Guido and us too is to deliberately add a different slant to all things faintly newsworthy.
    Your own comment in fact continues the theme.
    “Bouncing babies “eh?.

    The guillotines were French, not English or British.

    I wonder if he will get posted to Telefónica’s Spanish headquarters

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.”
