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

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

      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.

        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?.

    somebody else who is known as DADDY but in his language it is PAPI

    one …. silvio berlusconi .

    i am sure fred michel s justification for attracting the soubriquet cannot at ll be compared with anything the great silvio may have done to claim it .

    “””great survivor “””….LOL

    early days Guido. You know its only a matter of time, Hunt is a serial offender, he will not be able to help himself.

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

        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.

      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.

Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
