Laws Landlord Lundie Loses Out For Love

David Laws’ landlord/lover Jamie Lundie, who gained notoriety following the revelations over his partner’s expenses in 2010, has made an intriguing job move this week. Lundie has left his post as Edelman’s public affairs MD to a less conspicuous position at the spinmeisters’ new reputation and risk advisory division. Why could that be?

According to PRWeek the Cabinet Office had raised concerns over a potential conflict of interest arising from Law’s promotion to the Department for Education, with a government spokesman confirming: “Immediately on appointment to ministerial office and at Laws’ instigation, Laws had a meeting with the Cabinet Office director of propriety and ethics to discuss the handling of his interests”. Lundie is denying his job change has anything to do with any conflict of interest. But then he is a spinner…

    Law is innocent

    Murdoch and all his employees are innocent

    All our crooked clients are innocent

    That is why they pay us milllions to repeat the message

    If you do not agree, we will send in Carter Fuck or Shillings and Pence (though they need reputation advoice nowadays as well) !

    If Laws was sacked and investigated by the police, as he ought to be, or there was a right to recall MPs, as Lib Dems promised, this would not be a problem.

    DISGRACE like crime does pay…

    Cheat the taxpayer and two years later you can win a Cabinet seat. He should have been prosecuted not promoted. How can we ever have confidence in a political class who talked loudly about integrity and principle yet see cheating as an occupational necessity.

    Put all politicians in a sack and drop them into the North Sea…

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“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.”
