CCHQ Mole Hunt and Other Sunday Column Stories

As Guido revealed in yesterday’s Daily Star Sunday column, the hunt is on in CCHQ:

“MANY in Conservative Party HQ are increasingly convinced Labour has a mole working in the building. Beyond the usual media leaks, confidential private polling appears to have got directly into Labour’s hands. As the party moves on to an election footing, the Tories want to be sure their battle plans are secure. Background checks are quietly being made to establish the true-blue credentials of newer staff.”

Guido is watching this one…

Other fun includes Vicky Pryce’s terrible choice in men, MacShame, Tory grandees reactions to the EU vote rout and Luciana Berger backfiring attacks.

It’s online now here.

    I see that that wretch Jenny Watson has been reappointed as head of The Electoral Commission.

    Wasn’t she supposed to be incapable of organising a piss up in a brewery?

        Just remember Cameron is so bright he sends texts to alleged criminals to let them know just how new and exciting it is to ride a horse. He’s so bright he’s spent more time yapping on about the Queen than inspiring the youth of this nation to world class excellence. He’s so bright he castigates the nations Youth [what's this an attempt to win them over?] for what he perceives is their lack of moral backbone even though most of his best mates are facing criminal charges.

        Surely if leaks are coming from a certain small group, it should be easy to pick out who is leaking. It shows the desparation of Labour that they need to resort to dishonesty to fight against the Government. They dont have an original idea between them !

      How much do CCHQ pay their little helpers, if it is like the Liebore lot well there is the answer, of course not paying the little helpers ensures that you only get those guaranteed true blue because daddy is well loaded.

    The BBC rewrites history in minutes says:

    Radio 4 last night at 9.30 looked at Europe and quite rightly pointed out that until Blair came along (and a bit of Kinnock) that Labour had always been against EU membership and the Tories for membership.

    Come the ten o’clock news and the BBC reporter in one of those odd BBC set pieces where a BBC reporter interrogates another BBC reporter in the studio stated that the Labour party was traditionally pro EU.

        No. Labour were very much against it as they considered it pro capitalism. The TUC on the whole is still of that opinion.

        Wilson had a devil of a battle against the Wedgewood Benns of his party who were strongly agin membership.

        Ii is only since new Labour that they have become pro EU.

            its a party splitting issue – thats one of the problems in facing it – but now its possible that others (euros) will face it for us – which just leaves us with the original problem of responsible government – balancing the books, no inflation – those sort of things

      Common sense at last. says:

      Gisela Stuart made a surprisingly strong case why we should leave the EU as Lisbon is unworkable. She like many now believes that we should remain in the single market but outside of the EU. And that is what I thought I was voting yes for in the Common Market referendum.

    Lots of new jobs in Tory Britain – Workfare jobs, a full week’s work for £70. Apprenticeships for the over 50s in shelf stacking and floor washing for £2.70 an hour for a year and no job at the end of it. The sick and disabled forced to do Workfare indefinitely.

    3 year sanction without benefit for anyone who fails to demonstrate the requisite National Socialist zeal.

    Spy / Spies? Not just in the Conservative party.
    UK security from all governments, to industry and royalty has been famous for leaking like a seive / colander since WWII. The Cambridge 5 introduced the idea that nefarious practice paid and loyalty and integrity disappeared out the window. Few wouldn’t consider selling their granny if it got them one step higher up the ladder or added to their bank balance.
