Sally Says Sorry

Sally Bercow has apologised for naming Lord McAlpine on twitter last week. She’s now expecting a lawyer’s letter:

“Yes, I have apologised for McAlpine tweet. In which I noted that his name was trending (which, at the time, it was). I was irresponsible. I have not heard from McAlpine’s lawyers. Tho’ I may do. As may thousands of Twitter users, some of whom tweeted far worse. Very sorry. Was irresponsible & mischievous. Libellous? I don’t think so. But we’ll have to see…”

McAlpine’s team is reportedly scouring the internet for any mention of his name. A certain Guardian journalist should be feeling nervous…

    Bet she doesn’t mean it though.

    Kebab Time says:

    Its funny how the victim has been discredited by the BBC, some may say its a cock up, others a conspiracy.

    Either way it has been a horrendous time for victims of child abuse.

    Lovely photo. Aren’t Labour a bunch of charmers?

    Personally I hadnt heard the allegation about Lord McAlpine until I read the tweet from Sally Bercow.

    I hope that the lawyers take her for every (publicly funded) penny coming into her (publicly funded) household.

      “Libellous? I don’t think so.”
      Err – I do. I predict that a suitably generous/painful donation will shortly be made at her expense to a charity of Lord McAlpine’s choosing (preferrably one which supports the victims of abuse)

      I hope he sues the arse off George Moonbat as well and leaves him broke and broken.

    Stu says:

    How the fuck can that brainless cow describe what she did as simply mischievous. It was libel pure and simple and I hope she gets taken to court. Could be the end of that pompous twat Bercow into the bargain. Happy days.

      What a plonker. says:

      She is a despicable hypocritical attention seeking Socialist nobody and
      I hope that Lord McAlpine sues her for malicious libel.

      Much though I loathe Gordon Brown for his Pol Pot year zero style of Continuity Blair ZaNuLab trashing of Britain, he at least believed he was doing the right thing, and knows how to behave at a remembrance day ceremony, unlike the clown in Bristol.

    Old Tory Bigot says:

    Does McAlpines team serious expect to be able to expunge every mention of his name in connection with the false allegations from the web?


    • 11
      Operation Crossbow says:

      No but they can go after those who work for larger corporations or those who they know have money or are public figures.


    • 67
      Ides says:

      McAlpine’s team must be concerned about expunging every mention of his name in connection with the false allegations; but they are delighted at the prospect of initiating a massive wealth redistribution programme, from any quarter, in favour of their, seriously traduced, client and their own fee generation prospects.

    Stupid, stupid, woman. She needs to keep her big gob shut.

    Operation Crossbow says:

    BBC interviewing some lefty university hack right now who is bleating that the BBC has enemies in Fleetstreet and its competitors. Of course the BBC has made no attempt to destroy its competitors has it ?

    All those who are trying to blame Murdoch and the Daily Mail forget it was the Guardian that ran the story last week saying that McAlpine was wrongly identified. That was the coup de grace for Entwhistle as even Humphries pointed out on Radio 4.

        I saw that interview- yet more claims that cuts caused the problem!
        How much would it have cost to show Meesham a photo of his alleged abuser and give McAlpine a right of reply?
        Why did Van Klaveren sign off the programme without a shred of evidence to back up the Newsnight allegations?

        Jeffrey Bernard says:

        Twatson says that his intervention in PMQs was nothing to do with North Wales or the noble Lord, but was about something completely different. Some speculate that Twatson was trying to reheat allegations about a long-deceased Tory who was referred to in Edwina Currie’s diaries as having a well-known predisposition for small boys.

    Don’t forget Tom Watson, Guido. You know the Tom Watson that stirred the shit with his question at PMQS.
    Why has Guido not mentioned Watson’s name since, that’s WATSON.

    Well old George Moonbat has got it coming I hope.

    My cup of schadenfreude overfloweth.

    As the wife of the Speaker people reading her tweet may have thought she had access to certain information which the public weren’t yet privvy to.
    The fact that she incorporated a smug photo just exacerbated it.

    Arnold J Rimmer says:

    Loving it.

    I see she is moaning that she wishes the attention was back on the child abuse and not the tweets.

    I am sure most people do, Bercow, but exactly who is to blame for it being off the investigation ?


  20. 27
    Sandra in Accounts says:

    Can anyone believe the gushing crap on every BBC news platform at the moment?

    They are interviewing each other FFS!

    Dimblebore on Today this morning was a disgrace – why did they not have someone on who could counter the fuckers claims & intimated defence for their actions?

    They know, we all know – they wanted to smear the Tories – the old enemy & Lady Thatcher too.

    They really are bastards – Marxist bastards, close the place.


    • 41
      Old Tory Bigot says:

      Witness the many supportive remarks in their comments sections.

      You know “how unfair to scapegoat beloved auntie! I would gladly sell my children to support the BBC in its hour of need”

      You could almost be forgiven for thinking they made them up themselves.


      • 59
        Mrs Kindleysides, Penrith says:

        They probably did make it up. The left are cheats – they don’t understand fair play. They find it incredibly difficult to accept they have faults or are ever wrong.

        This is why this smear on poor old Lord M took place. The BBC were only thinking of their own reputation and not all the poor kids who were supposedly exposed to abuse.

        The whole debacle has backfired on the BBC beautifully and now, rather than show humility, they are interviewing each other and trying to sing their praises; it’s pathetic, spineless and cowardly behaviour.

          Rhonddablue says:

          They don’t really subscribe to the old view that when the messenger becomes the story, it’s time to go, do they?

          Considering the way they doctored that video of HM to make her appear in a bad light and were then exposed for manipulating (or even forging) the results of Blue Peter contests, I shouldn’t be at all surprised if they don’t write their own comments.

      Feeling down says:

      I agree , Watson started it , the bbc salivated at the thought of screwing the Tories and its all gone tits up.
      End the beeb , all private , no license fees that’s the way forward.
      Labour have gone too far this time and caused this national crisis.
      Resign Watson now.

    Sophie says:

    Sorry Sally, you slandered, defamed and libelled Lord McAlpine.

    Luckily your short arse huband has deep pockets filled with taxpayer loot.

    And as for that certain Guardian propagandist – oh boy, this is going to be delicious.

    It is one thing slandering, defaming & libelling hard working scientists who disagree with your green eco fascism, quite another to do so to a well connected man of means.

      Lager the wagons luvvies the plebs are revolting says:

      Unfortunately for the BBC their ingrained hatred of the “Tory party” and institutional socialist bias got the better of discretion and it seems to have affected their common-sense and self-preservation as someone somewhere inadvertently has pressed the self-destruct button at New Broadcasting House and not only did the Director General not know that they had he doesn’t even appear to know that a self destruct button existed existed


  22. 36
    Oh for gawds sake... says:

    The spiteful left-wing wench knew exactly what she was tweeting and the effect it would have.

    She miscalculated though, assuming that by now McAlpine’s lawyers would be fighting off claims about his client being a kiddy-fiddler – not sueing the ass of everyone who defamed him.

    I hope McAlpine takes her for every penny her midget husband has squeezed out of the teat of the taxpayer.

    This is likely to blow away a lot of people who seem to have abandoned discretion and common sense and view anything they tweet on”Twitter” as not subject to the liable laws….they are likely to find out the untruth of that over the coming days/weeks

    Arthur Dent says:

    McAlpine’s lawyer is quoted this morning in the Telegraph saying that “it appeared that George Monbiot was the first person to tweet the name”. Monbiot’s subsequent mea culpa on his blog site also seems to admit that he defamed McAlpine. With the Grauniad in severe financial difficulties this could be very, very expensive for him.

      If Moonbat’s twitter account is unconnected with the Guardian then I can’t see them volunteering to underwrite the costs and damages and why should they?

      As for Sally, all she can do is hope for mercy or a decision that she’s simply not worth suing.

      Unhygienix the Fishmonger says:

      I hope Monbiot and Bercow are both taken to the cleaners by McAlpine. And Watson too.

      Silencing these vicious leftist smear artists would be the greatest service McAlpine could the UK

      None of the above says:

      Hopefully but as she is so much ‘up her own arse’ she will probably change her name by deed poll to ‘EJ03 GGY’ just so she can still have a personal registration (on her 12 year old Saxo)


  34. 72
    Andrew Efiong says:

    She’s a public figure and should know better.

    Instead she’s been flushed out as a shrill imbecile, exposed for all to see. She can’t duck responsibility here, she knew exactly what her moronic tweets were about.


  35. 75
    Riggsy Brown says:

    Of the few positives to come out of this sad, sorry fiasco, the prospect of Slapper Bitch Bercow getting her long overdue comeuppance is amongst the most appetising. Slug Twatson also faces some awkward questions concerning his probable collaboration with the BOIJ and/or Newsnight. The timing of his HoC statement could hardly have been coincidental seeing how it neatly teed up/dovetailed the Newsnight piece. Gonna be interesting!

    is it libelous to point out who the news night report was about?

    neither sal or george said mcalline was a pedophile, they just made clear who newsnight were talking about.

    how cowardly to think you have the evens to suggest the was a pedophile in the thatcher government and not name then

    Ed Balls Fisted My Hamster says:

    Boris absolutely square-middle bang on the money today:
    “It was like a dream come true for any vaguely resentful and Left-of-centre BBC producer. It was a chance to pour unlimited ordure on a man who – in their book – jolly well had it coming. He is rich, he is a toff, he is a Lord, he is a Tory, and – joy of joys – he is an EX-AIDE TO MRS THATCHER. ”

    That’s all it EVER was about, the BBC don’t care about the nonces or their victims, it’s ENTIRELY about shafting Tories. It’s so obvious when every news item which carried the item prior to the retractions always contained the opening gambit “A Thatcher-era leading Tory figure”, and now it’s “Thatcher Aide and leading Tory figure Lord McAlpine”. Bastards, the lot of them. Hang them out to dry.

    Plus, we shouldn’t be (just) asking why the BBC’S DG has been granted a year’s salary for falling on his sword, we should also (nay, *mainly*) be asking “£450,000? FFS the DG of the BBC gets a salary of four hundred and fifty fucking grand a year? You are fucking kidding, right? Half a fucking mill? Do fucking what?”

    PS do NOT google images for “BBC” with your content filter switched off. Unless you are Sally Bercow.


    • 96
      Lord Mandelbum of Fondleboys says:

      £450K, though astronomical, is relatively cheap. The previous DG was on a truly ludicrous £800K or so.

    Neo Rupert says:

    The DG of the BBC has just resigned because he did not know what was going on & he was ultimately responsible, to his credit he has gone with dignity.

    For the same reasons will the Speaker now resign ?

    Did he not know what his wife was saying ?

      I really like this. Please do not hold your breath though. Just look at the picture of Mrs. Bercow.I don’t think the word”dignity” can be part of her makeup.Remember that actions speak louder than words.
