Mail Declares War on Leveson

20121116-082954.jpgThe Mail has launched an all-out assault on Lord Justice Leveson this morning with an investigation that claims to expose one of Brian’s chief advisers as a “central figure” of the McAlpine debacle.

Sir David Bell is a trustee of the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, the crisis-hit amateur hacks who produced the infamous McAlpine Newsnight report. Bell also co-founded the Media Standards Trust, the body that helped set up tabloid-badgers Hacked Off. It’s more Thick of It than Watergate, but it does highlight the cosy close-knit group lobbying for an unfree press.

Seconds out…

    Same as – why do politicians require so many advisers? Because they don’t have a single, workable idea in their tiny minds. People in ‘high places’ these days are surrounded by armies of special advisers, PR types and so on, usually paid for by the poor sodding taxpayer.

By channeling his share income from the Daily Mail Group through a Bermuda-registered company, the Viscount makes use of his non-dom status to avoid paying UK taxes.”

    Clearly shows what a left-wing stitch up the Leveson enquiry was. A political war launched by the Left against the non left-wing media, in the hope of making the BBC even more dominant in news broadcasting, than it all ready is. Then dead uncle Jimmy reared his ugly head and the BBC’s death warrant was signed. Not only exposing a culture of criminal sleaze, but also implicating their precious news department in a cover-up and then compounding it by smearing a Conservative with a story concocted by a Labour shill organisation, connected to a senior adviser to Leveson.

    What a cosy little set-up they have.

    It pays a lot less tax than it would if it didn’t take advantage of various loopholes. Then it bitches about companies like Starbucks, Amazon and Google doing exactly the same. If they want corporations to pay the full monty, they should get parliament to close those loopholes, but I can’t see the Guardian doing a turkey-voting-for-Christmas act. Can you? Even if Parliament were lobbied to change the tax laws, I can’t see those turkeys voting for Christmas, either.

    Thanks to that Hodge woman we all know we are two billion pounds down the tubes because of Northern Crock .

    We are over 400 k down on Earwhistle so Macalpine’s legal fees are a drop in the ocean .

    If you close the BBc down completely now we might just get back to break even by the end of 2013 .

    They are reminiscent of the pigs in Animal Farm. What could be more odious than these smug self regarding left-liberals clubbing together and stealthily imposing their facile “we know best” views on the rest of us? The Mail exposure pointed to their continued involvement in influencing policy making. The freedom of the gutter press is important in exposing people who seek to undemocratically control our lives.

    The 100 people who walked out of the vote without voting saw their favoured non white contender disallowed from a shortlist position.

    Whistle Blower says:

    Common Purpose is communism under another name – communitarianism – and rose in mysterious circumstances and with obscure funding after the fall of the Berlin wall.

    Its graduates, primarily senior management candidates across the public sector including the police, within the media and academia are urged to “lead beyond authority” in a post-democratic society. Its training seminars are secret and its graduates sworn to secrecy.

    The most significant impact appears to be the closing of public sector ranks and the creation of co-ordinated “administrative” processes to undermine the liberty and privacy of the individual linked to the wholesale collection and sharing of private data. This intrusive bureaucracy is driven by socialist imperatives which are presumed to be in the interests of the public rather than tested by mandate or by consent. The Common Purpose ethos has resulted in increasing arrogance on the part of public officials and a distancing between public servants and those they are supposed to serve.

    Those who are in a position to do so and not yet tainted need to ask serious questions about this organisation and bring it out of the shadows.

    Interesting that, in legal terms, the phrase ‘common purpose’ is used to impute criminal liability on all who take part in an enterprise. Wonder why they chose that name?

    Its funny how Huge Grant got off [from a criminal conviction] for verbally screaming “I hope your children die of cancer” at a photographer / journo some years ago – save that the only logical explanation was that the Journo must have made a few buck$ out of grunt to not press charges.

    Blowing Whistles says:

    This word “legal” keeps tripping many of you up – It may be legal – but is it “Lawful”? When enough of you recognise that there is a big big difference – then we’ll be getting somewhere won’t we?

    And when the legal rats “infesting” the HOC & HOL are truly found out for their twisting of the truth inside out – we can make proper use of all the lamp posts in Britain.

    Blowing Whistles says:

    It’s now becoming a ‘duck shoot’ now that those who have preached such inverted logic have been FOUND OUT by the growing numbers the public. And all the journo’s who bought into the Inverted logic also have no where to run.

    People power rules – so the wigged ones better take note also.

    Some people need to look ‘properly’ at who pulled the purse strings of Lenin and then Stalin.

    BTW Stalin was not his real name. It was an adopted name meant to imply ‘steel’.

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.”
