The Many Apologies of “Dr” Eoin Clarke

He’s sorry, he’s sorry, he’s so, so sorry… Eoin Clarke has been busy apologising again this afternoon. Clarke came to prominence with his seminal PhD study of the history of Irish feminism entitled ‘Feck arf, get me dinner’ and has now risen to the very top of his new field: conspiratorial online left-wing smearing. Last month he was forced to grovel to Ashcroft for smearing him with false allegations, then it was Health Minister Anna Soubry, and now the left-wing loony has had to apologise to Circle Health:

“In several posts on my blog “The Green Benches” in 2012, I made a number of defamatory statements about Circle Health. I now acknowledge that there was no truth to those statements … I would like to offer my sincere apologies to Circle Health for any inconvenience and damage which the untrue statements in my blog have caused. I have removed the offending posts from the blog and undertaken not to repeat the allegations which I made.”

You have to wonder what Eoin’s only reader – Ed Miliband – has to say about it all.

      Didn’t our friends at the BBC pick up on someof these allegations? I seem to remember the Toady programme’s sanctimonious, posh lefty, Sarah Montague, giving Circle Health’s Ali Parsa a really hard time a few weeks back on their financials.

      If I’m right, perhaps the BBC will also say sorry. I think I’ve only heard one apology from them so far this week. Given their current performance, they’re slacking.

      NE Frontiersman says:

      From his Green Benches blog: ‘ I took it as a given that people would realise that Lord Ashcroft is not a trained medical doctor…’

      What would make them think so? Lord Ashcroft does not put the monicker’ Doctor’ in front of his name, a practice some might consider a trifle misleading.

      May I further add that he looks like the sort of chap whoes father would feel a great sense of forboding when told “Im bringing my new partner for the weekend”

        Eoewn’s Euewenion’s Ouewen’s What-the-fuck-ever’s parents are almost certainly your garden-variety progressive-on-someone-else’s-coin public sector lefties, and would insist on having a fucking garden party with sparklers if he brought a piece of rough trade home, punctuated with awkward silences as the happy couple disappear at regular intervals to ‘secretly’ fellate each other in the en-suite.

    So what indeed would Ed say! Hope he has a dictaphone. Can’t imagine anyone will be listening. Ideally it won’t have a ‘play’ button and we will be none the wiser. Come to think of it, I have yet to hear him speak on anything with the same effect…

    I was jogging through the park earlier when I spotted a women breast feeding her baby.

    I stopped and said, “Do you mind!”

    “What? It’s perfectly natural,” she said.

    “I know,” I replied. “I just noticed that you had a breast free”

    Hmm, this chap seems just the sort for us. Excellent credentials, sound approach to fact based journalism. Newsnight anyone? We could start him on a simple Jersey based contract on 450K for an eight part series….

    Well, that was a months worth of work, must get off to Tuscany to relieve the stress.

    I’m against the Tory NHS reform, but this guy is about as helpful to the cause as a Bill Clinton campaign against sexual harassment in the workplace.
