Mensch Reports Business Partner Luke Bozier to Police

Louise Mensch has reported her former Menshn business partner Luke Bozier to the police after hackers posted the contents of his email account on-line, including nude pictures of himself and his attempts to search for sex from “young girls”. Apparently he loves “Brazilian teens so much. It’s almost worth flying all the way to Rio to get some jailbait action.”

Tech-blog The Kernel broke the story this afternoon and the entire dossier is still online. Regular readers will remember David Cameron welcoming Bozier to the Tories when he defected from Labour in January of this year. He even quoted the former Blair staffer’s statement during PMQs.

One almighty cock-up…

Full Statement from King Edward VII’s Hospital

It is with very deep sadness that we confirm the tragic death of a member of our nursing staff, Jacintha Saldanha. 

Jacintha has worked at the King Edward VII’s Hospital for more than four years. She was an excellent nurse and well-respected and popular with all of her colleagues. 

We can confirm that Jacintha was recently the victim of a hoax call to the hospital. The hospital had been supporting her throughout this difficult time. 

John Lofthouse, Chief Executive at King Edward VII’s Hospital, says: “Our thoughts and deepest sympathies at this time are with her family and friends. Everyone is shocked by the loss of a much loved and valued colleague.” 

Lord Glenarthur, Chairman of King Edward VII’s Hospital, says, “This is a tragic event. Jacintha was a first class nurse who cared diligently for hundreds of patients during her time with us. She will be greatly missed.”

UPDATE: St James’s Palace:

“Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are deeply saddened to learn of death of Jacintha Saldanha. Both their Royal Highnesses were looked after so wonderfully well by everyone at King Edward VII’s Hospital. Their thoughts and prayers with her family, friends and colleagues at this hard time.”

Nasty.

Rob Colvile reviews Russell Brand’s new book:

“Oddly, the person I feel sorriest for isn’t Brand himself – although he certainly comes across as a rather pitiable figure, projecting his own brokenness on to the world around him – but Johann Hari. Drummed out of Fleet Street for plagiarism, the former Independent columnist has washed up as “my mate Johann, who’s been doing research for this book”. For a genuinely talented polemicist, it would have been a humbling experience to have to treat this sub-undergraduate dross as the scintillating wisdom of a philosopher-king.”



Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
