Max Moments: Piers Says Clifford Has “Get Out of Jail Card”


Guido has been having a read of Max Clifford’s 1996 bookRead All About It, in which he promises to reveal all about his love life, sex parties, and secrets of the stars. Clifford is the lucky recipient of some warm words from one Piers Morgan:

“He is trustworthy, always looks after his mates and no tabloid editor worth his or her salt would cross him. It would be self-defeating because he’s the one who has all the big stories…It has also meant Max has brilliantly bought himself a lifetime’s ‘get out of jail’ card. Newspapers won’t turn him over because why would they bite the hand that feeds them? Why kill your golden goose? Max is an honourable rogue.”

Piers would make a fine character witness…

    Andrew Neil asks Harman:

    “What’s the logic of say the online site of the New Statesman coming within this regulation? A site which has no great influence in Westminster, whereas the Guido Fawkes, probably the most influential site in Westminster, should not?”

    What was the gist of her answer, if any?

    Like smoke from a Savile cigar, and a red top mirror, there is still a possibility that this latest saga could have been orchestrated. The form: Milroy-Sloan, and the judge made a point of this in her sentencing.

    Westminster Gossip says:

    The truth is, Max knows where all the bodies are buried he knows eerything about anybody that matters. If Max were ever to reveal his secrets it would be the most interesting comment upon our modern times and how the rich and famous escape taking responsibility!

    There are many hoping he will keep his mouth shut! Who knows what dear Max might say if he is cornered?

    If Max really knows where the bodies are buried, surely that would make him an accessory ? Perhaps the sort of phrase he may be avoiding in his current cirumstances.

    Your Friendly Neighbourhood Publicists' Methods Analysis Service says:

    Just an anecdote about how publicists work:
    Back in the 50’s, a kiss-and-tell mag called Confidential would come up with dirt on Hollywood stars (think: the Danny deVito character in L.A. Confidential). They’d call the studios in advance of publication to tell them what they had and ask the studios for a reaction. (No superinjunctions then or now in America.) Often, Confidential would be told, you got zip, pal, can’t prove shit. Confidential would say, we got pix. Studio would say, what does the picture show? Example: Raymond Burr, a closeted man, was photographed coming out of a bar with a drag queen; Confidential tells the studio Ray’s being a naughty boy. Studio replies, Ray was so inebriated he didn’t notice it was a man– it COULD happen. Confidential replies, OK, that’s the way you want it played? Punchline, Confidential runs a story about how Raymond Burr is a lush who, whilst in his cups, is so far gone he had actually once picked up a man dressed as a woman, so desperate was he for a ride home and a possible roll in the hay that he hadn’t looked closely enough.
    Moral of the story, boys and girls, sometimes ya gotta give the dogs a few treats to keep them from biting your ankle.

    Who's been a naughty boy then? says:

    Police are investigating the theft of more than £20,000 from a Christmas savings club in Wiltshire. The landlord of the Royal Oak pub in Shrewton, where the money was collected during the year to spend over the festive season, has also gone missing Malcolm Levesconte, 59, was last seen on Sunday.

    Officers from Wiltshire Police believe the 59-year-old boarded a ferry at Portsmouth on Sunday evening bound for St Malo in France. Police believe between 20 and 30 thousand pounds, which had been paid into the fund by customers, has been stolen.

    1. Never store anything of value on them
    2. Never rely on them
    3. Never lend them to anyone.

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.”
