Cabinet Office Spy’s “Specialist Policy” Mission

Yesterday’s poorly worded/suspicious Cabinet Office statement on Prince Charles’ spy in the heart of government had the distinct whiff of a cover-up. Just who is the mystery man, or lady, seconded from the Royal Household? Why is he, or she, there? What exactly is he, or she, doing? Guido has learned that the representative from the Household of the Prince of Wales’ remit centres around a “specialist policy role”. He has reason to believe it is a lady as well.

Despite the obvious implication that someone with close links to the Royal Family is working on government policy, a Cabinet Office spokesman insists that is not the case and they have no role in legislation. The official kick back still refuses to reveal the staffer’s identity, this time on the rather tenuous grounds that it would not be fair since he/she is in a “relatively junior”. Senior sources in the department are now emphasising to Guido that the unnamed person’s role is unrelated to their work with the Prince of Wales and that high-security clearance is not “required”.

So why not just be completely transparent about the arrangement?

Maybe Dave could phone up that shady royal benefactor who got him his job, so we could get to the bottom of this once and for all…

    It’s not ” These ones” or “those ones”

    Just ‘ these’ and ‘those’ FFS

    ‘refuses to reveal the staffer’s identity, this time on the rather tenuous grounds that it would not be fair since he/she is in a “relatively junior”.’

    What total, complete, and utter bollocks of a reason is that?

    Fair? Junior? Who cares?

    What are they running, a kindergarden or a government?

    Refusing to reveal… Who do they think they are, the BBC?

    I read somewhere His Royal Highness got three ‘O’ levels. Hard to believe.

    Quite.

    But unlike all the other apparatchiks mentioned, you can bet your life on the fact that Prince Charles is 100% supportive of the UK.

    and furthermore, I have heard it said that among the world’s most influential people, the most sought-after invitation was to a dinner held by Prince Charles on RY Britannia. Funny think that it was scrapped, don’t you think?

    It’s HM’s bloody government, and if Cammo was running anything for me, I’d want to keep an eye on what’s happening as well. Come to think of it, he is and I am. Bearing in mind what a facile pile of pusillanimous inexactitude inhabits No. 10, the more people keeping an eye on Mr Devious the better.

    Odd place the UK. We allow terrorists to become MPs. And then worry that the next head of state has a member of staff assisting with some government work.#

    Who cares?

    ‘Lady’? What is wrong with the word ‘woman’? All ladies are women. The reverse is certainly not true.

    I bet she’ll be easy to spot. She’ll be dressed like Marie Antoinette, wearing a tiara, and totally out of touch with the 21st century.

    Sincere apologies, Wiki. Forget ‘hard to believe’, substitute ‘How?’

    Quiet Bat Person says:

    “Charles has the most infuriating manner: he manufactures a faux astonishment and exasperation with the ways of the world.

    His whole demeanor is of a head-shaking, homespun wisdom, a regal Thoreau in his bespoke Walden, patronising the rest of us with the pitying smile of a higher understanding.

    The truth is this is the defensive front of a man who is too slow to keep up, who just doesn’t get it and therefore dismisses it as an inconvenient reality and a terrible mistake.”

    This will turn out to be either:

    * basic preparation for the mechanics of the handover when Brenda retires or dies

    * some highly charged issue like the precise amount of oats to be allowed in organic hob-nob biscuits

    Susie says:

    Yes I think AA Gill’s got him nailed. You know a man by his friends and his best friend is eco fascist Jonathan Porritt. Plaster the countryside in wind turbines and freeze old people to death but not at Highgrove.

    Hypocrites!

    Remind me, isn’t Cameron descended from William IV and his “real” wife (Mrs Jordon) before he married bigamously married some German Princess? Therefore shouldn’t he be King anyway?

    Sounds like a very good idea to make sure HRH has people in his office who understand how Government works before he becomes King.

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.”
