Burstow’s Radio Silence

It is worth noting what Guido had to say about Paul Burstow’s involvement in dealing with the Rennard allegtions back in May 2009:

“Paul Burstow, Chief Whip in the House of Commons, phoned a number of female LibDem PPCs personally to assure them that Chris Rennard would no longer be in charge of their careers. A number of Cowley Street staffers are rejoicing at the departure of of the Chief Executive.  Mostly female staff…”

Burstow has just had a nightmare under pressure from LBC’s Julia Hartley-Brewer:

No answers in a textbook car crash interview. Guido is working on getting the audio…

UPDATE: You can listen to the interview here:

    It’s a warning that I’m in the vicinity…

    Andy Burnham shares your pain.


    Lying bastard just like Dave protecting or rewarding Nicholson for failure.

  6. 6
    Where are Tony Blair's expenses says:

    The LieDem car crash goes on and yet the in breds at Eastleigh will still vote for them.

    What is wrong with the voters of this country, Rotherham was another example, LibDem/Lab/Con can commit crimes, lie, borrow money your great grand children will have to pay back, convert hospitals into death camps and still people vote for them.

    Exactly how thick do you have to be to vote for one of the main parties

    Sir William Wade says:

    That spoof LibDem logo features two right hands. Better than Gideon’s two left feet I suppose.

    The Right Honourable George Osborne Mp says:

    I think we’ve got a very clear message, a loud and clear message that Britain cannot let up in dealing with its debts, dealing with its problems, cannot let up in making sure that Britain can pay its way in the world.

    Julia HB has become my broadcaster of choice.

    She covers the same ‘human interest’ { code for ‘Women’s hour’} topics as Victoria Derbyshire or Shelagh Fogarty, but without the stultifying dullness.

    Point worthy of note, here Mr Q. It’s an independent radio show gets to ask the difficult questions. Our envy of the world with a remit to educate & inform, compulsory funded broadcaster is less interested.

    Casual Observer says:

    That was not as bad as this:


    Liberal Democrat B0b H@rgreaves was convicted on 13 counts back in 2006, for offences committed in 1990. GBP 3 he paid some girls for molestation and a sex act. The girls were about 11 years old at the time.

    The savant 10.4 highway patrol says:

    That was great! I think we can all conclude that Mr Burstow is up to his neck in it either for doing sod all or reporting up the chain of command and dropping Clegg well and truly in the doo doo. Wonderful!

  33. 33
    The savant 10.4 highway patrol says:

    Well what do you expect from the other two .

    They both work for. Radio Five. DEAD….

    Tay King-dePisse says:

    I am now a minute older for watching some mong dressed up as Where’s Wally being chased by his equally-pissed friends; but I am no wiser. I tell a lie. I am now wise to the fact that YouTube is full of self-indulgent video posters, some of whom also post on this blog, or so it would seem.

    The egregious Paul Burstow is my local MP (I didn’t vote for him). I have had cause to write to him twice in the last 5 years and didn’t received a reply to (or even acknowledgement of) either of my letters…

    It doesn’t surprise me in the least that he didn’t answer questions on air

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
