John Hayes Calls Andy Coulson a “W***er”

After encouraging guests to be “as outrageous as possible” at a black-tie student dinner in Nottingham last Thursday, the PM’s Senior Parliamentary Adviser John Hayes called Andy Coulson a “w***er” during a conversation after his speech. As one attendee later blogged: “his honesty is most refreshing for politics, especially considering how he is in No.10.”

Hayes did not deny the remark when Guido spoke to him earlier, though claimed he did not recall uttering the words. Multiple sources in the room say otherwise. With their trial scheduled for September, w***ing was Andy Coulson and Rebekah Brooks’ least worry…

            Could be an interesting slander case if he has documentary proof or a witness (e.g. Andy’s mum discovering a festering sock under his bed, when he was 13).

      When Hayes said Coulson was a rhymes-with-“canker”, nobody had to worry about anyone besides Coulson getting their backs up, so WTF, “maybe I said it, maybe I didn’t,” but he’s not going to deny that’s how he feels about it, so OK, Hayes will let you say he said it, whether it was “on the record” or no.

      Of course, in this situation, nobody’s invoking Lobby Rules to cover up who said what, because nobody gives enough of a good damn about what some current No 10 guy said about some former No 10 guy (who’s in hot water on matters seemingly unrelated to his stint at No 10), to want to play “hush-hush, can’t say” games. “Local swivel-eyed loons,” though, is apparently a bird of a completely different feather.

          • Tell me what isn’t a spoiler nowadays, BW. It is clear that the substance of this is pure ephemera. Many commenters feel happy to post on their own topic after the subject has been given a reasonable airing and I do think that as much has been milked out of this as possible.

            But what do you see as the main story of the moment? For me it is Farage who, almost single-handedly is commanding the agendas of the two main parties in a way unprecedented in my experience. And he does not even intend to stand in 2015, preferring to control the main direction without the problems of having to do constituency work. It makes a charade of the whole system and the other party players seem like mere incidentals.

            SC – as you may recall – The key subject matters which I have batted on about for some time here which all ‘3 stooge parties agree on’ are Climate bunkum, The EU and Homosexuality. Of course the other subject that dare not speak its name from the 3 stooge parties has been ‘immigration’ [That’s cheap labour to those who really know their stuff mind].

            The Government ‘and’ [<note] the Opposition (who are ultimately answerable to the Establishment and not the public as the ruse is … the Establishement not actually being those who the public think they are that is) are beholden to their duping moneylending 'friends' in reality – doesn't matter – lefty or righty – it's all part of the game / ruse / dupe upon the masses really However

            Ukip have struck a cord with the masses – in this I/Net age – whereas for decades the MSM have been able to 'control' the publics perception; that thankfully is a thing of the past now – Genie out of the bottle type of thing.

            When the states own government and opposition are agreed upon bunkum, mythology and palpably proven lies – what does that say about the whole process / system – is it not rotten from its highest echelons – and as for the pa3do classes – it appears that Ministers (that's Government ministers) and their desperation to attain that title is where immunity from prosecution appears to lie.

            If for example Ken Clarke and many of his friends are not to be interviewed 'properly – under caution' by the plod in respect of their alleged criminal activities – where lies what is spoken of as a democracy?

            Are the plod being 'lent upon' to conceal the biggest of hypocrites when it comes to child abuse … ACROSS THE POLITICAL SPECTRUM …

            As to matters criminal, they may be symbolic of the malaise but I believe in due process, however ropey, over the lynch mob mentality. I am all for prosecuting those who break the law but the quality of police, prosecutors and judiciary is often found wanting. This has particularly been exacerbated by the awful quality of law transacted by the last regime, where much of it was posturing.

      The only word from UKIP on this has been expressed concern about the implications of ECJ rulings compelling the Churches to marry, possibly allowing statute to trump spiritual law.

      This was only stated in context of UKIP’s position on UK constitutional matters and its position against the subversion of constitutional law through the ECHR / ECJ structures.

      As far as I am aware UKIP are very supporting of civil partnerships and are not homophobic in any way shape or form.

      Their position is fully libertarian. In that their only objection raised on the issue of gay marriage is on concern about the damage it will do to Church and the UK constitution.

      The more important point being glossed over is that the states move in this area is very serious and does represent the merging of Church and State.

      That joining of affairs will have profound implications (as France will soon find out) as it generally leads to unstable structures of governance.

          I think UKIP supporters run counter to your stereotype.

          But, working with the stereotype you present, as has been peddled by the left including Cameron, nationalism and anti-EU are essentially the instinctive reaction to the attack of sovereignty. They both are harking to defense of the constitution.

          The anti-gay thing is more about anti-gay-marriage if there is anything. And that is down to the way this is being pushed through.

          The portrayal that UKIP folk are in some way not aware of or interested in higher concepts is a false projection. Farage’s speeches usually talk directly to these points in very clear terms.

          Any notion that defending liberty and sovereignty requires a ‘superior intelligence’ or ‘knowledge of a higher framework’ is lefty fiction.

          It is moreover a false fiction.

          Defending liberty is as simple as stopping those who would deny it.

          Being a libertarian boils down to knowing very simply what is morally right, and what is wrong, and believing that people should be free to make their own decisions.

          Defending sovereignty requires nationalism. Nationalism is not bad provided it is not used to overtly deny liberty.

          It is the denial of liberty and democratic expression which the LibLabCon and in particular the EU are wishing to do.

          The change in voter sentiment towards UKIP reflects that the people have become aware of this and are now starting their reaction to it.

          Though I do not like the idea of homosexuality, there are some gays whom I like more than other straight people. I judge them on their own merits.

          The problem is here that David Cameron, apparently to ingratiate himself with a section of society, wants to pass this legislation which many believers (I am not one but I respect their right to believe) find distasteful. In doing so he is legislating for the church which is quite wrong. Even to prohibit the church from doing something it does not want to do anyway, sets up the opportunity for someone to challenge that under the arse wrecking (forgive me if I sound carried away) law of the EU which no absolutely one in the country has voted for.

          All this time, the same EU is wasting our money and failing for decade after decade to account properly for its expenditure.

          I don’t blame a soul here who fulminates about this obscene distortion of priorities when the government should be acting in the immediate and vital interests of the UK. If its citizens want to pass legislation to make homosexuality mandatory in all schools from the age of 16, then that is what they can vote for. At such time I would change my nationality, having already emigrated.

          Sometimes the interests of the greater population can only be brought to the attention of the mentally fogbound politically elite by colourful language which highlights these gross discretions. I happily admit to doing this myself. But although done from a position of anger, it is considered in the sense that if it attracts people’s attention and even results in change then it may be considered justified. Call it passive terrorism if you will.

          Probably some on the loony left (sic) who are trying to stir things up.

          Unless it is some common purpose parasite: That is part of what they are about.

          Looking at the poll results, the gay marriage item is a damp squib, and all parties would probably prefer not to have to deal with it right now.

          But, on the bright side, as they are tied up with that, and on the serious sensitive issue which they are struggling to keep a facade of credibility on, they cannot deal with the bigger problem: UKIP

          Folk do care more about the EU question, and are voting with their feet, party membership decisions, donations, support and in the future, their vote, and the LibLabCon now realize they are a collective busted flush.

          What is amusing. They will damage some of the UK constitution and also their own governance structure on an issue which affects ~ 2% of the population, yet they have so far lost to UKIP about 20% of the vote.

          In electioneering terms this is like Brown’onomics applied to elections. The first taste of this was in 2010.

          The gay marriage vote is fine, provided we exit the EU and the churches are not going to be forced to perform the ceremony against their wishes by the ECJ.

          If this passes, this is a more urgent reason to have that referendum sooner rather than later and get the Lisbon Article 50 machinery moving.

    A serious question: parliaments are now fixed-term. What happens if the Conservatives genuinely split, so that some MPs resign the whip and call themselves Independent Conservatives or some such? Dave and his so-called coalition partners will then have no chance of ever having a majority except by pure chance, a situation that Labour will exploit to the full.

    But what happens then? He can’t call a general election. Can he resign and call on the Queen to form a new government? Or does he have to drag his political corpse through the mud till 2015?

      This is controversial, but there was a rule change Dave put through shortly after he got into power which allows that.

      There is some provision under Section 2 of the Fixed-term Parliaments Acts 2011 for dissolving parliament before the end of a 5-year term.

      If the House of Commons resolves “That this House has no confidence in Her Majesty’s Government”, an early general election is held, unless the House of Commons resolves “That this House has confidence in Her Majesty’s Government”.

      This second resolution must be made within fourteen days of the first.
      If the House of Commons, with the support of two-thirds of its total membership (including vacant seats), resolves “That there shall be an early parliamentary general election”.

      In either of these two cases, the monarch (on the recommendation of the Prime Minister) appoints the date of the new election by proclamation. Parliament is then dissolved 17 working days before that date.
