Loyal Coulson Speaks
Dave on Boris: “He’ll want my job next”

Andy Coulson has surfaced for the first time since his Downing Street walk out in 2011 to dispense some pearls of wisdom for those he left behind. Writing for July’s GQ, he gives “his ten-point masterplan for saving David Cameron and stopping Labour in 2015″. And he sticks it to Boris too. Guido is sure the advice will be welcomed with open arms…

Despite awaiting his September trial, Coulson has clearly been keeping one eye on the ball:

“The prime minister must push [Miliband] to take positions: expose his strategy (to keep his head down, silently hope that the economy continues to go wonky and, well, just be the other guy), challenge him to take a view on the tricky issues opposition politicians love to duck….I’m struck by how detached the opposition front bench appears to be from their leader…I just don’t think they rate him very much. And if they don’t there’s a good chance the public will feel the same way once they get to know him properly.”

He’s even got even stronger words for Balls:

“The prime minister should pray Ed Balls remains shadow chancellor until the election…Appointing him as George’s opposite number was the Miliband gift that will keep on giving… The Tories must look for the divisions and make the most of them a) because they are most certainly real – always a plus – and b) because it’s history repeating itself. We are in this hole at least in part because of the shamefully dysfunctional Blair/Brown relationship. Labour’s Two Eds dislike each other and each thinks he is smarter than the other. The Conservatives should imagine in some detail how it would work if they actually won…and share that vision with the British public.”

Other than what might come out at the Brooks and Coulson trial, the Tories other favourite topic of parlour conversation is Boris, and Coulson does not disappoint there either. The Mayor’s card is marked, it seems. Coulson reckons Boris wants the job but won’t tarnish the brand by moving against the PM.

“Number Ten’s Boris strategy should be simple.  Support his good ideas, advise privately on the bad ones, but only engage publicly if absolutely necessary – and celebrate Boris’ considerable successes. Boris Johnson desperately wants to be prime minister and David has known that fact longer than most.  When Boris asked me to pass on the message that he was keen to stand as mayor of London, David responded, “Well, if he wins, he’ll want my job next.”  If proof were needed that our PM is a man untroubled by self doubt, it came in his next sentence, “So I think he’ll be a bloody brilliant candidate for us”… Stabbing David, or anyone else for that matter, in the back would be distinctly off brand – just not very Boris.  He would much prefer to see David fail miserably in the election and ride in on his bike to save party and country.”

A little revenge, perhaps, for Boris saying at the height of the phone-hacking scandal that he had warned Dave and George off hiring the former Screws editor. You have to wonder what might be in that diary…

    US Watch says:

    The liberal left, which represent the politics of a large section of the media in US, have been pulling every stunt under the Sun to try and justify / coerce and nail into place the politically correct dogma that seems to have infected everywhere else.

    Stirring up racial tension and distorting situations such as the Zimmerman case are towards the top of the iceberg.

    Diversity trash is being pushed into the higher education system and places of employment. Controversial as many academics have rightly pointed out that such notions are by definition racist, contrary to the reasons they are being introduced.

    Several commentators have noted that several shows, some produced for the American market by the BBC, appear to have be designed to inflame racial tensions and promote division.

    The publishing of the addresses of gun owners by an MSM outlet in New York area earlier this year is another example of the dangerous and loony left at work in the US.

    Most people are not buying this though and are already awake to what is going on. Only a few more years until Obama is got rid of, unless he can be impeached first.

    When Davey sinks – all of his mouthpiece 5hits in the press will have to go down with him … And the Eddys will be washed out to sea in the undercurrent too.

    What a bunch of asshole so called leading LIBLABCON politico’s we have right now and guys like Coolman trying to capitalise on their failings.
    What this country now needs and is getting is a party who says it like it is without fear or favour and I for one believe that UKIP are the only party in recent times who have the main stream parties wetting their pants as to how they might counteract this threat to their cosy exsistence.
    I and I suspect many others have had enough of these three spin parties and we have now seen through you and I for one will be voting UKIP and I urge others to do the same if you want your country back under our control.

    iii) Buying a plane is a good asset to purchase if you have the money to spend. As others have pointed out, good to have your own air transportation in the event that the manure pile of enrichment we have in the UK these days catches fire. Cheaper to buy than a house. More convenient for most than a boat.

    You are not far off the truth at all BW. Kudos.

    Now that business is getting behind UKIP, business including the City, and the major party donors, the curtain which conceals the reality of what most of the members of the house are is being pulled back.

    And what an awful reality it was hiding.

    Without the $, politics is just a lot of ideas, deceit and lies.

    With the $ it is just the same but can be made to shine and look good.

    Without the $ the rotten truth is laid bare.

    Midas is now touching UKIP, and as its grip tightens this beacon shall outshine all.

    Business has realized that UKIP offer the best choice if the EU fails, as seems more likely now. UKIP are prepared to take the UK out if the people ask for this at referendum.

    Business has also realized that Westminster style party politics is not a good strategy for representing its interests in the EU Parliament.

    Many have said that the EU Parliament and system is undemocratic. This is true in part.

    It is anti-democratic for those who are smart.

    To get clout a member state needs a robust representation, which can lobby other member states as one and command enough votes to have a chance at swinging a decision. Single party representation is best.

    LibLabCon in EU essentially splits the UK vote in the chamber. Not smart.

    UKIP, offering the get out clause and with a good chance of winning UK majority in the European elections next year is the most logical choice to back. And for the people of the UK to vote for.

    In or Out, LibLabCon are finished for the time being, and only two, maybe even one (Labour) will still be around by 2020.

    Whoever it is would be advised to handle the disciplinary professionally maybe through Union, and just agree to abide by terms of employment contract with regards dress code: If they care about this position.

    If the person doesn’t care, just wait it out. Best to start looking for a new job now, there will be others out there.

    If the employer sees this image on line, as it is marked private / confidential this could constitute automatic dismissal on grounds of gross misconduct.

    The employer in this case is a good English brand, it is a shame they have taken this issue this far.

    It really is not worth doing a disciplinary hearing over a poppy badge and bracelet.

    Tell It To Yo' Mama, Obama, says:

    Somebody please explain how the Internal Revenue Service, which is tasked with collecting taxes, and as of next year, with ascertaining that everyone will either be covered by health care insurance or obliged to pay a mulct to the Federal Government in lieu thereof, thought it was doing Obama a favour (definitely not acting at his behest– oh, dearie me, no) by, as the Yanks say, “bustin’ chops” with the delay in approval of tax-exempt status of “Tea-Party/Patriot” political organisations (which grant of such status is routine for such organisations of a more Leftie bent– whether those groups SHOULD be tax-exempt is another discussion)– and that the office tasked to do this was the one in the constituency represented by the Republican Leader, then in Opposition? In other words, you’re proposing using the tax police as the enforcement arm of your crowning achievement policy whilst using them as imperious nit-pickers against those who fought passage of that bill, in those people’s own backyard, whilst you’re trying the Hodge dodge with “Why aren’t the big corporations/’the 1%’ being forced to pay their ‘fair share’?” at the same time you’re shaking them down for campaign donations. But no, Barry the barrow boy, you don’t know jack about that sort of “rogue” operation. Same as you don’t know jack about Benghazi. Same as you don’t know jack about what Eric Holder, head of the “Justice” Dept., is doing to harass Fox News correspondent James Rosen (well, Eric’s never liked Fox– they report on his derelictions of duty) and CBS News Sharyl Attkisson (CBS has been known to stray off the reservation– it’s that Edward R. Murrow legacy) about “possible security breaches in how they obtained information in their reports.”

    One gets the feeling that, if all this were true, Obama is the Kevin Pollak character in Casino– you know, the one who was chosen as the public face because he didn’t know much and didn’t want to know much– and that’s the most flattering way he can be described in all this. And Dave goes over there to consult with this self-confessed ignoramus, if Obama can be taken at face value. It’s the lame leading the halt.

    Hilary initially got it in the neck for Benghazi, but as Commander in Chief Obama bears responsibility, and it would seem was a lot more involved than previously thought, or admitted.

    Using the IRS to target Conservative groups has also irritated many. This kind of dirty politic sometimes happens at the state / city levels, but for it to be organized at the Federal level with a major agency is not only without precedent but also a serious line crossed.

    These are the most serious issues right now.

    The developments in Syr!a could prove to be a final nail in waiting. Russia looks like it is putting support back behind Assad, and this is shaping up almost for a direct confrontation with the US. With troop draw downs, pivot towards Asia, and real terms defense cuts likely to go through, Russia have timed this perfectly at a point where the US is weak in the region.

    And that is after Obama was trumped by Ch!na in DPRK peace negotiations.

    Another serious domestic screw up, like the IRS issue, could be enough for the people to demand an impeachment.

    There is a quote from Ben Franklin which you should read and reflect on for a day or so:

    ‘They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.’

    Now, whilst I do care about the safety of yourself and your family as an empathic type, I care about my individual liberty more.

    Those who would put at risk the liberty of others by calling for such dangerous legislation to be passed would face three risks rather than none:

    i) The original risk, which would remain. This would not stop militant muzzies or anyone else attacking what you hold dear if they so choose to do so.

    ii) The government. They may find something of yours, or your children’s which is badly phrased, leading to a terror alert. There is even the possibility your details may be used to frame you for something. This happens at present.

    iii) People who are somewhat sworn to defend and restore liberty at any / all personal cost for the greater good of all. You would be an enemy of liberty.

    Two Risks have been gained. One is quite serious: the government. The other is less but cannot be ignored.

    The argument that ‘I have nothing to hide so my privacy is irrelevant’ is false. If you are comfortable with the scheme then simply CC your local police station with every email you send, forward through a copy of all your phone calls (taped), and send them a snapshot of your internet cache(s) on at least a daily basis.

    In fact: If you are that comfortable with having nothing to hide then you may as well start posting those details on this blog. The readers can then confirm that you are not involved in anything which could harm either ourselves or our families and we may sleep easier for that.

    I do not mean to be harsh or rude, but am trying to make a point. It is difficult to see this point if your perception of reality has been distorted.

    In the case of Woolwich, the security services knew the perpetrators and were monitoring them already. They would have been covering those that these guys associated with as well, and probably the families, pets and guys who deliver their milk.

    With all that the soldier was still killed.

    Extending monitoring to cover everyone only has negative consequences for the majority. It will do nothing other than perhaps hinder further the ability of those who claim to be keeping us safe on actually doing what they are paid to do.

    Note that since the Edinburgh incident, Nigel has had to now employ security and no longer travels to meet the people on his own, as he did previously. He is no longer a stranger.

    It certainly is interesting to see what happens when there is true disorder, when you know what your looking at.

    That’s the excuse Labour gave when they introduced the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act. They said it was only going to be used to investigate Terrorism and serious crime. Once it was brought in, the government then allowed local councils to use it to check if you lived in the right areas to send your kids to one of the few good state schools, keeps tabs on you walking your dog to make sure it wasn’t shitting on the footpath, make sure you were putting your rubbish in the right coloured bin, etc. In fact local councils used the RIPA Act a damned site more often than the security services.

    If they bring in the snoopers charter it won’t be long before they intercept the communications of anyone criticising government, both local and national, and dealing with them accordingly. Don’t believe for one minute our politicians are thinking of the public’s security. Politicians lie and they’ll make sure they themselves are exempt from the Act.

    The BBC on Coulson is devious as ever:

    The headline “Boris wants PM to fail” is not what he said at all. It is actually the opposite of what Coulson said of Boris: that it was not his style to stab someone in the back, and that he would rather Cameron fail than assassinate him. Not the same thing at all, but the BBC would not understand the difference.

    Before the Conservatives gloat too much on the thought that Balls may still be there and available as the bad face of the NuLab spending splurge, they should recall they endorsed it.

    The official opposition under Cameron not oppose the NuLab spending and borrowing and made half-hearted attempts to oppose only some of the regulatory expansion. More significantly Osborne promoted the policy of sharing the proceeds of future growth in the economy between the private sector (you, me and our employers) and the public sector (which had expanded fast). In other words, Osborne wanted to maintain the public sector at fully half our national output.

    Vote Tory, get heir to Blair says:

    “Following the very peculiar ComRes poll for Open Europe there is a more normal one out tonight – their monthly telephone poll for the Independent. Topline voting intention figures with changes from last month are CON 30%(-2), LAB 34%(-4), LDEM 10%(+1), UKIP 17%(+4).”

    At the last General election the Tories got 36%, Labour 29%, Lib Dems 23% and UKIP 3%.

    Although the Tories have lost 6%, UKIP have gained 14% so where has the other 8% come from?

    I suppose this Mr Coulson is one of the 57,000 people on police bail walking the streets.

    I suspect everytime I go out I pass loads of criminals in the street . What they have been up to is anyone’s guess.

    I thought Mr Cameron was in favour of law and order. 57,000 outstanding bail applications means 57,000 unsolved crimes sitting on policemen’s desks and they are banned from working overtime to deal with the backlog.

    Even if a third of these people are convicted that is another 19,000 to lock up .

    With this lot in charge they will probably put them up in Travel Lodge and send us the bills.

    Where all these flocking criminals come from,I have no idea.

    Old Blind Pugh says:

    A clip from the Guardian, the paper Geedo loves to hate, “A new poll claimed most voters think the Tories are more divided now than under John Major in the 1990s. Asked whether Cameron is presiding over a more divided party than his Tory predecessor, 56% agreed and 23% disagreed, according to a poll by ComRes for The Independent. Just 29% of those questioned thought Cameron has the leadership qualities to win outright in 2015.” The line that gets me is ” the Tories are more divided now than under John Major in the 1990s” all I can say is who would have believed it, if the comments on this blog are anything to go by the party seems ready split in two, Dave should have been more decisive and not surrounded himself with Eton/public school “they are one of us” people. Dave started of well he had a mountain to move to get public acceptability but he had been pushing at an open door as regards Brown, Dave has to remember he is the one in the driving seat and he has to keep his back seat drivers under control, the longer he leaves it the harder it will be for him in the long run.

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
