      So it’s not a cabinet minister and it happened in number 10.

      Don’t the Osbornes live in the flat at number 10?

          How about a very close relative of the Prime Minister concealing an affair with a very contraversial public figure who the Prime Minister was at one time said to have been horsing around with? What if that relative had taken part in the Leveson inquiry? And if he/she is married? The family fall-out would be catastrophic.

          • Lady Virginia Droit de Seigneur says:

            It has to be either something that compromises government or party.

            In the it could be someone who is closely associated with one off iDave’s flagship policies (gay marriage, Leveson) having an affair with someone clearly associate with opposition to that policy. Someone from HackedOff for example

            In the former it could be someone in No 10 having an affair with a tribal Labour MP or someone with a bad public image associated with Labour (think Watson/Balls/Abbott for the former, Derek Draper/Sally Bercow/ Polly Toynbee for the latter)

            Generally I don’t care much what politicians do with their spare time (other than they have too much of it and I’m surprised that anyone has low enough standards to have sex with an MP) but if it affects and influences government then we are entitled to know.

      dogsled says:

      She is a very silly, untalented, little chav who has just discovered that her usefulness to the Cowell empire and therefore her 15 minutes have just expired. And with Cowells notorious Nigel Molesworth contracts (anything you earn in the future on the earth, moon, mars, pluto, the solar system, space; 2/3rds of it belongs to him. chiz.) she will is just about to realise her earning potential working for anyone else in showbusiness is virtually zero.
      Now those dreams of being the new Cheryl Cole (the nations sweetheart. copyright S.Cowell.) and a role model for all those girls in Kappa who hang around the bus stop texting Wayne, drinking WKD, while screaming at their fatherless brood, now lie in ruins. Soon all the designer shops will be banging on the door as she discovers that the new wardrobe that she thought Simon had bought for her, were actually loaned samples and Mr D&G wants them back.
      In a couple of years she will be back at that same bus stop, wondering who her new babys father is, what time does the bookies open & who gave her crabs?

      People with no talent should never believe that they will never be found out. That just because they appear on TV giving their opinion that it is automatically valid and important. In two years time no one will even remember her name. And on that subject, can you actually name a N-Dubz hit?

      Thought not.

        Come on Guido… I logged on here to find out who were the past lovers from No 10? I admit to being as nosy as the next person. Is it perhaps Dr Who himself, and that is why he is leaving? I’m wading through all this stuff and haven’t found out yet… all too cryptic. Nothing could be as joyous as John Major and his ladylove Edwina. It was deeply unimportant politically. You are not supposed to have affairs within ‘the office’ environment, I know, but that is where people meet, innit? If it were to be two gay people who voted against gay marriage it WOULD matter because of the hypocricy. If it were to be across the political divide it would be… interesting… but again unless some kind of corruption were to be involved… unlikely… it would not matter either. Cash for questions DOES matter IMNSHO. This kind of thing merely cheers up the nation, but sadly hurts the official partners of those invoved.

          Every time I hear someone say “LibLabCon” I’m less inclined to vote Ukip in the European elections. Lumping the Lib Dems and Tories in with Labour as if to suggest Labour are no worse than anyone else is a deliberate misrepresentation.

          Under our political system, if you hate waste the only sensible thing to do is vote for whichever party is best placed to beat Labour. At the moment that isn’t Ukip, nor is it likely to be anytime soon.

          • What a gross calumny you commit, Sir Madam!

            The word ars in Latin is something much more noble than your slur implies. I went to Skol in the days wot they tort such stuff.

            The Romans had many words and names ending with that combination, as indeed did the Etruscans, although their tongue was a language isolate.

            May I refer you to Lord Macaulay and his Lays of Ancient Rome for an example:

            Lars Porsena of Clusium, by the Nine Gods he swore
            That the great house of Tarquin should suffer wrong no more.
            By the Nine Gods he swore it, and named a trysting day,
            And bade his messengers ride forth,
            East and West and South and North,
            To summon his array.

      Yeah, good point. What are these “legal reasons”? They can only be

          Its quite clever, if there is no super injunction, to imply there could be one.

          The courts which issue these stupid orders would have no credibility if they now issued a denial that such an injunction existed.

          • Dave should resign now says:

            Isn’t the point of a super injunction that they cannot be publicly confirmed or denied through media outlet.

            In theory the only way you can find out about them is to be served with notice.

            Gets complicated in Parliament though, where a famous one involving something to do with Brune! a few years back highlighted the stupidity of the things.

        wesmith104 says:

        A super-injunction is a nifty little court order that public figures can get to prohibit the British press from reporting something embarrassing about them that’s not deemed to be essential information for public consumption. The first rule about super injunctions is that you can’t talk about super injunctions. (There are also normal injunctions that allow a public figure to be kept anonymous, but do not suppress reporting on the events entirely.)

        Since the press can’t report on whether a super injunction actually exists, the coverage of the scandal and the need to tiptoe around the allegations and who stands accused makes for some rather awkwardly-written articles in the UK press.

        Polycythaemia Vera (PV) is a rare myeloproliferative disease that mainly affects people over the age of 40. Typically PV develops very slowly, caused by changes in the bone marrow. These changes cause too many red blood cells to be made. This raises the haemoglobin (Hb) level and makes the blood thicker than normal. Some people with PV also have increased numbers of white blood cells and platelets in their blood. Being a PV man does not normally shorten life expectency among adulterers.

          Some of the stories which led to that decision, not the celeb rubbish but the government leaks, were believed to be sourced from phone hacking.

          Checking over certain testimony given in that inquiry may well show that some on the stand perjured themselves more than was realized.

          It was independently set up by Leveson, after Labour called for it to be and Cameron agreed.

          The whole situation is a mess.

          The shagging aspect is salacious. That their relationship was that close, and one influenced the employment of the other by Cameron suggests that this Prime Minister is easily manipulated.

        In preparing for a Labour / UKIP coalition, one suspects that the current lot will use any excuse to set up more restrictive laws / regulations on Parliament in order to make it easier to dislodge the next government.

        Look to where Labour draw the lines on any such new rules / laws to see where their next scandals will emerge, or indeed may well be hidden at present.

        Clegg has nothing to lose in getting the ball rolling.

      This is student union politics. Pass a law, wave a wand.

      None of these people has a clue about actually doing anything sensible, like enforcing the existing laws and picking better people to run on their parties’ tickets.

    Dave and the lawyers (allegedly) says:

    I guess Dave has taken out a super duper super injunction where no mention of the injunction banning the mention of the injunction that bans the mention of the injunction banning the mention of the affair or participants.

    Injunction were originally invented to protect children so Dave’s injunctions could be doing just that. If it were national security he could have used a D notice.

      So Parliament consorts with illicit fornicators
      And we’re supposed to be astounded, us pleb spectators

    I see Balls is promising to end Winter Fuel Payments to ‘rich’ pensioners. Completely pointless action that will save very little and could cost quite a bit to administer.

    wesmith104 says:

    A super-injunction is a nifty little court order that public figures can get to prohibit the British press from reporting something embarrassing about them that’s not deemed to be essential information for public consumption. The first rule about super injunctions is that you can’t talk about super injunctions. (There are also normal injunctions that allow a public figure to be kept anonymous, but do not suppress reporting on the events entirely.)

    Since the press can’t report on whether a super injunction actually exists, the coverage of the scandal and the need to tiptoe around the allegations and who stands accused makes for some rather awkwardly-written articles in the UK press.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
