Leveson Lover’s Large Bill Blows Brian’s Bluster

When the Leveson lovers story broke, Brian responded by telling Tory MP Rob Wilson that “Ms Patry Hoskins assisted in the largely mechanical exercise of collecting and organising the evidence”. Adding that  “absolutely no role” in work on the section of the report addressing the culture, practices and ethics of the press. Well today we learn she was paid £218,606 for this apparently limited role. It does not add up…

      I’d give Owen a limited role on my cock.

      Plumber blames backed up washing machine filter on Owens sheets.

      How can they even agree to pay someone £200k for a few months work?? No-one on the public pay checque should be paid more than the PM. End of story.

        I wish I could find mechanical roles like that!

          PC Dixon says:

          Words fail to describe the disgusting behaviour of these two. Not the sex which is obvious and up to them but the double standards, lies and dishonesty of the bloody lawyers who pocket such huge amounts in the process. Whole circus was to benefit the greedy lawyers and hypocritical lefties/libdems.

        Trust me, £200K is peanuts.

        Peter Martin says:

        £200k still rather adds up to a lot round here.

        My missus and I have been asking the kids to do a bit of collecting and organising in their rooms, and were thinking more in terms of a trip to KFC as compo.

    Nikki Campell the queen of breakfast radio was rather coy this morning when challenged to tell us how much he earned.

    “It’s private” came the reply. Why? He’s a public sector worker paid by a compulsory tax. Nothing to hide surely?

    Anyway for anyone interested he’s on around 500,000 a year. Great value I think for such talent.

      So Brian has been telling MP’s porkies. I want to make sure that fact is in the public domain.

      Lord Stansted says:

      With those morals, Campell should be in Parliament.

      Licence fee is not compulsory, you only need to pay it if you have a TV / Watch live to air TV broadcasts.

      Don’t pay it, read a book instead, or watch TV programmes via the internet

        Yeah, right... says:

        Can someone please refute this?

        500k per annum puts him in the same league as seriously quality broadcasters like Andy Gray.

    Once you accept that Quangos, Enquiries etc are little more than money laundering machines to get our money into the hands of the chosen few it becomes quite obvious what is going on.

    At £150 an hour neither party could afford to sustain the affair and so withdrew before exchange of fluids.

    A Saucy Gander says:

    So, Mr Cameron is a man to whose statements the yardstick of ‘the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth’ does not apply.

    Its a good job he doesn’t normally work as a judge, as a judge is someone from whom we’d have to be able to expect the ‘utmost good faith’ and the very highest standards of probity.

    Oddly enough the press outrage over an affair between two of the leading players at Leveson seems to have died down a little lately.

    Guido, could you give us a well-defined enlargement please?

    (I meant the newspaper mock-up. It comes out all fuzzy when I try to blow it up, so I can’t tell what the rules of the game are.)

    Tsk, tsk, has Levenson said a porkie..?

    An investigation must be started and those guilty brought to book……

    Scandalous waste of public money.

    Thank God. Ms Hoskins had such a “limited role”. Whio knows what she would have charged had she been involved in some work!

    So Leveson lied, or was economical with the truth as they say down his way. Perhaps there should be a Judicial enquiry–lots of Judes will be glad to get the fees.

    Good to see that anti semitism is alive and well.Or was it a typo. Judes…Judges…Juden.
