The Invitation Westminster Advisers Won’t Comment About

As reported last night, the Guardian have added some important details to their Lynton Crosby/healthcare yarn, after Guido’s little fact checking yesterday. Lobbying firm Westminster Advisers “declined to comment” last night over Guido’s revelation that the firm “run by the Labour supporter and former councillor Dominic Church, organised a cross-party meeting at the end of 2010 which was shown the Crosby Textor research.” They told the Guardian: “I’m not going to go into that. I have given you the statement we are giving out. That is all we are saying.” For the sake of clarity, here is the invitation to their event:

“That is all we are saying.”

    Aha, so Labour cronies were setting up this claret and canapés lobby meeting for a private healthcare lobby?

    Funny how Nicolas Watts and The Guardian skipped this vital information. Have they published a full apology yet? Or are they still hiding behind “legal” reasons for their incompetent and biased reporting?

      It is all part of their masterplan in conjunction with their masters, ZaNuLieBor, and with the eager co-operation of the fellow-travelling British Bullshit Corporation, aka Al JaBeeBa.

      It worked too; the mass market 70-80% of news market which is reached by Al JaBeeBa will never see a retraction and will post the ‘irrefutable proof’ of the initial lie at every opportunity.

      The dumb clucks who vote for them will believe it too, as always.

    Oh come on, totally synthetic anger.

    But let me first of all, let me say I do not condone any slanted journalism from The Guardian (even though it pales into insignificance with the briefing of 13,300 avoidable deaths in the NHS and the gleeful take-up by The Fail and other red-tops).

    However, it was not just ‘research’ that CTF entered into. The website of C/T Group states “The C|T Group offer an unmatched pedigree combining comprehensive experience in market research, strategic communications and campaign execution.”

    Whether the interface with MP’s came via Westminster Advisors, or not, is a valid but very minor detail.

    Does Lynton Crosby still have private health care amongst his clients?
