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.”

    Andrew Efiong says:

    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?

    And now from the BBC and the Grauniad … the Royal Baby and corrupt Tories.

    ßilly, a poo-shiner says:

    I think I outgrown my blog, hasn’t I, Gudoi? Can I come on you’re – more professional – effort, where people, actually, write comments? Thanks.

    “i’ll defend the right for you to say it, whether it offends me or not.”

    Peter Grimes says:

    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.

    Daily Fail says:

    You should read the shite in our paper. e.g. “Why the Middletons (and NOT the Windsors) will make Wills a great father”

    Yup. You don’t need to read The Femail to know what’s in it, and that’s why I don’t.

    Look, what’s a little factual omission between fellow travellers ? We’ve got a totemic sacred cow to protect from the evil baby eating Tories here.

    Why dothent everwybody thee that thith ith all ve fault of ve evil, FATCHERITE, evil, baby eating, money making… erm.. thorry, money thquanderwing, hwwible EVIL TORIES. Bathdardth.

    Ve people of Gweat Bwitain need uth NOW! Ve will be THO good for ve economy, full employment, rithing taxes… erm… thorry rising FTSE and fithcal probity and thtability.

    Don’t judge uth on what we did in the 1960’s, 1970’s, ve late 1990’s and the naughtieth when we were actually able to put thith rambling and dangerwous nonethenth into pwactith.

    That ith jutht tho unfair if you do. Don’t judge us on what we do, judge uth on our thoothing wordth telling you what you want to hear!

    Vote Labour.

    Or UKIP – itth all a vote for me! AND one leth for ve EVIL, baby eating, EVIL, corrupt, (etc.. etc…)

    If you walked into Halfords, Owen Jones would be the reason you stuck with your failed windscreen wipers.

    Magic 8 Ball says:

    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?

  25. 25
    Man from the street says:

    Well 1,863,151 people do read the shite in your paper, which cant be said for the Guardian.

  26. 26
    Lynton Crosby says:

    PM warns that that Owen Jones is ” holding back sometimes British businesses and the British economy.”

    His tweets are making Britain a laughing stock (See 4 above)

  27. 27
    Man from the street says:

    See when someone writes a couple of lines like that its fine but a full blown paragraph is just hard work to read.

    Gypsy Rose Lee says:

    Like Labour,Magic 8 balls are useless when it comes to recalling the past.

    We have a small and exclusively stupid readership which believes everything Pollytwaddle says.

    Cornish Pilchard says:

    Interesting quote in the House (on a different issue) from the sponsor Brian Brinley MP

    “It is generally accepted that there were some serious management breakdowns. …………… In my business, I would want to know what was happening. Does the right hon. Gentleman accept that he should have known what was happening?”

  34. 34
    Puzzled & Confused says:

    I am being slow on the uptake. The event was sponsored by Brian Binley – a Conservative MP. Who coincidentally chose to announce his retirement from politics …. yesterday: see http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-northamptonshire-23403102

    Andrew Efiong says:

    I enjoy the nature documentaries. But the news is rubbish. And don’t get me started on business reporting, useless!

    Something for A’Gurnaid to point out!

    Peter Grimes says:

    Business Editor – leftist stooge Peston.
    Economics Editor – Steph the leftist Cyclist

    What else would you expect.

  38. 38
    Peter Grimes says:

    Or even telling it like it is. It wasn’t ‘slanted journalism’, fuckwit, it was pure lies and propaganda. Just compare, if you are able, the Guardian’s initial output with the facts.

    How are this year’s tractor production statistics coming along?

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
