Smacked Bottom For Press Gazette

Press Gazette’s scoop on Friday that Guardian hack Nick Davies is off to America will remain exclusive. They reported that the paper’s “US invasion gathers pace” as “Nick Davies joins Paul Lewis Stateside” in a now pulled piece.

No need to get the PCC involved this time, but still. Ouch.

      But the Labour Party are allowed to abuse the law and silence our peaceful, law-abiding critics. If they ever get back into office we will do it again.

    From Yvoire I plan to travel onto Thonon-les-Bains later this afternoon. I hear from one of the townsfolk here that Restaurant Le Prieuré maybe willing to part with a few bottles of Petrus Pomerol 1998. It’s certainly worth seeking out as Le Prieuré serves Confit de Canard, a particular favorite of mine and far superior to the standard fare the natives eat.

Lets face it. if a big lardy arsed, has been like me, with a track record of incompetence, theft, extra marital activities, greed, fuckwittery and general all round uselessness is able to credibly have a pop at little Ed…Well? … How flipping” diabolical does that make Tit Ed ?

    Eh? ..I mean come on..I’m the gold standard for political opportunism and the promotion of incompetent assholes to get them away from doing real damage. And yet even I can see little Ned is less effective than an electric can opener in the desert. Without a can …or summint like that…IM no good ith me worms as you all know…
