Coulson’s Mobile Phone Conversation Intercepted

ac-grays-inn

A co-conspirator emailed on Friday:

Yesterday, I found myself walking up the Gray’s Inn Road alongside Andy Coulson. He was talking on his mobile phone to someone about the fact that his trial date had been moved. It was raining and he was mumbling a lot. But I did catch this brilliant quote:

“Whatever you do, don’t share that with anyone. Be very careful.”

I couldn’t resist papping him as he ambled along the road.

A funny thing to hear from the man who stands accused of conspiracy to intercept mobile phone voicemails, among other things. Be more careful Andy…

    So the Syrians have agreed to let the UN weapons inspectors into the area of the ‘alleged’ chemical weapons attack. Remember how Obum boy and Cuuntermon were demanding this?

    Well know the Syrians have agreed the Tory cuunts and Obum bandit are now saying that it’s too late.

    This is being reported by Sky and the BBC without question, even though weapons experts THEY themselves have interviewed have stated evidence can last for years.

    The frog cuunts also stating that there is a pile of evidence against Assad. So where is it then? and where is the media checking these claims out?

    You’d think that there would be hundreds of western hacks heading to Syria to investigate and loads of rebel groups willing to show them.

    Yet there’s nothing, not a dicky bird.

    Cuuntermon, you should stick to finding out who *illy Hague was shagging in his hotel room and leave the world in peace.

    you really are fucked for 2015.

    Our EU membership fee: 20 billion reasons to vote UKIP says:

    “Why didn’t the Assad allow the inspectors in straight away?”

    I was wondering that, and I came up with the reasonable answer: it’s a warzone. Maybe Assad wasn’t too keen on a bunch of UN weapons inspectors getting shot by rebels who could be dressed as regular Syrian troops.

    So, maybe Assad was/is just trying to ensure the area’s safe.

    What I want to know, though, is what sort of chemical it was, because reports say 3,500 injured arrived at hospital. Injured? They should be dead. Pretty crappy nerve agents if you ask me. Sounds like someone got cheap ones off the Internet from China.

    I cannot think of any clearer example of why the UK cannot claim to be a democratic country when such unwanted legislation is thrust upon us and the effect of which is not to promote the intended cause but rather to employ deadbeats who can then lord it over more hard working and talented people whilst simultaneously and unnecessarily raising their cost of living..

    So Hague says it is too late to detect if Sarin was used.

    NOT SO mr Hague

    “A urine or blood test can determine definitively if someone has been exposed. Hair can sometimes be used, if it has absorbed the agent.”

    https://s3.amazonaws.com/PHR_other/PHR_Sarin_Fact_Sheet_04-13.pdf

    This Blog will not allow more than 1 link/post but widely available using a Google search are the pictures of the Sarin victims in the Tokyo underground as are the photos of the Syrian Children. Unless the children have been cleaned up (vomit uncontrolled defecation)and their limbs repositioned (asphyxia) after “death” then the comparisons are not credible.

    Hague is following American Spin and Pre-arranged Plans. says:

    “If the Syrian government had nothing to hide and wanted to prove to the world that it had not used chemical weapons in this incident, it would have ceased its attacks on the area and granted immediate access to the UN–five days ago. At this juncture, the belated decision by the regime to grant access to the UN team is too late to be credible,” the official said.

    ———–
    If there is no UN authorization, the United States would lead any possible strike, but, a senior official told ABC News “we do not want to do anything on our own.” U.S. allies must commit both “resources” and “political will” the official said.

    The US played this game in !raq. Sadam complied with all demands, but could not come out and openly say: I have no means of defending myself. That would have been suicide domestically and with those on his border.

    If Russ!a and !ran are continuing support of Assad then things cannot be that bad in Syr!a: It was back in January we had the false propaganda that Assad was facing imminent defeat.

    With Obama in office the US has zero legitimacy.

    Government To Appoint Bullshit Tsar

    THE government is to appoint a powerful new ‘czar’ to regulate the bullshit professions, including homeopathy, acupuncture and estate agency.
    The department for enterprise said the regulator’s remit will also cover public relations, marketing, advertising, finance and a wide range of diet-related bullshit.

    Tom Logan, labour market analyst at Donnelly-McPartlin, said: “At the moment anyone can join a bullshit profession or set themselves up as a bullshitter.

    “They simply rent an office, buy a bad suit and point at houses. Or they get a white coat and a chart of the human body, and then stick pins in your tongue, or claim they can cure cancer with some cheese, a teabag and a cucumber.”

    An enterprise department spokesman said: “While every profession is tainted with bullshit, we want to start by regulating those sectors that are founded on a solid core of pure bullshit.

    “The bullshit tsar’s first task will be to commission a firm of bullshitters to design a large building shaped like an upturned pram and then fill it with chancers who will spend the first year devising a series of slogans about bullshit.”

    He added: “Once we have picked a really good slogan the czar and his team will then draw up a series of bullshit qualifications that will mean absolutely fuck all.”

    It used to be a common theme when this blog started that Guido was a thwarted politician. After the expenses scandal people realised being an MP, under constant scrutiny and paid less than Neo-Guido, is a shit life. Journalists are being made redundant left, right and centre when not being arrested. Why would Guido want to be an underpaid employee? Being a blogger is a bit like being a journalist only better paid and with more job security. Don’t forget Guido owns the blog and all the advertising revenue. Don’t get Guido wrong, we love having the most read political column in the most read newspaper as well as the most read political blog. It is not just the money, the girls and the influence. It is the sheer freedom to be able to say “fuck you” to anyone we like from the PM down and they know it.

    JEREMY Paxman is to present Newsnight dressed as a black man as he seeks an above inflation pay rise from the BBC.

    Paxman believes he can increase his £1 million a year salary by applying shoe polish to his face and interviewing politicians while impersonating the late Al Jolson.

    He told an audience at the Edinburgh Television Festival: “Most news readers these days are black women.

    “Trevor McDonald, George whatshisface, the guy that does News 24 on Sunday afternoons and, of course, Hugh Edwards.

    “Alright Hugh Edwards isn’t a black woman, but he is Welsh which is basically the same thing.”

    Media analyst Tom Logan said: “Jeremy Paxman has raised an important issue: Why the fuck is anyone still listening to this arsehole?

    “People seem to think he’s deep and intelligent because he asked Michael Howard if he threatened to overrule the head of the prison service 600 times in a row. I still reckon he was pissed.”

    Logan added: “If he’s not defiling University Challenge he’s writing to Marks and Sparks about his testicles like some kind of pervert freak.

    “And another thing, who the fuck keeps asking Jeremy Paxman to write books? I want names.”

    BROKEN BRITISH POLITICS – MEDIA KNOW WHEN TO KEEP STUM
    Cameron,Blair,Murdoch,Rebekah Brooks and Andy Coulsen are all in or were in the same swim,it’s in very murky waters attached to number 10 & Media Presentation.The Media’s lack of any unbiased reporting on the Syrian issue speaks volumes.Is it because of the MOD’s D notice or still the manipulation by Government and the Press to feed the Public encouraging BS to support the Governments intentions whether they be right or wrong.Anything of value or interest to the Public is either suppressed or withheld.Blair survived on this for years having daily meeting with Brooks at 10 Downing Street each morning.Whilst we were fed BS about Blair & his Intended Policies.Blair did the ground work for his Tory allies to implement when in Power.His private chats with Unum,which now the DWP is a subsidiary could not have taken place within the time the Tories have held the helm.”Were all in it together” BSB.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
