WATCH: Mad Al v The Mail

Alastair Campbell lost it with Mail deputy editor John Steafel on Newsnight last night. If you still weren’t sure which side to back, Campbell accusing someone else of a lack of morals should decide it…

          Campbell had to leave Bliar’s side because he became the story

          The BBC decried McBride’s bully methods, but are quite happy to have Campbell in on a daily basis to bully and harangue political opponents in exactly the same fashion.

          Like Katie Price and Gillian McKeith, no one should take any notice of Alastair Campbell

          After forcing up the prices of energy as Environment Minister, I can punish everyone even more by price controls, investment collapse, greater dependency on Russia and lots of blackouts! Way to go!

          And if you pick on my family, just remember that I treated my brother like shit!

          What Miliband omits says:

          Miliband snr politics was to rip up Tories, LIb, SDP,Blair, working class views, perhaps even Kinnock political policies. His political associates appear to quickly only to engage to shout down anyone who says anything they haven’t decided they agree with. What common course did he have with his political opposition. Campbell hates. The accusation maybe is not hate ITS CLASS. Miliband snr appears never to have found common ground with the various section of society except with his “hard left” mates. He ingratiated himself with only one group and never moved on.

          Miliband snr was a left wing snob.

            Alistair Campbell – is a blithering idiot – he certainly lost it last night in a spectacular way – silly Newsnight interviewer was no better , she should calm down dear – Campbell biggest liar ever – involved and responsible for thousands of deaths in Iraq – don’t think his brain is attached to his mouth – he should go back to writing porn – so nice to see Newsnight going further and further LEFT !

            That same possible future PM stood on a public platform and said he would carry out his father’s vision for the country. It is more than fair for the country to be informed as to what that vision is.

          • green ink says:

            ….and what its based on and why anyone should think those outdated views espoused by his father to be tenable in a country that needs to thrive in a 21st century real world.

          He complained about personal attacks before launching a deeply
          personal attack on Dacre.

          Well Campbell certainly didn’t. He came across as being really nasty and venomous – all the things he was calling the DM and Dacre described his own behaviour. The DM guy remained cool, calm and collected throughout the barage of abuse from Campbell.

          They don’t like it up ‘em these lefties do they. I think they must have forgotten all the abuse the Thatcher family got at the time of her death….the left’s response was appalling. They even wore T shirts dancing on her grave.

          So people like the poisonous Campbell just reveal once again what duplicitous, uncouth liars these hardened lefties are.

      At one point she almost breaks into that clueless rich-twat Guardian reader style laughter she is so openly hostile to the Daily Mail and basically doing Campbell’s job for him. I loved her bringing up a DailyMail article from the 1930s – the twats on the Guardian always like that – and conveniently forget the Guardian article opposing the NHS because it would let genetically inferior people live and breed. Maitliss is one of the least impartial interviewers on the BBC and that’s saying something. When she leaves it will be to work for the Guardian or Labour Party.

    Works both ways says:

    Thatcher was a deranged old hag who tried on 5 occasions to get a knighthood for nonce Jimmy Savile, despite repeated warnings from her advisers about his personal life, eventually succeeding in 1990. It’s not a smear when it’s the truth. And that was reported in the Mail, so it has to be true.

      Alastair Campbell Murderer says:

      She tried, she failed. 30 years ago. But, more recently, Labour succeeded in giving a knighthood to Fred Goodwin.

      You know, Fred the Shred? The guy who trashed Royal Bank of Scotland?

      What did it cost us to sort out Fred’s mess? £180 billion or so, wasn’t it.

      And then Labour gave him a f*ck-off big pension and let him keep his ‘Sir’.

        Where are Tony Blair's expenses says:

        Have just finished reading Making it Happen, Fred Goodwin and the Men who blew up the British Economy. It’s a good read if a bit turgid at time; my thoughts from the book are
        •Fred Goodwin, Gordon Brown and Ed Balls did not understand the first law of economics i.e. There is no such thing as a free lunch
        •Fred Goodwin, Gordon Brown and Ed Balls did not understand how hedge funds, derivatives and the sub primed mortgage market worked.
        •Mervyn King was incompetent
        •The Management of the FSA were incompetent
        •Gordon Brown and Ed Balls really did think they had found a solution to boom and bust and the solution to financial alchemy
        •Unfortunately the banks were and still are too big to fail
        •The board of RBS, most of whom were still working until recently, were equally as culpable as Goodwin
        •The institutional investors in RBS deserved all they got.
        •Thousands of spivs made tens of millions of pounds based on fictitious profits none of which they have had to pay back – this is a real crime that the politicians will not address because of their own culpability.
        •The nation as a whole took on incredible levels of personal debt for which they will not take any personal responsibility but continue to want to blame it on the bankers and politicians.
        Finally the banking crisis has still not gone away and public spending is still out of control.

      True – why can’t his opponents point this out. I wonder if the BBC has said they will be banned if they do. Campbell was the key figure along with blair who on the basis of lies started a pointless war where hundreds of thousands, perhaps a million innocents were killed. If I was up against him on TV I would never tire of pointing this out, talking to him is like talking to a better-presented Pol Pot.

    The reason? He reportedly infuriated many of the home fans with his vociferous celebrations after Cardiff’s opening goal.

    Kinnock, a lifelong Cardiff fan, was understood to have ‘spoiled’ the enjoyment of the match for some Fulham supporters before he was moved away from the stand by security staff.

    A Fulham spokeswoman said: “Mr Kinnock was located in the home stand on Saturday and caused some angry responses when he and his family celebrated the Cardiff City goal.

    Lord Rothermere has the unique distinction of getting a fan letter from some guy called Hitler. Anyone heard of this Hitler chap?

    “Hurrah for the Black Shirts

    This headline appeared on the front page of the 8 July 1934 edition, and accompanied a piece on Sir Oswald Mosley’s British Union of Fascists that read, in part: “If the Blackshirts movement had any need of justification, the Red Hooligans who savagely and systematically tried to wreck Sir Oswald Mosley’s huge and magnificently successful meeting at Olympia last night would have supplied it.”

    On 15 January 1934, the BUF was described as “a well organised party of the right ready to take over responsibility for national affairs with the same directness of purpose and energy of method as Hitler and Mussolini have displayed”.

    On 10 July 1933, Rothermere continued: “I urge all British young men and women to study closely the progress of the Nazi regime in Germany. They must not be misled by the misrepresentations of its opponents. The most spiteful distracters of the Nazis are to be found in precisely the same sections of the British public and press as are most vehement in their praises of the Soviet regime in Russia. They have started a clamorous campaign of denunciation against what they call “Nazi atrocities” which, as anyone who visits Germany quickly discovers for himself, consists merely of a few isolated acts of violence such as are inevitable among a nation half as big again as ours, but which have been generalized, multiplied and exaggerated to give the impression that Nazi rule is a bloodthirsty tyranny.”

    On 7 December 1933, Hitler himself wrote to Rothermere: “I should like to express the appreciation of countless Germans, who regard me as their spokesman, for the wise and beneficial public support which you have given to a policy that we all hope will contribute to the enduring pacification of Europe. Just as we are fanatically determined to defend ourselves against attack, so do we reject the idea of taking the initiative in bringing about a war.

            No one is speaking about deporting European migrants who have already arrived. Your implication that European countries would start to discriminate ex-pat workers is without basis, however, if that is part of your justification for addressing the problem then that should be brought into the debate.

            Does the UK really wish to be held to ransom in this way ? Should it ?

            Any UK worker who decides to work abroad does so at their own risk, and decisions on immigration in the UK should not be held to ransom on that basis.

            If those workers do find themselves discriminated, then if they return this could be a benefit to the UK economy as they are likely highly skilled.

            Exiting the EU appears to be the only solution for repairing the immigration problem. After that the next problem is dealing with those who have already arrived and have not been properly integrated.

It might be worth noting that there have been considerable changes in attitudes amongst the military and the elite since Miliband’s juvenile father wrote in his diary, and if they wish to cleanse the system of all academic Marxists they will be closing down the universities at the same time and hence reducing everyone to their own mediocrity and incapacity to conduct any analysis, for even if they are far to dumb to comprehend it, serious social critique is impossible without using the tools Marx provided. Even Tory Central Office realises this.

    It tells you a great deal about Blair that with 45 million British adults to choose from he picked a one-time psychiatric in-patient whose behaviour was, according to Peter Oborne’s biography of Campbell, dangerously reckless and unbalnced.

    Oborne does not say what Campbell’s diagnosis was but his description of Campbell’s strongly suggests manic depression.

    If Cameron had an ounce of decency and courage, instead of just the mealy mouthed words he has used so far claiming he had not read the offending article he would use his conference speech today to roundly and unequivocally condemn the Daily Mail. This transcends party politics, it’s about common decency and fairness. A dead man, however much you may disagree with his political philosophy who serves this country, his country during war while the then owner of the Mail was sucking up to Herr Hitler, does not deserve this. The Mail’s editor should ponder this – where would his precious press freedom be now had Hitler and the Nazis won the war.
    Ed Miliband has, once again, shown his decency, strength and courage. I think the paper has shot itself in the foot

    This was a disgracefully conducted interview by Emily Maitlis who demonstrated all the things you shouldn’t do if you want to conduct an impartial and informative interview. Campbell, who was never interrupted, was allowed free rein to bully and abuse and he demonstrated why he is universally held in contempt.
    I’ve complained to the BBC but they also are so biased I expect nothing but weasel words from them.

    Cameron states: Land of Hope is Tory.

    NB: Hope is an emotional state of expectation of things to come in the future.

    He has just stated that the Tory’s are about promise of good things to come in the future, not realized delivery now.

    Against the background of broken cast iron promises, placing faith in such ‘hope’ would be foolish.

    I’ve not really purrruzed it very much but I have seen a publication, like an encyclopedia but with all of the formulas for casting bronze and techniques for gold smithing and calculations for constructing arches and the like.
    I think it was a publication available only to members of the guild of masons.
    It is an organization something like the working class union movement whose purpose is to protect its members livelyhoods. It is an activity that has gone down for generations> The idle priest having gained the knowledge of the movement of stars was able to extract a living from the farmers by calculating what day it was.
    This “special knowledge” which the fuckwit religious teachers of all perversions have been selling to the gullible has fortunately been seen for the nonsense that it is. expect anger and furious thrashing from the fuckwits when they realize they have been found out by all.

    What always strikes me when the rich people talk about ‘hard work’, whose hard work? Maybe it is theirs but more often it is their workers’ hard work, long hours, skills, experience and abilities, often in poor conditions. But they do not get the rich rewards.

    If a capitalist genuinely thanked me for my hard work, then I might take them a little seriously but until then……

    It is so good to see that my mind picture of the English still holds true. There is a deep mental trigger of some sort to want to gather in a pseudo upper middle class tribe as if this gives a security to ones life. It may well do and protect you and yours from the harsh reality for others and ” so what ?”
    In a thousand years will your name be remembered ? perhaps an ancestor of an ancestor invented a diving bell or a propeller or nuclear fission what we want to know is ” what did you do ?”
    Come on bright guy, or are you only interested in your own bank balance and possessions ? If you understood, felt love for the English would you still have the class ridden attitude transformed to social style.
    I think it is so funny to see English people try to be fashionable it is like putting a donkey in racing silks it is not going to win anything

    Labour can dish it out but they can’t take it! Under B.liar & Brown they smeared everyone and even the most vulnerable in society in order to remain in power unchallenged! Why should Ed Miliband & the thug Balls be any different? It seems to me that the more inept a politician is, the more they smear. Miliband is not a first class leader by a long shot nor is Balls a competent economist, so if they rose to power the spin & smear machine will be in overdrive! God help those who get caught up in it! It is destructive! Labour should not dish out what they cannot take. Let this be a lesson to Labour!

The world thinks these men are Hunts so why does the bbc invite them on? They use people who are divisive to get the public to watch. Boring. There was a genuine debate to be had here and it was reduced by a bloke who just slags off everybody he comes into contact with. Has nobody ever just told him to go fuck himself? Ordinarily, Ed Moribund would be right but if you read what his father actually wrote (thats right its on the record) its clear he despised British values and preferred a Cuban/USSR style utopia where we are all equal because collectively we have fuck all. Ed is about redistribution of wealth (yours) – vote for him if thats what you want.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
