End of a Chapter

Power Trip
Guido has taken a week to read and review Damian McBride’s book for the Spectator and taking the opportunity to clarify for the record:

“On a personal note, as McBride’s nemesis, allow me to correct at least one of his claims. He spins that I was ‘playing with a stacked deck’, running ‘a mysterious dark-arts operation’ against him. The truth is that when Derek Draper tried to portray Iain Dale (now McBride’s publisher) and myself as racists, it pricked the conscience of a fair-minded Labour party source. I got a phone call out of the blue telling me that there were emails that could prove that Downing Street, in the form of the PM’s press adviser himself, was behind those smears. Ironically, McBride’s confession in Power Trip that he would — in breach of the Official Secrets Act — surreptitiously log in to Brown’s secure government email system and retrieve information to repackage and leak to the lobby, means that, of the two of us, he is the one likely to be in trouble for email hacking.”

Reading the details of the book reminded Guido just how hard a whack McBride got given. The full review is here

        The BBC has wasted so much energy today trying to
        get the Editors of the Daily Mail and MoS sacked,it’s
        forgotten how to report an actual news story.
        It’s still reporting “an incident” in Washington,when Sky &
        CNN gave viewers a long list of facts 30 minutes ago.
        And the BBC’s live feed keeps breaking.
        Exactly what are we paying our licence fee for?

    “surreptitiously logged in to Brown’s secure government email system…”- utter balls. Brown is neck deep in all the smearing that went on. McBride was merely his attack dog. The one-eyed mong is as nasty as his Rottweiler.

      Just wondering says:

      So did Brown give his password to the sewer manager or did he surreptitiously watch Brown type it in to his computer, didn’t they both sit with desks next to each other, why didn’t Brown change his password if the thought it was compromised, why didn’t he change it when he became PM or why didn’t IT change it, summit smells.

    Not really credible to believe that gurninggordon did not know what mcbride was up to.

      McBride would not have dared to do anything without Brown’s authority. Balls and Miliband both knew what was going on and agreed with it. Oh how they all lie and practice to deceive.


  5. 7
    Gidders says:

    If I remember McBride went to the same school as Fawkes the Elder, so they probably knew each other personally, so there might have been hostility between them from that time Fawkes the Elder is 3/4 years older than McBride (I cannot believe McB is only 43 he looks 55 yo

    Firstly, I would like to state that I think the Mail is a steaming great pile of wank.

    Nevertheless, I cannot find fault in its statement “Adolph Miliband hated Britain”.

    FFS, he wanted Hitler to win. He wanted to impose a communist government, confiscate all private property and conscript us all into a drone-workforce. He wanted to abolish freedom of choice.

    Given that this wasn’t his country and he frankly had no right to be here after the war, he had a f*cking nerve.

    Both main parties in France approved a law today barring Amazon from shipping bargain books for free.

    Book retailers can only lower the set price by 5%, in an effort to regulate competition between booksellers and to promote reading.

    Despite this, sales dropped by 4.5% in 2012. Lessons will not be learned…

    Needless to say, this law is in breach of EU law, upheld by the French only when it suits them, curiously the opposite to practice in the UK.

    This means the French are mongs for trying to interfere with the market whilst we are mongs for cowering down, in the way we do, to an unelected body. The European acolytes are rich mongs who live at our expense and contribute nothing to the general good.

        Amazon binds publishers,does not pay its fair tax share,is a very bad employer,locks people into its Kindle(you only lease books)& are a huge shitty corporation that looks at it’s bottom line.It’s trying to destroy independent bookshops & publishers.

        If you go Amazon’s way there will be only several million self published books that are utter crap that no one will want to buy.

        Authors? Publishers? Who gives a fuck is Amazons view.

        Be very careful what you wish for.


    • 115
      Casual Observer 3 says:

      Such interference in the market place makes little sense.

      • 132
        nellnewman says:

        It’s an absolute nonsense. Every avenue to disseminate books and knowledge should be encouraged.

      Bit of a hornet’s nest I seem to have disturbed!

      Since I have between 8,000 and 9,000 books (and do not possess a Kindle though I know someone who does), I can claim to have an interest here.

      My political angle is already expressed, interfere with the m@rket and the law of unintended consequences takes over. BTW, the French also charge VAT (TVA) on books which Britain, to its credit, does not.

      My realpolitik ideas likewise.

      I am never going to pay for reading material that I cannot own, store, retrieve in any manner convenient to me. Ever. Full stop. I do not need to. So to that extent (incl. DRM), and that only, do I agree with UH.

      The French are part of a market. They have not been good at developing it of late and this measure simply delays the day they start to regain ground.

      Their language, despite the use of law, is on the wane. I say that, as a relatively mediocre speaker of it, not rejoicingly but sympathetically. They have gone the wrong way about defending it – in a modern, interconnected world.

      I have possible explanations for this but do not wish to offend them further. :-)

          Not for the first time, as I am sure you will know. All governments are whores when it comes to inward investment as I have found out since emigrating. I can own a second home in the UK and not be charged CGT upon disposal. Why? Because I would invest elsewhere otherwise.

          Do I think that is right that I can do that and you, as a resident, cannot? No!

          Do you expect me not to take advantage of that situation? I guess you are decent enough to say no as well.

          Governments fuck their residents as they are captive. Fact. Where I now “live” is exactly the same. So I don’t go there much…

          Since I did not make these rules, I figure that me and mine come first. They are my obligation and I would rather die than fail them. I would not blame you for thinking likewise.

        I collect books, books that are particular to my taste and relevant to a certain past. I would no sooner own a Kindle than sleep with a Socialist. Books are beautiful things to hold and savour. The smell of them is wonderful, I am finding Chaucer out of my reach at the moment but am saving for some special editions. I have Hogarth, Lord Byron, the whole toot, all stored away, the only thing that is comparable is riding a decent hunter, and smelling the sweat when you take his saddle of, or the smell of new born pups, sorry, I think that these are so English.

    Let's have the truth please Red Ed and the BBC says:

    Was the memorial for Professor Keen held at Guys hospital really just a family affair as the BBC is reporting?

    Not one of us would want reporters gate crashing our Uncle’s last respects from the family.

    But was it just a private family gathering held in Guys hospital?

    I don’t know. But I have my doubts that it was a simple family gathering. Professor Keen was widely known throughout the medical world, he was also politically involved with the NHS and was widely known by many Leftists who support the NHS.

    I strongly suspect that Red Ed and the BBC are not telling the complete story about this “family” memorial service. For a start no way would two reporters be able to gate crash most family gatherings and as the Professor was widely known throughout medicine and politics I would wager many a stranger turned up and many a none family member was invited.

    Was it funded by the NHS?

        QT Watch says:

        The UK government, whilst signed into Lisbon (irrelevant of whoever signed it) is not able to restrict the free movement of people to the UK.

        People are fully aware that Caroline Flint, Europe Minister at the time, did not read this document before Gordon Brown decided against advice to sign it.

        Cameron is trying to do two things:

        i) Slow down immigration
        ii) Deal with problem of EU nationals taking advantage of UK public services

        Addressing the two issues:

        i) There is not much the government can do other than invoke Article 50 of Lisbon and negotiate a quota system for EU migration. The original request for negotiation has already failed so that is the only option, unless Article 50 is invoked to exit.

        Chapter 2 of Lisbon deals with immigration.

        Article 77 establishes harmonized rules over visa issuance for member states, and removes rights for border checks by member states on internal borders.

        Article 78 deals with common policy for dealing with asylum and massive refugee inflows.

        Article 79 deals with third-country nationals. This allows member states to set immigration quotas for third-country nationals. Third-country nationals are individuals whose original country of original is a non-EU country. This includes those from outside the EU without EU citizenship who may be resident in another member state.

        Article 80 is a statement of solidarity.

        Government is addressing issue of third-country nationals in immigration policy, which it has the right to, however it has ceded control of visa specification to the harmonized EU standard.

        Shapps lied tonight on QT as he stated that similar controls were to be implemented upon internal EU migrants as well, as the questioner had raised in his question.

        The UK cannot deny access to internal migrants or place restrictions upon their ability to remain in the country, and moreover are obliged to allow internal EU migrants to have access to public funds and services in order to survive if such people do not have a means of making a living.



        ii) Cameron is trying, but as with most of the rest of his efforts in office, that effort is disintegrating into farce:

    Fucking hell, just as the This Week sofa got used to the lack of heffers in Fartbott and 5 bellies Smiff along comes Tom Watson.

      Alice says:

      This Week has gone completely down the pan and is no longer worth watching. This weeks concluding theme was that Ed Miliband has has come out best from the conference season, ignoring the fact that almost all informed opinion slaughtered his key issue, the fatuous energy price cap plan, and glossing over the truth supporting the Mail’s attack on Miliband’s father.

    And fuck that turkey necked tramp too says:

    Those who still watch this QT shite will surely see through the rigged audience whooping and hollering farce.
    Letts is leagues above the rest of the nonentities…and the Chairman who doesn’t appreciate his biased questions being pulled up

      QT Watch says:

      There were two truly nasty moments on UKIP tonight.

      i) Medh! Hasan got the audience worked up and then Quentin spoke. The laugh of derision from the audience had a tone that was far from humor, one would advance: sinister.

      ii) A lone UKIP supporter in the middle of the audience, when speaking: The audience turned on him.

      Definitely not pleasant viewing tonight.

        If I catch the person who was nasty to my little Quentin, I’ll scratch their eyes out.

      REALWORLDER says:

      The sad part about all this is that the BBC under estimate the intelligence of the public by assuming that an audience of whooping, screaming, unwashed underclass, labour voting morons will somehow influence their opinions!

    ..so the row about Ed Miliband’s grief at his father’s memory continues.

    Now, in other news, no one gives a shit.

    Aylesbury Result:

    On the basis of the results tonight:

    Vote Conservative, Get Lib Dem

    The British media are cunts says:

    You have to wonder why Letts didn’t ask for a show of hands as to who bought the Daily Mail. A newspaper that has 10 times the circulation of the Guardian, yet you just know there would have been no show of hands.

    The laugh is the BBC get away with the biased audience, just about everyone is either a student, employed in the public sector or called Mohammad.

    Not a lot of cab drivers, truckers or builders in the audience.

    May I just compliment the poster who has started to use my moniker ‘illogical’ during the last few threads.
    I would request though if they wish to continue borrowing it they reserve their remarks to one off sniping about seperate issues, and not replying [in my name], to those reacting to an original comment of my own.
    Lots of possible nom de plumes out their. Try using a different one SVP.
    Thanks in anticipation…..

        One of us, or may be both of us is / are Schrodinger’s Cat , and should be requesting the 5 pounds etc. ;)

        My feeling is it must be you since I do not possess the IT know-how to be able to use those crazy cyphers to camouflage my true name.

        On the other hand it could be me playing the innocent ploy card.

        Whoever we are Good morning. Hope the day goes better for you / us.

          They say that one in three of us is homosexual. It is certainly not either of me so I’m afraid, by deductive process etc.. :-)

          Good morning nonetheless.

    Why should you say that?

    The only people I am prejudiced against are those who call themselves Anonymous.

    BBC Breakfast has just interviewed Ed Miliband. What a nice BBC/Labour piece of propaganda.
    Just how low will the Miliband/Labour bandwagon stoop for publicity. Sickening is the word that springs to mind.

      It's the Mail wot done it says:

      I suggest that you forward your e mail to Dacre at the Daily Mail. He’s given Miliband and Labour a massive boost in the media and probably the polls

      Dumbed-down Britain gets on my tits says:

      Where you went wrong was to watch the bbc news in the first place.

      Whilst I never watch BBC TV news, I’ve just tried-out their Android news app. One article was headed “Are hamsters better value than GPs?” and another, regarding bitcoins, mentioned “users concerns [sic]”. So, both inane and illiterate, much like the Telegraph’s website nowadays. I have uninstalled.

      Thin edge of the wedge to introduce Leveson’s plans in full perhaps?
      Only Labour, Z list celebrities and the Beeb to gain from putting a spoke in the wheels of the SKy, Mail free press juggernought etc etc.

        John Bull says:

        So it begins to look like the lawyers are in for a few heavy pay packets in the not too distant future! Leveson should effoff back to Oz and stay there. They love kangaroo courts in the Aunty Podes.
