Mail on Sunday Editor Apologises to Miliband
Suspends Two Hacks

Mail on Sunday editor Geordie Greig has apologised “unreservedly for a reporter intruding into a private memorial service”:

“The reporter was sent without my knowledge; it was a decision which was wrong. Two journalists have been suspended and a full investigation is now being carried out. I would further like to apologise to members of the family and friends attending the service for this deplorable intrusion. I have already spoken personally to Ed Miliband and expressed my regret that such a terrible lapse of judgement should have taken place. It is completely contrary to the values and editorial standards of The Mail on Sunday. I understand that Lord Rothermere is personally writing to Ed Miliband.”

Damage control for ‘the plan’ to takeover?

            No different to the organised campaign to get hundreds of thousands of Mail readers to complain to Ofcom about Jonathan Ross and Russell Brand’s prank phone call, which resulted in sackings. Not to defend Ross and Brand for their infantile prank but the “moral guardians” at the Fail, i.e. Dacre and his Victorian world view, decided to get their readers to bombard Ofcom and the bbc with complaints. But I get it, when righties do it, it’s exercising free speech. When anyone else does it, they’re fascists who are trying to stop free speech.

    Letter from Adolf Hitler, 7th December 1933, to Lord Rothermere says:

    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. I am convinced that no one who fought in the front trenches during the world war, no matter in what European country, desires another conflict.

    (For those who might not know, Mr Hitler was a rather bad fellow who caused a World War and genocide, including the murder of 6 million J*ws.)

    Al-Beeba WatO reported Millipede saying “Sending a reporter to my late uncle’s memorial crosses a line of common decency. I believe it a symptom of the culture and practices of both the Daily Mail and the Mail on Sunday.

    There are many decent people working at those newspapers and I know that many of them will be disgusted by this latest episode. But they will also recognise that what has happened to my family has happened to many others.

    I believe no purpose would be served by me complaining to the Press Complaints Commission because it is widely discredited.

    Instead, I am writing to you as the owners of the Daily Mail and the Mail on Sunday because I believe it is long overdue that you reflect on the culture of your newspapers. You should conduct your own swift investigation into who was responsible at a senior level for this latest episode and also who is responsible for the culture and practices of these newspapers which jar so badly with the values of your readers.”

    Predictability they omitted..

    “There are bigger issues for the people of Britain in the midst of the worst cost of living crisis for a century than intrusion into the life of my family. But the reaction of many people to the Daily Mail’s attacks on my father this week demonstrates that the way your newspapers have behaved does not reflect the real character of our country.”

      There was outrage in the press and a few labour MPs sheepishly said it was wrong – but no one resigned, there were no official rights of reply to any of the newspapers, by the Thatcher family, it was not headline news on the BBC – nor did any of the family make an announcement on TV (like Miliband did).

    The defence of Ralph Miliband appears to hinge on the as yet unquestioned claim that he could not have hated Britain because he fought for Britain in the war against the Nazis…

    But is it not remotely possible, that having sought sanctuary in a country, that he then very soon joined their forces to fight against the Nazis, not because he loved the new country he had moved to, but because he hated the Nazis.

    Fighting against the Nazis, those who have forced you to flee your home country, who have perhaps murdered family members, does not automatically mean that you love the country whose forces you have joined to enable you to fight them.

    It has been suggested that Ralph Miliband despised the British action in the Falklands – so his fighting for Britain, as evidence of his “Love of Britain”, goes only so far as demonstrating his understandable hatred of the Nazis.

        Desperate attempt to divert attention away from
        the inexcusable fact that Miliband Snr was an anti-

        How can a politician ‘force’ advertisers to boycott the mail ?

        If not by physical means, the only other option she has is to commit an act of corporate libel.

      OK, so don’t worry about Milliwatts concerns, instead stop advertising in the Mail because it once spoke findly of Hitler, whilst under an editor the current editor couldn’t have ever met, let alone agreed with.

      For the same reason, don’t buy a Mercedes or a Volkswagen.

      What do you mean by ‘force’. The Labour party are reverting to full on control freakery command economy mode. What I object to is being forced to pay tax to support ludicrous public sector advertising in The Guardian. Even with that subsidy it still loses a million a week.

    This is much more important news for today:

    Excellent interview – well done Amjad: Clear, on message, and demonstrated good techniques for cutting through the BBC spin.

    Other good replies for UKIP:

    Q: Are you saying that there are no rac!sts in UKIP ?
    A: Are there no rac!sts in any other party with a large membership. UKIP is not a rac!st party.

    Q: Is it rac!st to refer to ‘Bongo Bongo’ land ?
    A: No, but it is not helpful for discussing the issue of foreign aid.

    Q: Did UKIP distance itself from the remarks because they were rac!st ?
    A: No. The party distanced because the remarks did not help with the discussion about foreign aid…

    NB: UKIP does not have a whip system. Members can have their membership withdrawn by the executive if they transgress the parties code of conduct.

    Q: Was Bloom removed from UKIP because he is a rac!st / sex!st etc. ?
    A: No. Bloom was removed as his conduct over handling the scurrilous accusations of rac!sm leveled by the reporter Cr!ck were considered to have brought the party into disrepute by the executive. (I am not involved with party discipline you will have to speak to … for further comment.)

    Q: Is it rac!st to describe a (female) journalist as being of ‘some form of ethnic extraction’ ?
    A: No, but with political correctness gone mad how else could one identify her ?

    Q: UKIP do not have the resources to run as a professional party, in particular with handling events such as the conference and the media. How can you claim to be a professional party ?
    A: Talk about increases in budget due to increase in donations and membership. Refer to members who are involved in that side of strategy and decline to comment further unless involved.

    Q: UKIP are not a disciplined party, how do they hope to install discipline ?
    A: UKIP are which was reflected by the executives decision with Bloom.

Gyles Brandreth writes in his memoirs:

“Sunday, May 10, 1998

Early start: appearing on Breakfast With Frost, to be broadcast from 11 Downing Street. The Chancellor [Gordon Brown] is grouchily amiable, but so earnest — and still biting his fingernails to the quick.

After the show, he took us upstairs to his flat. He lives above No 10, while Blair and family are in the No 11 duplex, which is bigger and more like a proper house.

I was intrigued that, when he took us into his bedroom, the Chancellor rather ostentatiously opened the built-in wardrobes, as if he wanted us to see the women’s frocks that were hanging in there.

They looked quite large, but I don’t think they belong to Gordon. I assume they belong to his girlfriend [Sarah Macaulay, who he later married].

I presume he was keen for us to know that he has one — and that she’s not a ‘beard’. I don’t think he does anything without calculation.”
