Hacked Off Spinner Wanted

Fancy a job spinning to the very journalists your lobbyist bosses want the state to regulate? Hacked Off are looking for a new comms manager to lead their media strategy. Advertised in the Guardian naturally. Crisis management and “handling strong personalities” are required attributes for the successful candidate, who will also need to be able to put up with subbing Brian Cathcart’s blogs. Even better if you’ve got a parliamentary pass

    Mike Oddpiece says:

    Is that his cum face?


  2. 2
    Owen Jones says:

    Memo to Prime Minister David Cameron ‘Communist’ is far more effective an attack line than ‘Marxist’. Also, if we’re being pedantic, it’s Marxian .

    Newsfox says:

    All you’ll end up doing in this job is being asked to wrtie fake reviews for Hugh Grant’s straight-to-BBC-11pm slot movies.

    Gideon sniff sniff Osborne says:

    Are books covered by Levenson and the charter ?


  5. 6
    Gary Bloke says:

    Wouldn’t this be a nice little part-time job for Divine Brown?


  6. 7
    Ellie-Mae (8) says:

    I’d like Guido to apply, just to see how the rejection letter is worded.

    Ric Holden,CCHQ says:

    Word is reaching me that the 1922 Committee have tabled a motion of no confidence in Prime Minister David Cameron after his abysmal performance at today’s PMQ’s.

    Jockaid says:

    Dave had best not pump UK (English) money into Grangemouth, it is going to be in a foreign country next year.

      FFS says:

      I thought the polls were 4:1 against that happening, unless you think we’re so keen to get rid of the place we’ll take “no” as meaning a minority “yes”?

      The tit soon to be booted out of no. 10 says:

      Even better !

    Grant Shapps says:

    Cameron says “switch energy supplier” I bet he thinks you can ski up-hill too!

    He has to be replaced as Leader,before he loses the plot completely.

    The red faced fool is a liability.

      Fishy says:


      Just had £200 back from British Gas, having switched and reduced my energy consumption over he past 12 months.

      Some people would rather moan than find a decent deal

        Tuchi Feeli says:

        cash it today – before the gas goes out.

          David Caneron touched me in my special place says:

          Before the Pound collapses under a mountain of fiat currency debt.

        Do what Dave said keep changing supplier Although I doubt he meant get cashback says:

        Just use the cashback sites and swap energy suppliers every 2 months. You should end the year in profit.

        Just looking at Quidco now.

        £46.50 to go to M&S Energy
        £40 to join all the best Socialists at CO-OP Energy
        £50 to go over to N power
        £46.50 SSE

          David Cameron touched me in my special place says:

          You have to commit to a 12 month rolling contract or refund the cash. Try again.


          • Do what Dave said keep changing supplier Although I doubt he meant get cashback says says:

            Read the terms and conditions. Most say 60 days (2 months) for the cashback. Then move.



          • David Cameron touched me in my special place says:

            Don’t believe it. If everybody did it the companies would in effect be paying us to use gas.

            Just not true.

        Mitch says:

        That would be the £200 you gave them in the first place but didn’t spend?

        Anybody can save money by not buying something.

    Make Fridays Fryfreedays says:

    This modern trend for “Free Days”, like Digital free, alcohol free, Twitter free. Would it be possible for the BBC to make a massive dent in their scheduling and have a Stephen Fry Free Day?

      Anonymous says:

      I suggest a BBC free month for yourself.

      You will not suffer. Any advantage they give is taken away by false information.

      BBC free is defined as not watching any channel except News and Parliament and only these if there is a critical requirement. When answering any poll on viewing figures never admit to watching BBC channels if you are BBC free.

        Make Fridays Fryfreedays says:

        Not that easy I’m afraid. The bastards keep putting him on their radio stations as well.

        David Cameron touched me in my special place says:

        It’s not BBC free if you watch the propaganda they laughingly call news.

        I get BBC World, and often play a game. I count the minutes before either bumsex, global warming, eco-fuckwittery, Islam or nig nogs are mentioned.

        It NEVER lasts longer than 10 minutes.

      FFS says:

      I’d suggest Eastenders-free, but that would really leave a gaping hole in their programming.

    Mum's fishnets says:

    Hugh Grant,for great reward, traded himself to the public as a charming individual.
    Therefor it was in the publics interest to know what a slimy toad he actually was.


  12. 24
    Grant Shapps says:

    Cameron is clearly out of touch with the very real issues facing people under his watch.

    He seems hell bent on being remembered as a “One Term” Prime Minister.


  13. 33
    Wankers like Hugh perpetuate the misserable existence which is prostitution says:

    Did Hugh Grant pay the prostitute the going rate for sucking his knob or the rate he would have demanded for himself if he had to act the part of sucking a knob?


    • 39
      David Cameron touched me in my special place says:

      I don’t think there is much acting about cocksucking needed from that twat.

      Mmmm, let me see: Liz Hurley, roughly, from behind with vigour for free or: some skanky, drug addled ho in a car park for cash?

      Decisions, decisions.

      Rumour has it that he was rude to her. At least, someone said he gave her a right mouthful…

    Mitch says:

    It was $25, which was both.


  15. 41
    Postal Vote says:

    around 5,200 government, health, higher education and schools jobs on Guardian site and you should probably add best part of 830 social care and 230 housing jobs as well.

    taxpayer is funding Guardian through public sector job ads

      well there's a surprise says:

      Proof, if any was needed , that the Saudis are backing the
      Islamic fundamentalists in Syria against Assad.


      • 50
        FFS says:

        Proof, if any were needed, that when the Saudis snap their fingers the US does their bidding (or at least tries to as long as the Russians don’t get in the way).

        And Jack Straw, George Galloway and the rest all thought it was the Israelis pulling the strings. Ha!


  17. 53
    Displaced Brummie says:

    “Must be able to coddle failed actors, has-been comedians and media professor types who think they are much more than reality would suggest. Skilled at giant ego feeding a prerequisite.”

    Who is financing these people? Follow the money.
