Twitter Media Bitch Fight of the Week: Blair v Brown Proxy Hate

A friendly exchange between Sky buddies Kevin Maguire and Andrew Pierce was rudely interrupted last night by a tetchy Bad Al Campbell.

The proxy war between Blairites (Campbell) and Brownites (Maguire) will run and run.

The needling is sharp:

    C.O.Jones says:

    Truth is a meal best served cold.

    Other names?

    John Smith says:

    Not so much “Blair v Brown” as “Tw@t v @rsehole”?

      Having started a real war – on false grounds – Brown, Blair and their mates are now starting a phony war – for phony reasons. Proving again that they remain two cheeks of the same (New Labour) Arse.

    Evil Dead says:

    Is it bad that I hope Blair and Campbell each get 40 types of cancer, multiple sclerosis, AIDS and motor neurone disease as soon as possible?

  5. 6
    Casual Observer 5 says:

    Even in defeat Campbell is utterly contemptuous.

  6. 7
    Steve Miliband says:

    I see Campbell is advising Ed. Bet he’s itching to become Lord Campbell.He knows no one would ever vote for him.

    Campbell’s partner is just as much a c-unt as he is.

    So why didn't you during your 13 years of squandering the nation's wealth? says:

      More homes Why? says:

      I am not convinced that we need more houses. Perhaps/maybe in the London area but there seems to be No shortage elsewhere. Of course the builders say otherwise.

      • 24
        Adolph Miliband hated Britain and so does his mutant son says:

        We need to build 200 houses every day for the next 20 years just to house immigrants.

        What I find interesting: Miliband wants to create “more and better paid jobs” and “tackle insecurity at work”.

        Precisely the opposite of what the last Labour government (in which he was a minister) did.

      Entrepeneurs create jobs. So it helps not to tax the pips out of them while they are trying to do so.

      Nobody does parasitism like Labour.

        Actually... says:

        Most ‘entrepreneurs’ are parasites, creating ‘their’ wealth by depriving their workers of a significant portion of the wealth that THEY create, to keep for themselves.

        Companies should be made to pay their employees dividends based on profits, not fecking shareholders. Those that refuse should have the same amount, plus penalty, taxed off them.

        Just imagine that – the people that make the money getting paid a fair share of it, instead of a subsistence wage with a zero hour contract.

          Frank says:

          Genius. Will these employees invest their money in the company as well? Like shareholders do with no guarantee of a return.

          • Actually... says:


            I don’t see ANY difference between ‘investing’ in shares and ‘investing’ in Lucky Boy in the 3.15 at Cheltenham. People seem to think that shareholders are altruistic, selfless individuals who want for nothing more than the success of the company concerned, when in actual fact they simply want to make money from doing nothing. The only way a man who does nothing gets his money is by depriving someone who does do something of some portion of the wealth they have created

            Employees invest far more important things into companies than just money. Their lives, for example. What would be a fair dividend for that investment?

          Jack Ketch says:

          You Economic illiterate. That is what the Co-op is supposed to do, yet ask any Co-op worker where his “divi” (bonus) went last year. That august socialist body also expects its workers to accept 8hr and 16hr per week contracts with “any time” shifts at minimum wage.

          • Actually... says:

            You appear to be the illiterate one. You site an example of a company which is doing precisely the opposite of what I have suggested, then tell me I’m stupid for thinking this a good system.

      Orson Cart says:

      So what about the thirteen years with barely a council house built, with much stock unloaded to housing associations ?

      • 62
        By the way says:

        They had to spend millions on PR to con people into voting for Housing Associations. That, and the ‘Tenant Reps’, which were all part of the selling process. So tenants only had one option, vote for the sell off or the investment in decent homes stops.

      Wait - what! says:

      Government cannot, ever, create real jobs.
      If they do then it’s just a different name for welfare.
      Shame this tosspot doesn’t know or care.

        In that case, you lot should be up-in-the-air about government wasting billions of tax payers money on nuclear subs, aircraft carriers, tanks and other costly toys. But it seems that:

        Public Money ‘invested’ in arms – good?

        Public Money wasted on housing people – bad?

    I just wish that fucking lying psychopathic piece of shit Campbell would stay away from Turf Moor.

    This week last week next week says:

    A few years back Millar appear on his Week to voice her opinions. Asked about Bristol, her home town, which has been an local authority educational mess for donkey years she had nothing to say.

    Changes have occurred in Bristol. Do you just need by pass the current lot to achieve change to deliver improvements?

    Does she appear in the media to say “I have just read the ofstead report this morning…”

    How do you go about securing School discipline or
    sport for all
    3 Rs
    reading etc etc

    Which illness will Campbell be suffering from next week?
    Alcoholism, depression…or has he a new one to feel sorry for himself about?

    I’d give that a win to Maguire.

    auntie DUGGAN says:

    Of the two I would choose Maguire by a long chalk,Imet Maguire on a train to Newcastle he seemed a decent enough bloke whilst I vehemently disagree with his politics,Campbell on the other hand is a total shit you only have to look at his so called working life porn writer,apologist for Maxwell and chief Aide de Camp in the reign of terror,a self confessed alcholic and depressive.

    Wait - what! says:

    Would pay good money to see these two annihilate each other.

    Ed the Eunuch says:

    How did someone from Labour’s right end up in bed & ready to shafted by a bunch of commies? By buying into the left. Lock, stock & barrel.

    A vote for Ed is a vote for Len! They are a pair of Siamese twins who need to be surgically removed from one another!
    Ed Ballox Autumn statement analysis was nothing more than a nod & a wink to the Unions and offered nothing constructive about the economy as a whole. Just doom & gloom statesments to further Ed Lenin’s cost of living bullshit policies. The reason Balls does not want to commit to real economic solutions, is it would mean an all out war with the unions. Look what happened the last time Ed M took on the Unions. He lost!

    The Labour Party is incoherent, it is a mish mash of Labour Lefty tribalists dependent on Unions for funding and thus defines Labour policies for the forseeable future.

    Even Campbell is lost up his lefty backside now, with views to renationalisation. Wtf? The country cannot afford it! But this has always been the case with Labour’s economic policies, sin now & repent later or let the electorate eat gruel under Tory rule then Labour can critise them. Labour are the problem not the solution.

    Campbell has bought into the left while giving the appearance that suggests otherwise. Typical Campbell ambiguity.

    Ed will never be his own man when he & his party are in the pockets of the unions. Labour have in effect descended into student left wing politics where idealism clashes with reality. Time to get rid of the lefty losers & build a credible opposition. It is long overdue!

    Castrato says:

    A silly handbag fight between a pair of lying, lefty gaybos!

    How about a public castration? Then Labour will finally be in tune with the rest of Britain.

    Bring it on!

    I have never understood why any of the media carry anything that Alistair Campbell has to say. A hack journo out of his depth who colluded with Blair to go to war with lies and dodgy dossiers. Next he#ll tell us he never knew who Dr. Kelly was. Have another drink Alistair.

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.”
