Fears for Piers in Kensington

“I know of no cases of phone hacking,” the Mail Editor-in-chief Paul Dacre told the Leveson Inquiry. “Having conducted a major internal inquiry, I am as convinced as I can be that there is no phone hacking on the Daily Mail. I don’t make that statement lightly.” Today’s news that Piers was questioned under police caution late last year is the closest Associated Newspapers have come to being tainted by hacking, even though Morgan’s alleged involvement/knowledge stretches back to a time when he was working for a rival news group.

“Piers Morgan’s role as a Mail on Sunday columnist must surely come under pressure now” says an insider at the paper who has knowledge of Morgan’s vast salary, secured when editor Geordie Greig’s predecessor Peter Wright was in charge. “Geordie didn’t hire Morgan, so he shouldn’t find it a problem to release him. It’s a piss poor column anyway.”

Could Dacre and the increasingly influential Lady Rothermere, wife of the proprietor, find themselves in rare agreement in believing that any association with Morgan is bad for business as long as he has a hacking cloud hanging over him? And heaven knows how CNN took the news.

    He’s got the Gordon Brown touch, everything he touches turns to shite. The Mirror, CNN and now the Daily Mail staff must be worried.

      I wouldn’t risk taking this to trial just on the off chance the jury makes a mistake and doesn’t lock him up. Let’s just chuck him in the water and see if he floats.

        Lord Justice Pickles says:

        He’ll float alright cos he’s a turd.

        “Dan Evans has pleaded guilty to two counts of intercepting communications, at the Sunday Mirror and News of the World, one count of conspiring to commit misconduct in public office, and one count of perverting the course of justice.”

        So if phone hacking was occuring at the Sunday Mirror surely it would be occuring at the Mirror (editor: Piers Morgan)?

      To be fair CNN is, was and has always been fucking shite. It is just TV news for hotel rooms, meaningless rotating wank about nothing. Maybe useful just after you have checked in before you get the wifi password, then it is about as necessary as those healing stones therapy treatment leaflets. No so sure why Guido has such a spike up his arse about him though, maybe because he earns fucking huge sums of dosh for being an obnoxious twunt while Guido is stuck with hawking Amazon links to put food in his kids bellies.

      Casual Observer 6 says:

      Water distribution in most of Californ!a is predominantly man managed. Most of the land used for farming in the Valleys is irrigated.

      The cities (such as San Francisco / Los Angeles etc.) are fed by this system, and take priority.

      Droughts do occur down there from time to time, usually coincident with El Niño, which sees less rainfall in the US.

      Bear in mind that the past few years there has been very low rainfall across the US, which has been contributing to increased food prices globally.

      This has nothing at all to do with ‘global warming’ but is a normal part of the local Californian climate. This can also happen when interested parties wish to manipulate the price of farmland, or free up land for urban development. (Think Enron – but with water…)

          The environmentalists in California make the nutbars in the UK look sane.

          But they are kept away from the important stuff like energy production / distribution, and water.

          This is reflective more of the dry Summers.

          Perhaps also the US has stopped stealing water from Lakes M!chigan and Superior as well. That was causing friction with Canada when it became too obvious a few years back…

          Oh – and they cannot really do desalination as much now with the radioactive nature of the Pacific water thanks to F’ukushima.

          No rain in California is a good thing as it is also helping to minimize the fallout contaminating the land in that state from J’apan.

    Real wrong doing is yet to be proven, but the lows he dragged certain publications to with the faked maltreatment of !raqis by UK soldiers still to this day remain beneath contempt.

    This may sound like a really stupid question, but:

    Why am I seeing two Princes of the realm actually helping with the practical aspects of flood defence, yet seeing Dave standing around like a broken teapot with Miliband Syndrome ?

    Top marks for W’illiam and H’arry – and they are doing absolutely the right thing, as C’harles did when he went out to see the damage himself the other week.

    But Dave ?

    Seriously, what the fuck does the tool think he is gaining ?

    He should get at least a couple of photo’s of himself shifting some sand bags.

    If the Prince’s can keep at it long enough for the Pappz to capture shots of them playing catch as they build up a few walls, what is Dave’s excuse ?

    Good result for Labour, and deservedly so. They are the only credible alternative to the ConLib Coagulation. The writing is surely on the wall for the LibDems. The broken promises and the sheer duplicity of Clegg the Clagnut is coming home to roost, and, again, deservedly so. No one is going to believe anything they say between now and the General Election. Serves them right, they deserve electoral extinction. In respect of the UKIP/Tory vote, I have mixed feelings. I cannot help but take delight in seeing any Tory candidate beaten into third place, because that’s where they belong, beaten and unelected.

    However, that is over-shadowed by my disappointment that the right seems to have opted for UKIP instead. What can a bunch on swivel-eyed loons with effectively only one policy offer the British electorate? I suppose a chance for people to vent their racism and frustration on scapegoats. I’m just glad they didn’t get that much of a proportion of the vote. Nige Fartage can’t really draw much comfort from this result. All they did was effectively split the Tory vote

    As an expat in NYC, I concur that CNN generally – and Piers’ show in particular – is crap.
    He does manage to get decent guests now and again – but then he applies his infuriating, normal interview mode: talk over the guests, never let them finish a sentence, and talk about himself as much as possible !

    And I can’t believe he STILL has a column in the Mail.
    I distinctly remember when he first started his column in the MoS Magazine – on the inside back page. To be fair, it started off pretty good, and he gave away information about the high and mighty, celebs etc and it was highly readable fun.
    But after a while I noticed that the info sharing had dropped off significantly – and most of the content was about himself.
    I then started to scan the articles to see how often ‘I’ and ‘me’ or ‘my’ appeared – which seemed like every other sentence. So I stopped reading his column.

    Am I jealous, bitter and twisted that a smarmy, pompous, ignorant oaf like Morgan makes huge money – too bloody right I am… ;)

      Yeah I know what you are saying. But the guy must be secretly dying inside. Los Angeles is LA LA land. Piers isn’t stupid. He knows it’s all fake. He’s making his money and then getting outta there. And yes he hacked phones. Everyone did. Is he going to admit it under oath?. No way. I hope he looks at Andy Coulson and thinks “there for the grace of god go I”, because they were both as thick as thieves and both looking of the next big buck 20 years ago.

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.”
