Clegg Using Taxpayer Funded SpAd for Secret Debate Trick

Desperate to draw blood tomorrow, Nick Clegg has cracked out the Student Debating Playbook. The Deputy Prime Minister’s taxpayer-funded Special Adviser Adam Pritchard is secretly approaching bosses from household name firms to try get them to sign this pre-drafted letter to be placed in a paper tomorrow morning:

Dear Sir,

Nick Clegg and Nigel Farage will this week hold their second debate on the question of Britain’s future in Europe. As leading transport companies representing all sectors, we are clear that the UK should remain in the European Union which has delivered unparalleled benefits for the British transport and freight sector by allowing our companies to cross borders and enter markets across Europe. The dismantling of trade barriers has been responsible for cheaper prices for consumers and a dramatic increase in the choice of destinations at the fingertips of holidaymakers across the country. 

It is crucial that we do not cut ourselves off from the rest of Europe and that we defend the future health of the transport sector and the hundreds of thousands (or millions?) of jobs it supports. Leaving the EU would take us from economic certainty to huge uncertainty with the potential for extra costs and burdensome barriers impeding freight flows and harming passengers, businesses and employees alike. 

The EU needs reform. The full potential of the single market is yet to be fully realised and we must break down the final barriers to transport and trade. However, to seize these opportunities, the UK needs to be in Europe leading reform, working with other countries and delivering the changes that will boost our trade within the EU and beyond.

Yours

Clegg will then brandish this letter from the podium as if he had nothing to do with it. Well that was the plan anyway…

Last week we had Clegg’s office admit that the DPM was being briefed by taxpayer funded civil servants for his robotic ‘fact’ barrage at Farage, now this week his taxpayer-funded gofers are attempting trickery. It’s as if Clegg is scared…

          Hi guys

          We’ve been super busy here, calling in favours from everywhere, and getting articles placed multiple times in the papers.

          The Daily Mail have been absolute stars I can tell you, and there is no way we could have got the negative coverage for Nigel that we need, and that our bonus’s are based on, without their unique help. Thumbs up lads, thanks.

          Also the Alistair Campbell interview with Nigel was an absolute gift… god knows why he did that interview with him, it has given us a minefield of quotes that we can misrepresent, partially quote and smear to our hearts content…

          The big theme this week has been trying to link UKIP with the B and P, its difficult to do becuase they are a left wing organisation and anyone with half a brain knows this, but if you say the two names enough, and repeat them, again,again, again, again, the subtleties are lost and the damage is done. Well thats our strategy anayway.

          Must get on now, we have a very busy week and are prepping the weekend press with the stories and smears they need to run after the debate. Lets hope we don’t get caught out by the opinion polls again which proves us wrong last week.

          We can but try.

          As Bruce would say, keep on smear’n !!

            Ahh the old ‘racist’ smear, its one of my old favourites, its worked for us in the past, but our analysis now shows its past its sell by date, as much as I would love it not to be !

            The public have sort of realised that Farage and UKIP, are not, and never have actually been, racist.

            The problem for us is, Nigel bowled a blinder last week with Clegg, when he explained very simply, UKIP are not against immigration, they are against ‘uncontrolled immigration’. It was as if the public had never actualy heard this before… To be fair the media have never previously reported that so why would they know it !!!

            What made complete sense was Nigel saying he wants a points based system which can attract and target immigrants with the skills that the UK needs at any particular time.

            There is no denying, it makes sense and strikes a cord with voters, even black and Asian immigrants already here (our polling tells us this).

            This was a big problem for us becuase a) its common sense and thus b) it chimes with the public.

            The nub of the issue is, no one is saying that Canada or Austrialia is racist for having a points / skills based immigration policy, so how can we call UKIP racist for simply wanting the same thing.

            So whilst we want to keep playing the racist card becuase it plays so well to the media, the massive problem is, its hard to make it stick any more, the debate has moved on.

            Don’t get me wrong, I’m more than happy to keep chucking out the cheap racist smears, again, again and again, but there does come a point when the public realise we are like the kid crying wolf if we keep screaming racist. The racist card has lost its currency.

            The bottom line is, the racist card against UKIP is now counter productive and doing us active harm. Lynton has done some private polling which proves most of the public (apart from the really really thick ones) just dont belive this racist smear any more.

            I will give it a few more goes in the Mirror though… some of their readers still belive it !!

But can I try again? I’ll accept less money this time. I’m going to try to say how modern Clegg is and how Farage is a lot like the B & P and reminds me of Hitler.

    Cable had an agreement for the banks to hold onto shares and they ignored him and sold them anyway. You played a blinder, Vince.

    Then, the banks told Cable ‘that they would not buy in at any more than 330p – the eventual price at which shares were set’ Played like a fiddle!

    The City ran rings around a barely competent Govt Minister, Vince Cable, and he gave into them.

    So, now we have a Business Minister who doesn’t ‘get’ business; a Chancellor who doesn’t ‘get’ economics; a Health Minister who doesn’t ‘get’ health; an Environment Minister who doesn’t ‘get’ climate change; a Work and Pensions Sec who doesn’t ‘get’ social security and an Education Sec who has no understanding of education.Great!

    What is wrong with Clegg getting pro EU people on board? Pro EU need to step up the debate. Neanderthals, bigots and every other anti EU numpties who can not be bothered to check Farages facts are falling for the UKIP rubbish. Business people know the risk if leaving the EU so they should be involved in the debate. Farage lost the EU debate ages ago that is why he turned the debate to migrant and immigration. That way he picks up the loonies from the BNP and EDL who just hate foreigners. Add a bit of anti human rights into the argument and every one who blames the world for their own trouble is on board. tonight’s debate will just be another shouting match between a pub debater and a failed political party leader. It will make no difference to the referendum when it happens. Britain will vote to stay in. That is why Farage hardly talks about the EU now without all the extra anti arguments added in.

    Churchill must have been mistaken when he said “If you’re not a liberal at twenty you have no heart, if you’re not a conservative at forty you have no brain.”

    This is clearly wrong but it is promulgated to trip the unwary up. These states clearly need to be reversed and it is preferable to get the misguided right-wing stage out of the way in one’s youth. My intellectual hero, Tony Benn, would surely have approved of this.

    If one looks at the continent of South America, the states on the map such as Chile and Paraguay are situated on the left of the landmass whilst the socialist paradises (most of the others) are on the right. That alone should have given away the clue to the new realignment.

      Do you think of north as up ? how strange. Of course maps are drawn the way they are so as to hide the existence of the Aleutian Islands which “THEM” don’t want anybody to know about.

    No Mr Clegg says:

    Europe is the UK’s most loss making market.
    This is odd, because the EU and British europhiles have been harmonising the UK with Europe for over four decades now, while insisting that Europe is our most important market.
    Figures show the UK’s current account balance with Europe is in deficit by some £90bn-£100bn a year, far worse than any other geographical region on the planet.
    Even the OBR recent report forecasts that the global market is set to grow twice as fast as the EU’s.
    Why anyone would want the UK to remain within the EU is beyond me to logically understand.

    Two years ago people were saying who’s this Farage bloke………….Well now you know. And still the thick twats believe the lies and promises of the other three prats, mainly because mummy and daddy have always voted this way.
    Well if you want to get into the U.K.I.P. party, first you’ve got to show us your balls, if you know where they are.

    Show us the list of greedy company bosses that support the lowering of British workers’ standard of living and EU tax avoidance.
    80% of British GDP is traded internally and these corporate parasites need British consumers more than we need them.
    Let’s all boycott Clegg’s EU obsessive paymasters.

    Expect this to continue ad nauseum. If you have been watching closely the debate on the Scottish referendum, which no one has, because why would they – then you will see a pattern. Business leaders strongarmed, woops I mean approached for support, “news” planted in the Daily Mail, “reports” from “impeccable” sources backing up exactly what the Minister says. Civil Servants Shanghai’d into providing ammo for debate etc, smears, lies and utter nonsense. They are doing this already in Scotland and will pick up speed in England on this as well (essentially the same arguments) to fully play out their arguments is to talk down the country by saying we couldn’t POSSIBLY manage on our own

    Reblogged this on wheelsofpoliticalsteel and commented:
    If he can’t explain why he thinks the EU is a good thing to be a member of, without help, then he obviously has no real reason for being IN other than he hopes to work for the EU in future like Baroness Ashton, Neil Kinnock & Glynis Kinnock! He should be able to recite chapter & verse from memory everything that supports #WhyCleggIsIn.

    Nigel Farage on the other hand hasn’t had any coaching, speaks without notes regularly extolling the criminal waste of tax payers money from every member state and why it makes NO Economic sense to be a federalist union, a political union or to be ruled by an Undemocratic body and whom we have no way of holding them to task!
    I know #WhyImOut as do many millions of citizens all over the European Union who can see their hard earned money wasted!

    Watch Dimblebore pander to the future Lord Clegg. How on earth did this public school s**t become the so-called “Deputy Prime Minister”: shamelessly milking the perks and relying on (at least two) close protection officers constantly keeping the plebs from assaulting this brazen chancer and liar

    After last weeks performance Monsieur Clegg is going to need to pull something out of his hat if he hopes to win over the British people. Or has he given up hope of winning over the people and now is hoping for a nice EU job after he’s deposed as LibDem leader/Deputy Prime Minister?

    Tax payer funded propaganda for the LibDems!

    A striking similarity to the tax payer funded propaganda, initiated by the PM from all UK Government Departments, against Scotland’s independence movement.

    Cameron, who said it should be a decision for the Scots when he defended his position of not debating the issues with Salmond.

    A whole cast of the usual suspects, Conlibliebore, BBC, the press, the metropolitan gobshites etc. Who will be desperately trying to put the fear of God into the British people, by means of the usual lies, distortions and fabricated ‘facts’. This one guaranteed to run on a TV, radio and in a newspaper near you. Brought to you by EUSSR productions.

Ralph Miliband on the English…

“The Englishman is a rabid nationalist. They are perhaps the most nationalist people in the world.”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
