Miller SpAd Tries to Dump MacLeod Post Interview/Text

That “source close to Maria Miller” is undertaking another round of her own particular brand of crisis management. The new suggestion is that Mary MacLeod – PPS to the Culture Secretary – was acting on her own back when she texted MPs asking them to support her boss while citing Leveson and appeared in a crash interview with Kay Burley on Sky News:

MacLeod was confronted on air with Guido’s text scoop and resorted to smears and innuendo about Miller’s kids, and claimed that Miller had been cleared on all counts. Which is just a blatant misspeak.

“She wasn’t acting under instruction” says Special Adviser Jo Hindley, adding mystically “lots of MPs have gone on the telly to support Maria”. Guido must have missed that.

Are we seriously expected to believe that MacLeod went out to bat via text and telly on a whim? Hindley has not replied when asked if her, or Maria, had spoken to MacLeod today.

Guido is just going flag up that he thinks this is BS.

      Miller won’t last long now.

      A brilliant interview though. We need someone like her again.

      She was talking about honour, not bringing parliament into disrepute, navel gazing etc all that is going wrong in Today’s parliament.

      To be honest a good start would be to dump Bercow,

        It’s the thing that if you oppose then the militant homosexuals will organise a twitter mob to see you thrown out of your job. And that’s just the start – re-eduction camps, prison sentences and – if the history of socialism is anything to go by – death are all things that may well be lined up for those who refuse to “modernise” and accept “equality” (i.e. the radical redefinition of the word marriage away from what it has meant for centuries).

        it s a PC euphemism for marriage of two people of the same gender .

        Which begs the legal question ;

        When one if them dies before the ither who is for pension etc. and other purposes designated as thw “widow” and whom the ” widower ” ?

        Will the “yardstick” be the one who earns the most /goes out to work or will the designation need to be proven by the specific ” minutiae ” of the sexual relationship?

        The latter would be somewhat orobkematical in an all-woman wedlock methinks …

      Sport can take care of itself – why should I fund people who run round in circles and jump into sandpits? Let them fund that themselves. Kids will still be able to go to the local park to kick a ball around, or the local swimming pool – and all without political interference.

      Culture? WTF does that mean? Watching/subsidising illegal immigrants to bang on dustbin lids? Local amateur dramatic groups seem to manage to fund their own private activities – again, all without political interference.

      Media? There are adequate laws to keep the media on their toes (in line?), so we do not need a fully fledged Quango to help them along.

      The whole operation is surplus to requirements and should be chucked overboard before the end of the month. Civil servants involved can go and find a job in the real world.

    Miller is a liar, smearer of the highest order and as for innuendo well she is playing a rather pathetic game to save her career in which she has no self confidence. This lack of confidence explains why she surrounds herself with MORONS. She & they are dragging her party down & backwards. This silly cow Miller is determined to remain with her snout in the trough to remind the electorate that self interested & destructive politicians still exist in the Tory Party.

    If she had any SELF RESPECT or an ounce of decency she would resign.

    If Cameron had any respect for the electorate he would inform her to sling her hook! This is going to stick to Cameron like shit, the longer he supports her. Some morons are just not worth defending, especially one who is self interested, arrogant & crap at her job!

    Ms Eagle with an expression like she had swallowed a bag of lemons quite unnecessarily elbowed her way through those quietly standing in the corridor muttering imprecations the while. She then had the gall to complain to one of the lads in blue who came along and solemnly lectured us about obstructing the progress of members. What an ungulate.
