Tony Grew Misses the Scoop of His Career

Last night’s Channel 4 News investigation found that young men working in parliament were more likely to be sexually harassed than women, and specifically that there were a group of gay MPs who preyed upon men in Westminster. Back in January Guido publicly tipped off one journalist to the story on Twitter, he didn’t want to investigate, instead PoliticsHome’s Tony Grew said the allegations were untrue:

Today the story is on the front pages of two newspapers, has been heavily followed up by the rest and is dominating the airwaves on 24 hour news channels and radio, yet gets only a fleeting mention on PoliticsHome. They should have a word with their Lobby correspondent about his news values…

      It is not very PC to suggest that homos are capable of sexual predatory behaviour too. That is supposed to be an exclusively white, straight male crime. Apparently it is now a sign of homophobia to suggest that the poofs can be guilty of sexual harasment too.

      Yeah great scoop, toilets, because up til now everyone thought wavy davy was a strong leader with total conviction.

          So did most of the media…that is until the results of the polls. In fact Norman Smith on BBC called both polls wrongly for Clegg and the look of amazed bafflement when the public supported Farage was something to behold

      This side of the story will be pushed gently aside by the mainstream media. They’ve no interest in exposing predatory gays.

      The shrill, shrieking harridan Cathy Newman only ever take sup this issue to push her extreme feminist ideas and obsession with imposing quotas into every aspect of life. She doesn’t actually care about the issue when it doesn’t serve her feminist fantasy.

        krakka toe says:

        “shrill shrieking harridan” is the most accurate description I’ve yet seen of Nemman. How is it people like her are so well connected that she gets a job at the Telegraph, basically writing the same article every few days whingeing about the number of women is some profession. Or demanding the working class people pay taxes for her to have a free nanny.

        The left are good at this – their activists are willing to spend a career pretending to be a journalist, just amazing that a once-proud paper like the telegraph lets her use its good name pushing her mad ideas.

    Cameron didn’t just make the wrong call of the expenses fiddler. He’s built up a record as long as his arm for bungling decisions.

    The most arrogant tenant of Downing Street for many a decade squeezed growth out of the economy with austerity tax rises and spending cuts.

    His expensive drive to privatise the NHS will cost lives.

    And Britain would be fighting a bloody war in Syria if Labour’s Ed Miliband and Tory rebels hadn’t halted the wannabe warlord.

    Miller is a symbol of deeper problem: Cameron might think he was born to rule but he’s a terrible ruler.

      Norman Normal says:

      There have been predatory groups of homosexuals in the Catholic Church for centuries. The Pope even apologised for it today.

      Why is it a such a problem to accept the possibility that such groups exist in other organisations?

      It’s not homophobic at all to suggest such a thing when there is a mountain of evidence that proves it has happened before.

      One reason I am in favour of gay marriage is it may reduce this behaviour if homosexuals are bound by some means to a stable relationship.

    Two local toothless hillbillies were today cleared of sexually assaulting a fat man on a canoe holiday and making him squeal like a pig before sodomising him. The jury dismissed the charges based on lack of corroborating evidence. Friends of the hillbillies say the district attorney has questions to answer for pursuing the case and accuse the authorities of hillbillyphobia.

          Norman Normal says:

          I saw that, someone was suggesting that ‘male values’ persist in boardrooms untill female membership reaches 33%.

          What’s ‘male values’? It was said as if all males have a sort of inbuilt evil philosophy that can only be curbed by women.

          Firstly isn’t that blatently sexist? What evidence is there of this? None at all given so I conclude it’s utter bollocks.

    The funniest part of QT last night was seeing Savid Javid sink lower and lower into his seat as Dimbleby quizzed him about his “no housing bubble in London” blunder.

    Nicolas Robinson, 23, of Borough, south-east London, carried out the “opportunistic” theft at a Lidl supermarket in Brixton as he walked home from his girlfriend’s house.

    Culture secutary steels thousands from the tax payer and gets let off and a leaving payment and is still in her job as MP for Basingstoke.

    And the Prime Minister doesn’t think she ,s done any thing wrong.

      The most amusing claim ever says:

      You may well have a point but the difference is that Miller did not break any rules at the time of the claim prior to 2009 and also did not commit any criminal offence. However anyone daft enough to engage in such acts of theft in the Capital after the 2012 London Riots is inevitably a looking at a custodial sentence. It’s the two legal maxims “pour encourager les Autres” in relation to the “poor” and the other is “Let ‘em eat cake” when it comes to politicians

    So we were all wondering why on earth MPs were in such an all fired rush to legalise gay marriage. Not really, it’s not like this hasn’t been the case for a long time. Gays sneaking around, they’re as bad as freemasons… what am I saying, at least freemasons just get you to lift your trouser leg… gays are far more intrusive… make sodomy illegal I say… all of these gays that are out won’t have anywhere to run then, bang them up in proson where they can all enjoy themselves together…

    Remember the good old days when pervert MPs and their friends in The Lords had to scour St. James’ park for an off-duty guardsman or visit the public toilets in Charing Cross or pop down to the Salvation Army hostel in Great Peter Street (all conveniently located for Westminster)? Back then they had to spend the price of a pint or a night’s lodgings out of their own pockets–now they get bright young, ready-washed Spads and put it on expenses.
    West End Central Police Station used to keep a “Black book” recording the activities of the Tinkerbelles and kiddy-fiddlers, which the Chief Commissioner of the day no doubt used to good effect. One wonders what records are kept today and what use they are put to.

    When so-called ‘journalists’ decline to investigate good stories in a work place they are ‘embedded in’ one can only assume it is because they are implicated themselves.

    So is the gist of this that many SPADS are just young meat for MPs who effectively pay for their services out of the public purse ?
