Treasury Issue Leadsom “Liability” Denial

On the email that is meant to have been sent to Rupert Harrison, a Treasury spokesman says:

“This is not true. No such email was ever received. We don’t know where this came from – but it’s not genuine.”

al-no-hs2The “money-quote” denied was allegedly in an email to Rupert Harrison “I told you she’s a liability – humiliating George two weeks in. Might break Laws’ record..  Let’s kill it, but she doesn’t get to abstain. Agreed?”.

The authenticity of the rest of the email exchanges published are not questioned by the Treasury. Guido can’t definitively prove that the email was received by Rupert Harrison.

    “The authenticity… are not questioned” ???

    English is supposed to be such a simple language that even the thick-as-pigshit English can speak it.

    Why Dave?
    Why do you insist on going against public opinion.

    We had enough of “it’s the right thing to do” from the captain of wrong and his criminal party.
    We don’t want anymore.

    I’ve a feeling he’s not going to listen to me or Lynton until the crushing defeat at the euros is confirmed. Then, maybe. Once the boat is irreversibly holed he’ll ask, “anyone got any ideas?”

    Hate filled, racist, misogonistic, deranged, psychotic and lazy, troughing UKIP candidate says:

    Meanwhile on radio five labour, the Marxist ‘comedian’ Mark Steel is on Richard, ‘self absorbed, smug, vacuous, cu’nt gobshyte’ Bacon’s show, and their news headline is ‘the Government says the new job seekers regulations are not about punishing the long term jobless’

    I am thinking some deeply disturbed thoughts about those who are employed by the bbc

      To be fair, Mark Steel is a proper lefty comedian. Long time communist socialist from back in the days when it was compulsory to be a lefty to get a comedy slot.
      And he has always believed in the socialist dream. It’s not an act to get on the beeb.

      And he attacked new labour as much as old Tory. His joke about Blair was world class.

      “Education education education.” The only Way that political lie could have been more untrue would be if Thatcher had stood for election promising ” mining, mining, mining!”

Damian McBride writes in the epilogue to his memoir…

“At the time of writing, nine months from the election, I’ve concluded that Labour currently has no positive messages to communicate to anyone about why they should vote for the party, no policies which will persuade them, and is being run in a totally dysfunctional way.”
