Labour Claims Austin Mitchell Has Apologised, He Says Not
Veteran MP Stands Firm Over Calling Pfizer “Rapists”

Austin Mitchell is unapologetic, saying he accidentally wrote “rapists” instead of “rapaciousness”.

But “roll up rapaciousness” makes no sense. What is it with MPs called Mitchell coming up with less than credible excuses?

He has told the Huffington Post that he has no regrets about using the word:

“He explained that he used the term “rapists” as he was referring to the rape “of a company”, warning that their prospective takeover of AstraZeneca would see a “dismantling of a company and the loss of jobs”.

“I don’t know why they want to defend the company. They object to the word so I’ll substitute rapaciousness – as they are a rapacious company.”

Asked if he had any regrets for using the word “rapists”, he replied: “No.””

Yet, a Labour spokesman tells Guido:

“The Chief Whip has made it clear to Austin Mitchell this tweet was unacceptable. He has now apologised for an obvious error of judgement.”

Where is this apology then?

UPDATE: Nicky Morgan, Minister for Women weighs in:

‘It is wholly inappropriate to use rape to make a political point in this way. Ed Miliband needs to show some leadership. He should make it clear to Austin Mitchell that this vile comment is unacceptable and demand an apology immediately.’

UPDATE II: Mitchell speaks to Grimsby Telegraph“Those wanting me to quit are daft and are too sensitive on the issue.”


UPDATE IV: Nicky Morgan has written to Ed Miliband:

“People across the whole country will be appalled that anybody would try to link a proposed corporate takeover with the horrific crime of rape. I am sure you will agree with me that such a comparison is deeply offensive as it trivialises sex attacks and the horrific and traumatising effects such attacks can have on victims. I am clear that these comments are totally unacceptable and that Austin Mitchell must withdraw what he has written immediately and issue a full, unreserved apology. As the Leader of the Labour Party I look forward to hearing what action you intend to take in response to this totally unacceptable behaviour.”

UPDATE V:  He won’t stop. Mitchell tells the Guardian“I’m not going to apologise, don’t be silly. What about people who talk about the rape of the countryside – do they have to apologise?”

    R*****t is a word used in a specific context. He has no clue about how to use the word and complains that he is being attacked by Pfizer defenders – it’s him who needs to defend himself about his provocative choice of word here.

    C O (Ξ7s1) says:

    From the dictionary – some definitions of r’ape:


    i) an act of plunder, violent seizure, or abuse; despoliation; violation: the r’ape of the countryside.
    ii) Archaic. the act of seizing and carrying off by force.


    iii) to plunder (a place); despoil.
    iv) to seize, take, or carry off by force.

    A r’apist is one who commits an act of r’ape.

    The remark as made is fine as the context in no way suggests anything sexual, or implies that statutory laws have been broken.

    That the women and others immediately read the phrase with sexual connotations is perhaps more relevant for F’reud.

    This is not to defend A’ustin, but to defend the right to use the English language.

    I do not think the femin!sts need lose any faith, as all they need to do is point out that the Tory’s are devaluing the more commonly known meaning of the word by confusing it with this lesser meaning.

    It is only a small step to go from that reasoning to a counter-attack that the female MPs complaining are not helping the cause of women etc.

    As a corporate defamation the original wording of the T’weet is also safe as A’ustin does not directly name P’fizer as being r’apists.

    David Cameron has done that.

    C O (Ξ7s1) says:

    The ‘apology’ works against A’ustin.

    But, in the ‘r’apacious’ T’weet he is speaking about Physer not Pfizer.

    That is a totally separate entity – it is not clear what he is referring to at all, hence the T’weet is gibberish.

    Inferring that the second T’weet is an apology for the original is stretching it a bit. If A’ustin does apologize for that he opens up a libel liability. The way it is worded, the ‘r’apists’ are not specifically identified, and from context it is so broadly applied that it does appear to refer to the US as a whole.

    Not a nice thing to say about a country which is a key strategic ally and trading partner who the UK shares a trusted relationship and long history with.

    Does A’ustin’s T’weet reflect a change in position towards the US of the Labour party ? That would have profound foreign policy implications among others.

    Questioning that way would also demonstrate professional mature journalism, and help place Labour into a safer spot where they can be politically attacked :-)

    Have followed that case – am not sure how exactly it is going to be implemented.

    Regarding G’oogle as a publisher the ruling directly contravenes the US 1st Amendment, so USG cannot compel them to comply. It will also go down badly in the US.

    Guessing G’oogle will adopt a voluntary code for individuals only, and give the EU the finger if it complains. The EU has most to lose if G’oogle vacates particularly as G’oogle’s online translation is perhaps the single most useful tech development for helping integration of EU states.

    For individuals, being able to apply to remove certain material from G’oogle’s cache should be available. The case which was raised and succeeded is very relevant to that.

    If they are going to seek the right to start screwing with etc. then there is a real problem.

    So long as the archives remain autonomous there is not much to worry about. But this type of ruling whilst right in principal is wrong as there is no trust that it will be implemented responsibly.

    Real Conservatives vote UKIP says:

    This tale’s about three monstrous pricks
    There’s one called Dave and one named Nick;
    The third is David – whoops, ’tis Ed –
    Whiche’er, he’s space inside his head.

    Now, Dave is used to Eton cliques,
    Is ne’er at home out in the sticks;
    “In it together” he does say.
    Do folk believe him ? No, no way !

    Dave chose to redefine your ‘marriage’,
    Some say he has no undercarriage;
    Truth is what he dare not mention,
    Thinking only of his pension.

    Nick is not strange to dirty tricks,
    His party toadies prey on chicks;
    “When was I told ? My mental block
    Stops me recalling Handycock.

    LibDems should always pointless be
    ’cos they’d distract from li’l ol’ me
    A cockroach in a coalition
    Suits me just fine, not abolition.”

    As for Ed, he’s no idea :
    “How can I make my message clear ?
    I know – they’ll show me some respect,
    I’ll wow them with my intellect.”

    Bud Ed is on a different plane,
    It’s far beneath him to explain
    How he looks down on lesser mortals
    Who can’t see – you have to chortle !

    Just stop and analyse their tricks
    And see their members in the nick;
    ’tis plain that they care not one jot,
    They’re troughers all – let’s stop the rot.

    Each one of them’s a proven liar,
    That smoke is from their pants afire;
    They’re on the run – be of good cheer –
    They stoop so low UKIP to smear.

    The voters look from Nick to Dave,
    from Dave to Ed, from Ed to Nick;
    “Is any of them not depraved ?
    Should any box for them be ticked ?”

    The answer’s no, tick not their boxes,
    They’re tricksters, worse than sly old foxes;
    Vote UKIP, that’s the one sane ticket,
    The rest all break the rules of cricket.

    So if you want your country back
    You mustn’t cut them any slack;
    These monstrous pricks will have your shirt –
    Kick each of them hard where it hurts !

    It seems to have been argued on a very one-sided basis and overemphasising the role of private data, a good concept until the hand is overplayed, as here.

    Consider a report made in the Times or Telegraph in say 1995. Is the court going to find that, given the same circumstances, the current proprietors of these papers must locate every copy of that paper which exists on the face of the planet, maybe in public libraries or in private homes, and excise such articles?

    But then imagine someone scans the entire contents of such paper and posts it to the web at some point in the future. Are they going to be in breach of the court ruling by so doing?

    C O (Ξ7s1) says:

    The ruling relates to results appearing in the search engine, and data which is held on search engine servers.

    This could be enforceable against servers within the EU, assuming all 28 member states ratify the ruling allowing it to be drafted into EU law. But G’oogle’s distributed nature means that search results will be coming in from servers located outside the EU jurisdiction as well as within.

    What that means is that whilst the ruling would allow links, and other data harvested by search engines to be removed from their servers within the EU, and links blocked from searches initiated against EU based search engine servers, it will not prevent the links being retrieved from elsewhere on the same platform.

    It will mean that for full searches one needs to search on G’oogle via a US proxy, a standard task these days to defeat EU member state government blocks on search results and site access which currently exist.

    This is really a corporate decision for G’oogle.

    They should offer the service for cases such as the one brought before the ECJ. Dealing with this legislatively is going to prove unworkable.

    Any legislation which does get passed would be forcing G’oogle’s European operations into a form of regulation, which Brussels has been pushing for, and which has been rightly resisted.

    This type of regulation attempt will run into problems with some parts of the UN Charter of Human Rights, for starters. :-)

    Labour Claims Austin
    Mitchell Has Apologised,
    He Says Not?

    But Austin is a senile auld stunt. He does not know his arse from elbow. He poos himself 3 times a day. Labour do not have the heart to tell him to fuck off. One minute he thinks he is starring in an Austin Powers movie and now he thinks he is being chased by a gigantic care bear.

    The guy is seriously off the planet and needs Pfizer to come up with a cure for his senility.

    Oh Gawd he now thinks he is Doris Day!

    I don’t understand, Pfizer ARE going to rape AstroZenica, aren’t they?? Buy it over, avoid/evade all taxes, close everything except the head office, selling anything that can’t compete with them and do it all over again. Although put like that, sounds more like murder than rape..

    It is American and means rolling everything up into a large ball so it can be discarded in due course. In English we would probably use ‘hoovering up’ or ‘vacuuming’ everything up – ie thereafter leaving nothing left of what used to be there.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
