    We are going to have to insist that Whitehall is immediately renamed Blackhall. That goes for Whitechapel and Whitehaven as well – disgusting! and especially the Isle of Wight.

    We are sad to learn that the round orange fruit known as oranges are called oranges and not blacks. We feel that to call them oranges discriminates against all the other perfectly acceptable colours of the rainbow and this is completely unacceptable in today’s diverse Britain. Rest assured we will be making an official complaint.

    Furthermore we would like to add that we feel HP’s “Brown Sauce” is deeply discriminatory against minorities because it draws attention to their race at the expense of their other qualities. We are campaigning for a full public apology and to get this product BANNED permanently.

    So Here We Have It says:

    “I have said very clearly that if it turns out that Andy Coulson knew about the hacking at the News of the World, he will not only have lied to me, but he will have lied to the police, a select committee and the Press Complaints Commission, and of course perjured himself in a court of law. More to the point, if that comes to pass, he could also expect to face severe criminal charges.

    I have an old-fashioned view about innocent until proven guilty. But if it turns out I have been lied to, that would be the moment for a profound apology. In that event, I can tell you I will not fall short.

    My responsibilities are for hiring him, and for the work he did at Downing Street.”

  54. 54
    Screaming Hack says:

    Racist London jury! They only convicted Andy because he is an underprivileged white man from a broken home?

    Or has anyone been gingerist yet? Perhaps a mention of ‘rooibos tea’?

    OK so can we now extend the same level of scrutiny to the left-wing press – Piers Morgan hacking phones and the Guardian hacking Jonathan Ailken’s fax machine.

    The problem Mr Coulson, is that you were merely an employee, not a close, personal friend, unlike Rebekha.

    As far as Downing Street is concerned, one may ‘f**k the staff’, and you were merely staff, you see.

    I can’t help you any more Im afraid because what with my fees, her QC’s fees and ‘donations’ to gullible members of the Jury, Ruppie’s contributions have dried up.

    Do contact me if you can afford to appeal…….

    Mycroft says:

    The upper echelons of the Met are as corrupt as many of those they are meant to investigate.

    The average Met cop is quite a chippy little grudge holder, but the ‘attitude’ comes from the fact that many know that the higher you go the greater the likelihood of a decent bung.

    Of course she knew they paid cops, journalists pay cops all the time, it may not be money that changes hands, often it will be a job/consultant offer that is paid.

    The cops involved in the Plebgate farce probably didn’t pass on info for money, they did it to gain an ‘in’ to a future financial pay off.

    That is how it starts and because it grows finally the web of deceit is so enmeshed around them all that even extreme wrong-doing is swept under the carpet.

    Her acquittal is interesting and may yet prove to be a greater disaster in the future, something will ‘come out’ in the years ahead that will cause her and the Murdoch Empire an even bigger headache.

    The natural corollary of corruption is that all parties involved are corrupt and they can’t stop being so, there is a dark soul out there who will fall short of cash enough to turn on a previous ‘friend’.

    Slowly slowly catchy Orang Utan, as the saying goes or might be corrupted to say.

    I would suggest that despite the acquittal she and a few others are a constant and terrifying liability.

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.”
