Damian McBride Leaves Cafod

Penance is up. Damian McBride left Catholic aid charity Cafod two weeks ago and has spend some time working on the paperback version of his memoirs, amongst other writing projects. So expect more helpful blog interventions…

Wondering what he might do next, Guido asked Mad Dog if he was off to spin for the Yvette for Leader campaign. He laughed, heartily…

        If only the cartoon were true says:

        It would if McBride’s head was really a bomb and it actually exploded.

        Politics across the board in Parliament is a “world-wide laughing stock”.

        It is a daily Circus of chancers and low-lifes – all of them believing their own cognitive dissonance B/Shit that they are a truly Great Parliament – fit for purpose in the 21st century.

        Oh dear.

          Time for your walk!


          • I d say three Hail Mary s and a Glory Be
            If Cafod could get me in The Holy See
            But The Pope s no Numpty
            And he does nae want me
            So I m resigned to spinning for Eddie B


          • EeeYepBlowing Whistles says:

            Is that the best a political journo troll can come up with to protect his mates with.

            You’re fired Troll – get the F outta here.

    EeeYepBlowing Whistles says:

    McBride – you are all referred to the Paxo interview with McBride on the BBC – where McBride invited the public to press criminal charges against him.

    How deeply deeply corrupted are the MET?

      i won’t bother rebuking them two at 5:03 and 5:22 pm – they are the trolls that just keep giving. Keep it up laddettes.

    Mel Gibsons left nut says:

    McBride and Blair both welcomed into the Catholic fold.
    That says a lot about all of them.

    Cato Street Conspirator says:

    This was in the Guardian Diary earlier in the week. Don’t tell me Guido now follows the absurd Hugh Muir.


  6. 10
    Here's another smear for you says:

    Which female minister did McPoison “climb off” after a drunken reception?

    Mo Mowlam 2/1
    Clare short 11/10
    Yvette Cooper 15/1
    Tess Jowell 9/2
    Hattie Harman 8/1

    Rickytshirt says:

    Far be it for those who are embroiled in scandals to retreat gracefully from public life. Why do they feel the need to impose themselves on the rest of us? Go away, you’ve been found wanting, we don’t want you. Oh well, let’s hope he hastens the demise of the Labour Party.

      EeeYepBlowing Whistles says:

      Like CCHQ – are NOW USING info which i have put out time and again – JFHC and what else do i possess about Dugher which they have “known about” – but remained “silent about” – because they were too busy ‘romancing Rupert’?

      Desperado / last chance saloon Hypocrites!

    The Wild Colonial Boy says:

    Isn’t that the head of I-knock Powell (of blessed memory) in the cartoon?

    Bill Quango MP says:

    Damien McBride would make a good communications director when one of the Balls becomes leader.

    Bringing the criminal into the very dark heart of the Labour government.
    Where he belongs.

    And will be appreciated.

    Bosun Higgs says:

    I think Damian could make a good career by taking a female pen-name and writing shopping-and-shagging chick-lit. He’s got the talent and the experience.

    McPrick face says:

    I’m coming to get you.
    You know who you are.

    The big Bridie has a few in his sights I am sure. I would not want to mess with him.

Rob Colvile reviews Russell Brand’s new book:

“Oddly, the person I feel sorriest for isn’t Brand himself – although he certainly comes across as a rather pitiable figure, projecting his own brokenness on to the world around him – but Johann Hari. Drummed out of Fleet Street for plagiarism, the former Independent columnist has washed up as “my mate Johann, who’s been doing research for this book”. For a genuinely talented polemicist, it would have been a humbling experience to have to treat this sub-undergraduate dross as the scintillating wisdom of a philosopher-king.”

Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
