Another Innocent Politician Accused on Newsnight

In their defence, this one was hardly their fault. On last night’s programme, Neil Hamilton accused a former Labour MP of being into kinky sex. Neil Hamilton being Neil Hamilton, he got the wrong one, and Newsnight have now apologised:

“In a live Newsnight interview about party whips’ knowledge of MPs’ personal secrets tonight, former Tory whip Neil Hamilton referred to a former Labour MP, now dead, who he said had been known to visit “bondage and sado masochism clubs and behaved in the most outrageous way.” 

Mr Hamilton incorrectly named the MP as Allan Rogers, who is former MP for the Rhondda. Mr Hamilton says he meant to refer to another former MP, now dead. Mr Hamilton said: “I apologise unreservedly to Allan Rogers. It was an inadvertent slip of the tongue.” Newsnight also apologises to Mr Rogers.”

Whoops!

    Wonder if this new inquiry will investigate if Thatcher was ever told anything of her good friend, Mr J Saville?

    I am guessing that it will be another whitewash and senior politicians (of all parties, it can’t just be a Tory thing) will get away it again.

    He probably meant Allan Roberts, MP for Bootle and one of the leaders of the early campaign for gay rights back in the days before Stonewall (the riot, in 1968, not the more recent campaign group of Blairite origin). I suspect the usual lazy conflation of “gay and “pervert” is at work here…. a conflation not to anyone’s credit. “Behaving outrageously” means, I take it, “not being appropriately ashamed of being gay and making the outrageous assumption that he’s as good as me, a married man.”

    I appreciate that gay-tolerant comments here are a waste of time, but one must try….

    Pity then that he’s no longer under the Tory Whip. I don’t suppose UKIP’s system is anywhere near as ‘sophisticated’.

    Neil Hamilton says:

    Yes, I’m very sorry for my inadvertent slip of the tongue on live TV. I didn’t realise until I left the set that I had said ‘Allan Rogers’ when I meant ‘Allan Roberts’.

    Allan Rogers was a very decent MP and we were good friends despite being political opponents. Anyone who knows Allan would realise that I could not have been referrring to him – for a start, I said that the Labour MP concerned was now dead. More importantly, Allan Rogers has an impeccable reputation and I deeply regret any embarrassment my unintentional slip may have caused.

    In 1981, Labour MP Allan Roberts visited Berlin’s Buddy Club. A witness claims Allan was approached by a man clad in an SS uniform. “Name,” he demanded. “Allan,” said Allan. “Nein,” said the German. “It is Rover.” He then attached a lead to Allen’s studded dog collar and whipped him before a baying crowd.

    yeah … but who was the REAL alleged perp MP ?

    Could someone please name him(her?) in the House under Parliamentary immunity ( unless this one s pushing up daisies as well in which case qu’est que c’est le probleme?)

    Nah, he probably likes the fact that someone can remember him, because I bloody can’t.

    Allan is actually my dad who is a decent man and was absolutely horrified to be talked about in this way but in fairness Neil has duly apologised.

    “Name,” he demanded. “Allan,” said Allan. “Nein,” said the German. “It is Rover.”

    So his prop shaft would have gone before too long and he’s have needed a lot of interference between services.

    I wish someone like Guido would label these perverts with another word instead of Gay. It appears that most of them are devious rather than gay.

    if it’s same sex abuse it should be called out as such. Gay ped o ph ilia it is. If a dis proportionate amount of ped o p ilia is of this type then it should be called out and challenged. Anything less would be a cover up.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
