The Backlash Begins

Watch all the Dead Tree Press journalists who have felt the sting from this blog start carping:

Janet Daley, the former mega-fan of Gordon (see The Sheep With The Wool Pulled Over Her Eyes), is doing daily whines about Guido in the TelegraphNow that wouldn’t be anything to do with the teasing she has got on this blog, would it?

Stephen Pollard, the former wonkish lobbyist for Pfizer, complains  in The Times that Guido pointed out he took money from people from whom he took money.  He claims that is libel.  Guido never claimed he took money from McDonalds for his fake “think-tank”.   However he actually did spend years writing articles in praise of Big Pharma’s profits.  Pfizer was the main funder of his now defunct “think-tank”.

Stephen Pound MP has changed his studio soundbite today from saying Guido “is laughing all the way to the bank*”.  That would be the same Stephen Pound who will get a cab to Sky’s Osterley studio at any hour to provide a rent-a-quote for £50.  He now says Guido is Popbitch with a blue rosetteLeave Guido’s mother out of it Pound…

*Despite what you might have read in the source revealing, confidence breaking, Downing Street tipping-off Telegraph, Guido did not take a penny from either the Sunday Times or the News of the World for their front page stories.

So Gordon, About this Letter…

Damian McPoisonGordon has announced he is going to write letters to all those smeared in emails from Damian McBride.  Good, remember how this all started; McBride emailed Draper a text-sketch on how to smear Iain Dale as a racist.  A week later on Friday, February 13, he emailed Draper again with the ammunition to smear Guido as a racist too.  Alas we were not to get the more exotic dildo/vibrator fantasy stories he concocted for Tory MPs.

McBride smeared Dale and Guido by email via Draper’s website.  Derek having  lied about this, has belatedly admitted the truth, having denied it repeatedly live on TV to myself and Andrew Neil.

I will frame Gordon’s letter of regret for what McBride did.  He is going to send one, isn’t he?

UPDATE : BBC reporting Brown has written letters of regret to those smeared.

Guido Confesses

The New Statesman’s James Macintyre, a regular lunching companion of Derek Draper, has just rung up to ask some stupid questions.  One line of questioning was jaw-droppingly bizarre:

JM : Do you deny having links to the intelligence services?
GF : Errrm [bemused pause]. Do you know the name of the Israeli secret intelligence service?
JM : Mossad?
GF :  They are supposed to be the best in the world.
JM : Yes.
GF : Do you know the name of the Irish secret intelligence service?
JM : No.
GF : So why do you think Mossad are better?
JM : Right, but do you deny having links to intelligence services?
GF : You got me, I am agent 003 1/2 of the Irish intelligence service.  You are a total hoon* Macintyre.

It ended up in a shouting match.

UPDATE : Had Macintyre on the phone again. He says this is not accurate.  This bit of the conversation was only a small part of the conversation.  He, to be fair, actually tried 50 ways of asking the same stupid question for the most part.  He says that it was just being juvenile (really).  He also wants to make it clear that it was Guido who called him a hoon* and that could I stop mentioning he is a lunching partner of Derek Draper.  This clarification is to stop his whining.

*Euphemism employed.

A Very Happy Birthday

The Progressive Vision think-tank sends out a daily email which includes a “today in history” section which today reminds that

13 April 1570:   Guy Fawkes is born.

Guido has already had his present…

+++ Nadine on GMTV : Smears Did Reach National Press +++

Nadine DorriesNadine Dorries MP has just told GMTV that she was called last year by journalists seeking to substantiate the smears against her.  She believes that because the press would not run the stories McBride and Draper set-up the Red Rag blog.

+++ Draper Lunched Brown Week After Setting Up “Red Rag” +++

Derek Draper’s “Red Rag” anonymous smear site was registered on November 4, 2008 according to publicly available records.  Draper had lunch at Chequers with Gordon Brown on Sunday 16, November 2008.

Guardian Front PageBrown recalled Draper to aid the  Labour Party, Draper boasted to many people that he was helping Gordon Brown.  Did he not discuss with Brown what he was doing for him?  Was Damian McBride also at the same Chequers lunch? 

Are we supposed to believe that the subject of Draper’s online battle plans was never discussed with the PM?

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!
