Maguire Missed the Scoop Under His Nose

Guido’s Westminster Arms drinking buddy, Kevin Maguire, is kind enough to shower praise on “an old-fashioned scoop for the newish media. So hat’s off to my old mate Guided Fawkes. And I admire his ability to spin himself as well as his story.”

Guided?  Only one of us has been guided by Damian McBride’s spin.  Funny thing is, Maguire could have had the front page scoop himself.  After all – despite today’s disingenuous spin from Liam Byrne* that this was a private matter between only Damian and Derek – Maguire was very much in the know.  He could have had the scoop about “Red Rag” himself, months ago.  Guido has been calling Maguire all evening to ask him why he didn’t run the scoop himself, or why didn’t he advise his mate Damian against the whole idea?  What a scoop Kevin could have there, eh?

Strangely Kev isn’t taking calls from Guido or any of his Lobby friends.  When Guido texted our Kev a few questions, someone else called back claiming that he had a missed call from Guido.  James Lyons, Kevin’s Mirror mate was the caller.  Odd.

Still, no doubt some of Kevin’s fellow Lobby journalists, ruthless investigators that they are, will get the facts from Maguire. When did he know?  What did he know? Isn’t that what proper journalists are supposed to ask?

*Liam Byrne is not very polite is he?  We already know he is a shit to work for, however when Guido said a cheery “hello Liam” to him in the Sky studio yesterday he just stood there and stared at yours truly, silently, (a bit weirdly to be honest).  Maybe his morning soup was cold.
