Gordon's Revenge

Brown Nosing Murdoch

Rumours are swirling that Brown is about to break cover at some point and implicate other newspapers in this scandal. Crick has put his cards on the table:

Many suspect the glee with which Labour have taken to this fight has within it an element of Brownite revenge for the vicious kicking News International gave the Prime Mentalist on his way out the door and a kick in the shin to Blair who was closely allied to Murdoch. He may have sworn revenge, and it’s no surprise his close ally Tom Watson has been at the heart of this campaign, but can Brown really turn around now, with any shred of credibility, and pretend he wasn’t as enamored with the Sun King as his predecessor and successor? He certainly went out of his way to creep up to the empire.

Not only was Gordon creeping around James Murdoch whenever he got the chance (he was his guest at Chequers the weekend that the 2007 election was cancelled), but according to the “Ed” book, Rebekah Wade came up with one of his Miliband-destroying “no time for a novice” sound bites. One of the key ways he brown-nosed Murdoch and News International was by carefully deploying his more socially adept wife to do his bidding. Not content with organising dinners and Chequers slumber parties with Elizabeth and Wendi Murdoch, Sarah Brown actually organised Rebekah Brook’s fortieth birthday.

Yes you read that right.

Quote of the Day

Philip Hammond uses a trip to Berlin to mock the Foreign Secretary:

“A compromise is the art of dividing a cake in such a way that everyone believes he has the biggest piece. Wise words with some applicability to the Brexit negotiations although I try to discourage talk of “cake” amongst my colleagues.”
