No. I have got Bindmans on to the mockers. Iain Dale (filthy homophobe) he got a letter. He took it down. Ros Taylor at the Guardian, they got a letter and they have taken it down. No, no, no. Who is mocking now? Frightened of me all of them. Nobody is going to write spoof diaries about me and get away with it. I am Chris Bryant.
An easy mistake to make because Chris Bryant is beyond satire. Bryant threatened to sue Iain and demanded that his legal bills were paid for sending him a characteristically pompous threatening letter. Iain told him not to be silly and get lost – it was an innocent mistake. Bryant is now sulking.
He’s been none too popular, and this has affected even the family relations and been embarrassing for them. Watson’s sister-in-law Joanna Watson works in the same building (just next door to his office) for West Midlands Labour MEP ultra loyalist and NEC member Michael Cashman, and Watson’s younger brother Dan works part time for neighbouring MP and Social Exclusion Minister Pat Mcfadden, another ultra-loyalist and ex-Number 10 spin doctor. Watson has angered a good many people in his region, and it hasn’t further helped good relations that he was overheard telling senior party officials in his constituency recently that he expects “to be back in government” after Gordon takes over in the summer. Which is a shame because his blog has improved greatly since he has had more time on his hands.
Gordon wouldn’t reward the treachery that he has publicly disavowed advance knowledge of and claimed he would have advised against. Would he?
Still it will give him even more time to webmong about the place surfing political websites, like he did yesterday, when he amazingly discovered the advance publication of the Tory Tax Commission’s report. He’ll be posting on this blog next, like Dave Miliband does, maybe he does already?
As reported here yesterday, it is official today:
“Madeleine Bunting has decided to resign as Director of Demos. Since it has emerged that her vision for Demos is incompatible with that of the trustees.”
A star is born – Jayne Godley.
And this is how he should have done it, funkier and not so twatty.
The voice-over is so good, you have to wonder – did Blair do it himself?
Tom Watson has now apologised.
I did post the video to you tube and I take responsibility for that. The aim was satire. Colleagues and newspapers thought it was rude. On reflection, they were right.
So, if anyone is upset – including David Cameron – I unreservedly apologise.
UPDATE :Sion has taken the video down off YouTube. The Simon/Watson duo are the Scud missiles of politics. They target Blair with their resignations and end up damaging Brown. So now with time on their hands they launch a new media video attack on Cameron and end up apologising to Dave and driving traffic to WebCameron up tenfold. Doh!
UPDATE II : Sorry Sion, nothing is deleted from the web. It is back up here on YouTube in full twat-o-vision courtesy once again of Biased BBC.
Labour MP Stephen Pound told the BBC that Sion’s video was “a new low in British politics”. Jack Straw, the Leader of the Commons, bitch-slapped Sion thus: “We have to ensure that political discourse is at a reasonable high level that avoids personal attacks.”
The line that gives most offense is “Want to sleep with my wife? That’s cool. Come down, check it out, we’ll sort it out. Safe. I’ve got two kids, kid one, kid two. You like them? Take one; that’s cool.”
