Watson on Mosley

Tom Watson on accepting £500,000 in donations from former fascist Max Mosley:

“I’m proud to call Max Mosley a friend and I’m delighted he has made a financial contribution”

Mosley Gives Watson Half a Million

Max Mosley has given Tom Watson another £300,000, meaning Labour’s deputy leader has accepted £500,000 in donations from Max in the last eight months. Imagine what Labour would say if a Cabinet minister had taken half a million quid from a former black-shirt who once punched a policeman in the face at a fascist rally…

Guido’s Impress File on the Sunday Politics

Max Mosley gets Brillo’d as MediaGuido’s Impress File is read out to him on the Sunday Politics. Read it in full here. Mosley also confirmed the money being used to fund Impress comes from his father Oswald, refused to defend the comments made by Impress board members and admitted newspapers were unlikely to ever sign up. Hope Karen Bradley was watching as Mosley’s arguments for Impress and Section 40 were comprehensively dismantled…

Max Mosley Punches Policeman at Fascist Rally

MediaGuido has found footage of a black-shirted Max Mosley punching a policeman in the face at a fascist rally in the British Pathe news archive. The Impress bankroller, who don’t forget has also donated £200,000 to Tom Watson, was filmed in a 1962 news reel taking part in a violent brawl between his fellow fascists and the police. Now he claims to be a freedom loving philanthropist….

In the news reel above, Mosley clearly throws a flurry of right hooks, connecting with a police officer’s face. The newsreader said: “Sir Oswald’s son Max was among those later arrested”. This is the man behind the new state regulator seeking to gag the British press…

Max Mosley’s Demand to “End Coloured Immigration”

Why does Impress funder Max Mosley want to gag the press? So they are prevented from publishing stories like this in today’s Sun, revealing Mosley once wrote a letter demanding an end to “coloured immigration” and defending his fascist father.

His opinion of “the Jew” is a nice touch too. How can Impress take £4 million from a man with such views? And why has the government given them state recognition?

UPDATE: Worth remembering that Spanky Max gave Tom Watson a £200,000 donation.  Strange alliance…

Just 4% Public Support for Mosley’s Impress

Max Mosley was on the radio yesterday promoting his pet press regulator Impress, pledging more cash on top of the £4 million he has already spent bankrolling his vindictive revenge project. Today a YouGov poll finds just 4% of the public support a media watchdog funded by “rich and powerful” trusts like Mosley’s Impress. 49% say any press regulator should be funded by the press itself, rather than a millionaire with a vendetta. Somewhat outside the margin of error. Read WikiGuido on how Section 40 will gag the next expenses scandal, and why the Impress regulator is unfit for purpose here

Max Mosley’s Today Programme Porkies

This morning Impress bankroller and spanker-in-chief Max Mosley appeared on the Today programme to claim the regulator is “completely independent of me”. Untrue: Mosley has donated £4 million to Impress. It wouldn’t exist without him.

Mosley explained the sinister Section 40 measure:

“If a newspaper refuses to belong to a recognised regulator then of course if it’s taken to court it will end up paying both sides.”

That “recognised regulator” would be Mosley’s own Impress, which due to its public pronouncements ranting bile and invective against newspapers and journalists, no mainstream newspaper will join. Impress and Section 40 would have newspapers bankrupted by corrupt MPs, dodgy traders, and c-list celebs pursuing vexatious cases free-of-charge…

Cheap and accessible out-of-court arbitration is already available through a pilot-scheme run by current regulator IPSO, a key Leveson recommendation implemented. IPSO also has the power to fine newspapers up to £1 million through its parallel complaints and mediation process, force them to print its adjudications and dictate the wording of corrections. Mosley then stoked calls for Leveson II:

“It’s no good pretending a few criminal trials revealed what was really going on, it didn’t.”

By “a few criminal trials” Mosley means jack-booted probe Operation Elveden, the failed crusade against popular newspapers. Elveden coppers dragged 34 innocent journalists from their beds at dawn to the dock without resulting in a single conviction, costing the taxpayer £15 million. Mosley’s Today interview was as honest as his regulator is impartial…

State-Backed Press Regulator Wants to Ban Daily Mail

Impress is the Max Mosley-funded, state-backed press regulator. Having secured official recognition in October, it now wants to force newspapers which do not join up to face legal penalties. Over the next few days MediaGuido will publish a series of findings showing that Impress regulators openly despise the newspapers they want to regulate, our dossier shows these individuals are totally unfit to be the watchdogs of a free press. This is The Impress File…

MediaGuido can reveal that Impress code committee member Gavin Phillipson, a law professor at Durham university who boasts of his commitment to “free speech” in his Twitter bio, wants to ban the Daily Mail. In response to an article by Quentin Letts, Phillipson wrote: “is such a shame we can’t just ban the Daily Mail – probably the worst aspect of contemporary British culture”. Impress wants powers to regulate the Mail, in truth its senior staff want to ban it…

MediaGuido has found that four senior Impress employees have endorsed loopy comparisons between the Daily Mail and the Nazis. Impress CEO Jonathan Heawood has shared multiple social media posts calling the Mail “fascists”, “a neo-fascist rag”, and a claim that it is “increasingly adopting fascist style politics”. Another post shared by Heawood compares the Mail to a newspaper from Nazi Germany.

Impress board member Marie Messenger Davies, the chair of its code committee no less, has shared social media posts calling the Mail “fascists” and accusing it of using “Nazi methods” to “attack its enemies”. Another Impress board member, Emma Jones, has shared social media posts accusing the Mail of “Nazi smears” and “Hitler adoration”. Gavin Phillipson has also promoted a social media post showing the Mail and a Nazi newspaper side by side.

How can a press regulator reasonably regulate an industry if it wants to ban newspapers? How can they come to fair and balanced judgments if its CEO believes they are “neo-fascists”? Impress is the press regulator that hates the press, it is a farce that the government is giving these people the time of day…

Max Mosley Gives Tom Watson £200,000

watson

Tom Watson has declared a massive £200,000 donation from multi-millionaire former Monaco-based tax exile Max Mosley. The Murdophobe fan of German-themed parties had previously written Watson a cheque for £40,000 last year. Watson says the new cash is “to support my office as Deputy Leader and Shadow Cabinet Office Minister”:

mosley

Mosley of course spent years avoiding tax in Monaco, returning to the UK in 2010 when he complainedI now have to pay tax here”. Curious that as he sharpens his knife Watson needs so much money just to “support his office”…

Max Mosley Bankrolled Watson’s Deputy Leadership Campaign

Tom Watson’s deputy leadership campaign was bankrolled by multi-millionaire former Monaco-based tax exile Max Mosley. Guido can reveal Mosley wrote Watson a cheque for £12,500 in August, also providing him with £27,554 worth of printing, a total of a cool £40,000. Mosley spent years avoiding tax in Monaco, returning to the UK in 2010 when he complainedI now have to pay tax here“. Don’t tell Jeremy Corbyn…

Watson’s campaign placed press regulation as his number one issue, putting Leveson front and centre of his website ahead of any other issue. What was it about their shared Murdo-phobia that convinced the German-themed spanking party enthusiast to open his chequebook?
