By The Company That He Keeps

A Prime Ministerial entourage of Peter Mandelson, Alastair Campbell, Philip Gould, Carole Caplin and Michael Levy was unseemly enough.

But the likes of George Osborne, Rebekah Brooks, Andy Coulson, Lynton Crosby and Steve Hilton represent a previously unimagined nadir.

Crosby is not mentioned in all the 700 pages of John Howard's autobiography, and the most important thing about The Wizard of Oz was that he turned out to be a fake in the end.

The entire media are saying, or pictorially representing, everything short of an explicit reference to David Cameron's adultery with a woman who is now to stand two separate trials, one for phone-hacking and the other for bribing the police.

Why? They obviously mean it. They can obviously prove it. Why not just say it, and bring down the worst Government in living memory? What do they think that they are for?

This horse comes straight out of the Augean Stables. Must we wait for Ed Miliband to clear them out? Can we still afford to wait until May 2015 for that Herculean Labour?


  1. Dave having it off with Becky Brooks?


  2. "He even rode the horse."

    See also, among numerous examples,, which is actionable, but which was obviously passed by The Guardian's legal team.

    Why don't they just come out and say it?

  3. In the paper today (and if it is in the paper it must be true) is the report that Dave and Cleggy intend to push through in the near future a bill to approve homosexual 'marriage'. If Dave's days are numbered then it is to be hoped that his demise comes as soon as possible before this wretched piece of legislation comes before the House. It also states that your man Miliband will support these farcical events taking place in churches. This is another instance of the contempt that politicians have for the electorate in that they are determined to push through a measure which was not in any manifesto. What is the point of having a manifesto, a public declaration of policy and aims, when once in office politicians simply do what they want? Surely, Miliband, and every MP in Parliament, should state that this measure was not in any manifesto and, therefore, on a maatter of principle, it cannot go forward. It seems to me that there is some small but powerful international group which is pressing this agenda on the various countries of the world. Why else would the leaders of countries such as Canada, the USA, Spain, France, and the UK, push so hard and so determinedly for such a law that overturns the universally accepted structure of society.

  4. He Who Must Not Be Named used to threaten ostentatiously to sue you for libel. Until the newspaper that he was editor-in-chief of at the time accepted, with some glee because they all hate him, that he really had employed a now dead priest on condition that he was a paedophile. Suddenly it has all gone quiet from him.
