When Nadine Dorries announced on Twitter that she was appearing on BBC Question time tonight there was an immediate out pouring of what can only be described as pure unadulterated vitriol, in short its just plain nasty.
These sorts of attacks on right wing female politicians, bloggers and tweeters are all too common place, Aardvark has direct knowledge of personal sexual slurs being made against people he knows, not to mention the blue anteater who would like to set the record straight: Aardvarks don’t mate with ovine quadrupeds. Google ovine quadruped Labtard.
The picture Aardvark used to originally illustrate this point comes from a particular nasty blog that compares the ten things that Nadine and Sarah Palin have in common, dont expect a link by the way.
This picture has been removed by Aardvark because the author is complaining that picture was used without his permission despite the normal internet convention of having the authors url clearly visible on the picture, so it has been removed.
The first point this hate monger makes is “they both a have a womb and want to tell other people what to with theirs”, you can see where this is going.
2009 has been Gordon Brown’s annus horribilis (yes there is probably a Mandelchump joke in there) the financial saviour of the world could not save his own country, as the financial predictions of Brown and Darling were proved not only wrong, but so wide of the mark as to be laughable.
The scandal of MP’s expenses exploded in to the news courtesy of the Telegraph, and continues to cause massive tidal waves with today’s news that the Met Police have sent 2 further files on MP’s to the Crown Prosecution Service, making a total of 6 MPs and Lords in the frame. The expenses scandal initially reflected badly on the Government and Gorbals Mick the speaker, then backfired on Gordon Brown as he has had to pay back more money he should not have claimed.
The things claimed have verged from the ridiculous to fraud for non-existent mortgages, there will doubtless be some sacrificial lambs next year to satisfy the blood lust of voters rightly incensed over the abuse of taxpayers money by people they trusted.
The rising number of casualties in Afghanistan, the shortage of helicopters, equipment and funding blew up and did Brown, Ainsworth and Labour no favours.
Gordon Brown’s inability to admit there will have to be cuts in spending, the infamous 10% Tory cuts smear when government departments were preparing 20% cuts, 50% income tax and the resumption of class war and politics of envy have all failed to resonate with the public.
Then there was the slow motion car crash of the Labour party conference, the Sun pulling the plug on Labour support and Mandelson redefining the meaning of “Chump”. Read the rest of this entry
Nadine has already won round 1 with damages against Damian McBride
Round 2 promises to be even more interesting with Dorries v HM Government.
There is a growing nervousness from the Treasury Solicitor as the final outcome of any legal action will be decided by jury, and juries can be unpredictable. Especially where there is considerable public disgust at Smeargate and Gordon Brown is less popular than a fart in a spacesuit.
The witness box could see Sir Gus O’ Donnell, McBride and Gordon Brown all giving evidence under oath; Brown under oath would be a sight Aardvark would pay a lot money to see, just imagine the blustering, sweating, incontinence and Brown trying to revert to list reading. Just like PMQ’s but no Parliamentary privilege to protect you when you lie.
You can tell just how desparate Labour and it’s attack dogs are as they launch the next phase of Smeargate, in their sights again is conservative MEP Daniel Hannan.
“The deadly attack gerbils of the liberal-left have had a go at Dan Hannan.
The Daily Mirror, NuLav’s comically useless online propaganda outlet Labour List, and a sweet-looking boy named James Mcintyre who writes for the New Statesman, have all seized excitedly on some thoughtful, unexceptionable remarks Dan made about Obama’s “exotic” background.” writes James Dellingpole in The Telegraph
Here is what Daniel Hannan said is his blog about Obama and his “exotic” background
The could be trouble ahead for James Mcintyre, the New Statesman briefly removed his original blog post, which then reappeared with some sort of a disclaimer writes Damian Thompson in The Telegraph
Apparently Mr Hannan is following the lead set by Conservative MP Nadine Dorries and seeing his lawyers on Monday.
Nadine you may recall recently served Court Papers on McBride (via Guido LOL), Draper and 10 Downing Street, here’s to personal accountability, and some crippling personal damages settlements.
Gordon Brown and his hand picked attack dogs, Derek Draper and Damian McBride along with Labour Party General Secretary, represent all that is odious and grubby in British Politics today.
Hand picked by Gordon Brown, and working from an office right next door to his Leader, McBride conducted a smear campaign against not only opposition MP’s, but Labour MP’s as well.
No one was safe from McBride, no thought or smear was too low for this employee of the Labour party.
You would think that smearing a grieving husband and wife, who had just lost a child, would be a no no. You would be wrong, nothing is too low, or sacrosanct, to a dedicated Labour attack dog.
Borrowing from his Leader’s idea that women are entertainment meat, he then smeared Conservative MP Nadine Dorries, as someone who slept around. What a nice man.
This week it all went badly wrong for McBride and Draper as they were served with Court Papers; as was 10 Downing Street a day later.
Ardvaark really enjoyed this and can’t wait for the Court Cases start as there will be lots of prime blogging stories coming out of this. Well done to Gudio for serving the papers on McBride personally, I bet that felt good.
Enjoy a brief rerun of the downfall of McBride and the fallout for Labour.
Labour’s standing in the polls has been ever downward since this story broke.
So How Far Up the Labour Chain of Command does Smeargate go?
All the way to the top, is the answer.
Who employed McBride? Gordon Brown
Labour’s General Secretary Ray Collins chaired a secret meeting to create the Red Rag website writes Ian Kirby in the News of the World
The email’s existence links the dirty tricks site to the very TOP of the Labour Party.And it exposes the LIE, put out by Downing Street, and repeated by government ministers this week, that the smears project was just a minor aberration cooked up by a couple of renegades acting alone—and which would never have seen light of day.The new email, written by Labour’s then internet campaign chief Derek Draper, PROVES that the meeting took place, reveals WHO was there, WHERE it was held and WHAT was on the agenda. It shows that Collins travelled across Westminster for a summit in the offices of trade union bigwig Charlie Whelan. Whelan, one of Gordon Brown’s closest friends and his former chief spin doctor, was described last night by a Labour insider as the Prime Minister’s “unofficial Mr Fix-It”. read more from The News of The World
The Guardian had this to say:
“Smeargate will come to be seen as a landmark in political communications. It will go down as the moment when the new order of media operators subverted the establishment – the moment when a maverick blogger, Paul Staines, AKA Guido Fawkes, in effect took the scalp of Gordon Brown’s long-established press adviser”
If Ardvaark had a cap, there would be copious doffing in the direction of Guido, well done that man, the first McBride of the season!
Caught out and still falling short of an apology Gordon Brown writes letters of regret, that he and Labour have been caught out, but still fails to apologise. Michael Lea in The Mail
So has there been a price to pay for Labour for all this?
Oh joy of joys Yes
And for those who still argue that it’s the economy then how come that the Tories lost power on May 1st 1997?
Labour died 3rd June 2010
