Cherie's At It Again...

Looks like Cherie's been up to her old tricks again. The Mail on Sunday report is HERE.

At what? As usual you don't make any specific allegation, just indulge in smear.

Iain Dale said...

Are you thick, or what? Click on the link which I have helpfully provided and you can read it for yourself. Assuming you can read of course. Dear oh dear.

Michael Oakeshott said...

You would have to be anonymous to post that. If only Blair could reshuffle the missus. Would there have to be an election if she resigned?

Buster George said...

She probably needed a back hander to pay for her make up.

lets face it, 30 grand per speach isn't enough to keep that face presentable.

the loans have dried up, Labour 27 million in debt, she has to find the money somewhere

Now dont turn into, I did not say that did I about leaving the EPP Cameron. Please dont reply to anonymous comments they dont deserve one. If the silly buggers wont leave a regular ID their opinions are not worth the cyberspace, they are written in. If I wrote to your surgery ( that is if you ever do become an MP that is )signed anonymous I am sure you would not answer me.

Please can you asure me that before their is a Tory government, you will make it clear to your Tory chums, that you and all the other political blogs are watching them like hawks. So that after I have delivered leatlets and raised money for the Tory party for the last 10 years, I wont have to read about Mrs Cameron lining the pockets of her personal mates, from anyone? At least promiss to try.

If I was a hard working Labour member I think I would be spitting blood right now.

Cherie for all her 'intelligence' cannot tell right from wrong. Right is what is good for her. Sadly she still does not get it. A real scrubber and Tone is too gutless to put her right. What a pair. Time for Vol Two Labour Book of Sleaze.
BTW Iain you and Guido featured in Chas Moore's Spectator column.

Anonymous said...

There is nothing wrong with what Cherie has done. There are numerous examples of people using their political links- come off it. Allow me to provide some examples: Zimbabwe, Chad, Somalia, Niger ....

What's that?..examples that are not banana republics? Oh ? Cannot help you there mate. LOL.

Who needs newspapers when lain's diary is such a good substitute for.........

Iain,
I wonder, is there not some means of screening out or actually labelling Labour HQ's so-called anonymous contributions by identifying the IP address from the electronic trail?

dizzy said...

Jesus wept, how did anonymous ever get online? I just wrote about this one on my blog as it happens. Will this woman ever learn Iain? Clearly she's banged to rights on this one too.

Anonymous said...

Comparing the timing of your posting and the comment from anonymous 12:28 AM, you must be, being monitored constantly by some sort of New Labour spin office. There is hardly enough time to draw breath between your posting and their counter spin.

You must be very flattered Iain, anyway, rest assured there are plenty of us, who do actually reside on this Planet, reading your blog as well.

nsfl said...

Where you when you realised that the tipping point really had been reached for the Antichrist's government? I was idling on Iain Dale's blog. It was a sunny Sunday morning.

Cranmer said...

The first two entries on this post are what Sundays are meant to be about.

Cranmer arose from his bed, and laughed out loud imagining the exasperation of Mr Dale. Cranmer is plagued by a few thickies as well. Blogging seems to attract the mentally impaired, but the Lord's Day is a day for reflection upon their plight.

Chuck Unsworth said...

Iain, no doubt 'anonymous 12.28 AM' can read, but just not understand - two entirely different processes as you'll recognise....

But you're right, of course, to be concerned about this clear evidence of the failures of the 'education system'.

The Remittance Man said...

Iain,

Prezza and Tony have both claimed that they don't understand this interweb thingy.

Looks like we have proof that at least one of them was telling the truth, doesn't it.

John Coles said...

I don't think Anonymous ever thinks before he posts. He adds nothing to the debate - other than the usual reflexive pro-Blair bilge.

John Sandell said...

Small error in the Mail report: Hilary Armstrong (wife of Prof Corrigan) was Labour's Chief Whip at the time of the emails, but is now Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster. Jacqui Smith is Chief Whip.

jafo said...

We know Anon isn't Alistair Campbell (no swear words - did you see that appalling rubbish about the World cup he "blogged" on the Sun website?)

However, although there's no shortage of braindead toadies at Labour Party HQ, out here in normal land the rest of us can think and reason for ourselves, much to their horror!

(By the way Iain, do you ever sleep?.........)

Anonymous said...

"The Anonymous" knows that the two purposes of The Blair and The Blairina have always been money making for themselves and money making for their circle of friends. In this however, it is difficult to see the difference between them and the previous two Tory prime ministers. Going back into pre-history, at least poor old Ted Heath did not seem to have as his primary motive the accumulation of friend-capital.

The Anonymous asks again - and has not yet had an answer on Iain's important blog; will Cameron and the next Tory govt be the least bit different? I have no doubt whatever that the people around Cameron will even now be busy cosying up to the big businesses, trading favours, making promises, expecting future largesse. Cameron himself does not yet show obvious signs of this, but the leader always has his graft well hidden. Some who voted New Labour as I did in 97 were under the delusion that Blair was different. How wrong we were - and how skilled was the NL lie machine! And how perverse was the corruption - giving in to Big Tobacco within weeks of taking office for example! Another cause of course beloved of the Old High Tories.

Poor England. Poor Britain. Poor British people, tax-farmed like grazing cattle for the benefit of the central London moneymakers, ably represented in the House of Cashins, and the City of Longcons. Poor ethics. Poor morals. Poor us.

strapworld said...

Iain,

You did rather ask the obvious of the juvenile 'anonymous' a guardian cub reporter, desperate to be seen as 'serious'.OF COURSE he is thick, or what!!

He probably has a photo of the liverpudlian woman peering around the door in her tesco nightdress on his wall...poor thing!

Adrian Yalland said...

I think that this important subject is too important to be sidetracked by vitriol about Cherie Blair's appearence. She is an aweful person, clearly a feather nesting, freeby grabbing, jumped-up, self important women who has almost certainly abused her position on numerous accoassions for personal gain. This is more then enough to condemn her, without us needing to resort to insults. Yes, she is no oil painting - but that's irrelevant!

Verity said...

Someone above remarked on the Blairina's "obvious intelligence", but I have never been convinced of this. Her intelligence, such as it is, has always struck me as rather pedestrian. She has always struck me as a swot.

I think she applied herself at university and she came to the attention of her tutor because tutors like swots. And, if I remember rightly, her tutor recommended her to a prestigious chambers in which a friend of his was the senior partner - I think Lord Irvine.

Blair was also a junior in that chamber and two greedy, mediocre, self-regarding souls recognised a soulmate.

Taking the Piss is what Libertarians do. Its the only way our intellects can deal with the reality that our common sense knows surrounds us. Libertarians with a practical mind vote Conservative not because we love the Conservative Party,( in fact we quite often hate it ) its just that to us Socialism is the Anti-Christ of humanity.
BTW humour and political gossip it what this blog is mainly all about, and long may it be so.

patrizia said...

Did anybody notice what a mess Blair's hair was (or what's left of it) in his interview with Jon Sopel? Either Cherie didn't take the hairdresser with her or Putin fixed the make-up comrades.

Yak40 said...

also a junior in that chamber and two greedy, mediocre, self-regarding souls recognised a soulmate.


Uncanny parallels to Bill & Hill.

Verity said...

yak40 - Yes, you're right. Which is why when the two couples finally met, four mediocre, greedy, self-regarding souls recognised each other and bonded.

The Remittance Man said...

Actually Verity, I think you underrate The Mrs Great Leader. She strikes me as the brighter of the pair (although I accept that when starting from a low base any exception will appear remarkable).

Admittedly I've always felt it was a low, animal-cunning kind of intelligence directed solely at the furtherance of her own wellbeing but intelligence none the less.

Like their trans-atlantic idols Bills and Hills. He's the nice, but relatively dim, front man while she's the one steering the matrimonial boat in search of power and lucre. I also think, in the manner of Lady Macbeth, she could be the one to go off the rails more dramatically when things go as pear shaped as her bum.

Sorry Adrian, cheap shot I know, but as Gary says we libertarians like to take the piss. Besides, if she reads this, I may, in some small way, have contributed to her derailment.

Actuallt Cherry watching could provide a very good barometer to the real stresses and strains in both the Blair household and the government at large.

Of course no one asks who Paul Corrigan is,his background is originally in the communist party in coventry, he used to write radical books on social work one famously entitled democracy in social work unfortunately when he got his first head of department job at North LONDON POLY he ran it more as a stalinist than a democrat, he was almost sacked for sexual harassment and then had a vote of no confidence passed on him by the staff and had to resign, by then he was well in with the Labour Mafia via Hilary Armstrong and got himself jobs advising Islington Council and Labour ministers on how to privatise public services.Still you cant criticise Tony he has ex tories ex sdp and ex communists advising him maybe even the odd labour member!

Anonymous said...

Dear Ian, Forgive me for posting this, but it needed clarifying...

Strapworld....
On Guido's site you accused me of being a "Guardian Cub reporter"(plagiarism) so I chose that name my tag as it' a fun name, but I don't want to be confused with the anonymous who wrote crass blog entry 1 on this thread.
There are many people who post as anonymous.
Please try and remember not to tar every anonymous with the same brush!
Hope that makes it clear.
