    Mephitic, being a pie fan you are surely familiar with the humble variety.

    For those who havent seen it already, there is a very interesting piece in the latest Eye (issue 1314) about the connection between Labour, News International, and Michael Gove.

    The Sun don't have a wonderful record with reporting facts, but giving away Euro 2012 stickers of Rio Ferdinand when he's been quite publically dropped by Hodgson from the squad is a pretty big oversight from a paper that's "the voice of football".

    If we take wonderful as meaning astonishing then they probably do.

    I always wondered when I saw it.

    Interesting:

    More temporary alzheimers from murdoch:

    and good testimony on how little editorial interference there was from Murdoch:

    which seems direct evidence that Murdoch has lied to Leveson - as I recall he made his standard claim that he didn't affect editorial decisions (hoho).

    wasn't quite sure what was meant by the last line in this though, at the end of the piece:

    Reading it just now I took it to mean that some, or someone, felt Evans was ranting - but were/was polite.

    Yes those were the two possible meanings I'd picked up - also with they listened 'patiently' to him.

    i think it tells us immediately that they've got a good team, but that they're already scrabbling to grab something anything for lack of other good stuff to keep quiet and confident about.

    No chance of even getting a Judicial Review - feed any Application in the shredder:
    But I'm sure the Telegraph enjoyed finally having a story to report on the broader subject. No one much else for her to leak it to, I suppose.

    The legal system isn't as pliable as the rest.

    Looks pretty desperate to me.

    Prediction (evens only): a drip of irrelevant claims of bias and improper procedure right through to the opening of proceedings.

    It's a fairly weak accusation in itself, it's only in the context of everything else going on that it's particularly newsworthy.

    This Jeremy Hunt malarkey is a rather interesting vignette all of itself; first James Murdoch stitches him up under oath, then Mrs Wade finds an incriminating email - this in relation to their self-proclaimed "cheerleader", now some no-name Labout MP is fed low grade info from God knows where.

    Hunt's been thrown under the bus so many times he should get an Oyster Card.

    I suppose it's all to do with News Int. desire to bridge Disco Dave's firewall (and watch him slowly burn), but it is interesting to see the game slowly unfolding.
  22. killer b

    killer b away.

    mccabe hasn't necessarily been fed anything - it looks like he's (or someone has anyway) just been cross referencing vaisey's disclosures against hunt's.

    Media firms named here - Tory scum ad agency M&C Saatchi, New Labour loving DDB and the nauseating Groucho Club. Three and a half grand undeclared. Hardly a major scandal, though the dread image of Jeremy Cunt and his tories networking at smarmy media events is one that will haunt me down the years. GUILTY!

    I'm still going for the 'alien head in search of a body' that I liked upthread, seeing as how all reasonable explanations don't seem to be up to the job.

    Well it was on BBC T.V. breakfast news in between the bit about 'The Voice' and 'The Weather', if that counts.
