Andy Coulson quits Downing Street to spend more time with his lawyers

#2
Miliband has just said that appointing Coulson in the first place raises questions about Cameron's judgement. That's rich coming from the bloke who made the numerically-challenged Alan Johnson Chancellor of the Exchequer, and less than 24 hrs after that gent's resignation.

A bit rich, but nevertheless right. Cameron must have known this would bite him on the arrse

Perfectly true, the appointment of Coulson was a mistake, but Red Ed's hypocrisy is still breathtaking, even by the standards of Labour politicians. After all, the post of a PM's Comms Chief is important, but not in the same league as that of the Chancellor. And Miliband was taking flak over that appointment well before Johnson resigned.

What I think this story actually shows is that we have moved from having a government that is so obsessed with spin that it doesn't matter how dodgy a communications director is in the past, they are untouchable. A party that would wait for the busiest possible news day to hide bad news. A party where the leader was so infallible that he could admit being wrong even when it was obvious he had hired the wrong candidate to erm, well, having a government that is so obsessed with spin that it doesn't matter how dodgy a communications director is in the past, they are untouchable. A party that would wait for the busiest possible news day to hide bad news.

Good good.

I'm glad he's gone but sadly he will just be replaced by some other equally as distasteful.
The Campbell's and Coulson's of this world should not be on the public payroll.

But did he care (CMD)? Did he ****. He is a smug arrogant twat (as are most politicians).

Well could backfire horribly on him, and I hope it does. Obseve how upset he is at the "news"



Guido Fawkes says there are allegations that one Alex Belardinelli had been making inquiries into Alan Johnson’s private life.

Alex Belardinelli is Special Adviser to Ed Balls

"Shadow Cabinet sources say they believe the Sunday Times has the story and Ed Miliband himself believes that Ed Balls’ people have had a hand in the story getting out"

Well well. Fighting like rats in a sack.

Touch of deja-vu there Baz - at so many levels!

Yep. I do find it amusing those poor deluded sods who voted Tory can't accept that their bright new party leadership is every bit as bad as New Labour.
Hush now. The Emperor's clothes are lovely.

Phone tapping and perjury are criminal offences, so young master Coulson could be on his way to prison.

Who knows? He could end up sharing a cell with Teflon Tony.

Oh JOY!

Having listened to the BBC describe the Tories basically as a bunch of out of touch posh boys lacking the 'common touch' (paraphrased and inferred), there is surely only one replacement that can counter the disaffection of the working class, is media savvy, as well as knowing the enemy inside out; Garry Bushell.

Personally I don't like him, but that's not the point.

As a Tory supporter and voter, I was astonished that the PM should appoint someone from 'the wrong end of Fleet Street'. He, Cameron, must have had a moment of madness.

Nevertheless, I reckon I would rather have any number of 'N of the W' staff on my team than the goggle eyed, unblinking, proven failure, public school educated (never forget that, you socialist mongs), dogma driven, obtuse and appallingly repellent oik Balls!

What fun we shall have with the non-entity, union owned Milliband and the repulsive union owned Balls, jousting at the 'head' of the so-called Opposition. Makes me want to say: 'Come back Johnson, we all love you'.

If it was not for the BBC, paid for by our tax money, I don't think any body would have heard of the dreadful Labour Party for months and months and months. They were awful; they are even more awful, and they will never, ever, get any better.

The BBC keeps trumpeting with glee that Balls is the one man who can frighten the 'Tory led' Coalition. Frightening to look at certainly, but how else is this dinosauric failure frightening? Unless of course he is ever allowed to get his pudgy hands on the nation's finances - again!

I reckon that by 'electing' (joke) the panda-like Miliband as 'leader' the Labour Party, they consigned the party to second place in the next election. By bringing the psychotic idiot Balls into the frame I think they have signed, sealed and will be delivered of the third place!

Both these third-raters are the placemen of the unions. So, here we go again. Do we have MPs in charge (notwithstanding the European Soviet Union - the real boss) or the likes of the revolting Crow and his brain-dead, shaven headed, lumpen gang of Leninist 'wanabees'?

Here's my simple answer. I'll vote for anyone that idiots like you hate in the hope of cleaning up the shallower end of the gene pool through massive cardiac infarction.

Often quite dangerous in the deep end of the gene pool; it's a niche sport, hope you end up preadapted to genetic swimming.

Nothing proven against him personally was there? but I could have missed it, so punish him severely. Give him a job in the dreadful EU where he will become a millionaire, then make him a Lord with plenty of perks..that'll ****ing teach him. Then bring him back to do that idiot Vince Cable's job, so that he can write his memoirs and make even more dosh. Yes, punish him.
