Unlike some (for @jackofkent )

I am, unlike Iain Dale, not ashamed to be a fucking political blogger today.

Guido is a muckraker, that's what he does. He has poked the lefty community in the eye today by muckraking a Tory, something that they all said he wouldn't do when the Tories were in power.

Frankly, I don't care what a fucking politician does, as long as I'm not fucking paying for it. And what has been burning my arse about this is that the actual employment of whatever his name is does sound a bit suspect, because a poisonous muckraker claims:

The appointment of Hague’s former driver to his private office is controversial because 25-year old Myers has no expertise for the job, no relevant experience and his only qualification for the position is his closeness to the Foreign Secretary.

And that, my dear reader, is what fucks me off. In a manner that is completely indistinguishable from those fucking Labour cunts, this minister has basically given a mate a fucking job. Whether it's a mate as in beer-drinking-buddy or mate as in anal fisting when you're away from the missus, the thing that makes me steam is that I'M FUCKING FUNDING SOME CUNT'S WHIM!

Frankly, I think Hague should fucking resign and go kill himself in a fucking field somewhere. Not for any potential sexual misdemeanour, but for pissing away my money.

And if you can't understand the difference between someone's private life and misuse of public money, then you're as much of a cunt as he is.

Just to raise a point of information, now that Parliament and the UK have been abolished, shouldn't Wee Willy's title be changed from Foreign Secretary to something like Minister for Inter-Regional Relations?

Well if there is so much as a rumour that's obviously all you need to wish someone dead.

You total bunch of utter cunts.

Listen you twat: have you not noticed yet that I don't believe in fucking government or political parties?

You're just snidey because it's your fucking tribe that's getting the stick now. If it had been a Labour MP pulling these shines and I was moaning about that, you'd have been approving wildly.

Stop being such a fucking hypocrite.

Whilst agreeing with your underlying principle (and, to an extent, sentiment), I do have to say here that we do not know for certain whether he was employed purely on the basis of being a mate of Hague's.

You're taking that from what's his fucking face. The prick whom I won't even name, I despise him so much.

How do we know it was all on a nepotistic basis?

And in any case, even if he were a mate, well, er, someone SOMEONE would have got the job anyway.

SO what you're saying is, all politicians are cunts for spending too much money on things like drivers and aids and so forth.

In which case, why raise it specifically about the Hague drama?

Do you see my point? I'm not being annoying for the sake of it, I'm trying to make a distinction here.

Obnoxio The Clown said...

"In which case, why raise it specifically about the Hague drama?"

Possibly because he's giving every indication of employing a mate? You're right as far as you go, but the fact is that if you reckon it's OK for an MP to give a mate a job paid for out of public money for no apparently good reason, it looks especially bad.

And it doesn't matter if you're employing your spouse, kid or friend.

Can we shoot the fucking lot of them yet?


John Demetriou said...

Sure, we can all agree nepotism stinks and if that has happened, then...that stinks.

But my point is, is there a need for that post to start with. That is probably the more important topic from a libertarian stand point.

Do they need so many people on the public payroll.

Obnoxio The Clown said...

C'mon JD, are you fucking seriously asking me if I think the government should be trimmed? :o)

Oi, Obo, just take a look at this piece of "wisdom"


Keep this in mind the next time you are about to repeat a rumour or spread gossip.

In ancient Greece (469 - 399 BC), Socrates was widely lauded for his wisdom.

One day an acquaintance ran up to him excitedly and said, "Socrates, do you know what I just heard about Diogenes?"

"Wait a moment," Socrates replied, "Before you tell me I'd like you to pass a little test. It's called the Triple Filter Test."
'Triple filter?" asked the acquaintance.

"That's right," Socrates continued, "Before you talk to me about Diogenes let's take a moment to filter what you're going to say. The first filter is Truth. Have you made absolutely sure that what you are about to tell me is true?"

"No," the man said, "Actually I just heard about it."

"All right," said Socrates, "So you don't really know if it's true or not. Now let's try the second filter, the filter of Goodness. Is what you are about to tell me about Diogenes something good?"

"No, on the contrary..."

"So," Socrates continued, "You want to tell me something about Diogenes that may be bad, even though you're not certain it's true?"

The man shrugged, a little embarrassed. Socrates continued, "You may still pass the test though, because there is a third filter, the filter of Usefulness. Is what you want to tell me about Diogenes going to be useful to me?"

"No, not really."

"Well," concluded Socrates, "If what you want to tell me is neither True nor Good nor even useful, why tell it to me or anyone at all?"

The man was bewildered and ashamed. This is an example of why Socrates was a great philosopher and held in such high esteem.

It also explains why Socrates never found out that Diogenes was shagging his wife.

Good stuff. I seriously doubt many give a monkey's about Hague's after hours social life. However giving top jobs to your cronies stinks. I happen to like Hague but he should have known better.

I'm with you on this Obo. He'd already got a couple of advisors so why does he need another one? Instead of hearing the inside story of the Hague's marriage - which is using the miscarriages to look for sympathy IMO - I'd prefer to hear what qualities Mr Myers posesses that, with a somewhat mediocre degree & no relevent experience (apparently) makes him so uniquely suitable for a job of a Foreign Secretary's SpAD?

Smoking Hot said...

Obo, you are so wrong on this ... how dare you? You sound like my wife complaining about my new secretary.

Ok, my new secreatary may wear provocative clothing and in these harsh financial times has to share a room with me when we are away on business.

I personally deemed her qualifications for the position of personal secretary above all other applicants. Although l must admit that it would be a bonus if she could type and have a little more knowledge of a computer than Facebook.

Fascist Hippy said...

I think this whole episode has got completely out of hand. I can confirm that rumours about William and Christopher only started after Myers left a note for his mother saying "You will not be able to contact me for the next few days as I shall be doing business in the Hague all weekend".

Compare and contrast:

Kingbingo, this thread.

Most members of the Westminster village have known that Hague is Bi for more than a decade.

WOAR: I now wonder why Kingbingo is so bummed by the whole story...

JuliaM said...


"Frankly, I don't care what a fucking politician does, as long as I'm not fucking paying for it."

This is the core and the crux of it. And it's now going to be lost amidst the outrage and counter-smear...

Jill said...

Absolutely. The man is underqualified/not qualified for the job - and even worse, this administration were full of hot air about cutting down on SpADs paid by the public purse. Hague was already at his limit, so what is the justification for employing an extra one? Especially one who appears to basically be just a mate.

Anyone can see there's something wrong with that.

Guido is a muckraker, but it's not the point. And as you say, at least he's proved he'll rake everyone's muck.

What is possibly MOST annoying, is that Hague is quite prepared to pull his marriage and its miscarriages into the public domain to ostensibly deny that he's gay, but actually to divert attention away from the fact that he's made an extra job to employ an underqualified mate when this is precisely what the Tories said they would not do during the election campaign.

Good for Guido. He made the bloke resign. Let's see if Hague is so in need of that extra SpAD that he employs someone else, shall we? Bet he doesn't, and then we can all say "Ipso fatso, you trougher".

Kingbingo said...

I am a hypocritical, generally useless, Tory-voting cunt.

How dare everyone go after William Hague! Let's all make up nasty rumours about the Labour leadership candidates all being secret homosexuals. Let's leave the Tories, whom I vote for, alone.

As John Demetriou would say in this situation - "if you disagree with me, you are a cunt". Except I already am a cunt.
