    Can’t wait to see when police get round to arresting Brown for committing perjury while testifying under oath at Leveson.


    • geyza says:

      Indeed, Brown’s testimony is as an open and shut case of perjury as I have ever seen.

      How long will it be before he is arrested?

    If you ever wanted to know how Muhammed must have responded when he heard the word of God being whipsered in his ear (for 23 years) then you only had to listen to John Pienaar giving voice to the revelations of the late Gordon Brown, PM.

    Normally Pienaar bounces onto the airwaves with an instant analysis and interpretation of the motives and meaning behind any statement by a politician (normaly Tory)….asking us to read between the lines, to ask exactly what was ‘really’ meant….normally we get a completely diferent picture from what you might have got had you been left to your own devices and judgement to interpret what was going on.

    However here Pienaar semed strangely reticent and reluctant to upset the apple cart and delve into what was really going on…ie Brown continuing his ‘war’ against Murdoch.

    And all aided by a ‘credulous’ BBC.

    Best line must have been Brown replying to the question as to why Sarah Brown had written to Brooks thanking her for her consideration saying she was merely because she was a ‘kind and forgiving person’.

    The credulous reporting of Brown denying saying he was going to war against Murdoch is all the more astonishing…apart from well known and reliable tales of Brown’s temper and intemperate actions…there is Vince Cable’s little declaration…..so such a thing is perfectly possible…and likely.

    Brown must be considered to being very close to perjury if not actually commiting it.

    Shame the BBC don’t have the desire or guts to call him on it.

    That would be a real news story.


    • johnnythefish says:

      They don’t have the desire or guts because he’s one of their own. Note his condemnation of Murdoch’s alleged campaign to ‘neuter the BBC’. (Was that a slip of the tongue? Neuter them of what, their biased broadcasting?)
      ‘Good old Gordon, stands up for us doesn’t he? Let’s go easy on how we report this’. Labour know damn well who butters their bread for them, and it’s not News International.
      And if he or his missus didn’t give permission for the Sun to report his baby’s illness, and if the information was gleaned in the sinsister circumstances he alleges, and if it was such a traumatic event for him (as evidenced by his edge-of-tears performance) why didn’t he complain about it at the time? Was he asked this question?
      The whole thing stinks.


  3. Fred Bloggs says:

    An area that the bBC make allot off is the Sun’s publ;ishing medical details of Gordon’s son. At NO POINT does Gordo claim that the told the SUN NOT to print the article. (Knowing full well that if they had, all hell would have broke loose).


  4. Roland Deschain says:

    This comment at Guido’s deserves as wide an audience as possible:

    Slack security again at Leveson – some f***ing nutter is ranting in front of the cameras


    • geyza says:

      LOVE IT!!! LMAO!


    • john in cheshire says:

      Mr Brown is of a similar disposition to Mr Prescott. They are both nonentities and both force their presence into the spotlight so they can pretend to themselves that they matter.


    • The General says:

      Go to YouTube and look up ‘Gordon Brown picking his nose and eating it in House of Parliament’

      REVOLTING !!!!!!

    The Daily Politics today was unbelievable. Pure labour lies.

      Mr. Robinson’s tweet stream for the day is an eye-opener, especially in how he viewed the start of the day…
      Nick Robinson ‏@bbcnickrobinson

      Brown asks big question – “Who is going to pay for quality journalism?” & suggests BBC licence fee could be used to pay for web journalism
      …to later on…
      Nick Robinson ‏@bbcnickrobinson

      First sign of danger for Osborne when Jay asks “Are you sure are about that?” – a telltale sign like “Is it your evidence?”
      The mass delusion seems pretty well embedded.
      At least Gordon was eventually prised out of the position(s) he held that were killing the country, by vote.
      The BBC, sadly, seems to have no such check or balance on its activities.
      And, Nick, there are two ends to ‘quality’.


  6. Chilli says:

    The highlight for me was the BBC’s Norman Smith excitedly miming the ‘clunking fist’ as he enthusiastically reported Brown’s bullshit testimony. ( BBC News 24 at 1:10pm 11/6/12)


    • As I See It says:

      Norman “but Labour say” Smith appeared to be relishing Brown’s rant rather than caricaturing it.

      Hardly surprizing. Brown suggested that the internet should be policed using the BBC licence fee as a model. God forbid.

      Amazing isn’t it? The BBC claim not to be biased in favour of the left and yet all their stanchest supporters just happen to be on the left.


      • johnnythefish says:

        Your last sentence sums up their bias and leftist support in a nutshell.

    Phone hacking: No charges for Guardian reporter Amelia Hill over ‘leaks’ The detective constable was arrested in August last year Continue reading the main story
    Phone-hacking scandalQ&A: Phone-hacking scandal
    The main players
    Profile: Rebekah Brooks

    A Guardian journalist will not be prosecuted over the alleged leak of information on the phone-hacking probe, the Crown Prosecution Service has said.

    It said there was insufficient evidence to charge Amelia Hill and a detective constable from Operation Weeting.

    How disappointing. The lady behind the Milly Dowler phone message deletion lie has got away with it. What special powers do the Guardian have, where legal bullets just bounce off them? They didn’t hack or leak, they just have X-ray vision.


  8. Beness says:

    If Murdoch has any of these phone conversations (that never took place) taped then Brown is toast.

    Looking over your shoulder yet Gordon?


  9. Earls Court says:

    The way the BBC have gone after Murdoch is terrible it proves how biased they are. they only attack him because he is their main competitor. Murdoch has to make a profit to survive and his sky tv is getting bigger every year. BBC only survives though a compulsary television tax. The BBC knows that one day the licence will come to an end. How many people like paying the licence fee? Its about time there was a national campaign to end the BBC television licence.

    “Leveson: Why Gordon Brown’s self-destruction is a vindication for George Osborne.”

    By Benedict Brogan



    • johnnythefish says:

      ‘Tories should study this timely reminder of what it was they fought against in 2010’.
      Easily forgotten by some, especially the BBC. ‘No more boom and bust’? – if one of Thatcher’s chancellors had used that line we would still be hearing about it from the Beeb – daily.


      • Dysgwr_Cymraeg says:

        And don’t forget about “prudence”.
        She was a regular sound byte too!


  11. Manfred VR says:

    Did anyone notice, that when Gordon Brown said that he never had a call with Rupert Merdoch, he slipped in the caveat of AT THE TIME.
    Legally if he had the conversation at a different time, he would not be lying under oath.


  12. Beness says:

    I think Brown should have enough on his plate he’s called 3 people liars today. Rebbecka Brooks, Rupert Murdoch and Peter Mandleson.

    I don’t think they will all take it lightly. Especially Mandleson.


    • #88 says:

      …And Mandleson rubbished Tom Watson’s evidence a few weeks back. The BBC didn’t report this or Mandelson’s appearance, however.

      And tonight, the BBC are failing to mention that Brown was challenged today about Mandleson’s evidence in which he said that Brown had spoken to him about the fallout of THAT call.

      The unanswered questions from Leveson are:

      Why in 2006 did Labour do nothing about the Motorman disclosure of widespread wrongdoing in Mirror Group and Mail newspapers?

      Why in 2009 did Brown do nothing about the NoTW’s phone hacking when allegations had emerged and he had the opportunity to do so?

      Why in 2004 did the DTI (and it’s Labour Minister) not pursue Piers Morgan (Daily Mirror) despite evidence that he invested money in shares tipped by his staff (who themselves were subsequently prosecuted)


      • Pah says:

        Morgans shares were invested in a company owned by one of Labour’s backers and BBC shitehound Alan Sugar.

        Perhaps that is why it all went quiet?


  13. JAG says:

    Well the coalition are far from my ideal in so many ways but seeing Bruin spouting utter b#ll#cks once more, and watching the fawning beeboids lapping it up reminded me, if it were needed, of how awful the Brown terror was. Just imagine, if he had managed to get back in!


  14. anonymous says:

    Oh god, wasnt it boring, brown mumbling away incomprehensibly in the corner, inaudible, the rest of the room dozing off. It was deadly.


  15. Framer says:

    Brown’s body language, when he lied or twisted, was so obvious it makes you wonder why Robert Jay is paid so much.
    He just didn’t notice, or care to notice.


    • The General says:

      He always gives a sickly smile when he lies.


    • gbcambridge says:

      Does anyone know what Jay does not pick up on answers which should be a straight Yes or No but are in fact of the sort “I certainly hope not”?
      Jay is no fool and I can only interpret his unwillingness to pursue Brown as “instructions from above”.


      • Guest Who says:

        Like a BBC ‘interview’, he certainly seems to have variable standards on when to interrogate with tenacity, and when to ‘move on’.
        Surprised when he had Miliband E. in the chair he didn not pull the BBC stunt of chipping in with ‘what you are saying is’ to get him back on track when the numptie doesn’t read the lines they’d all agreed beforehand properly.


  16. Earls Court says:

    Has Gordon Brown got aspergers syndrome?


    • Anders says:

      No, he’s just a lying prick.


    • Concerned Citizen says:

      No. Those suffering from anything along the Autistic spectrum do not – cannot – lie. Brown is a sociopath. That is why lying is so easy for him, and why he goes crazy if challenged. I have met his like before – best keep well clear of them.


      • Earls Court says:

        I’ve found most of the left suffers mental disorders. From aspergers, socipath, extreme jealously of anyone that isn’t a loser like them, bi-polar, self-harming, confused about their sexual orientation. Most people that are leftys are not very bright when out of their comfort zone.


        • The General says:

          Fortunately for them they tend to stick with those who display the same illnesses ………..within Labour Party circles.

    BBC Breakfast this morning still banging on about Cameron, the daughter, the pub and two months ago, but yesterday, ex Prime Ministers, Leveson and lies?….zzzzz.

    • will says:

      From all of Letts’ scepticism, criticism, doubt etc the “Today” programme gave us this sentence in the paper review

      One could dispute much that he said yesterday but afterwards my chief feeling was was one of sorrow – for this once powerful man’s plain unhappiness, whatever its cause.


      • Guest Who says:

        ‘the “Today” programme gave us this sentence’
        Control the edit, and you control the message.
        And the malign power of the BBC’s decision makers, via it’s £4Bpa 24/7 broadcast monopoly, is still being denied.


      • johnnythefish says:

        Pretty well a case of you reap what you sow, in my book.


  19. Demon says:

    The more I see from Leveson and the other investigations into press misdemeanours, the more it becomes clear that it’s all an attack on the Conservatives and Conservative-supporting media and nothing whatsoever to do with integrity or probity.


  20. Guest Who says:

    As Michael Caine might say, ‘norralorrapeopleknow that’…
    Certainly not those who only get ‘informed’ from limited sources, or pharisees offering only sermons to one deity.


  21. Deborah says:

    Do you remember the day that Jeremy Hunt gave evidence to Leveson? From early in the morning we had ‘Today is the day that Hunt will give evidence’; then ‘Jeremy Hunt has just set off to go to the Leveson enquiry’; ‘Jeremy Hunt as just arrived at the Leveson enquiry’ etc etc. Now maybe I didn’t hear much news yesterday morning but I was not aware of such detail where Brown was concerned.


    • The General says:

      Then I will give you a quick resume :-

      Gordon Brown arrived at the Leveson Inquiry at approximately 10am. lied his socks off for about four hours and then left.


  22. NotaSheep says:

    Questioner: “… Did you authorise your aides to brief against Mr Blair?”
    Gordon Brown: “No”
    Questioner: “Do you think they might have done so without your explicit approval, even with your knowledge?”
    Gordon Brown: “if they did so it was without my authorisation”
    Hmmm, as Gordon Brown did not add “or my knowledge”, can we assume that is was done with his knowledge?

    I have spotted that Adam Boulton, Quentin Letts and Nick Robinson have all called Gordon Brown a liar. Guido Fawkes has a longer list.

    So what happens now?


    • John Anderson says:

      I have seen lots of stuff in the media suggesting that much of Brown’s evidence was scarcely credible. Was weaselly. Or was in effect a series of lies.
      Whereas Osborne’s evidence was fluent and straightforward. For instance – News Corporation’s bid to get total ownership of BSkyB caused problems for the government whichever way the decision went. Agreeing the bid would upset other broadcasters and press, blocking the bid would upset the Murdoch media. This sounded totally credible to me.

      But much of the BBC treatment seemed to be challenging Osborne’s evidence – while sanitising Brown’s performance. In particular – stress was put on Brown’s contradictions of Murdoch and Rebekah “who had stated on oath” – without posing the obvious alternate, that their evidence contradicted Brown’s evidence “on oath.


  23. Guest Who says:

    Speaking of Gordon’s Back…
    Other than the BBC Jugend (Toenails this time rather seeking to avoid another mea culpa and steering clear of kamikaze sycophancy, mind) falling under tank tracks outside the bunker, can’t say many from the Labour Party seems to have been watching the ex-Dear Leader’s much from what I have seen & heard today.
    In fact, locating just the right spot for an ‘et tu..’ seems to have been more on the menu.
    How did this guy get to be in charge of our country again?
    Answers to which making some unique reporting over several years a smidge suspect in hindsight.


  24. chrisH says:

    Hope Murdoch sues the bugger.
    When you`d believe an octogenerian grifter of an Aussie Press Baron, and not your former Prime Minister; then it only shows how low are our political class.
    Watch the bugger and his rictus grins re briefing against Blair and the like…and we all know he`s a spineless black hole of lies and scum.
    The only credible thing he said was about his son and Rebekkah Wade-but because he lies about everything else, he can even lose sympathy over that!
    Prescott, Brown, Blair etc…what the hell were we all on?

    A little bit of Ed mixed with the Trade Unions

    Was this what he’s been working on while not working in Parliament?


  26. anonymous says:

    Oh god it was sooo boring!! Brown droning and mumbling away, im suprised there was anyone left awake at the end. Brown has to be the single most boring, soporific speaker with the personality of a slug ever to grace a public platform. He has all the charisma of a traffic warden.


  27. AndrewP says:

    Easy to tell when Brown is lieing – his lips move.

    However, he looked terrible. I seriously wonder if he has major health issues.

    I do wonder what form of vengeance against the leftist media will be taken. As we are still early/mid term what is the need to over react now?

    Also the left need to be careful what they wish for. If they force out Cameron they could easily get Boris –
