The Mother Says NO
Posted Saturday, 11 April 2009 at 20:51

I am at my mothers. Under no circumstances will she allow me to go anywhere to do any media. "But you are just a back bencher " she reminds me, kindly, "why do they need you?" I don't really want to tell her. If I buy all the newspapers in the local shop early enough in the morning, she will never know.

So, I'm trapped. In Lytham St Annes.With phones without noise filters.

Sky are sending an outside broadcast van all the way from London here in the morning. I'm going to tell them to drive off with me!

News Of The World rang tonight after reading my blog. I never really had them down as a thoughtful bunch but it was a "we know it's untrue, dont worry" call.

Nice NoW :) So nice I'm going to buy every copy in my mothers shop in the morning.

Nadine, I'm 50 and I have yet to disobey my mother, that said...Nadine, go for it, aim for the jaw, and punch through it. These are people who saw you as fodder - and that includes Captain Insensible. Go for them, and go for them with everything you've got. We are all behind you. Sammy

Just seen the morning papers. It's not you they are really after Nadine. Trouble is Labour dont like you. You are normal, beautiful and come from a typical Labour background. They can't throw the toff slogan about when you are around.

Hello! Not sure if this will make you feel better or not but I hadn't even heard of you before all this blew up (not massively into politics but find old vs. new media battles fascinating and spent the last 3 hours reading all the relevant blogs, news sites etc) - anyway, as a neutral (Labour if anything but very reluctantly these days)observor I'd just like to reassure you it's obvious you're the victim of a disgusting smear campaign. And having checked your own blog out you sound like a warm, likeable person, so I hope this whole situation doesn't affect you negatively. My fiance (staunch Tory) has just read this and told me I sound like a hippy. Can't win ;) Anyway, best wishes - I'm sure you'll emerge from this in a brighter and bigger light!

Nadine, you have become one of the most liked MPs in Parliament. Do not let the buggers get you down. Sleep well tonight and face that camera with the guts and courage we all know you have. You have so many people behind you.

As a constituent, I want you to know that there isn't much that oily rag could do to diminish you in our eyes. I hope you have a strong mans arms to sleep in and protect you tonight little lady.

Please don't buy up all the NOTWs in Lytham tomorrow - for the first, and probably only, time in my life, I want one! Go for the jugular, Nadine!

Well, thank goodness Labour can spare the time to libel you and your colleagues: that must mean the banking crisis, recession and wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are over. Don't worry about the papers, they'll be recycled in a week's time, but McPoison's emails will keep him out of the job market for years-how will he pay legal costs and damages? :-). Keep on with the good work - you'll make a good minister.

Dear Nadine. Don't get mad, get even. Please remember that revenge is a dish best eaten cold. Also remember that you will have to be as pure as Caeser's wife for the rest of your political career, as the bastards will be after you. Now, go get 'em.

Nadine - I'm not a constituent of yours and haven't voted Conservative since 1997 (LibDem) but following this I think it's time that Mr Cameron and Mr Osborne take the helm. Whatever happened to the thought that politics was meant to be a profession practiced on the basis of the good of the constituents? These actions of McBride - at the behest of No10, no doubt - seem to remove the lie that Broon is incompetent. He seems to be a malevolent creature, or at least, be supported by a column of malevolence and I'm afraid that I smell the putrid pong of Mandelson in this. No10 cannot escape this - if they claim they didn't know, they're incompetent. If they did know then they're a malignant growth on the face of Britain. The thousand year Reich dreamt of by John Smith is dead. Good!

I've voted for each of the 3 main parties over the past 20 years so am not a brain dead one party supporter. However over the past 10 years I have seen the slow slide into the depths of political corruption which would have been unacceptable in an earlier generation. I will be voting Conservative at the next election, the sooner the better. If Cameron has any sense he will get you to do more T.V. You come across as someone from my working class background who wants to give people from all classes the best chance to progress in life. P.S. It is no harm that you are more photogenic than a lot of the horrors sat on the opposition benches.

Dear Nadine, I'll confess to not having heard of you until few days ago. But now I have you bookmarked. I'm still clueless about whatever calumnies have been chucked at you but rest assured I'm on your side. Snorting Labour deserves as many picadors as can be lined up.

If anyone has any doubts that Labour is in its death throes they should watch Stephen Pond MP's pathetic attempt on SkyTV to explain away this outrage as a 'battle of the bloggers' in an 'unregulated piranha pool' which it is 'almost impossible not to enter'. Hopeless. Please let there be an election tomorrow. We deserve better than this shower for another 13 months.

Please also bear in mind that the emails themselves could be defamatory as being distinctly seperate of what the papers actually publish - Media Lawyer.

Go for the jugular, Nadine. Go after Comrade Chairman McMarxist himself. It's inconceivable that Brown wasn't aware of, and supportive of, McPoison's and Dickhead Draper's antics. As one of today's commentators says, (just) plausible deniability is McBroon's stock in trade.

Attached is a House of Lords guidance extract from the Crown Prosecution Service specifically detailing what an unlawful grossly offensive message intended to cause annoyance or needless anxiety is under current case law: http://www.cps.gov.uk/legal/a_to_c/communications_offences/#p_14 3. Unlawful content in electronic communications Improper use of public electronic communications network - Section 127 Communications Act, 2003 The Communications Act 2003 section 127, see Stones 8 - 30110B [and Blackstones B19.40], covers the sending of improper messages. Section 127(1)(a) relates to a message etc that is grossly offensive or of an indecent, obscene or menacing character and should be used for indecent phone calls and emails. Section 127(2) targets false messages and persistent misuse intended to cause annoyance, inconvenience or needless anxiety; it includes somebody who persistently makes silent phone calls (usually covered with only one information because the gravamen is one of persistently telephoning rendering separate charges for each call unnecessary). If a message sent is grossly offensive, indecent, obscene, menacing or false it is irrelevant whether it was received. The offence is one of sending, so it is committed when the sending takes place. The test for "grossly offensive" was stated by the House of Lords in DPP v. Collins [2006] 1 WLR 2223 to be whether the message would cause gross offence to those to whom it relates (in that case ethnic minorities), who need not be the recipients. The case also said that it is justifiable under ECHR Art 10(2) to prosecute somebody who has used the public telecommunications system to leave racist messages. The offence is a summary offence, and part of the fixed penalty scheme.

Just watched you on Sky News. Go get 'em. They think they are above the law. Well, they are not and they cannot smear people in such a way and get away with it. All of us in the right wing blogosphere are behind you.

I never thought that I would be shocked by the tactics used by this ghastly government! We need then OUT and OUT NOW. They must be desperate to write this trash.

She is a credit to the Tory party. Oh... and pleeeeeeeeeeese win the next general election.

Nadine..please don't add to the stress facing yourself or waste your money on suing these corrupt smearers. For as we speak the disgusting authors of all this nonsense are being eviscerated in the press, media and exposed as the venal and ungentlemanly scum they are, and it can only get worse for them. By the time this is over their careers will be over and whatever credibility they might have had previously, washed away in utter disgrace. To that extent, justice is being done in the court of public opinion, more publicly and robustly than any legal action on your part could ever hope to achieve. Anyway, best wishes and I hope and pray you have a good Easter.
