Im Sorry..

For blogging twice in minutes.

 

It's events and my Samantha like political nose, it won’t stop twitching.

 

I think the sharks are circling. I think Gordon’s own side are out to get him.

 

That’s why he has written the letter, that’s why he wants Watson in place. Without him he is totally exposed.

 

I think smear gate may be the end for Gordon.

 

See what a handwritten letter does? I’m calling him Gordon now!

 

News at ten tonight. Sky sunrise at eight in the morning. Various radio, including the wonderful 3CR!

found at Guido's site “DeeDee99 13 Apr 09, 3:08pm (about 2 hours ago) I’m a Civil Servant - and so was McBride. He was paid by the UK taxpayers, like me. We were both required (presumably) to sign the Civil Service Code. He broke it. Not only did he break the Civil Service Code, it appears he has also committed the CRIMINAL offence of Malfeasance (Misconduct) in Public Service. He used Government time, equipment and his email account to write malicious and libellous emails about members of Her Majesty’s Opposition, which he then sent to a colleague in the Labour Party with the intention that they be placed in the public domain. The fact that they weren’t published on RedRag is immaterial. It was Conspiracy to commit libel. He did it on behalf of the Labour Party (if not the Prime Minister, although that beggars belief). Tom Watson is Her Majesty’s Minister for the Civil Service (not Gordon Brown’s). He is therefore responsible to the Queen for McBride’s conduct. It is not sufficient that McBride has resigned. He should be prosecuted. Mr Watson, as the responsible Minister, should be calling in the Police to carry out a thorough investigation and in due course, when the evidence has been gathered, the file should be passed to the Crown Prosecution Service. In the meantime, if the evidence is destroyed, an offence will have been committed under the Freedom of Information Act - also prosecutable if you are a Civil Servant. Now why hasn’t Mr Watson, or our fine, moral, ’son of the manse’ Prime Minister acted swiftly to ensure that a Civil Servant who, on the face of it, has committed a criminal offence, is investigated by the Police. Could it be because there are others in the No.10 bunker who are implicated? There are thousands of Civil Servants - like me - who are watching this develop and seeing that there is one law for us, and another for the political ‘civil servants’ who do Gordon Brown’s bidding. McBride is a disgrace to the Labour Party - but he is also a disgrace to the Civil Service. Some of us are proud of the jobs we do for the country. This doesn’t just bring Labour into disrepute. It brings the Prime Minister and Mr Watson into disrepute. They are Ministers of the Crown. They govern on behalf of Her Majesty. That they appear to be allowing McBride to commit an offence and get away with just his resignation is just … NOT GOOD ENOUGH.”

I'm a Civil Servant too, but can't go into details on account of the Official Secrets Act 1911. Look back and you will discover that it was me who predicted that The Retreat From Moscow would come today. Sunday was too soon and Tuesday too late. The PM won't go just yet. The Summer Recess is the earliest possible time with a general election on 08 October 2009. More likely however is that he will retire at Christmas with the election under a new leader shortly after the clocks go forward on 28 March 2010. Don't book a holiday in April!

Please ask the police to investigate McBride's actions which seem as if they may well be criminal. We have had quite enough of the rich and powerful getting away with things we would be up in court for.

We are all right behind you Nadine. Keep on keeping on until we have removed this odious, control freak government.

We await the reply with much interest http://www.craigmurray.org.uk/archives/2009/04/formal_request.html#comments I have today sent the following to Tom Watson MP: Dear Mr Watson, This is a formal communication to you in your ministerial capacity. I write as a former senior civil servant and a life member of the FDA. It appears to me that there is the clearest of prima facie cases that Mr Damian McBride has committed the criminal offence of misconduct in public office. There appears a strong prima facie case also against Mr Charles Whelan. I believe that you have a ministerial duty to draw this concern to the attention of the appropriate police authorities so that an investigation may be undertaken. No doubt you will wish to consult the Cabinet Secretary, but in the case of a credibly alleged breach of the criminal law, not only of the Civil Service Code, I believe you are also under an obligation to consult the police. Yours Faithfully, Craig J Murray

Nadine, keep on keeping on, I think your intuition is spot on. Let's get this odious, control freak government out and get on with the business of restoring this country.

Watson is a Cabinet Office minister, not a Cabinet minister

This all goes back to Labour's years in the political wilderness, struggling under the Welsh windbag and others, and the steps they decided upon to change things in their favour. What Blair, Brown and the rest of the clique, particularly the thinking man's thug, Campbell, alighted upon was the notion of telling people what they wanted to hear. Producing market research-led policy (as opposed to struggling with an ideology) and above all a tight rein on the press. This, in turn gave us 'a good day to bury bad news', the 45-minute dossier, countless policy U-turns and now this sordid little saga. I always knew that when the silly little girl, Jo Moore, announced to her colleagues that the raising of the towers was an opportunity to hide unwelcome news from the public that the media at large were missing the real story. They ran with Moore's poor taste and Stephen Byers poor judgment in failing to sack her. The real story, even then, was that we, tha tax payer, were paying government aids to conceal the truth from us and lie to us. A terrible state of affairs and not at all what a once great democratic country prides itself on. A good day to bury bad news was way back in 2002. It's good to see that our government has been felt able to reform itself and put the nation back on track in the intervening years. What is it they say about leopards and spots?

Hi Nadine Just wanted to say how impressed I am at the coherent way you are getting your message over. I've seen you on TV and heard you on the radio and you are really doing a brilliant job. Stay strong.

I think your nose is 100% right :) Great performance on R5 this morning - can you call them lies rather than fabrications though?

You have a case, you had a point, but there's a danger of appearing self-important and losing perspective now. Was this yesterday really a bigger story than riots in Thailand?

You shouldn't call him Gordon or indeed call him Flash. My 7 yr old niece has just realised I'm a Conservative activist, this was her take on Smear-Gate: 'Wouldn't it be cool if you could say to Mr Brown: You're Fired!!' I couldn't disagree. :)
