Campbell - Marr Interview

The media is divided, some say it was a stunt, others believe he was showing his emotion for a change. I've read the excuse on his blog and don't believe him.

All things considered, I think his 'pause' could have been his conscience catching up with his mouth. We all have a conscience, just some suppress it more than most. Mr Campbell is one of these people but today his conscience gained superiority. Not for long though, not with a spin merchant such as Alistair Campbell.

I don't need further proof that the man doesn't believe what he says.


Events dear boy, events said...

I think we can assume that Campbell will not be making many more media performances this side of the election.

subrosa said...

Howard, I do hope you are right. Did you read the excuses on his blog? All very well thought out of course.

Events dear boy, events said...

I did. Forget the emotion. What Campbell is worried about is the damage that Chilcot is doing to the Labour party in the run up the election. What will also be of concern to him is Brown's forthcoming session, because he may contradict a lot of the earlier evidence.

subrosa said...

Of course he will be Howard because it's backfired completely. Brown thought it would show him as the good guy initiating it, Blair thought he'd be the good guy and Campbell wanted to come over as the one who held it all together.

None of that has happened even though Brown hasn't appeared yet.

Apogee said...

As pirates of old said , "if we don't hang together, we'll all hang separately".

Could be about right !

Dark Lochnagar said...

He definitely meant it. I wouldn't believe a word that he utters. I've never forgiven those Campbell bastards for the Glencoe massacre.

subrosa said...

Isn't it time they were forgiven DL? By that I don't mean AC.

Strathturret said...

Just remember Campbell is a paid liar.

His works are no more believable than those spoken by an actor.

Richard said...

It's the latest Labour strategy: public blubbing. Campbell on Marr; Brown on Piers Morgan. Expect Darling on an abusive childhood, Harman on bullying at her public school, Milliband on the humiliation of growing up with a tiny cock. It worked a treat for Blair with all the Princess Di nonsense, and playing for sympathy is all they have left. Get out and emote for New Labour!

subrosa said...

A paid liar and a fairly poor author Strathturret.

subrosa said...

Agree we're in for more of the sob stories Richard.

Pathetic really that they've got to put on this charade. Now, if any were grieving over the mess they've made of this country I may have a little sympathy.

Clarinda said...

This is obviously the successful tactic nabbed from the throughly dreadful 'X-Factor' where the more eye-watering pathos is blubbed the more likely the accumulation of votes! It's a winner - as the X-Factor audience is reputedly a dead-ringer for the average Labour vote.

With apologies to AL-W

Don't cry for me Campbellina
The truth is I've never liked you.
All through your Blair days,
Your mad existance,
I'll keep my promise,
I won't buy your novel.

And as for fortune and as for fame,
You've always invited them in
Though it seemed to the world
They were all you desired.
You're in denial
You've spun your last spin
The tears are for you and for yours
My revulsion is plain as can be.
Don't cry for me Campbellina.

Lying git. Over 600,000 people dead and god knows how many injured horribly... and all he has to do is appear at a few inquiries and pick up tv appearance fees...

Beneath contempt.

subrosa said...

Absolutely wonderful Clarinda. Now I know what you meant! Thank you.

subrosa said...

And write below average books Tris, although again the critics are saying his new one is good. He must have a lot of favours to call in.

I won't be reading it anyway.

Strathturret said...

Yes I can't forget the way Dr Kelly was treated by Campbell. He is scum in my opinion.

Wrinkled Weasel said...

I posted on this over at Tom Harris' blog and he banned it - because he did not like it. That is all.

Don't forget, Labour does not like free speech unless it agrees with them.

I am kind of back..

subrosa said...

Yoohoo WW, good to see you. I've given up reading TH's blog. I can't be doing with people who won't allow differing opinions.

gildas said...

I am old enough now. I have seen enough. I have done enough. I have been lied to enough. And I have met, and heard, people like Mr Campbell enough. Goodness knows I have done some bad things, and many more foolish things. And as such, as the Good Book says, would rejoice in the repentance of a prodigal son (having been more prodigal than most).
However, this man is, bluntly, a lair and a bully.
