Specially for our beloved and purer than pure press.
It’s called The Feral Press
Didn’t just dream the idea up tonight, in case you’re wondering. The press have been instinctively “feral” for some time – years. A long time before the present phone hacking scandal.
I saw it last week at the Iraq Inquiry when most of them were determined to ignore anyone who didn’t want Tony Blair at the International Court.
Remember during the “Cash for Honours” fiasco when Yates of the Yard found zilch in the end, after “following the evidence”?
Remember the leaks about who was about to be arrested, or questioned the next day? Remember the press tried to say it was Number 10?
I remember it well.
They’re lying b*s*a*d* and they were covering one another’s backs, as the Police trousered the press’s dollar.
I hate to be a suspicious conspiracy theorist type, but, well… just following the evidence.
1. Cash for Honours Police Inquiry Nonsense
- Innocent – Blair & Colleagues – Honours Inquiry
- Sir Gulam Noon, Honours – ‘High Noon’ for Noon & Blair
- Transcript of Blair interview on “Today” on cash-for-honours
2. Press Bias/Brainwashing: ref Blair, BBC apologies, “Control Orders”, Iraq Inquiry
- Blair (the 5% man with 100% responsibility) in the ‘dock’ at the Iraq Inquiry
- BBC apologises yet again, but this time you won’t be hearing about it
- BBC reporter on Control Orders: “And BOTH were cleared”
- Ignore this, please: Blair Supporter’s Thoughts on TB’s 2nd appearance at the Iraq Inquiry
- The BIG (biased) Question – War Crimes & ‘The Downing Street One’
- Greased lightning Tony didn’t have time to hear my THANKS
- Tony Blair regrets. Blair supporters thank him for his political nous
- Off to the Public Hanging. I’ve packed the knitting

“All countries need a leader who isn’t afraid to fight terrorism. I believe Mr. Blair did a necessary job in helping his allies. Are we all just supposed to lie down and wait for them to come for us, I don’t think so.”
And – “Mr. Blair is one of the finest politicians to have had the privilege of serving the United Kingdom, and Britons are fortunate to have had him as their Prime Minister. Time will show that Mr. Blair’s approach to affairs in the Middle East were and remain correct. From a member of the Commonwealth, thank you, Mr. Blair, for your continued service to legitimate and lasting (and not convenient or politically expedient) freedom.”
AND – “Tony Blair was the greatest Prime Minister since Winston Churchill and the only regret I have he didn’t get my vote as I live in Canada.”
AND – “I am sick and tired of television and radio interviewers asking the same old questions over and over, regarding the decision to go to war in Iraq, presumably they hope Mr Blair will let slip some secret information which they would then use against him. History will show if the decision was the right one, (I believe it was) but people must accept that Tony Blair is an honourable man, and made his decision based on the known facts and not with the benefit of 20/20 hindsight.”
