JONNIE, GOBBY, OUR HELPFUL POLICE & TOM WATSON
It seems a BBC broadcast journalist, Paul Lambert, aka Gobby, has had his parliamentary pass withdrawn after filming parts of the attack by “Jonnie Marbles” against Mr Murdoch at yesterday’s select committee. A part of the ensuing ongoings that some would rather we hadn’t seen. There’s now a #SaveGobby hashtagged for trending on Twitter.
I can’t recall whether his filming contained the one image that sticks in my mind. I was switching between BBC & Sky at the time. But it is one which I have not yet found online, though it was visible to all on British TV screens as it happened.
As Jonnie lost his marbles and according to the BBC’s Nick Robinson DID actually manage to hit his target Rupert Murdoch, another thing that the cameras DID show astounded me.
It was the image of two British policeman carefully wiping away the shaving foam from the face and the back of the man who had just thrown the stuff at Rupert Murdoch. This picture shows him somewhat cleaned up:
UPDATE – Just found a picture of a policeman cleaning up the baby at Alan Connor’s site – Though even his caption says “getting handcuffed”. He’s already cuffed. Notice the cloth/wipe/tissue in the policeman’s right hand.
My mind went instantly to the pictures of DSK as few months ago appearing at court in New York. Now, HE could have used that shaving cream.
By the way, I only emphasise that is was Wendi Deng’s right hand she used because a man who doesn’t know his Left from his Right – Tom Watson – continues to suffer from the inability to see things straight. Plus ca change then? (Mandelson accuses Watson of leading coup against Blair)
After the incident yesterday Mr Watson told Wendi Deng she had a “great left hook” when she leapt to the defence of her husband at the committee meeting.
1. Good article by Fraser Nelson
3. Guardian reluctant praise –
“The lightning reflexes of Wendi Deng as she sprang from her chair to swing at her husband’s attacker and try to smack him in the face with his own foam pie owes as much to her athletic prowess as to her protective instincts toward Murdoch Sr.”
How does the Guardian know this? Nasty remark.

I am staggered by all the hate directed towards our former Prime Minister. I believe that Tony Blair made the Iraq decision in good faith and is most certainly NOT a war criminal. If anyone should be tried at the Hague it should be those in the media for totally misrepresenting the information and facts. The media are to blame for fuelling this hatred as it is purely driven by them. (UK)
The greatest and most successful leader the Labour Party has ever had with the courage to fight the Islamist terrorists who really would like to kill us all, and you never hear a good word about him. The herd of independent minds, commentators, activists etc who have never had to make a difficult decision in their lives drown out all debate with their inane chants of war crimes and blood on his hands. Defend him at every chance. I just wish more people would do it. (Glasgow, UK)
Blair was the greatest Labour Prime Minister. It is a disgrace that the party has turned away from his legacy. Shame on Ed Miliband and his so-called ‘new generation’.
