- ‘Credibility of Leveson ‘Inquiry’ buried by request to Tony Blair
Lord ‘Justice’ Leveson asked Tony Blair to help him decide “the future of the press” and anyone who thinks it’s not a case of ‘business as ‘usual’ is just as deluded as the despised Blair.
Blair’s ‘credentials’ to advise on press reform are not to be found in the illegal Iraq war but rather in his blatant suppression of Operation Motorman. Thousands of crimes committed by journo-crooks, private detectives and corrupt police officers, buried by Blair.
In fact Blair told the ICO that the press was too big to fail and too powerful for him to fight. In real terms, what Blair really meant, and it informed his decision entirely, was the usefulness of the press to his desire to stay in office.
It comes as no surprise to anyone that Tony Blair put personal ambition ahead of justice. Blair was a rather unimpressive barrister before he joined the Labour Party and has much in common with Leveson.
Only weeks ago, when faced with a legal challenge to open the devastating Motorman files, Leveson also decided on a path of suppression. It is little wonder one Establishment crook asks another for ‘help’ in dealing with the press.
In 2000, Labour accepted a £100K donation from porn baron Richard Desmond, who had been allowed to buy the Daily Express with Blair’s permission. Labour tried to conceal the donation, though fear of shame but the episode proved Blair was willing to act as middle-man in the sale of newspapers for the right type of donation to his party.
Blair claims he made no deal with Murdoch but flew all the way to Australia to attend a News Corp conference before he became Prime Minister. Just an innocent fact-finding escapade according to Blair.
In power between 1997-2007, Campbell and Blair bullied and threatened any journalist not prepared to show him in the light of the ‘glorious leader’. One should not forget Campbell’s threat to Mail on Sunday editor Jonathan Holborrow regarding the David Shayler affair… “we’ll send in the heavy mob” to seize the files. The “heavy mob” was Special Branch.
Blair and Campbell delighted in terrorising journalists and smearing anyone who dared to oppose them. When Labour spin doctor Lance Price published a damning diary of his years with Blair, he was attacked as a “fantasist” with mental health issues. Labour’s favourite trick, borrowed from the old Soviet Union.
Asking Tony Blair for advice on how to clean up the press, is tantamount to asking Pol Pot for advice on human rights. Forget Iraq, for a moment, it’s difficult, but judge Blair on his dealings with the press. Leveson is a press ‘inquiry’ after all, apparently at least.
The message coming through from Leveson is perfectly clear, it’s ‘business as usual’. Months ago Leveson referred to the corruption of ‘assisted journalism’ as a “public service”.
Leveson then went on to suppress Motorman, tantamount to conspiracy to pervert the course of justice, refused the evidence of intelligence officer Ian Hurst and blocked MPS whistleblower Peter Tickner.
The quasi-inquiry, in real terms a pantomime, is the most blatant cover-up and affront to public demands for justice in British history. It’s being played out on TV screens across the country. Who takes Leveson seriously other than his fellow Establishment crooks with the same agenda.
Blair’s performance yesterday was the typical, holier than thou, clinical self-delusion from a professional liar, carried over with his favourite Larry Grayson act. Evil is not a word I use lightly against anyone but Blair is in fact pure evil.
In closing it should be noted that schoolboy Ed Miliband, currently masquerading as ‘leader’ of the Labour Party, is reported to have asked Blair to come back to the party to help with the next general election. A vote for ‘Labour’ in 2015 is a vote for Tony Blair; the ‘spiritual’ leader of the rotten Labour Party and now ‘saviour’ of the press.
Use your vote as a weapon to ensure Labour does not form another ‘government’ in Britain.
