Eine Kleine Nichtmusik

A post about a hypocritical Blairite bully. Oh, and also Alistair Campbell

In this post we saw BlairSupporter (Uncle Jimmy) reporting on the intuder at the Leveson enquiry. He decided that one of the inquiry's legal assistants displayed a "knowing smirk" when the intrusion occurred, though no such smirk is visible in the video clip he posted. He then laid into the woman for acting unprofessionally, knowing she was not in a position to defend herself. And the jury is still out on whether he described her in obscene terms or whether his choice of language was merely unfortunate.

I return to this only because Jimmy devotes a post today to attacking a site whose report of the incident included a photograph of a grinning Tony Blair which it described as "Tony Blair reacting" to the disruption. Well, Jimmy has a good old rant about how 'a lie is halfway round the world before the truth has got its boots on', and how this picture does not at all represent Blair's reaction (which, to be fair, it doesn't). Jimmy comments

To say that this smile was “reacting after a protester disrupted his testimony” is to imply “and look what he thought of that man’s protest. What arrogance!”

So: the folk at Daylife (whoever they are) publish a picture which shows an actually grinning TB and implies (without further comment) that he was grinning at the interruption. Let's humour Jimmy and assume that their intention was to mislead us regarding his thoughts on the intruder. Baaaad Daylife. Jimmy on the other hand picks on a lawyer, invents a non-existent "knowing smirk" and explicitly does what he accuses Daylife of doing by implication. Ah, but Daylife are (maybe) being critical of Tony Blair, whereas the mighty BlairSupporter is being critical of some mere piece of legal tail, an unimportant little person who can safely be shat on.

Yup, just business as usual for the hypocritical toady.

===========================================================

Incidentally, Alistair Campbell was the guest presenter of Have I Got News For You this week and was hilarious. I never liked him when he was Blair's Spinmeister, but nowadays he's loosened up a bit. He got in plenty of pro-Blair comments while clearly being perfectly happy to joke about some of TB's "legacy". And as you would expect from someone who was paid to think quickly and come up with snappy answers, when he came under sarcastic fire from an on-form Ian Hislop he returned it with interest (and was very funny). One can only hope they bring him back for future programmes. Watch it on iPlayer anyway: it's on until Friday. Oh, and as the picture in the BBC link shows, when he wanted to shut Hislop up at one point he simply pulled out his bagpipes!
