A 'bullying' Prime Minister, but what of Andy Coulson?

Tory leader David Cameron calls for an inquiry into Gordon Brown's "bullying" conduct towards his staff with the suggestion he's unfit for high office. Quite right. But what a pity Cameron didn't call for an inquiry into - and has not publicly addressed once - the bullying conduct of someone very close to himself, the Tory media boss Andy Coulson. Last year, the former editor's bullying of a sports reporter cost the News of the World £800,000 before costs - a record award for workplace bullying.

Sadly The Times, which laudably publishes a leader today on the bullying claims against the PM - labelling bullies "weak" - was not moved to comment on Coulson's offence at the time.

Come to think of it, why hasn't the National Bullying Helpline - which has confirmed Number 10 staff concerns about the PM - made an issue of Coulson? Questions, questions. Rhetorical.

Madame's chronic campaigning on behalf of the Labour Party is embarrassing

Madame Arcati said...

Why? Because you're a rightwing cunt?

Actually, I could have added it's strange that the Labour Party has not made anything of the Coulson matter. If Cameron is so concerned about bullies, why does he employ one? Perfect riposte.

The Street of Shame is just a collective of bullies pushing around the entire country.

Did you know there's a new fad sweeping the high school kids of California? It's called a Rainbow Party involving group oral sex and is spearheaded the girls. I think they took the name not from the clip you showed but from Fallowell's song - there was a Gormenghast fad a while back too. What unwitting trendsetters you are in ol London town.

Rainbow parties are a good solution to the problem of teenage pregnancy

Yes, as are brothels for 16 yr old boys, as promoted on Shameless last night.

Absolutely. And gay sex too - a very good contraceptive, nature has decided. They've got to put it somewhere.

You've got a book there. Try Quartet - Naim loves new ideas.

Will those brothels have 16 year old boys as workers or customers ?
Just asking.

In Shameless they were customers, and they looked 14 to me.
