Fat Boy Pickles kicks off


The Prime Minister

10, Downing Street
London, SW1A 2AA

3 February 2010


Dear Mr Brown,

At Prime Minister’s Questions today, you told the House of Commons that you knew nothing about the secret fund, worth a reported £50,000, which was held by the Labour Party for your benefit. When asked why you did not declare this on the Register of Members’ Financial Interests (RMFI), you said specifically: ‘I know nothing about what he [the questioner] is talking about.’

This simply cannot be true.

It is clear from Peter Watt, the Labour Party’s former General Secretary, that you were the beneficiary of a secret fund held by the Labour Party. He has said explicitly:

‘Before becoming Prime Minister, Gordon went to some lengths to insulate himself and the Treasury from our financial troubles, setting up his own personal pot of cash at party HQ. This was money we could not dip into, since it was set aside for the Chancellor’s own pet projects. Murray Elder helped secure donations from the Chancellor’s supporters’ (Inside Out, January 2010, page 105).

He went on to claim that it may have been used to finance your ‘long-term campaign to become party leader’ (Inside Out, Peter Watt, 2010, page 105).

Mr Watt’s assertions were widely reported. Indeed, across several pages in the Mail on Sunday, Mr Watt claimed that you used ‘up to £50,000-a-year of Labour money to pay for private polling’ (Mail on Sunday, 17 January 2010).

The allegations were explicitly confirmed as truthful by a Labour official who said in the same article: ‘It [the fund] was funded through donations to the Party.’

In the light of these allegations, my colleague, Greg Hands MP, wrote to you more than two weeks ago, on 17 January, to query why you had failed to declare the fund properly the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. This letter was publicised in several newspapers on 18 January.

As you did not respond, Greg Hands submitted a complaint to John Lyon, the Parliamentary Commissioner this week. I attach a copy of this complaint for your reference. Again, this complaint was reported.

Yesterday in a speech titled ‘Transforming Politics’, you said that you would ‘do all that is necessary to restore trust’ in politics and the conduct of MPs. If you wish to restore trust in politics, you should stop treating people like fools by claiming that you were unaware of this fund when all the evidence points to the contrary. I therefore urge you to admit to this fund’s existence, apologise for misleading the House and co-operate with any inquiries that John Lyon may wish to make.

Yours sincerely,

Eric Pickles
Chairman, The Conservative Party
Member of Parliament for Brentwood and Ongar

This'll be fun. Let's see if this gets any further than Sunlight's same allegation a fortnight ago

Even if it doesn't get any further the publicity won't do Gordon or the Labour Party any good. Isn't it time for CMD to bring on that 'vote of no confidence'?

I've pilfered it too. Did leave you a credit and link though. Eric's certainly put the cat amongst the pigeons with this one.

Part of Brown's problem is that he does try to treat people as fools but he's just not very good at it. Not as cunning as he likes to think.

They obviously don't want their daughters to go to school. Or drive cars. Or show their faces in public.

Pakistan blast kills US soldiers

Such lovely people. And I'm *so* glad that the liberal elite have decided to flood my country with them without ever asking me what I think about that.

I look just like that when I'm wearing only a pair of stained underpants. Oooooooh matron.

""Isn't it time for CMD to bring on that 'vote of no confidence'?""

"Cast Iron Dave" has rusty balls.

He is more like a german Christian Democrat than a British Conservative.

Which is why British Conswervatives wont vote for the third way heir to Blair plank.

And dont get me started on Osbourne - cunt.

I despise the New Conservatives as much as I hate New Labour.

Brown has already re-written the history of this money in his own mind. That's always been the trouble with Brown, he convinces himself a lie is the truth. He deludes himself, and that in a nutshell, is why we are so fucked. Someone should replace his medication with a placebo and we could all watch him implode. It would be better entertainment than anything on telly at the moment.

Dear Pickleshaub,

Talk of secret monies, etc is a nog-go area. If you remember our partnership was dissolved sometime ago...

Yours sincerely,

Stan Laurel.

Dear Ron, You seem fascinated by mens underwear, care to share anymore information on that? I get the feeling you do not like gays/blacks/muslims/jews/irish/trade unionists. Ever considered the BNP or C18? You would have a bright future.

Gobshite said...

Call me Dave should pull that gurning twat over the despatch box by his ears and call him a lying cunt.

Even if Labour do manage to get a new leader in before the election, Harman is bound to cause mayhem if she gets the job or not.

And we get to see Brown going Rambo at the Chilcott enquiry.

microdave said...

"we could all watch him implode" - That would be a bit of a let down (pun intended) I would rather he exploded by being force fed, like the character in the Monty Python film...

Pickles was once (and prop still is) a MARXIST.

if they put Gordon in any way in control of Labour Party funds, that explains fully to me why the Labour Party is bankrupt.

shit, the invasion of pakistan sure ain't going smoothly - fortunately the bomb got more of theirs than it did ours, we got off light with 3 men down, 2 crutched-up for life, whilst they lost 3 schoolgirls and another 63 of the little muslim bitches got injured. i make that a convincing win for the land of the free and the home of the brave (us). and our christian drones notched-up 600 or so paki-kills over the last year - so we're heading the superleague-table by motherfucking-wog-mile. pop the cork on that bottle of bollinger, honey, and remember i like it just like my taliban insurgents - well iced. hahahahaha! that's a good one eh michelle?!!! fuck me, that's aside-splitter, i'll sell it to that dumb nigger, chris cock!

seal the cunt in a ballot box and post him back to bonny-bagpipe land in the regular royal mail - with a bit of luck, when the bent-postie pilfers it for a quick gander inside, he'll get dumped in a canal somewhere like where wot most of the other worthless packages do. sick.

Borrowed it too OH. On the premise of 'better late than never'.
