John is proud of his political roots and waxes lyrical about Thatcher, when it was still fashionable to do so !
You can read the rest of this fascinating article here in the parliamentary house magazine dated July 2009
I didn't know of this guy's existence until Moor Larkin's latest blog post captured my interest.
You see, John W was and is a fierce anti - BBC 'crusader' from as far back as 2003 according to this in the guardian published when he got his 'dream job' as culture Sec this year !
But sod the licence fee, what about any agenda he might have, all things BBC related ?
Select Committee's ? Tom Watson ? BBC ? Rupert Murdoch ? Goodness Gracious what does any of this have to do with Jimmy Savile ? I suggest you read the article about his 'entirely unexpected' 'cabinet elevation' !
Especially given what happened to Murdoch in 2011, just before Jimmy died !
Oh, the fuss John made about the Savile Newsnight saga
He agreed to wait for Pollards findings before deciding who else at the BBC might be called in for questioning
And, when Nick produced the only Savile report worth reading, John spun over to, not WHY Jones' project was dropped but the 'bigger question'
It was all right to attempt to expose a dead disc jockey, but when it came to living Lords, well !
But, all this pales into insignificance, when one considers the minister for culture's own association, by family, to a convicted child sex offender, one Charles Napier, this guy.
Now, were not talking about an alleged goose in a dressing room here, we are talking serious charges that go back to the 1970's.
The minister's response in 2014
He hadn't just left school in 1995 had he ? Not that having a half brother jailed for child sex abuse, should affect anyone's reputation or job chances that is !
Now, guys and gals, imagine my shock to find just now that one of Napier's 'victims' was a journalist, and not just any old journalist, oh no this guy worked at Private Eye Magazine !
I think I'll go back to bed and huddle under the bedclothes with my tranny like I did when I was a kid. Us ordinary kids had better things to listen to than bloody election results !
Boarding school girls ? Oh no, not that again please !!
