And this time, the whispering wormtongues are joined in battle by an great big Orc. Yes, swinging his meaty metaphorical fists, John Prescott has attacked the media that dared to report his master's idiot gaffe. There's no regret expressed, because none of it was Gordon's fault - it was all the media. Booo.
Writing in - or more likely, dictating to - the Guardian today, Prezza explains, through mouthfuls of pie, that BigotGate was 'all a Murdoch plot'. Really? Oh yes. According to John:
"Yet again, the dying Murdoch empire is doing all it can to influence a British election"
And we've all missed that, deluded fools and closet bigots that we are:
"While the media are concentrating on what he said and the apology, the real story is how and why it happened"
Is it? Is it fucking really? We all thought that the real story was that Brown's famed ill-temper and typical hypocrisy were exposed to millions, as he slagged off a lifetime Labour voter who'd had the temerity to ask him some questions he'd rather not answer. That what 'he said' and 'the apology' were the real, entire story.
But Johnny P. says we're all wrong. What really happened was that:
"..the Murdoch family reached a new low in their desperate attempt to turn the election for the Tories."
Really? So now it's not even a business, it's a family that's attacking poor wee Gordy. What dastardly deeds did they desperately do, John?
Did they drop a heavily made-up actress from a helicopter into Gordon's path? Was it Sam Cam in disguise, lurking in a hedge to discredit the hopeless fucker still further? Or did Sky, perhaps, offer an old woman a thousand pounds to go up to Gordon and shout 'Send 'em home' in a quavering voice? No, none of that. What the eevil empire did was:
"..broadcast a private conversation between Gordon and his staff .. just as bad as his paper's phone-hacking. It was a breach of privacy. It was underhand. And it was done in the pursuit of ratings .."
Hang on a fucking minute, John. They didn't exactly have to hide in the fucking boot of the car to get this 'private conversation', did they? The great clunking fuckwit forgot to turn off his microphone, for fuck's sake. And all his retinue of media advisors, fluffers and whisperers didn't notice.
So then, when Gordo' let his gurning, grinning 'vote for me' mask slip, and said what he really thought, let his utter contempt for the public show clearly through, his views went straight into the earpieces of dozens Sky reporters.
And the only little bit of right in that hatful of wrong you just handed us, Prezza, is that Sky did this 'in pursuit of ratings'. Well, duh. A news organisation breaks a story, in the hope that it will increase its ratings? Again, duh.
As always, your views are a compendium of bollocks, Prezza. We all know that you, Gordon Brown, the Labour party and your union pay masters all have the same view of the rest of us: useful idiots, a source of cash and votes to be milked when the need arises, but otherwise to be totally ignored. Gordon doesn't want to speak to the public: he just wants them to vote for him, and then fuck off back to their miserable little lives, while he steers the great ship of state.
He couldn't give a flying fuck about what some old dear thinks about immigration, or anything else. He was furious not that someone had different views to his entrenched views, but that she had been able to say so on prime-time TV, where other voters could hear her.
Have another sausage roll, and shut the fuck up.
+UPDATE+: Great minds think alike: JuliaM, that ol' Ambush Predator, feels the same way about Prezza
