Tweeting Leveson

Tags: |

A day at the Leveson Inquiry, as tweeted by @Diski

Although I have an old-lady crush on Lord Leveson I do think he should say ‘good morning’ to start the day.

‘Unspoken understanding = science fiction’ Actually science fiction is a human being who doesn’t know about unspoken understandings #leveson

How to spend my day? Watch the #leveson inquiry or read Mrs George Osborne’s new novel: Park Lane ‘One address, two very different worlds’

Now that’s a novel concept. Where do you get your ideas from, Mrs Osborne?

Especially adore Leveson because one can get so much private thinking done while he chooses each precise phrase with glacial lack of hurry.

And his Lordship is so considerate to the help. Where can I apply to be his shorthand writer so he can give me a break? #gratefulforanycrumb

Will sign off all communications in future with DOLL: Dote On Lord Leveson

A little envious of Lord L’s rapport with Gus

#leveson Listening to Gus and his Lordship counting angels. Eating Heston’s Hot and Sour nuts. This is like the best dinner party ever.

Campbell doesn’t like to call anyone ‘evil’. I agree but prepared to make certain exceptions, in situation where ‘cunt’ unacceptable.

Spin doctor spinning wildly on unspoken deal quote in own book.

Suprising how unconvincing the whirling dervish’s body language is on policy tradeoff. Maybe he lacks a mirror reflection to rehearse with.

I get quite excited when Jay begins: ‘To be blunt about it…’ but it always ends in disappointment. Jay’s blunt blunted by legal reticence.

Yes! My Lord Leveson wants to know what was going on. So do I. Rupert rang TB to know what was going on. WE ALL WANT TO KNOW. TELL US, ALI

‘TB talking to RM? Don’t read too much into it, Judge.’ That lovely unconvinced grumpy look from his Lordship and a sulky break for tea.

Rebekah Brooks and Alistair Campbell being straight with each other. Machiavelli & Medici being straight with each other.

RT @DavidNobbs I read that Blair gets a million a year for advising J.P.Morgan. I don’t feel that any comment is necessary.

Campbell innocent as a babe. Spin invented by media. Never bullied anyone. Few mistakes made. And I was abducted by an aliens last night.

Come on Mr Campbell, don’t overdo it, says his Lordship. Doting on Lord Leveson #DOLL

Leveson so delighted with his fathoming as he finds the word ‘accessible’ after a properly prolonged pause. Man takes lang seriously. #DOLL

And no goodbye, either. #DOLL

    Hmm, not quite as funny as #popleveson

  2. streetsj says:

    @louburnard I think that is just rude and you should apologise. Disagree, argue, complain all you like but gratuitous rudeness – or at least gratuitous rudeness wihtout style or wit – has no place on here.

  3. outofdate says:

    ‘I think what Mr Bournard was trying to do, Mr …. Streets was to …. ah …. alert readers of this …. blog to a … ah …. Twitter stream which he …. enjoyed. Now…. you may argue with the manner in which has chosen to…. make his point — it may be right or wrong, I don’t know! — but that is surely a …. legitimate …. desire, can you see that?

  4. NickLezard says:

    (Example: “Mr Lennon, you are either the walrus or you are the eggman. You cannot reasonably be both.” Etc etc, for about a million tweets, an unusually high proportion of which were funny. But I put it to you that Ms Diski’s tweets are also, in their own right, amusing too.)

  5. gehuts says:

    Bad work to involve Machiavelli – he only got a bad name because politics was thought to be governed by the prevailing ‘in theory’ catholic morality of the time

    He was only advising rulers how to survive and govern well

    A Campbell is alot more culpable in the Blair crimes than Machiavelli was for the Medicis’
