WHEN HARRY MET TALI. OH THE LIES !

The Sunday papers are strange when you find yourself in them and I can confirm that they don't like criticism, The Sunday Times carries a story about me and the Harry business which condemns me quite strongly.

Other papers TV journalists and letter writers such as The Guardian, New Statesman, Jon Snow, Max Clifford etc. are on record as sharing my scepticism over the whole affair so I ask myself why do these mighty Sunday blats want me dead ?

The Times says nothing new and continues to call me a Labour Aide but here's what it's about.
He, (Kelly) is an associate of guess who ? yes Wendy, she should sack him they say ! from what ? I say, I don't hold any position and they know that, they are in the gutter again, the persecution of Wendy is running out of steam if this is what they are reduced to, The Times, once called "The Thunderer" used to have a good reputation.

The Guardian carries a piece by an ex Army soldier who seen action in Iraq and Afghanistan and has written a book about it which has him saying ' the Harry at war adulation has caused anger at the grass roots where the hero prince doesn't wash'

The new Statesman carries Harry's spoof diary where he says the following among other things :- "I hate England, I hate the fact that I might never kill again, and I hate those poo-shites in the press, even though the only reason I got to fire the big gun was because they were filming me" and "I wish they'd left me there alone taking out the Taliban one Terry at a time. A lone mercenary can definitely win an Afghan war, I saw it in Rambo 3. Doesn't sound as if they buy it does it ?

One part of this elaborate confidence trick according to today's papers is already beginning to work, army recruitment figures are on the rise ! The second part of the 'quid pro quo' though, Harry's rehabilitation from gossip column fodder to soldier prince is stuttering, that will be harder as more and more people rumble the con trick.

The SNP had to get into it right ? MSP and protector of British Royalty Keith Brown (Falklands Veteran) said my remarks were "appalling" and "this man has no idea what it's like to serve on the front line" he also tries to link it to Wendy.

Where are these modern nationalists coming from ? the real SNP would not lift a finger to help the British Monarchy and now they put forward this forelock tugger Brown to help the prince, what happened to independence ? where are the real SNP ?
He is of course right about one thing I've never been on the front line, so I will defer to his military experience and ask him this question -

SNP MSP Keith Brown (ex Army) can you confirm to me that front line troops all operate with their own personal bodyguard of Gurkhas and SAS men just like our own 'one of the lads' Prince Harry ?

Terry:

You are famous. Well done. Obviously Rupert has been briefed by Mossad and the CIA about you exposing the truth. Perhaps it is now time to challenge Gordon Brown for the leadership, as he is leading your party to a general election defeat. 'Vote Terry for a socialist future'. Maybe even Fidel and Raoul will hear of you, and invite you to Cuba.

Get over yourself!
It is just a "space filler", no one in the big wide world really cares what you think about anything.
You are not an important person Terry no matter how much you might want to believe it.

Macnasty said...

Councillor, it isn't a vendetta so don't flatter yourself.

The British press have always had a weakness for clowns - you're just the latest in a long line stretching back to Will Somers.

You can make out that your comments are noble all you like. Everyone can see you for what you are. But you, like the worst politicians (and calling an ultra-small fry bigot like you a politician is being generous), are past caring.

Serpico said...

Atticus is a comment column poking fun at one and all. The hacks at the ST were merely pointing out the buffonery so prevalent on this blog.

Pongo said...

Dog bites man.

If the Telegraph carried the guardian stories then that would be news. Simply repeating the stuff from the papers that you read and that agree with you simply re-enforces the idea that these ideas are popular.

If they were the Guardian would have better sales figures and be in profit.

Infamy infamy! They've all got it etc.

Rupert obviously sees me as a threat to society. Still it was a nasty piece from what used to be a great newspaper.

I thought you might say something about Harry.

Cllr Terry Kelly said...

(Anonymous) 09/03/08

It wasn’t a space filler and it wasn’t about me. If you don’t know that there’s not much hope for you.

Take some time and see if you can work out what it was about

Cllr Terry Kelly said...

(Macnasty) 09/03/08

Clowns indeed, you don’t even seem to have a clue what the article was really about.
If you genuinely think that I think it was about me then you have a lot to learn.

Is it any wonder that the media can con people like you about Harry when you can’t even spot something as unsubtle as this.

Cllr Terry Kelly said...

(Anonymous) 09/03/08

The truth seems to have upset you.

Cllr Terry Kelly said...

Atticus columns are a dime a dozen but I couldn’t find a reference to me in Sundays.

Cllr Terry Kelly said...

“If the Telegraph carried the guardian stories then that would be news”

And vice versa right ?

I trust the Guardian and you the Telegraph I’m happy with that, the Sun, the Star, The Daily Mail are with you as well so I’m more than happy.

Cllr Terry Kelly said...

(Julius C) 12:43

Good gag but not appropriate, it’s not me they’ve got it in for.

Do try to keep up.

Macnasty said...

Kelly @1.39 and various others.

'The (Sunday Times) story was not about me.'

Terry, the first line of your post says 'The Sunday Times...condemns me quite strongly.'

Whilst we accept that you normally contradict youself, it isn't usually as blatant as this, so what caused the re-think?

Meanwhile, for the sake of us political innocents, do explain who you decided the article was really getting at.

"Atticus columns are a dime a dozen but I couldn’t find a reference to me in Sundays."

You didn't look very hard:

Cllr Terry Kelly said...

Serpico - I meant the newspaper it's the same stuff - a good example of what has happened to a once great paper.

Rumbold said...

Terry:

"Still it was a nasty piece from what used to be a great newspaper."

Which bit of the piece did you find objectionable? I thought that it sums up your views on the matter rather well. Enjoy it- it is your moment in the Sun (or rather the Times)>

Cllr Terry Kelly said...

(Rumbold) 17:53

The whole piece was objectionable because it was bogus.

It wasn’t even designed to harm me it was designed to harm someone else, but you already know that don’t you.

Macnasty said...

Cllr re my post 10th March @ 2.30.

Will you please answer, explain the apparent contradiction and tell us all who the Sunday Times was targetting....in your opinion

Terry

I notice on more than one occasion you have mentioned that Harry had SAS bodyguards whilst in Afghanistan. Tell me, Terry, how useful do you think a mortal human being is when a mortar or rocket is fired at your position? Humans can't deflect explosions you know. Bullets yes, explosions no.

Cllr Terry Kelly said...

(Macnasty) 11/03/08

Read the article again, if you can’t see the real target you are an idiot.

Cllr Terry Kelly said...

(Anonymous) 12/03/08

I can’t quite figure out what you are getting at. Perhaps it would be easier for you to grasp if I said that Harry was not ‘one of the lads’ as the media are trying to make out because, ‘the lads’ don’t have personal bodyguards

Macnasty said...

Cllr read my post 10th March @ 2.30

I asked two questions. You've ignored one and called me an idiot for not knowing the answer to the other.

C'mon, O' Mouth of the Clyde, cast your light on my darkness.

Answer the bloody questions.

Cllr Terry Kelly said...

(Macnasty) 14:42

There appears to be only one person who can’t figure it out and I’m in no mind to help you.

Rumbold said...

Terry:

You mean that they were attacking Wendy A? You should not be so modest- maybe they were just attacking you.

Cllr Terry Kelly said...

(Rumbold) 18:41

Not much gets past you does it ? I only wish ‘Macnasty’ had your forensic skills.

Rumbold said...

Terry:

"Not much gets past you does it?"

Happily not.

Macnasty said...

Kelly 18.41

Nope, you're wrong Terry. I've read it again and the Times really was having a pop at you, just as you claimed in your original post.

Warhol said we all have our 15 minutes of fame. Seems yours consisted of being made to look a muppet by one of the worlds great newspapers

Cllr Terry Kelly said...

(Macnasty) 12/03/08

I’ve given up hoping that you would be able to grasp what’s going on in what ‘used to be ‘ one of the world’s great papers.
