Dacre’s Downfall

Posted on 18 January 2010 | 3:01am

Now come on folks, let’s calm down a bit before this gay Paul Dacre thing gets out of hand.

I mean the guy’s got family, and even though the boys went to Eton, where they’re taught to be tough out there on the playing fields, we don’t know for sure how they will cope with this.

It’s ok when Die Mail goes  for me, because I’m used to it and I’ve got a thick skin and a sense of humour.

Paulipoos has neither. The lack of thick skin explains why he never puts his head above the parapet to defend his evil paper and its lying campaigns against anything that is decent and good in Britain. The lack of humour is reported by all who work under him. Not a barrel of laughs.

So I am just issuing a warning that he might not be able to cope too well if he sees the video doing the rounds on Youtube which seems to have been inspired by my Dacre blog last week. You may remember I reported the view of a psychologist that  Obergruppenfuehrer Dacre’s hate-filled coverage of me is driven by the homoerotic grip I might have on his fantasies.

Now look, I was just being a bit light-hearted about one of the most evil men in Britain. But to take this, as someone has done, and set it to a scene from Downfall, with Dacre as Hitler, and subtitles suggesting his hate, and all the viciousness in his paper, is born of his unrequited love for me, takes it a bit far.

Still, it is funny, and so you can make your own minds up, I feel I should allow you to see it here, and then pass it on to your friends.

Hate Mail. Be proud of it.

    What a wonderful way to start the blogoweek. Hilarious. Absolutely hilarious. And so believable

    Keep it up. And as you found at OT on Saturday, the media have no idea how much the public dislike and disrespect them. Their coverage of your appearance at the inquiry, and the inquiry more generally, was the latest eg of bias. I read in a German newspaper last week that Iraq’s economy is growing faster than at any time in history and that the deaths there are lower than since pre Saddam. I cannot claim to read every UK newspaper but I have certainly head nothing to that effect here.

    Whoever put that together deserves the Order of Lenin! I saw the Nick Griffin one, but this is funnier. And the great thing is that because I have no idea what Dacre looks or sounds like, because of his paper, I imagine him to be like this

  • Dick the Prick

    ‘One of the most evil men in Britain’!!!! A bit of hyperbole perhaps but still quite amusing.

  • Sherlock

    Personally I liked the abuse of Oborne, though the casting wasn’t too good as that actor didn’t look like he’d lunched well.

  • Ray Vaughan

    As a complete aside, where is George Osbourne these days? Is he being kept in a locked room, out of the way?

  • Brian Hughes

    Tee hee! Poor Mr Dacre, how awful to go through life without a sense of humour. No wonder the paper he edits contains so much bitterness and envy.

    But I have good news. Although the Mail is Britain’s second best selling newspaper it still only reaches about one voter in ten and I know one regular reader who doesn’t believe everything she reads in it.

    So, unlike Mr Dacre apparently, we live in hope…

    Give it a rest Alastair! It sounds like you’re the one with the obsession with Paul Dacre, rather than the other way round. You never shut up about him. He’s obviously got under your skin!

  • Allan Macrae

    Just been watching your former colleague Mr Powell. Interesting to see you both attacking the former ambassador, Mr Meyer, whose evidence made me understand rather better why Prime Ministers might want to bring their own trusted advisors rather than rely on people like him. What a creep!

    Hi Alastair, I’ve been thinking how Blair should answer this ‘growing’ thing that the enquiry is obsessing on. He should simply say: ‘as sanctions eroded and inspectors were not allowed back and cooperated with fully, the threat could only continue to grow. This is what I interpreted from the intelligence information and the message I was trying to get across to the public; that if we did not face up to this threat the programmes would only grow’.

  • Patrick James

    I bet the staff at the Mail love the vid almost as much as Dacre loves AC.

    Do you honestly feel the whole sorry saga of the invasion of Iraq was ‘decent and good’, that not just the deaths of many British servicemen but of several hundreds of thousand ordinary Iraqis was ‘decent and good’, that cribbing from a decade-old thesis found on the net to cobble together a half-hearted justification for the invasion was ‘decent and good’, that the hounding of the pensioner at the Labour Party conference was ‘decent and good’? Or Blair exempting Formula 1 from the tobacco ad ban for a £1 million backhander from Bernie Ecclestone? Do you honestly think that was decent and good? If so you really must be a sandwich short of a picnic rather as I have long suspected Blair was.
