Hot on the heels of Damien McBride’s departure from the government public relations role he has fulfilled for some time Boggart Blog, thanks to our mole embedded in the government, can bring you news of a surprising and audacious move to replace McBride and his discredited sidekick Dolly Draper.
Prime Minister Gordon Brown is expected to announce in the next few days that American record producer, convicted murderer and veteran mentalist Phil Spector will take over the job of head of Communications for Downing Street.
Brown, whose reputation is in tatters following the revelation that his press team were making up scandals about leading Tories. Cameron has clap and George Osborne is a shirt lifter were two of the stories they planned to leak. What is really damaging for the government is they are so out of touch with reality they think they have to make up stories to discredit leading conservatives.
Where the NuLab media team really failed though is in admitting what they were up to and started blaming each other when uberblogger Guido Fawkes broke the allegations of jiggery pokery. In politics it is traditional when faced with accusations that they are telling tales about opponents embarrassing diseases or financial misdemeanours parties close ranks and meet the criticism with a wall of silence.
It is this failure that is though to have influenced the Prime Minister to invite Phil Spector to take the job on. Spector is most famous for shooting people or pointing loaded guns at their head but is also well known for creating the Wall Of Sound. The reason is if the government ramps up the volume of briefings on initiatives, crackdowns, schemes to save the world and justifications for assaults on our civil liberties all backed with oversized rhythm sections, saxophones and strings everyone will just start treating bad news as background music and the likes of your Boggart Bloggers and the estimable Mr. Fawkes will be left blogging in a void.
Perception is everything but deception is more.
