    Arguably the best post on this blog, ever. Poignant, exciting, glamourous and the last scene, disturbing for its accurate depiction of torture in Uzbekistan. At just over two and a half minutes in duration, this film must be a major contender for the Oscar shorts and a shoe-in for BAFTA. Well done.

    I see now why Agent Cameron is not coming down hard on Barlow. Barlow is a Tory and assisted in their last election campaign the BBC have just said on the 6pm news. Cameron’s attitude to Barlow is completely different to his criticism of Jimmy Carr.

    ‘During the 2010 General Election campaign, the Conservative Party announced their intention to encourage musical achievement amongst young people in schools with a competition called School Stars. Barlow appeared at a school staged campaign event to endorse the introduction of the programme by David Cameron. Barlow also sang Greatest Day at the event. When asked if he supported the Conservatives at the election, Barlow responded: “I would not be here if I was not.”‘

    Barlow also organised the Union flag waving concert for the Queen’s jubilee so acquired a lot of Brownie points in the process.

    ‘At the beginning of May 2010, it was announced that Queen Elizabeth II had asked Barlow to organise her 86th birthday party and her Diamond Jubilee celebrations in 2012. A source said: “Her Majesty has been made well aware of his charity work and the events he has put together. She knows that Gary has got the power to pull in the big names across the music industry and to ensure it’s a party to match the occasion”. This was confirmed on February 2012 with Gary Barlow being named as the lead organiser and producer of a concert that took place outside Buckingham Palace and featuring globally recognised superstar artists. Barlow said “The Diamond Jubilee Concert will celebrate the 60 years of The Queen’s reign with an amazing line-up of world-class artists coming together to play at one of the biggest and most exciting live music shows in recent years.” This concert began to take shape with Barlow at the centre of the arrangements and the force behind the staging, artists and the eventual ideas that would be used in the concert. On 4 June 2012 the Diamond Jubilee concert was held outside Buckingham Palace with it acting as a backdrop to a stage built upon the Victoria Memorial featuring artists from all across the world. The concert included music stemming from the 50’s to the 00’s with each decade of her reign reflected in the music performed. Barlow himself appeared alongside Andrew Lloyd Webber and his own Commonwealth Band to perform the self written official jubilee single “Sing” while also dueting with Cheryl Cole on the night which won praise from critics who called “the performance as [two of] the best of Britain [who] proved their pop credentials with a dazzling duet.” The reception from the concert was universal in praise for the efforts of Barlow with Prince Charles himself personally thanking him for putting together the concert.’

    JG: gottcha – I remember something about that exchange. BTW it would be useful if someone posted a Habba guide as I am confused as to who is the real Habba.

    Could not disagree more with. Chains, handcuffs and ketchup, substitute for blood not to my taste and still have no idea why it was posted here. Would seriously question the judgement of who ever thought it was a good idea for posting. Having said that, healthy to be tolerant to others beliefs, views and tastes. Just thought it was odd, because it takes away from the serious nature of work, conducted on this website. Oscar nomination? You’ve got to be joking..

    As to the content – lighten up, everyone and remember what Craig said about football matches!

    Sometimes fool I wonder if he knows himself. However he is on some kind of mission (suicide mission perhaps) because he claims victory when he has clearly lost an argument. However Habbabreak has recently come to our rescue for those tortured by the taciturn torturer. Like the radio you can turn him on or off at leisure.

    Some aspects about what he posts are more revealing than the blind adherence he shows to all things establishment. I suspect he has made his pot and runs an information-gathering business (possibly for someone else) with quite a few subservients under him. Poor things! In my non-professional psychological profile of him he is part of the pyramid of sycophancy at the top of which is the unblinking cyclopean eye of obedience.

    Fair comment. I fully understand the risk I run by posting on any website, I go on and accept the consequences wholeheartedly. As such, will still be standing by what I said, because to do otherwise would be shallow, weak and a hypocrite! As for analogy with football matches, so be it. 25 Hope this further explanation has cleared it up for you Habbabkuk (La Vita E Bella) !

    Kelly

    That’s fine! And I do sincerely welcome your ” I go on and accept the consequences wholeheartedly”; if only some of the prolific posters on here (I call them the Eminences) would have the same attitude!

    Mr Goss

    Good to have you dialoging (I wouldn’t yet say ‘debating’ or ‘discussing’).

    “However he is on some kind of mission (suicide mission perhaps) because he claims victory when he has clearly lost an argument.”

    “But surely it would be better to turn me off all the while? Are you a masochist?”

    Well there’s sod all on the telly, and I have to get my comedy entertainment from somewhere. 🙂

    In fairness there has recently been more civility in your comments (they’re not posts). Let me explain. Craig does the post, everyone else comments upon it, although you can post a comment using post as a verb. So when you write “Well, Mary – you posted the comment …” that is correct. When you write “Further to my above post …” that is incorrect. So it is all right to use post as a verb but only correct if using it as a noun when referring to Craig’s post. As you said earlier “This is Craig Murray’s blog …” We understand what you mean, but it is a good distinction for everyone to bear in mind. 🙂

  • Habbabkuk (La vita è bella) !

    Mr Goss

    Thanks for that, I’ll try to remember in future! 🙂

    PS – first useful comment from you – ever! (No, I didn’t mean that – just kidding).
