Quentin Davies


Recommended Posts

New Labour has yet another new bruvver. And in keeping with recent treacherous Tory tradtion he's toffee'd of nose and plumby of voice (and he's even got the tolerant 'hang 'em and flog 'em views to match). In fact, he's probably the biggest right/left defecting toff ever (despite pleby 'John' being his real first name).

Apparently Europhile Quentin (comma before 'Europhile' omitted purposely) is a bit upset with Europhobe Cameron over 'Europe.' Oh diddywiddums! Odd that this is virtually the only specific rationalisation he can give for his strange leftward leap into a party that's now led by someone who's lukewarm Europhilia borders on Europhobia.

True, 'Daz' (washes greener!) Cameron does appear a little wishy washy and 'Bliarly' non-commital but if us folks stuck in the gods can see what's coming then all I can say is that Davies and chums in right front stalls have premature macular degeneration.

I'd caution any 'brother' about having a spot of breezy banter with their latest recruit over a jar in The Members Bar. Going by Quentin's Wiki resume, his new found friends will probably be 'advised' to vote for the invasion of Iran as well as have their inner most thoughts transcribed into files in Thames House and Vauxhall Cross:

He attended Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge where he was awarded a Bachelor of Arts degrees in history in 1966 and was a Frank Knox Fellow at Harvard University.

After his education, he joined the diplomatic service and was appointed Third Secretary at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in 1967, and became a Second Secretary at HM Embassy Moscow in 1969, before returning to London as one of several hundred First Secretaries at the Foreign Office in 1972.

I wonder if it was the then young Prof Pritchard who, during Quentin's punting days at Gonville and Caius, tapped him on the shoulder and asked him if he would like to meet a 'friend' of his who was coming up from London?

Careful, lads, careless talk costs elections...

One gets the impression that there are more spooks resident here:

Than either here:

Or here:

Also note that the middle building, MI6's headquarters is designed on a step-pyramid Ziggurat

Must be Scottish, then. :lol:

Is this what 'The Observers Book of Architecture' might refer to as 'Neo Babylonian?'

And does the 'Ancient Rite' have a monopoly on this style?

What do the English Lodges and the 'Grand Orient' do for a building?

"What do the English Lodges and the 'Grand Orient' do for a building?"

Some of them duck downstairs to the basement in the Great Eastern Hotel. Very Egyptian down there.

Others just hanker after the Lutine Bell in Lloyds while stilll others wander around looking for properties designed by Sir Edward Lutyens. Then, of course, there is the first building in the above list that once upon a time boasted three lodges.

And when they're not fooling around in Insurance, Banking halls or Parliament, it is because the City church bells are tolling midnight and they must return to those buildings listed as numbers two and three above -- in order to nest upside down for the remainder of the night. :lol:

Some speculation that 'the mole' might emerge in the Northern Ireland office, possibly as Secretary of State. This is most interesting (to those of a parochial, UK bent on this board - apologies to members who inhabit the far flung corners of the Anglosphere).

Last week the Lib Dem peer Paddy Ashdown was approached by the then PM in waiting (behind the back of Lib Dem Leader Menzies Campbell - ALLEGEDLY) with an offer to serve in his cabinet. The story goes that he was also offered (and declined) the very post for which Quentin is being tipped.

Lord Pantsdown in his Salad Days - it can even Happen to a 'SISSY'

Much was made of Brown's cosying up to the Lib Dems. The psephologists stated that this move was designed to put the wind up the Tories and dash their desire for an early election. The most recent MORI poll suggests there could be some mileage in this claim. And now Brown is snuggling up to Baroness Williams.

Seasoned SIS watchers, of course, suspect something else is afoot. Ashdown is, of course, a celebrity spook. He is perhaps MI6's most famous and high profile old boy. New Labour under Gordo are clearly struggling to meet their spy quota under the 'gentleman's agreement' (Tee! Hee! - Thames House) that allows Mr Happy to warm Tony's chair for a few months...

...until Daz Cameron breezes in.

Update:

Liberal short arse John Bercow once a rising star in the Tory firmament half suspected of being the next floor crossing class traitor (in reverse) by Guido Fawkes (who llooks like he won't pay up with lunch at The Fat Duck over my wager that Jonathon Powell will not be spending time at HMP over his role in the cash for peerages affair).

Poll in today's Indy shows the Tories 5 points ahead of New Labour. What's a voter to do?

As you say, Cameron is a shoe-in.

So we can all lay back and look forward to a further decade of more Punch & Judy...

Happy shouts of "He's behind you!" And, "Oh, no he's not" will occupy Partliamentarians while the great machine marches on, closing escape hatches, shutting off legislation, bringing in new ID cards... letting off the occasional scary bomb if and when required.

Belize anyone?

I suspect it will be someone more senior than Bercow (in age rather than in party position). A lord rather than a MP (once suggested as a former leader of the party). Quentin Davies is a joke and has only been used to embarrass Cameron.

Speaking of the funny walks brigade, do either of you know if our beloved former leader (call me "Tony") is a member of their set? I assume he is and that assumption had flesh added to it when I stumbled across a speech he made (obviously, I would rather drink battery acid than go in search of such a thing) when he spoke a version of George Poppy Bush's "thousand pojnts of light", except our Tone spun it. I think it was a myriad of stars in the firmanent (or something similar anyway -- can't really remember now).

I wonder what Gordon wears under his kilt? Or do you think he keep the family jewels safely wrapped up in a nice Palestinian shemagh?

Given Blair's legal beagle background I would think it highly likely he would have once rolled his trouser leg up.

Of greater interest though is Shayler'a allegation that a former MI5 colleague revealed that he had seen Blair's security file. Bambi, it appears, had been a nark since his Oxford days passing on information about student activists, and then later on about CND members, trades unionists and Militant tendency supporters.

I'd be interested to hear more on this if anyone's got it (there's an interesting anecdote about Michael Howard, Norman Lamont and Tony and Cherie which I'll share later).

PS John, Quentin did not leave to embarrass 'Daz.' Not since the days of 'Dear John' Gilbert has there ever been a more unlikely 'Brother' (and I'm not forgetting here the 11th baronet or the former Earl Stansgate).

I have also heard this story. He was originally recruited as a spy on the Labour movement. It has to be remembered he showed little interest in politics until meeting Cherie, the daughter of a socialist activist. Cherie was the one expected to have a career in politics but Tony turned out to have the skills needed to make it to the top.

What was a man who admired Margaret Thatcher (also an Oxford man) doing in the Labout Party anyway? Thatcher was placed into power by the ultra right-wing European "Le Cercle" much loved by the former minister, Alan Clark and was founded by the stiff-right-arm-saluting Archduke Otto von Habsburg and Jean Violet, a French freemason connected "Cagoulard" (much beloved by the Gestapo btw) and later an Opus Dei-ist-cum-P2 who used to work for SDECE.

Nice to know that our masters have such kindly and charitable individuals promoting their interests, init.

I often get a little bit jumpy when I see someone powerful or influential is an Oxford type and reach for my copy of The Register of Rhodes Scholar ( which costs a whopping Fifty quid to keep the rabble at bay). Three Blairs appear but not him. His best pal, Bill Clinton is, of course, a Rhodie, something that would've delighted Lord Alfred Milner, I suppose.

The fiendish plot grows clearer.

Btw, can anyone take Shayler as a serious whistleblower? Tomlinson yes. He has suffered at the hands of his former bosses who leave no opportunity open to harm him -- even after all these years. Penury has become his first, middle and last name. That's how these b*st*rds operate.

But Shayler, for all his alleged whistleblowing, spent a measly 10 weeks (three of them in remand at Belmarch) in Ford Open prison for breaching the OSA. Hardly the level of vindictiveness that we have grown to expect from our community of forgiveness-preaching spooks, is it.

Still, being a member of the 911 Truth Movement (now there is an oxymoron!), he claims he believes no planes were involved in the twin towers (rather they were missiles camouflaged by holograms), whereas it was an aircraft that hit the Pentagon and not a missile, were views he felt best able to express by agreeing to appear in a film made by, of all the possible doco-makers in the known universe, Alex Jones.

Honest former spook or disinfo artist ---- you decide.

Did Odin have a beard? I know Wotan only had one eye. Not the same but close.

But, of course, you're referring to the God of the Anglo Saxons that inhabited the region of your birth home, so I guess you know more about him than I do.

Looks more like Gandalf to me.

This is more like the Odin I know and love:
