The odious flannelled fool himself ...
Ah well. Remember what McDonnell told that audience back in 2015? Here it comes: “Harry Cole will replace Sun political editor Tom Newton Dunn … rejoining the paper from the Mail on Sunday where he has been deputy political editor since 2018 … He was previously Westminster correspondent for the Sun after leaving political blogging site Guido Fawkes. He has also worked as contributing editor for The Spectator”.
Ha ha ha ha ha Harry Cole. Who couldn’t edit his way out of a paper bag. Who has been pretending to be a journalist ever since, as sole author of the Tory Bear blog, he called the phone hacking scandal disastrously wrong. Who claimed that being a contributing editor to the Spectator would open the door at any party, just before it failed to get him access to a private event hosted by Steve Coogan on behalf of campaigning group Hacked Off.
... and one of his greatest scoops (like heck)
Master Cole has continued the unintentional hilarity by telling “I want to thank Tom Newton Dunn, who … gave me a shot in the Lobby”. I say, is that legal? But Sun editor Victoria Newton, recently named in court documents relating to more of those pesky phone hacking claims, is more than happy to have the principle-free Cole on board.
The only problem is her detachment from reality: “Harry started his career at The Sun, and in his inimitable, mischievous way has firmly established himself as the scourge of politicians, breaking a string of fabulous scoops”. Like the one about Corbyn, the Privy Council, and Short Money? Cole couldn’t score a scoop in a tub of Ben and Jerry’s.
Meanwhile, the Mail on Sunday needs a new deputy political editor, and Cole’s former pal in the service of the perpetually thirsty Paul Staines at the Guido Fawkes blog, Alex “Billy Liar” Wickham, is at a loose end after BuzzFeed ended its UK political operation.
Why is the press stuck in an increasingly downward spiral? I couldn’t possibly comment.
So one far right, lying, hypocritical tory gammon replaces another far right, lying, hypocritical tory gammon.
Planet Murdoch running out of morons.
He, like his former boss, look like prime candidates for terminal weight related health issues. Any of which can't come a moment too soon. A repulsive, talentless, noxious alt-right Slug
Judging from today's failed Tory smear, I wonder whether Cole will have his arse handed to him by Starmer or cost the Sun a pretty penny in libel expenses. Or both.

Tell me more! I seem to have missed something, unless its the Mad Nadds thing but done by Harry "Boris was shagging his missus, the cuck" Cole.
A face you could never tire of stamping on.

Smeared in fresh dogshit
I took the witless tory stooge Harr Cole to IPSO over the Court Jezter story. It took three months of fighting the Sun's paid ombudswoman and her lawyers. I was told I had won in late November and that IPSO would release it but I found out they intended to bury it over Christmas. The Sun was to apologise on its front page, for the first time, which they did. They might as well have used invisible ink it was so tiny -a 6pt para buried on the front page. The adjudication appeared on Page 2, three days before Xmas 2015. December. However, the little old lady they thought they were dealing with, turned out to be ex Labour PRO retired from 1980s (moi), who promptly got in touch with Andy McSmith of the Independent and gave him an exclusive."Gotcha" ran the splash in the Indie which was promptly picked up by the Guardian, Mirror, Huffington Post and the BBC. Jeremy's office were informed but they did not respond, which hurt. Eventually James Schneider and I got to talk in 2017, and I was able to help a little with bits of PR from a distance. But I am afraid they never really harnessed the professional PR goodwill that was out there on the left, so under the cosh were they poor things, untrusting & eventually stuck in a bunker. They also had so many paid for employees working against them in Ian McNichol's appointees, and a load of dissembling PLP MPs, rotten to the core plotting & tripping them up. No one could have survived that and the attacks in the Guardian were often just as bad as the Sun. Vile Bodies all.

Thanks for an outstanding and informative comment.
Suggestion: Run it past Starmer's office to test his response.
More like 'Hank Cuckold'.
De piffle shags his (ex)bird and cuckold still writes fawningly about him. Was 'hank' de piffle's'fag' at Eton? It'd explain a fair bit, like.
