Tom Watkins tweeted a seniour politician will be outed tonight and Max Clifford said on Daybreak shocking news will be released by the BBC today.

I just can't believe it could be the popular Tory being referred to, but that seems to be the most prolific opinion on Twitter. This gets more and more bizarre.

The one with the funny rape views was Education Secretary under Thatcher.

('Funny' as in odd, bizarre, not right.)

I am not sure that is what he is particularly well known for though.

There is a Lord being named a lot on twitter which makes sense of Newsnight saying it is a senior political figure rather than senior politician.

OMG! I was not expecting to be shocked by knowing the name of the presumed culprit, but I am, massively. It goes to show paedos are everywhere...

Not Hong Kong Fooey?

COBRA met today to discuss the Ash tree problem, interesting that happened on the same day as this newsnight article.

DreamsTurnToGoldDust Fri 02-Nov-12 19:11:04

Hmm I did think this morning COBRA and the ash tree problem was a bit strange.

Yes, ash tree problem is serious but...really...

Hmm I did think this morning COBRA and the ash tree problem was a bit strange.

So did I, I thought COBRA was national security type thing?

DreamsTurnToGoldDust Fri 02-Nov-12 19:15:17

But it is all very odd, Newsnight say they are going to run this story, alledgevery d person says I`ll sue, newsnight drop his name, all seems very amaturish.

earwig1 Fri 02-Nov-12 19:16:14

maybe the cabinet met urgently about the imminent revelations, but said to press it was about ash trees...

claig Fri 02-Nov-12 19:16:17

probably gets teh name out on twitter without being sued

But sometimes, let's not forget a cigar is just a cigar. And the potential loss of between 30% and 75% of UK trees (afaik the Chilean thingummy fungus can cross species - hey, maybe it's a pinochet-led conspiracy and wasn't he mates with Maggie?) is a big, big deal.

And cobra is combined response to any largescale emergency such as the recent flooding. Is not security per se. Is only way to.quickly organise multi-agency response.

BloominMarvellous Fri 02-Nov-12 19:33:04

I can't see newsnight on the TV guide. Did they axe it?

ImperialBlether Fri 02-Nov-12 19:37:20

I thought it would be LB. There's a very nasty story about him.

ommmward Fri 02-Nov-12 19:45:13

Linky, Imperial?

(and Christ almighty, I know his family sad )

bringupthebabies Fri 02-Nov-12 19:58:00

Was all outed here last month

donnie Fri 02-Nov-12 20:01:54

Yes, imperial. LB is the one IMO

i don't think it is

MrsjREwing Fri 02-Nov-12 20:08:31

Nancy, your press, have you got info?

donnie Fri 02-Nov-12 20:09:50

That blog mentions MP and PL about whom there were rumours galore back in the eighties. some of the stuff on there is really shocking.
Nancy what is your view?
