Oh dear. It’s a full blown scandal!

It’s goes from bad to worse for Mayor Cock Up and his new spin doctor, Matt “Page 3” Baker.

It was revealed last night on the BBC’s North West Tonight news show that a Labour councillor in Rochdale who has been SMEARED AS A PAEDO by Baker will be starting legal action for lbel against him next week!

See this legal threat in all its glory. Just follow this link: BBC North West Tonight – Baker paedo smear story and the fun starts at about 8 minutes in.

We understand Baker has spent the last three days and a considerable part of his fee from Mayor Gullible trying to stop this being broadcast. Tragically he failed!

We also understand that while Baker told Rochdale Online last week he had “no recollection or record of sending this email [smearing a Labour colleague as a paedo]”, Baker has now claimed to a BBC reporter that his email account must have been “hacked”!

What will his tall story be next week?

Your caring, sharing, sleuthing BRISTOLIAN has managed to track down some information on the fake internet accounts run by Mayor Sleazeball’s new spin doctor, MATT “PAGE 3” BAKER when he was employed by Rochdale MP, SIMON DANCZUK.

It seems Baker and Danczuk first met when working on The Big Issue In The North in the late 90s. Danczuk left to set up VISION TWENTYONE, a social research company, with RUTH TURNER who went on to be Tony Blair’s director of government relations and the chair of his Faith Foundation.

The company, which specialised in using government cash to set up citizens juries to come up with ways of improving communities, went tits-up when the Labour government cash finally dried up in 2012 OWING £222,000. Danczuk is quoted as describing his business flop as, “a difficult experience but I’ve learned a lot of lessons from it.”

So that’s all right then.

Baker, meanwhile, went to work at MANCHESTER BUSINESS SCHOOL until the pair became reacquainted in 2007 when Danczuk was selected as Labour PPC for Rochdale and Baker started working for him.  Although it’s unclear whether Baker was also working for the Business School at the same time. Efforts to establish his period of employment there are currently ongoing.

The BRISTOLIAN’s been told that even in 2007, “most of Matt Baker’s activities for Danczuk seem to have centred on the press and on ‘BLACK OPS.’”

Indeed, Baker was forced to admit that one particularly virulent contributor to the popular ROCHDALE ONLINE forum, a ‘MR PHIL SEDGLEY’, was in fact him! He was also using several other PSEUDONYMS  to attack opponents both within and outside the Labour Party. While actual people in the Labour Party were often bemused when challenged over letters to the press that had appeared in their name that they clearly had no knowledge of!

Then there was ‘RUTH LUGER’, who was especially nasty.  This turned out to be the wife of his boss at the Business School and it’s almost certain that he wasn’t just using her name but also her account.

When Baker was confronted on the phone about ‘Ruth Luger’ he’s alleged to have BURST INTO TEARS and begged that it didn’t go any further because he was sure he would get the sack and he had just become a father!  No action to stop Baker appears to have been taken.

During the general election campaign in 2010, Baker turned more attention to the local press.  He invented several names for himself with which to bombard the Rochdale Observer and others with stories and letters.  Among the names he was forced to admit were actually him were ‘SEAN CAIRNS’, ‘WILLIAM RILEY’ and ‘HARRY RUSH’!

He is also suspected of using many more fake identities. They all ‘lived’ in properties that were either empty or didn’t exist at all and he was able to get away with it because the papers only published a road name rather than a number. All these MADE-UP letters and stories attacked opponents rather than supported his own candidate.

At the time Baker was living in neighbouring CALDER VALLEY and he had also become the campaign manager for one of the candidates in the Labour selection battle there. This started turning nasty too.  Baker was assumed to be behind much of the poison that had been injected into proceedings and was quite often turned away from Labour Party meetings.

The names he was using to write to the ROCHDALE OBSERVER even started to appear in the HALIFAX EVENING COURIER. Again, always attacking opponents.

So with Baker now installed in the hot seat in Bristol and running his campaign, it’s pretty clear what type of campaign we can expect from Mayor Smear isn’t it?


George Ferguson leafletHurrah! George’s first mayoral campaign leaflet has appeared on the streets.

No doubt it’s been really carefully thought through by his dodgy new spin doctor MATT “PAGE 3” Baker so it looks exactly like something from the Green Party?

“Do you want a career politician running Bristol taking orders from a party leader in London?” it asks.

Er, no we don’t Matt, you huge plonker. But neither do we want a career politician running Bristol taking orders from a BENT NEW LABOUR SPIN DOCTOR from Rochdale, thanks.

Apparently needing to top-up his paltry MPs salary of £67,060 plus generous expenses, Baker’s former  boss, Simon Danczuk, bagged himself a lucrative NON-EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR gig back in 2013 when Shine Bid Services paid him £1,000 for a couple of days work a month over about 6 months. This salary works out at a very tasty £125k a year pro rata, considerably more than the majority of his Rochdale constituents could expect to earn.

Shine Bid Services help unnamed clients secure funding – usually from government agencies – and they make a big deal of the fact their name NEVER appears on any bid. “We are the back stage assistants,” gushes their website, “shying away from the spotlight to ensure you are always the star of the show.”

Which is all very convenient for an MP keen to sell their influence but keep any of the gory details away from prying eyes. Because, while Danczuk declared  in his Parliamentary Register of Interests that he worked for Shine Bid Services, he DID NOT MENTION any clients he represented or helped get government contracts or funding for.

Of more interest to us in Bristol, where the Baker’s pitched up, is the fact that, Danczuk had two staff registered with the House of Commons authorities with Parliamentary passes and access in 2013. One of them was Matt Baker (based in the North West not Westminster) who on his own Register of Interests made a NIL RETURN.

This is rather odd as Baker’s partner Margaret Quinn works for, er, Shine Bid Services!

So it was all very cosy in Rochdale wasn’t it? Let’s just hope Baker hasn’t brought these bad habits to Bristol then.

MAYORAL ELECTION: will George make a tit of himself?

Given Mayor Sweary’s outbursts over the last few days, no one can deny he’s not in need of a spin doctor.

So step forward Matt “PAGE 3” Baker who’s been employed by Mayor Desperate on a part time basis as one of his campaign managers for the mayoral election next year.

Matt who? That’s Matt Baker, a New Labour PR twat that, until earlier this month, had been spinning like a broken top for weirdo Rochdale MP, SIMON DANCZUK.

Admittedly, Baker’s done a fine job promoting Danczuk on the national stage as a COMPLETE NUTTER obsessed with paedophilia although he’s had less luck with Danczuk’s amply proportioned selfie obsessed wife, KAREN.

Unfortunately, not only was Danczuk far better known for his wife’s tits in the tabloids than his crappy right wing politics and overheated populist anti-paedo campaigns but Baker’s time with Danczuk has ended with Karen running off with her personal trainer! Much to the tabloid’s joy it must be said.

Baker, in his final job for Danczuk then, had to put it about that the MP was suffering from “DEPRESSION”. Translated from Nu-Labour PR drivel-speak, this roughly approximates to “My boss is a sad old man with a limp dick”.

Clearly such exotic experiences will do much to liven up Bristol’s mayoral election. As will Baker’s taste for setting up fake internet accounts during elections. According to Rochdale Online, Baker operated no less than FOUR fake accounts during the 2010 general election. So look out for those dodgy Twitter accounts talking up George and be sure to say a big hello to Matt!

We also understand Baker likes sending letters to the local press accusing members of the Labour Party he dislikes of having sex with underage girls. A matter currently in the hands of Greater Manchester Police “at a senior level” would you believe?

Oh, and finally … It’s rumoured Baker wants to keep his move to Bristol quiet, so please don’t tell anyone!
