Not sure how one could libel Mitchell. Nothing anyone could say would plumb the depths of what people actually feel about him.

Esther McVey could make swift political return if David Cameron appoints her to the Lords

Ousted Esther McVey is in line for a swift political return as David Cameron dishes out life peerages.
Voters in Merseyside kicked the former bedroom tax minister out of Wirral West on Thursday.
But Tories are urging the Prime Minister to appoint her to the House of Lords in his dissolution honours list.
Among them is senior Tory MP Nigel Evans.
He said of Ms McVey: “She is top quality and we can’t afford to lose that sort of talent. I think she would make a great contribution from the other place.”
But the move would infuriate voters in Liverpool and across the country after former television presenter Ms McVey became unpopular as the Government’s ­advocate for the hated Bedroom Tax.

The PM is also set to recommend knighthoods for a string of Tory MPs to help ease their path into lucrative posts in City boardrooms.
Others who could be set for peerages in the dissolution honours – expected to be announced within weeks – include former Lib Dem cabinet ministers Danny Alexander and Vince Cable.
Labour figures likely to be offered a seat in the House of Lords include Dame Tessa Jowell.
But the honours will reignite controversy over the House of Lords, where peers can claim tax-free daily allowances of £300 – even if they only remain in the building for a few minutes.
There are already more than 840 peers – an increase from 708 a decade ago – but there is only space on the House of Lords benches for about 400 of them.

Weird how some individuals seem to possess an irrepressible yet at the same time inexplicable ability to rise to the top. This woman certainly seems to have some.... leverage?

A Dutch expression [omhoogvallen wegens gebrek aan gewicht] would translate more or less like: falling upwards because of lack of weight.

It's also known as "Peter Principle": The Peter Principle is a concept in management theory in which the selection of a candidate for a position is based on the candidate's performance in their current role, rather than on abilities relevant to the intended role. Thus, employees only stop being promoted once they can no longer perform effectively, and "managers rise to the level of their incompetence."

I like that a lot.

I remember an interview with the much maligned England football manager Graham Taylor, he basically said that managing the national team was the culmination of a career that had been on a permanently upward trajectory, and when he then experienced failure at the top level it was something that he had no experience of - consequently he was totally unequipped to deal with it.

No one who is voted out should ever be elevated. The people have spoken, and someone should listen to them.

Those who resign, take the Chiltern Hundreds, or do not stand / retire, are a very different proposition.

She's only been selected as a candidate, she's got to win the seat yet!  With the way things are going for the Tories, you never know, they may not vote for her, don't think if George Osborne was still there he would have got in anyway, think that is why he shoved off.

Esther McVey to be the new Works and Pensions Secretary ! Only after Justine Greening resigns from Government after refusing the job, so Esther McVey is second best.

It's taken nearly nine hours but May has just appointed her first new woman Cabinet minister of the day. No.10: The Queen has been pleased to approve the appointment of the Rt Hon Esther McVey as Secretary of State for Work and Pensions.

So it was announced a couple of days ago that EMcV was on the board of The Samaritans! Good grief talk about taking the p, it's almost as mad as KM being ambassador for missing children.

Anyway it would seem she has today resigned.

Hmm. Interesting play, Cambridge Analytica. Press conference announced for tomorrow with their new media advisor: the former Conservative parliamentary candidate for Brighton, Clarence Mitchell. Do remember that they 'never get involved in UK politics' etc etc.

Thank you AndyB


Hearing taking place today, snipped from that...


Facebook data 'almost useless' for Cambridge Analytica campaigning work, says CA spokesman

Cambridge Analytica has scheduled a press conference for this afternoon so that it can respond to whatever gets said by Aleksandr Kogan, the Cambridge academic who supplied it with Facebook data, at this morning’s culture committee hearing. Clarence Mitchell, a former BBC journalist who now works as a PR specialist, is due to present the company’s rebuttal.
But Mitchell has been engaged in some prebuttal too. He was on the Today programme this morning putting the company’s case and claiming that it had been the subject of a “quite astonishing torrent of unfounded allegations and conspiracy theories” over recent weeks. Here are the main points he made.

 




The hearing is starting now.
Damian Collins, the Conservative MP who chairs the committee, opens by saying there are three main issues they want to address.
First, the Facebook data breach.
Then the use Cambridge Analytica made of that research.
And finally, the committee would like to learn more about Kogan’s work generally, Collins says.

       
2h ago 10:43
We’re still waiting for the hearing to start.
In the meantime, here is the Observer story that first revealed how Facebook data was being used by Cambridge Analytica.

Revealed: 50 million Facebook profiles harvested for Cambridge Analytica in major data breach



And this is how it starts.
 
The data analytics firm that worked with Donald Trump’s election team and the winning Brexit campaign harvested millions of Facebook profiles of US voters, in one of the tech giant’s biggest ever data breaches, and used them to build a powerful software program to predict and influence choices at the ballot box.
A whistleblower has revealed to the Observer how Cambridge Analytica – a company owned by the hedge fund billionaire Robert Mercer, and headed at the time by Trump’s key adviser Steve Bannon – used personal information taken without authorisation in early 2014 to build a system that could profile individual US voters, in order to target them with personalised political advertisements.
Christopher Wylie, who worked with a Cambridge University academic to obtain the data, told the Observer: “We exploited Facebook to harvest millions of people’s profiles. And built models to exploit what we knew about them and target their inner demons. That was the basis the entire company was built on” ...
Documents seen by the Observer, and confirmed by a Facebook statement, show that by late 2015 the company had found out that information had been harvested on an unprecedented scale. However, at the time it failed to alert users and took only limited steps to recover and secure the private information of more than 50 million individuals ...
The data was collected through an app called thisisyourdigitallife, built by academic Aleksandr Kogan, separately from his work at Cambridge University. Through his company Global Science Research (GSR), in collaboration with Cambridge Analytica, hundreds of thousands of users were paid to take a personality test and agreed to have their data collected for academic use.
However, the app also collected the information of the test-takers’ Facebook friends, leading to the accumulation of a data pool tens of millions-strong. Facebook’s “platform policy” allowed only collection of friends’ data to improve user experience in the app and barred it being sold on or used for advertising. The discovery of the unprecedented data harvesting, and the use to which it was put, raises urgent new questions about Facebook’s role in targeting voters in the US presidential election. It comes only weeks after indictments of 13 Russians by the special counsel Robert Mueller which stated they had used the platform to perpetrate “information warfare” against the US.

MPs question academic who supplied Cambridge Analytica with Facebook data

Aleksandr Kogan, the Cambridge academic who harvested Facebook data that was subsequently used by Cambridge Analytica, is about to give evidence to the Commons culture committee.
You can watch the hearing here.
And here is a Guardian backgrounder about his role in the affair.


How academic at centre of Facebook scandal tried – and failed – to spin personal data into gold

Facebook data 'almost useless' for Cambridge Analytica campaigning work, says CA spokesman

Cambridge Analytica has scheduled a press conference for this afternoon so that it can respond to whatever gets said by Aleksandr Kogan, the Cambridge academic who supplied it with Facebook data, at this morning’s culture committee hearing. Clarence Mitchell, a former BBC journalist who now works as a PR specialist, is due to present the company’s rebuttal.
But Mitchell has been engaged in some prebuttal too. He was on the Today programme this morning putting the company’s case and claiming that it had been the subject of a “quite astonishing torrent of unfounded allegations and conspiracy theories” over recent weeks. Here are the main points he made.

  • Mitchell said Cambridge Analytica did not misuse Facebook data.

 
There was no widespread, massive harvesting of Facebook data. It was received by Cambridge Analytica under a perfectly legitimate contract, a non-exclusive contract, and Cambridge Analytica respects data protection responsibilities. It was given assurances by Dr Kogan that the full consent of all of the people he had analysed was there ...
The moment it became clear that Facebook were unhappy, at the end of 2015, the company immediately began to delete that raw data, as per their request, and subsequently did a lot more work to make sure there were no derivatives of back-ups in its systems, and subsequently gave Facebook a certificate to that effect.

  • He said that Kogan data had been “almost useless” for campaign purposes.



[*]He said that Kogan data had been “almost useless” for campaign purposes.

 
The company worked on the Trump campaign, but used much more traditional methods. In actual fact, the irony here is the data at issue turned out to be almost useless. Nor was it used on the Brexit referendum.

  • Mitchell defended the decision of Alexander Nix, CEO of Cambridge Analytica until he was suspended recently after the Channel 4 News expose of its methods, not to give evidence to the culture committee. He said that would not be appropriate given that Nix was being investigated by the Information Commissioner’s Office and the Electoral Commission.


  • He refused to fully defend Nix’s claim that Cambridge Analytica had not worked with Facebook data.
