“The scandal was deemed by the British House of Commons as a deliberate act of criminal malfeasance on Gordon’s part and an abuse of position by a public official to receive gratification. Ms. Rewcastle took the heat off herself and her husband by gallantly defending Gordon, saying, “He definitely needed a cleaner when in London, and it was part of his expenses entitlement”
Souce: The Third Force
The Third Force (TTF) is a propaganda blog, says Clare Rewcastle Brown.
According to the Chief Editor of Sarawak Report, TTF “is not a news portal, but a habitually libellous propaganda blog that shouldn’t have been cited by any newspaper.” Ironically, this lady chose to air her fury via Free Malaysia Today (FMT), a Nelson Fernandez run portal that received RM12 million from John Soh between the years 2009 and 2014.
Even more ironical is the fact that the article was written by a Nawar Firdaws, an FMT columnist who was seen intimately dancing with the DAP’s Zairil Christopher in several photos (below) at a drinking hole in the Hartamas area. Despite repeated claims by bloggers and freelance writers of the illicit love affair, FMT and the DAP remained tight lipped about the whole thing and went so far as to censor reports that even so much as mentioned Zairil’s name for several days.
Now, doesn’t this go a long way to show just how credibly and morally unsound FMT is? And is it just a coincidence that Nawar, having been accused of flirting with someone known to be a Lim Kit Siang apologist and stooge, was Ms. Rewcastle’s choice of a ‘journalist’ to take pot-shots at TTF?

After all, it takes one fake news portal to know another, which explains just why FMT religiously features claims made by Sarawak Report, including the infamous one where Ms. Rewcastle ‘mocked’ PAS president Dato’ Seri Abdul Hadi Awang for failing to sue her.
The said article, published by FMT on the 8th of April 2017, quoted the disgraced British journalist as saying that PAS failed to sue her despite threatening to do so. The Sarawak Report chief editor was referring to a letter of demand that Hadi’s United Kingdom (UK) lawyers issued her portal on the 13th of December 2016.
“They threatened to sue me within a week if I didn’t do lots of things in mid-December… but didn’t,” she said. Continue reading
