Blair Heart Flutters

Story on CBS that Blair to undergo operation for “Heart Flutters”

UPDATE: He is to undergo a catheter ablation. Nothing to worry about. See here. If it was me I’d be shitting myself – involves numbing the groin, wire catheters in your groin. It can be heated -STOP I DO NOT WANT TO KNOW ANY MORE.
UPDATE: 1/300 chance of death.

UPDATE: Tells Marr “Will not serve fourth term” – Doh!
UPDATE: “Brown in danger of laughinging to death” denied.

Sunday Times Leaker

Police have questioned a 23 year-old woman from the cabinet office in connection with the theft of documents. I hope she is innocent. The Sunday Times has been getting loads of government-embarrassing scoops of late. Such as the change to the compilation of NHS productivity figures to make them more productive, the civil service attack on No. 10 spin etc. (Could someone email or voicemail Guido her name – we won’t reveal the source.)

Milburn Sends an Uncoded Message – Why?

In a code that Guido has managed to decipher, Alan Milburn said it would be ‘an enormous privilege’ to lead the party. That suggestion pisses off supporters of the Chancellor, who regard their man as having bagsied the top job whenever it becomes available. ‘It would be an enormous privilege to be Labour leader, but there isn’t a vacancy’, Mr Milburn said at a fringe event last night, adding: ‘Who knows what the future is going to bring?’

Tough code eh? Are the Blairites deliberately using Milburn to wind up Brown, to focus his ire away from Blair?

F****** Fox Banned

The League Against Cruel Sports’ fox puppet give-away has been banned by Labour’s conference authorities in case it incites the hunt protestors. (Guido is not making this up – check the link.) Delegates who bought fox puppets from the League yesterday are having them confiscated when their bags are searched on arrival and have been informed that they can have them back at the end of today.

So it was nothing at all to do with a drunk the night before last pursuing a horrified Cherie up the hotel stairs with a fox puppet on his hand. Nothing at all.
UPDATE: Police have now given permission for the League Against Cruel Sports to bring their “provocative” Basil Brush-style toys into the conference centre – only nobody has bothered to tell the Group 4 security guards who are continuing with their “only doing my job” antics.

Kilroy woz ‘ere

AN online poll asking readers to vote for the best candidate for Prime Minister has been scrapped – after Robert Kilroy-Silk came top. The Ultra-Thatcherite Bruges Group, a Euro-sceptic think-tank, withdrew the results from its website saying they had been “sabotaged”.

Demonstrations Most Newsworthy thing at Labour Conference



Iraq & Fox hunting are the serious issues deserving nude demonstrators and Iraqi Coursing Club jokers. Rely on Guido for the important news. Oh, Blair bored on about not being sorry for arresting Saddam. “I’m like any other human being, as fallible and as capable of being wrong. ” Say it ain’t so Tony?

Straw: “It was quite dark..”

Oh there is so much I’m tempted to pun, so much, so difficult to restrain myself. Particularly following lunch…

Mr Straw shook the dictator’s hand during a reception for South African President Thabo Mbeki and was filmed by a BBC Newsnight team which was following him around the UN. The footage was broadcast last night and the Foreign Secretary said later: “Because it was quite dark in that corner I was being pushed towards shaking hands with somebody just as a matter of courtesy and then it transpired it was President Mugabe.”

Brown its all “tittle-tattle”

Excellent, tittle-tattle is my speciality. Guido’s bull-shit detector has been flashing red as the comrade’s conference kicked off. Blair telling Frostie it’s all nonsense and soap opera, Brown this morning saying taxes had not gone up and the general secretary of the Labour Party attacking “those people in the political elite who would rather that politics was left to them.”

One bit of rare honesty came from Margaret Hodge, admitting that many traditional Labour supporters are racist and that the government must no longer send mixed messages out of fear of losing their support. She didn’t say they wear appalling shell-suits and some of them don’t even know how to use a knife and fork properly, but you knew what she meant.


Noticeable lack of speakers using the word “comrade” – where have all the socialists gone?

Tony Clarke MP – Liar and Hooligan

You read it here last week. Northampton South’s Labour MP Tony Clarke has admitted that he was involved in “minor hooliganism”. He was a young Inter-City-Firm thug. By ‘minor’ he presumably means he didn’t stab anyone. So when last he week he denied being an ICF thug, he was LYING.[…]

The Boris Backlash Starts Here

Let me be the first to say I’m getting fed up with Boris. He has now started his own blog, to go with his Spectator editorship, occasional quiz show appearance, assorted bits of journalism, fan club, cross party following and safe seat.[…]

Lord Razzle Dazzles

Lord Razzle got a cheer at the Lib Dem conference by telling the beardies and wooly hat wearers that the Tories would never form a majority government again. I suggest he pops down the bookies and cleans up laying bets for optimistic Tories – Labour Party 1/4, Conservative Party 3/1 Liberal Democrat Party 50/1.[…]

Bravo! Bellingham’s Belle is the ‘Insider’

The Eastern Daily Press got the scoop
Norfolk MP Henry Bellingham emphatically denied yesterday that a member of his staff was a mole who gave inside help to the hunt protesters who burst into the House of Commons on Wednesday.

Mr Bellingham said he had spoken to his aides at Westminster – a secretary and a researcher – and both had denied giving any assistance to the demonstrators.[…]

New Modern Tory Image – ‘Commie’

Now I’m not a Charlotte Street brand ‘n advertising guru like Lord Saatchi, but the re-branding of the Tories seems a little politically retro. It looks even a tad Soviet to me. Or is that deliberate? Compare these images. It is to be officially unveiled at the upcoming Tory Party conference, I’m not sure how it will go down with the true believers…

“Insider” – Telephone Trace

Otis Ferry and the rest of the invaders’ phone records are being trawled to see if they had any contact with a particular person in the Palace of Westminster. You have been warned!

Quote of the Day

Heather Wheeler talks to Burton Mail about her tweet…

“It was a tongue in cheek pop after the European Parliament tweet – it was purely that. I also wanted to congratulate Team GB on a brilliant result and thirdly congratulate the Commonwealth countries who also did very well. Fourth, I am also looking forwarded to establishing new trade agreements. That was it – nothing more. Let’s just enjoy the summer!”
