Romsey Redhead Emails (Again)

Over at Sandra Gidley MP’s blog there is some debate about another complaint by her about a Tory “smear” leaflet which she says constitutes “a personal attack” that pains her. Some (not Guido) have questioned the veracity of her account. So I suggested she fax or email me the smear leaflet. Last night she replied thus;

“I can assure you that I am not in the business of lying – life is too short. I will get the leaflet faxed to you and hope that you will show yourself to be an honourable gentleman (nay – even an honourable rogue) and broadcast the fact on your web-site… “

No sign of the offending leaflet yet… fax number is 070-9201-2337 in case you have lost it.

UPDATE: Tory campaigners email to insist no such smear leaflet, no use of the offending “What has Sandra Gidley done about MRSA?” phrase. Its 2 days since Ms Gidley denied lying and told me she would get the leaflet faxed over. No hurry. But I will be mentioning it every day.

The Campaign for Sir Peter Stringfellow

Buried in the Electoral Commission’s records is evidence of another generous donation to the Tories from the great entrepreneur Peter Stringfellow. It is well know that he has long supported the Tories, can always be seen at social events and is great fun. Guido is amused to think that a little bit of the money he gives so charitably to the young ladies at the Cabaret of Angels ends up in Tory coffers. Peter Stringellow’s achievements, indeed his life, rising from grim Northern poverty to London riches, Mediterranean yachts and popular fame is an incredible British success story. It sets Guido thinking, why has the man not been honoured for what he has achieved?

I should at the outset however declare that Guido and Stringy share a mutual interest in the welfare of our god-son, and I like to think that the young lad has the benefit of the moral guidance and experience that only men of the world like us can offer (in addition to Lego toys).

Nevertheless, even if that were not the case, I would still argue that Peter Stringfellow is a great part of Britain’s cultural life. A generous supporter of many charities as well as an integral part of London’s tourist trade, contributing mightily to the nation’s invisible earnings and balance of payments. The list of his charitable endeavours is surprisingly long – did you know he had done work for the Commission for Racial Equality? Were he a more boring captain of industry making widgets instead of the world’s most famous nightclub owner I have no doubt that he would have been knighted by now. Politicians are always recommending lesser non-entity donors for gongs. I think it is way past time that Mr Stringfellow heard the words “arise Sir Peter”. Shame on those who so enjoy his hospitality and support for not having put him forward yet! It is more evidence, as if more evidence was required, that political correctness is out of control.

Quote of the Day

David Cowling, the BBC’s head of political research, in an internal memo…

“It seems to me that the London bubble has to burst if there is to be any prospect of addressing the issues that have brought us to our current situation. There are many millions of people in the UK who do not enthuse about diversity and do not embrace metropolitan values yet do not consider themselves lesser human beings for all that. Until their values and opinions are acknowledged and respected, rather than ignored and despised, our present discord will persist. Because these discontents run very wide and very deep and the metropolitan political class, confronted by them, seems completely bewildered and at a loss about how to respond (“who are these ghastly people and where do they come from?” doesn’t really hack it). The 2016 EU referendum has witnessed the cashing in of some very bitter bankable grudges but I believe that, throughout this 2016 campaign, Europe has been the shadow not the substance.”
