A source close to those booing schoolchildren tells me they also sang: ‘Mr Blair, we don’t care, you’re wearing Cherie’s underwear’ until they were made to stop. Spin on that…
The depressing prospect of however many years of Blair followed by Prime Minister Brown and his dour Scottish socialism fills many with dread.
Guido wants to leave the country as well…
Fruits of Your Labour!
Labour swept the board in the last General election and we’re expecting more of the same this time round. Therefore we’re paying out on all bets on Labour to win the General Election with still 7 days to go until polling day!
Lynton would be pleased except for one thing, the Tories are actually going to lose.

“Introduce a new award for Phoenix Entrepreneurs to encourage positive public recognition for individuals whose first business did not succeed but who have come back, worked hard and built successful enterprises.”
Given the recent demise of Phoenix MG Rover, surely their choice of words is more than a trifle insensitive?

From the ministerial code of conduct: “When advice from the Law Officers is included in correspondence between Ministers, or in papers for the Cabinet or Ministerial Committees, the conclusions may if necessary be summarised but, if this is done, the complete text of the advice should be attached.”
The Cabinet was misled, it did not see the full advice. Well, lets be honest, would you show Clare Short or Robin Cook the advice on the eve of war? Of course not, but this is supposed to be a democracy.
Strip joints are all the rage in Tory circles: the other night, Baroness Thatcher, visited Stringfellow’s Club, yet more evidence of her good judgement and support for Tory entrepreneurs. Which brings me once again to Guido’s ongoing campaign for a knighthood for Peter Stringfellow. 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.

Lord Glasman tells it like it is:
“The first thing is to acknowledge that Labour has been captured by a kind of aggressive public sector morality which is concerned with the individual and the collective but doesn’t understand relationships.”

We also need Zil lanes.
