Paddy Power Says "Its All Over", Paying Out Labour Bets

Paddy Power are paying out straight Labour to Win bets already placed.
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.

MG Ooops

Tucked away inside the Labour business manifesto, is the commitment to
“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?

You Can’t Fool All of the People All of the Time

Q. Is Tony Blair a liar?

When ICM asked, 44% of all voters agreed that he was, two-thirds of Conservative voters saw him as a liar, half of all Liberal Democrat voters and even a fifth of Labour voters think he is a liar.
Gordon Brown, however, told reporters this morning that the entire cabinet had numerous discussions on Iraq, with numerous documents to consult, including the Blix report, the Jack Straw document, the six-point initiative, a legal document on the use of force “in addition to” the attorney general’s one-page advice. “I not only trust Tony Blair but I respect Tony Blair for the way he went about that decision,” he bullshitted.

What I Say "Three Times Is True"

“I have never told a lie. No. I don’t intend to go telling lies to people. I did not lie over Iraq.” Tony Blair

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.

The Campaign for Sir Peter Stringfellow

The Indy’s Pandora column reports that Tory vice-chairman Andrew Rosindell received a donation from a local company called Secrets. A firm of that name operates “gentleman’s clubs” across the south-east. Rosindell says “I’ve no knowledge of lap-dancing. The donation came from a Romford businessman, who wanted to help with a civic pin badge project. It was a community thing, and nothing political.”

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.

You can learn more from the great man’s life by reading his surprising and entertaining biography “King of Clubs”. Pledge your Support for the Campaign!

Quote of the Day

Liz Kendall is asked by Tom Newton Dunn if she would ever ban the Sun from one of her press conferences:

“If you stripped naked and ran in front of me, Tom, I might have second thoughts about it, but apart from that, no.”
