Guido’s Musical Manifesto

The Doors

“Yeah, we could vote for the Lib Dems, the party we believe in, and there’s a tiny, tiny risk we could let the Tories in by the back door. Or we could vote for Labour and let Bush’s Republicans in through Downing Street’s front door.”

Telegraph Endorses Anti-Political Manifesto

Alright, to be exact Christopher Fildes, the doyen of City journalists, endorses anti-politics. He also quotes from the latest poll which shows the anti-politics cause looking set to be triumphant on Thursday, remember our slogan “Don’t Vote, It Only Encourages Them!”

Now, with the finish in sight, the leaders of other parties resort to scare tactics, urging us to come out and vote for fear of letting the other side in. They have a long way to go, to judge by the latest poll from NotmeGuv, exclusive (of course) to these pages.

Unlike all its rivals, NotmeGuv covers the field. It seeks to reflect the intention of every potential elector and does not confine its results to the dwindling majority who still intend to vote. Nullists first, it says, and the rest nowhere:

Nullist 40%
Labour 21%
Conservative 19%
Lib. Dem. 15%
Others 5%

If this pattern is replicated on Thursday, the people will not have spoken but they will have made their point all the same. None of the above, they must fear, will pay attention for long.

Chris Bryant talks to the Times Diary about a famous gay actor:

“I don’t think I’ve had sex with him. He says we had sex in Clapham. I’m fairly certain I’ve never had sex south of the river”



Progressive Inclusion Champion says:

Great to hear Carswell call for inclusive policies and that UKIP must stand for first and second generation immigrants as much as the English.
