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.

Boris on his fellow Islingtonista Emily Thornberry:

“It was an entirely run-of-the-mill English townscape, with some straightforward words to go with it. There was no obvious insult, no abuse, no overt sneering. She might have got away with it entirely, had some alert blogger not spotted it. He instantly detected the coded message that Emily Thornberry was sending to all her right-on, bien-pensant, Labour-luvvie friends in Islington, or wherever else it is that they follow her on Twitter.”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
