‘Sir’ Peter StringfellowCAMPAIGN UPDATEEndorsed by Official Biographer

There has been some suggestion that Guido is not entirely serious in his efforts to secure a knighthood for Peter Stringfellow. Wrong, wrong, wrong, I have never felt more strongly about an issue. Peter Stringfellow deserves a knighthood.

Good to see that the Campaign for a ‘Sir’ Peter Stringfellow petition to the Queen has been endorsed by his Titian-haired biographer – Fiona Lafferty – as “long over due”. You too can sign and show your appreciation. Do it, and right this wrong.

Thoughtful and accurate piece on Tony Blair’s mastery of the dark arts of politics.

Mandelson : Buggers Up Trouser Trade

“Well I suppose I better buy some whilst I’m here,
there won’t be any in Europe after this…”
This picture was taken in Beijing during the June 2005 trip where Peter Mandelson arranged the trade deal that has resulted in a Europe that has too much wine and not enough trousers. Which is a great strategy for a party, but a crap idea for the European economy.

Mandelson has taken a three week holiday whilst retailers and consumer groups go beserk at the prospect of knicker and bra shortages. You would have thought that Mandelson would have grasped that his job as trade commissioner was to promote international trade, not block it. His free trade credentials are now as threadbare as our worn out trousers will be next year – with Chinese trouser imports reduced to one pair of trousers per four Europeans per year – no really. His abandoned free trade rhetoric has led one pro-trade group to name him as their Protectionist of the Month.

Oh Mandy, Mandy, where did it all go wrong? Instead of strutting the stage like an international statesmen with the press waiting on your every pout, your legacy will be to be remembered as the producer-protecting, quota-chopping, bra-blocking, knicker-stopping trade commissioner.

And i’ve noticed that 100% of Guido Fawkes staff are men. Looks like Guido has a woman problem. Or is it an hypocrisy problem?
