Slowly…

Anthony Wells Goes Corporate

Tuesday, September 27, 2005

From the Tory website:
The Constitutional College of the Conservative Party has, in a postal ballot, voted for the proposal to change the rules for electing the Party Leader, but by an insufficient majority to effect the change.

Party Chairman, Francis Maude, said, “both MPs and the voluntary party have… decided to stick with the old system. It’s been a worthwhile debate and we’ll now get on with electing a new leader.”

Number in favour of the proposal: 611 (61.0%)
Number against the proposal: 389 (38.9%)
Number of MPs in favour of the proposal: 132 (71.4%)
Number of MPs against the proposal: 53 (28.6%)
Number of volunteers in favour of the proposal: 446 (58.4%)
Number of volunteers against the proposal: 317 (41.5%)
Number of Peers and MEPs in favour of the proposal: 33 (63.5%)
Number of Peers and MEPs against the proposal: 19 (36.5%)

Let Guido do an Anthony Wells style analysis (he uses computers, I’m using whiskey) – 71% of MPs think the activists are too stupid to be given a vote and 58% of the activists agree.

Blunkett and the Young Blonde – No Denial

How does he do it? Theories:-
  • Hung like a donkey?
  • Good in dark bedrooms?
  • Sensual fingers from sliding them along braille means he can tip a girl over the top digitally?
  • Some girls like weirdie beardies?
  • He lies his way into their affections?

More ideas in the comments please.

[Hattersly joins the Blunkett is a liar chorus.]

"Bollocks to Blair" is Illegal

George in Washington

Gorgeous is enjoying his new celebrity status as the darling of the U.S. left and his tour will culminate with his return to Washington for the big anti-War demo today with his new friend, Jane Fonda.

But his previous visit to Washington may come back to haunt him, the American Speccie (not to be confused with our own Sextator) reckons he lied on oath to that Senate Committee. Guido is shocked, not.

Hat tip : Theo Spark

Update: Hanoi Jane was a no show. She made some feeble excuse, but the real reason is thought to be that she has been tipped off about George.

Modern Conservatives Coming Soon…

Shock : Politician in Honest Reply Sensation

The Boy Miliband has shocked the whole of Westminster by admitting to a 180 degree U-turn in policy. “We were wrong and it would endanger votes at the next election” he admits. The last bit, although true, Guido made up. Still he is being half honest, which is a 50% improvement on most politicians.

David Canzini CCHQ

David Canzini leaves CCHQ tomorrow (to marry Vanessa apparently). He was responsible for the Tory campaign in marginal seats. An admirer of Machiavelli, he failed to emulate his hero successfully, but he claims to have pioneered the Machiavellian use of those annoying push-polling telephone techniques – “Would you vote Labour if they changed their policy from eating babies to only eating toddlers?” Ah well, smile and dial…

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
