Slowly…

Basher Davis’ ModernConservatives.Com website has now changed colour to blue. How exciting!

Anthony Wells Goes Corporate

The ever excellent Anthony Wells is now integrated into the YouGov Plc borg. Nice revamp, update your links… www.ukpollingreport.co.uk

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.

"Four More Years"

Last time I heard that chant it was at Bush’s pre-election Republican Party rally, but careful lip-readers will have noticed Cherie mouthing it on the platform during the applause for Tony. A Neo-con chant is not what I expect from our mantra-mad First Lady. Where’s Carole?

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

Horse & Hound has this article in it. Police arrested a 20-year-old girl gamekeeper for wearing a “Bollocks to Blair” T-shirt at a game fair last weekend.

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…

Nick Herbert’s ModernConservatives.com website is revving up for Basher Davis again. Not a lot going on as yet and the font it uses is “Goudy Old Style” very, errr, modern.

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.

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

Right-Wingers Hold Nose & Go for Ken

Once More unto the breach is a blogospheric redoubt of Tory refuseniks. Like World War II Jap soldiers marooned on Pacific Islands they don’t know Thatcherism is over. They are the types who argue why the Poll Tax would have

Hitchens v Gorgeous

Galloway’s post bout interview had him more full-of-himself than ever. Which is saying a lot. He was a little bit showbizzy and hoped “to take the debate to the West Coast”, Hollywood no doubt. Hangin’ with Ms Fonda has

Quote of the Day

Mary Creagh’s coded attack on Ed Miliband…

‘I want the country to be united behind a single vision, we aren’t going to do it by sort of having a Rubik’s Cube approach to politics’.
