Remember Fiona Jones’ Indecent Proposal?

Fiona Jones, a former Labour MP, said last year that a senior Labour party politician, currently a cabinet minister, tried to seduce her by making her an age-old offer: “Do you know what I can do for you?”

Fiona Jones lost her seat in the 2001 general election. She has threatened to “blow the lid off New Labour’s female-friendly image and tell all about the astonishing sex-for-jobs culture in the Commons”.

So a former Labour party MP publicly claimed that a cabinet minister offered her promotion in return for sex. How many quietly accepted the proposition and in return were rewarded with promotion?

Four Shags (But Still Counting)

Sarah Bissett-Scott, says she had a two-year affair with Prezza twenty years ago. It did her career no harm, she stood a few years later (1992) as a Labour candidate and now she is a planning consultant. An area of lobbying where it must be handy to have shagged the Minister with the power to ultimately determine the outcome for your clients. She has a special interest in “Affordable Housing”, which falls under the remit of Prezza and is a government priority.

Her admission has provoked Prescott into whining “It is totally unacceptable for the Press to be trawling through lists of people, some of whom I hardly know, members of staff and family friends, offering large sums of money, making allegations without substance and major intrusions into their lives, which I totally reject.”

Not sure what he means by that, but think it means he doesn’t like it. Tough, looks like it is open season now, payback time for his years of hypocrisy.

Prezza Muddles Up Mistresses

There is a rumour going around in press circles that Prezza, alerted in advance by a journalist that he was going to be exposed, confessed to Pauline about the wrong mistress. He mangles the English language, so muddling up his mistresses would be no surprise.

Prezza Affair – Blow by Blow

  • “Tracey also revealed how she performed oral sex on him Monica Lewinsky-style in his Whitehall office.” “Sometimes they did it behind the desk, other times just inside the door.”
  • “The secret affair only ended in the LAST MONTH, not in 2004, as the Deputy Prime Minister claimed.”
  • Carried on having secret sex sessions with Prezza until just a few weeks ago. “Only stopped when they were rumbled.”
  • “He would grope her when she went into his office for diary meetings.”
  • Sex in the Admiralty boardroom, a government conference room. At it in his office at the Cabinet Office, at Admiralty House and at Dorneywood, his official country residence.
  • Tracey says he has had other mistresses.
  • Prezza lying when he claimed it ended two years ago.

Cherie’s Papal Protocal Gaffe

The Queen is apparently amused by Cherie’s stiff leg syndrome, which is obviously the reason she is unable to curtsey before her. Hilary Clinton, when First Lady, quite properly did not curtsey to the Queen either. Guido respects them for their republicanism. However, surely as a practising Catholic, Cherie is willing to show the proper respect to His Holiness?
Tradition requires Catholic woman to wear modest black. Pictured on the left is Queen Sophia of Spain exercising her Privilege du blanc as a Catholic monarch, a privilege conferred by the papacy on the historical Catholic monarchies, the Queens of Belgium and the Grand Duchesses of Luxembourg having been the other royalty granted the white privilege. Cherie appears to have seized for herself the privilege of Queens.

John Reid’s Hash Hush-Up

They kept it quiet for a few days, but yet another Blairite has been politically and personally humiliated. It is becoming noticeable how it always seems to be Blairite loyalists that are making the (bad) news. Almost as if it was an organised dirty tricks operation…


A little bit of Afghan hash is hardly anything to get bothered about. Guido’s good friend got 24 months for the posession of 23 grammes he brought back from Morocco, (for a first offence). So on that basis, time per grammes wise, Reid would only get a month. You know how it is, you go on holiday, backpacking in Afghanistan, or even visiting the troops, and bring back a little souvenir given to you by a local...

The excuses are:

  • it was “minuscule”, weighing less than one gram and with a street value of 85p.
  • it could have been there for up to 20 years.
  • he was not in the house at the time it was found and was said by sources to have “no idea” it was in a guest area.”
  • “hundreds” of people are said to have been in it over the years.
Mr Reid can not be accused of hypocrisy, he was the Cabinet’s most ardent opponent of a smoking ban, man.

UPDATE : Two months ago cannabis campaigner Jeffrey Ditchfield, was arrested and charged with sending drugs to defence minister John Reid. Coincidence? More here. Hat-tip : Onan

That Cook v Currie Cat-Fight

Woman’s Hour was brilliant yesterday, Edwina Currie and Margaret Cook on political affairs. Edwina revealed that besides John Major, she was at it with a kinky slob. Edwina gave some old fashioned advice to Mrs Cook. Mrs Cook did not take it well. Listen here (mp3)

Blogging Nick Robinson AutoCorrects

Nick Robinson is a reader of this blog and took the hint and has clarified his “bombshell” comments. He doesn’t link to this blog in his blog, yet quotes from it, a major breach of netiquette you might say, but Guido is forgiving. Since the Ashley Cole case the Dead Tree Press (and the broadcast media) have become nervous about referring to, or directly linking readers and listeners to writ-risky websites. Hence the vague references to “political websites” rather than Guido or Iain Dale. Journalists are actually ringing Guido up for quotes, which they then attribute to an unnamed controversial political website.
We need a better legal precedent, media lawyers are scaring media executives into restricting journalists from referring to risk taking bloggers. Hence the ridiculous situation with so-called blogs being established by the old media which don’t allow comments (Trevor) or don’t allow links to other websites (Adam Boulton). The Telegraph and the Guardian at least have proper blogs. The former is as boring as hell (comments : 0), the latter is noisier (comments : mad).

And finally, as to the question most journos have called to ask: no, lawyers have not been in touch. So go on, do it…

Prescott Plays Hypocritical Happy Families

Guido hears that Prezza would be wise to hide this weekend’s Mail on Sunday from Pauline. According to a usually reliable source, mistress #2 was approached by another tabloid newspaper about her relationship with hypocritical Prezza. She threatened to sue

Ken Clarke tells the Ben Fellows trial:

“The idea that I would go strolling off in order to grope a man in an office is highly unlikely.”
