Belinda Oaten on "The Ordeal"

“Well I think when you go through an experience like that, when it is, literally, splattered all over the tabloids…”

On BBC Radio Four “Women’s hour”

"Some Problems with the Script”

Kennedy’s spokesman’s euphemism has the potential of legend about it. “Too blind drunk to read it” just does not have the same ring. Guido is wary of mocking Kennedy, in fact if you are reading this Charles – lets do lunch – Friday is always good for me. Push the boat out, polish off some of the the good stuff. Sod ‘em. You are just not cut out for a career in after dinner speaking – before dinner speaking maybe…

Guido once gave an after-dinner speech sober – it was my wedding speech. Never again.

Blair Should He Stay, Or Should He Go?

Pop over to GuyNews.TV and see for yourself.

Should He Stay, Or Should He Go?


The voice-over is so good, you have to wonder - did Blair do it himself?

If You Missed the Show Last Night…

Hang Out the Bunting

Propeller-Head Wonk Watch: The new Director of Demos, Madeleine Bunting, is leaving Demos to go back to the Guardian. If this story seems familiar it is because she has only just arrived from the Guardian.

Don’t expect much of a whip-round for a leaving pressie Madeleine.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
