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?

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.

Damian McBride offers some more of his helpful advice:

‘Mr Miliband will not survive the televised leaders’ debates trying to have it both ways on every policy from Syria to an EU referendum. The prime minister may be entirely wrong on issues such as HS2, but at least his position is clear.The Labour leader’s attempt to keep his options open is all very well, but to what end? If he thinks he can avoid taking any big decisions until he’s securely installed in Downing Street, Mr Miliband unfortunately hasn’t a prayer.’



Owen Jones says:

We also need Zil lanes.
