The End for the Endogenator?

The deputy-chancellor Ed Balls has, despite mounting a legal challenge, seen his seat wiped out by boundary changes. Is this the end for the endogenator? The Liberati have an idea to help him get round the lost seat problem. He implausibly claims that: “This is a real disappointment for local people across our district.”

As reported here yesterday, it is official today:

Hello Nigel, Guido Calling

Guido has been trying to get an explanation from Nigel Griffiths into how he knew, and told the BBC, that the CPS had finished their investigation into Loans for Lordships amd “decided there was no evidence to proceed”. The CPS and Scotland Yard were not in agreement.

The Scotsman is now also on the case. As yet none of us have managed to get any follow up comment from him. It is not simply a case of “no comment”no one has answered his office phone for three days. Where are they?

Chris Bryant talks to the Times Diary about a famous gay actor:

“I don’t think I’ve had sex with him. He says we had sex in Clapham. I’m fairly certain I’ve never had sex south of the river”



Progressive Inclusion Champion says:

Great to hear Carswell call for inclusive policies and that UKIP must stand for first and second generation immigrants as much as the English.
