Subject: Happy New Year

They do say a new year is a good time to make a fresh start, turn over a new leaf, make a clean breast of things.

Good luck.


Guido Fawkes Esq.

Three weeks ago a credible source told Guido that Ruth Turner was “fully co-operating” with the police investigation. This is really co-operating rather than in the sense that Chris Evans or Sleazy Leavy were “fully co-operating” before they were arrested. It is widely reported that Ruth has now retained her own legal counsel, rather than using the Labour party’s in-house counsel. A clear sign that her interests and her master’s interests have diverged.

WebCameron Co-conspirators Want Answers

This could be a Miliband-Wiki type debacle for another online politician not playing it straight with the net-roots. Already the most voted for question on WebCameron’s “Ask Dave” this week is the same one he shamelessly dodged last week. Where do the millions come from? Who is behind the offshore funding fronts? Don’t try to fob us off with an “I’m a transparent kinda guy” answer this time.

Vote here if you want answers.

Latest Tory Mayoral Candidate Throws Fedora Into Ring

Winston McKenzie is an official Tory Mayoral candidate. The former Veritas candidate lost his deposit at the general election standing in Croydon North after gaining 324 votes. This bettered his standing in Brent East in 2003 where he won 197 votes standing as the “Black Voice for Great Britain”.

Guido interviewed him and found his policies, err, interesting, he is against the congestion charge and tough on crime. He is very keen on sport, boxing in particular. Guido can’t wait for the hustings…

Re-Ask Dave

The first Ask Dave response video was a bit surreal, he said “I am the party leader who is for transparency”, this is in response to Guido’s question about mysterious backers hiding behind companies and foundations in Geneva, the British Virgin Isles and Liechtenstein. Dave went on to claim “You can see total transparency, there is no secret loans or anything like that, go to the Electoral Commission website and you can see the whole thing.”

So Guido did just that, he looked there, and was none the wiser. Which was clearly the intention of the Liechtenstein lenders. So despite Webcameron users voting for answers in droves, they still don’t know who backs the Tories to the tune of millions.

What Guido does know is that when Blair buried the British Aerospace / Saudi bribes investigation last week, the Tories were silent. Stunning. A government mired in sleaze, itself under investigation by the police for corruption, quashes an investigation into corruption. An open goal for a determined opposition surely? Nothing doing.

Wafic Said made a £100,000 donation to the Tories in February, on top of the £550,000 or so he is alleged to have given through his wife on the quiet. He was the middleman who profited from Britain’s biggest arms deal ever — “Al-Yamamah” — which involved the multi-billion-pound sale of British Aerospace fighters to Saudi Arabia. Quite a coincidence, voters might wonder if the money and the silence are linked.

For the avoidance of doubt, wouldn’t it be better to tell the voters who is, forinstance, behind this mysterious anonymous offshore lender in Liechtenstein? Fortunately a co-conspirator has re-asked Dave the same question posed last week, maybe if it gets enough votes (again) Dave will take the opportunity to bring it out of the shadows and answer it this time. Vote here if you want answers.

Cheeky Christmas

Lembit Lobbied for Cheeky Girls

Guido didn’t bother running with the Lembit / Cheeky Girl story this week. The satire / reality continuum seemed to have warped too much.
However it appears that there is a political angle, Lembit has tried to fast-track the Romanian’s visa process. The Cheeky Girls are in Britain illegally – that would make it illegal to hire them as well. Which Guido understands has been possible in the past…

UPDATE : Isn’t it an offence to offer an inducement to an MP? Do they live in his constitutency?

UPDATE II : Machiavelli points out in the comments:

The Code of Conduct for Members of Parliament:

“Holders of public office should not place themselves under any financial or other obligation to outside individuals or organisations that might influence them in the performance of their official duties.”

“Holders of public office have a duty to declare any private interests relating to their public duties and to take steps to resolve any conflicts arising in a way that protects the public interest.”

Wall-to-wall totty at the CF Christmas party, no wonder Mark Clarke, Conservative Future chairman, is always smiling. Francis Maude’s attendance meant that Guido was not the oldest party-goer. Guido left early – having not taken any Totty pictures. These were, once again, provided by a co-conspirator…

Gyles Brandreth writes in his memoirs:

“Sunday, May 10, 1998

Early start: appearing on Breakfast With Frost, to be broadcast from 11 Downing Street. The Chancellor [Gordon Brown] is grouchily amiable, but so earnest — and still biting his fingernails to the quick.

After the show, he took us upstairs to his flat. He lives above No 10, while Blair and family are in the No 11 duplex, which is bigger and more like a proper house.

I was intrigued that, when he took us into his bedroom, the Chancellor rather ostentatiously opened the built-in wardrobes, as if he wanted us to see the women’s frocks that were hanging in there.

They looked quite large, but I don’t think they belong to Gordon. I assume they belong to his girlfriend [Sarah Macaulay, who he later married].

I presume he was keen for us to know that he has one — and that she’s not a ‘beard’. I don’t think he does anything without calculation.”



The British media are Hunts says:

Now the SNP know how UKIP voters feel all the time.
