Frank Field : "Miliband Should Run for Leader"

Remember Guido’s 2005 prophecy?

Frank Field is calling on David Miliband to run now, he condemned Gordon as
“a candidate whose hands have been on the steering wheel for the last decade”

Labour’s Yoda said his party’s best hope lay in the

“younger generation, in a candidate who is not linked in the public mind with what will soon be seen as stage one of New Labour’s journey.

Step forward, David Miliband.”

Why wait? Gordon will not win an outright majority at the General Election, because he cannot be a “renewal” candidate. Why wait until you lose to go to the next generation?

Sleazy Levy Shaky

Reports are reaching Guido from different directions as to the increasingly erratic personal behaviour of the man at the centre of the Loans for Lordships scandal.

Well the mental pressure must be immense, what will his defence be? Guido fears it may all get too much for him in the way that it did for Ernie Saunders. Whatever happened to Ernie?

Valentine MPs

Sky’s Adam Boulton has compiled a list of the most fanciable MPs for Valentine’s Day. No real surprises; the ladies side is topped by Julie Kirkbride and Caroline Flint, the himbos are headed up by Nick Clegg and Angus MacNeil.

This is another small step forward in the Guidoisation of democracy. When the chairman of the Lobby starts doing totty-watch pieces to camera, victory will be total…

Douglas Alexander Listens

Douglas Alexander is said to be furious that his attempt to introduce trials for his poll-tax-on-wheels scheme has been derailed by a Downing Street e-petition, which is approaching one and a half million signatures – up 100,000 in one day.

“We cannot be seen to bend, but we have to listen. There is a difference between listening and capitulating,” said an anonymous government source yesterday. The unnamed source (not a million miles from Douglas Alexander) is said to have claimed that “whoever came up with this idea might be a prat”. Guido emailed his friend Tom Steinberg of MySociety for a comment about that on Monday, but unusually no reply has been received from Tom. He is presumably very busy.

Ooofy Wegg-Prosser is the “web-genius” at No. 10. He apparently saw the e-petition plan as an answer to the interactivity and popularity of WebCameron and, err, Guido. Well that worked brilliantly didn’t it Ooofy?
