Leeds Lackeys Not Lovers

Guido hates following up other people’s stories but this one appeared too juicy to miss. The Observer’s Pendennis claimed that James Mckenzie, George Osborne’s new researcher, was sharing a flat with Sarah Mulholland, Blinky Balls’ new researcher.

So Guido calls up Osborne’s office looking for Mckenzie. He is not important enough to be allocated his own phone and desk Guido is told, but they will pass on the message. A few minutes later…

Ring, ring…
JM “How did you get my number?”
GF “I didn’t, you called me”
JM “Oh”
GF “It’s about the Pendennis story”
JM “Did you write that?”
GF “No, I write the Guido Fawkes blog”

After that confusing start he vehemently denies living with Ed Ball’s new assistant. But strangely he gets agitated when Guido asks has he met the lady concerned.

JM “I will have to call my office and find out if I should be talking to you”
GF “They told you to call me didn’t they?
JM “I’ve got to go”

So Guido Calls Blinky’s office…

Ring, ring
SM “Hello Sarah here”
GF “Hello it’s Guido Fawkes here, I’m calling about this story”
SM “It is rubbish”
GF “So you have never met him”
SM “I have because he is on the same course as me in Leeds”
GF “But you aren’t, haven’t..”
SM “No!”
GF “Give my regards to Blinky.

So that is that, isn’t it?

Eddie Izzard, in his thirteenth year involved in politics, says he’s not cursed because it took Sir Alex Ferguson “seven years to win the premiership so it doesn’t really matter.”



cynic says:

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
