Where’s Gordon?™ Day 30

Gordon is in Brussels and then going to Scotland campaigning, missing from PMQs yet again.

Where’s Gordon? tracks Gordon’s campaign trail as he tries to shore up the Labour vote. Yesterday he was, as always, at a photo op at a school…

Stringfellow Not Standing for Tory Mayor

Bit hungover* after having dinner with Peter Stringfellow at his new club The Wardour. He gave a rousing speech to an enthusiastic crowd from the Young Britons’ Foundation who were there to celebrate May Day in a plutocratic capitalist style. Alas, Stringy declined to throw his hat into the ring for Mayor of London because he told Guido, at 66 he needs all his energy for his 24-year-old fiancée.

Guido’s campaign for a knighthood for Peter in recognition of his contribution to the cultural life of our nation continues. Sign the petition to the Queen and show your appreciation. Do it, and right this wrong.

*Have an interesting video to upload from the night…

Shop-a-SpAd : Maguire Grasses Blears’ SpAd

Hazel Blears’ taxpayer-funded aide is working a little too hard on the motorbiker’s campaign says the Mirror’s Kevin Maguire.

Fresh from flogging campaign T-shirts from a sweatshop, her SpAd Paul Richards is working on her leadership campaign on the taxpayer’s time.

Maguire suggested he improperly emailed him about a political issue on his government computer, Richards replied: “I will check with the Propriety and Ethics Team of the Cabinet Office. But I’m sure this is legitimate activity for a special adviser.”

No if, no buts, it isn’t.
