Here’s Gordon…

The Dead-Tree-Press in the shape of the Guardian’s Martin Kettle and even the Daily Mail have hopped on the Where’s Gordon?™ Meme. Particularly enjoyed this morning’s Where’s Gordo game featuring a naked Gordon- which seems to have been pulled from their website this afternoon. Did it displease Dacre?

The shiny all new GordonBrown.org and GordonBrownforBritiain.com* websites will launch tomorrow. Remember the denial put out by Silverfish, about buying domains on behalf of Gordon? Silverfish’s Mark Lucas claimed it was speculative, nothing to do with Gordon, they were building up a portfolio of internet domains and flying pigs etc.

In truth they were acting on the direct instructions of Gordon’s charmless spinmeister Damian McBride, to buy up websites for Gordon’s campaign. All will be revealed tomorrow. Guido hopes Silverfish come up with something better than “Dave the Chameleon” this time. Gordon needs all the help he can get…

UPDATE : ConservativeHome is reporting that the bogeyman will be doing photo-ops in Stevenage and Basildon tomorrow, the seats of Labour MPs Barbara Follett and Angela Smith respectively.

*There are a few others as well. Silverfish bought some of them off lucky owners for substantial sums.

New Labour is Washed Up

Official Logo Change Signals New Labour is Dead

Here is Labour’s refashioned logo to go with the new Labour party website launched today. Nowhere on the website will you find the old New Labour logo.

The Red Terror begins…

Why No Reporting of Prezza’s Resignation Statement?

He has made one y’know…

“To have been deputy leader and the longest serving deputy prime minister is a matter of great pride to me. This government is testament to the fact that it is possible to apply traditional Labour values in a modern setting. I passionately believe that it will continue to do so under a new leader and deputy, and that we have the values to convince the British people that we deserve a fourth term in government.”

No mention of all the perks he’ll miss…

Bad News Burial Attempted

Nick Clegg has pounced on the announcement that ID cards will cost hundreds of millions more than budgeted. The announcement was held back until today for some reason…

The Speech He Should Have Given…

GuyNews : Blair’s Speech

After his barnstorming party conference speech maybe Guido’s expectations were too high. A whimper rather than a bang?

The speech he should have given is on GuyNews.TV.

LabourHome 2.0 Re-Launches

That process of renewal for New, New Labour is all about us. The frankly, until now, faltering LabourHome site has re-launched. Last time Guido looked it still had Labour Beta 0.0 policies and articles advocating socialism. How so very 80s…

They do make the point today that they are the only open-access tool for grassroots activists. ConservativeHome and LibDemVoice allow user comments but have editors. Anything goes on LabourHome and anybody can put up articles. The new site allows some editorial intervention in that better articles can be bumped up front and centre by the editors. This might spare online political junkies the necessity of wading through endless articles on “bringing back socialism” for more current issues.

Not sure the best way to relaunch is to put a picture of yesterday’s man on the front…

UPDATE : 16:30 GMT site crashed. Didn’t something like this happen on the first launch day?

Quote of the Day

Former Miliband guru Arnie Graf reveals Labour’s disconnect with the working class:

“On one of my trips to the U.K. in the autumn of 2013, I bumped into one of Ed’s strategists in Portcullis House. He asked me if I was assisting the staff on Ed’s trip that was to take place in a few days to one of the regions. I told him that I did not have knowledge of his planned trip.

He told me that Ed was going to give a talk at the region’s annual fund raising dinner and that prior to the dinner he had invited the media to join him at a local coffee shop to listen to a conversation he planned to have with a minimum wage worker. The point of the conversation was to show how difficult it was for a minimum wage worker to get on in life.

There was only one problem. No one had been able to locate a minimum wage worker for Ed to talk with.”
