The Big Red Book of New Labour Sleaze

Have just finished Guido’s last contribution to the new expanded follow-up edition to our last bestseller, The Big Red Book of New Labour Sleaze produced by writers from across the blogosphere. It should be in bookshops in three weeks, conveniently just in time for Brown’s coronation. It will of course include more Brownite misdemeanours that we may have over-looked in the past.
So Guido’s focus is back on the blog and political tittle-tattle just in time for the fun to begin with the next round of Loans-for-Lordships interviews. Guido has not missed the fact that Blair’s people have been re-bailed, with the police looking set to strengthen their case before charges are brought.

Have no fear, charges will, one way or another, be brought.

Prize Competition : Whodunnit Quiz

Yesterday’s competition to win a copy of the book of the film Taking Liberties drew plenty of entries. Some demonstrated great wit and inventiveness. Most, although emotional, failed to wish Prezza to “get well”. Which was what was requested.

Stroppycow wished him well, as did Lord Elpus, but that was it out of 78 entries. On balance Stroppycow takes it (particularly after noting her other two entries). Email your address and the book will be in the post.

Today’s prize is more of a whodunnit quiz and will go to the first person who correctly answers all 4 questions.

(A) Who helped Nick Robinson get his scoop that brought about an injunction?

(B) Who is her partner?

(C) What firm does he work for?

(D) Name a prominent client of that firm.

In the comments please – first winner announced tomorrow morning.

A ‘senior Conservative party official’ passes judgement on Theresa May:

“She is boring. A technocrat. She is Philip Hammond with a fanny. Not interesting, but rendered interesting by circumstance. And that circumstance is that she is a woman. And in an age when the Prime Minister gets it in the neck for refusing to wear a fucking T-shirt that says he is a feminist, that is a rocket boost right underneath you.”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
