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.

Chris Bryant talks to the Times Diary about a famous gay actor:

“I don’t think I’ve had sex with him. He says we had sex in Clapham. I’m fairly certain I’ve never had sex south of the river”



Progressive Inclusion Champion says:

Great to hear Carswell call for inclusive policies and that UKIP must stand for first and second generation immigrants as much as the English.
