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.

Dizzy has this photo of the throbbing hive of activity that is Hain campaign HQ.

Are they boxes of fake tan piled up?

Hain is still available at 40/1 on Betfair

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.

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?
