Tony Blair’s Blogsite is Up

Peace in the Middle East? Like y’know, This is the time for everyone to get real.” Guido kids you not, he really does say that. Guido will try to cope with the competition.

He has also set up a Sports Foundation as well to guarantee himself front row seats help disadvantaged kids. Guido expects this to result in civil war breaking out in the Lawn Tennis Association with an invasion threat from the Bowling League. He has a dossier proving that they covet the lawns…

UPDATE : Guido’s understanding is that this is being paid for out of a £400,000 subsidy from the British taxpayer. Roughly equivalent to the cost of two Blair speaking engagements.

Aussies Makes Ear-Bogey Eating an Electoral Issue

The Aussie Liberals are making an issue of the Labor party leader’s caught-on-camera ear-wax eating habits. Their latest attack advert features ear excavation and digestion.

You don’t think the Tories might make an electoral issue here of caught-on-camera bogey eating do you? There was a famous incident. Featuring an Aussie soundtrack, you can see that video again:

Aussies Makes Ear-Bogey Eating a Political Issue

£24,000,000,000 of Public Money is a Matter of Public Interest

Yesterday the FT lost a High Court battle to publish the investment memorandum being circulated in the City for Northern Rock. In it was revealed that by the end of this year £24 billion will have been borrowed from the Bank of England by Northern Rock.

It also revealed that possible options might involve continuing public money supporting the private company for years. These are vast sums under consideration. Gordon Brown refused to answer legitimate questions from Vince Cable about this yesterday. Northern Rock injuncted the FT, and got the memo removed from a U.S. hosting service where it had been uploaded yesterday.

It is public money and the public have a right to know what is going on, as incidentally do shareholders because arguably there is currently a false market in the shares. The reasons for this being suppressed are not commercial, they are political. Everybody in the City already knows what is in the memo. The government just doesn’t want the political embarrassment. Schillings are acting for Northern Rock trying to suppress the memo, which is all over the internet. One copy which might last longer is being hosted in India on Yahoo. Their offices in Mumbai will be closed by now, so Schillings might find it difficult to get it removed quickly. Don’t worry if it goes missing, another will pop up somewhere like China or Australia.

UPDATE : Link is now dead, traffic overwhelmed bandwith limits. working. It will no doubt pop up somewhere else.

UPDATE II : Schillings got the Indian site deleted. You can still find the memo here www.Banks-Implode.com, and many other hosts.

The "Top Secret" Menu at Chequers is Emblematic of Brown

The retreat of Gordon into the bunker has happened faster than predicted even by his worst enemies. Yesterday’s FT article by Sue Cameron was spot on. Gordon doesn’t have a vision beyond stuffing the Tories, with no genuine sense of the national interest, just the narrow party interest. Soldiers forinstance are merely handy photo-op props, under-funded and under-equipped. Cabinet government means government by his cronies in the cabinet. The cabinet is fearfully inert, unsure whether to continue the New Labour reform agenda of Blair, with more choice and reliance on the private sector, or revert to the top-down, centrally planned 1940s model. The Brownie clique of second raters itself is unsure what vision to offer.

The promises of open government and a new Gordon who had changed after the long march to oust Blair now ring hollow. An emblematic example of this is the determined resistance to revealing who ate what on the Chequers menu. The LibDems and the Tories are asking on behalf of the taxpayer who is dining at their expense.

Brown is blocking, quite wrongly, FoI requests, parliamentary questions and such like. Why?

What paranoia stalks government that makes it is a state secret to know who Gordon breaks bread with on the weekends?

Quote of the Day

Labour’s Austin Mitchell muses on the campaign:

“What’s the problem? No use pointing at the leader. Too late to change and unnecessary for Miliband is doing well at Question Time. His problem is connecting with the real world. He doesn`t speak people and his protective team of naive kids are playing West Wing rather than letting the leader relate to real people. We could point at the party, shrunk in numbers and enthusiasm because everything, from policy formulation to candidate selection, comes top down rather than bubbling up from below so campaigning becomes the opium of members deprived of any real role, though they`re not even sure what they’re campaigning about, with or for, but its role is marginal.”
