Competition Winner

Some cracking entries for the sing-a-long song competition for the campaign to bar Alistair Darling from every pub in Britain.

Guido tried imagining a drunken bar singing the songs to make his judgement. Commendations to Alex, and Anon. Mitch is the runner-up with his re-working of Abba. The winner with appropriate new lyrics to the tune of the Wild Rover is Marquee Mark which the Washington Post also likes calling it a “catchy” ditty.

If Mark emails Guido his address a copy of John McCain’s new book Hard Call: Courageous Decisions by Inspiring People will be sent to him.

The Devil has a round-up of campaign news, with video clips from PMQs, Sky’s report on the campaign and pictures from pubs around the country.

Francis Elliot reports on No. 10 strategy meetings:

“When discussion veers to subjects that Mr Crosby thinks of concern only to the political and journalistic classes, he treats the offender as a pub bore with a tart request to “pass the beer nuts, mate”.”



Alexrod says:

It’s money innit.
