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.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
