Guido previously offered dinner as a reward and now the good people at NO2ID and Privacy International are offering £1,000. Unlike them Guido won’t ask you to donate the reward to charity. There are sommeliers waiting…

Watson Family Fortunes – Good News / Bad News

Guido likes to bring good news when he can. Today’s good news is that following on from Guido’s revelation last week that Joanne Watson had pocketed £15,000 for attending four meetings, she has decided not to stand again “due to family commitments”. Nothing to do with Guido’s story being picked up by the local press and her being castigated as a result?

Still at a cost of £3,723 per meeting, local taxpayers will be more than relieved to see the back of her… However there is some bad news, another little Watson piggy wants to suckle on the teat of the taxpayer. Joanne’s husband, Dan Watson has announced that he is standing for the gravy train Broadwaters ward. He obviously won’t be helping out with family commitments. Well they have to make up the lost income somehow, don’t they?

Is there anyone in Tom Watson’s family who doesn’t have their snouts in the taxpayer’s trough?

Chairman of PLP Dismayed With Government

When Tony Lloyd, the chairman of the PLP, warns that the Government needs to “clarify what it’s there for” you know they are in trouble. Did anyone ever ask Blair to clarify what he was there for?

Everyone knew what Thatcher was for. Would she have tolerated Chinese goons stomping around Downing Street while she looked meekly on? In 1980 she sent in the SAS to deal with Iranian goons when they started pushing hostages about.

After Boris becomes London mayor the Labour Party will realise that it is facing defeat. The battle for the post-Brown leadership of the Labour Party begins May 2.

Tony Blair threatens Ed:

“If you had a strong political lead that was combining the politics of aspiration with the politics of compassion, I still think that’s where you could get a substantial majority…  If I ever do an interview on [the state of the Labour Party], it will have to be at length…”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
