Change Has Come

One Last Encore

Guido won’t be live blogging the inauguration (yawn), turn up the volume, play this one last time as loud as possible and annoy your office lefties before Dubya exits in the helicopter.

Limo for Mr Maguire

Mirror Man in Toff Transport Shocker

Guido is feeling a little tender after last night’s “Farewell to Bush” party thrown by Tim Montgomerie. At the after-party in the Westminster Arms, Guido thought he spotted Kevin Maguire, tribune of the workers, hammer of the Cameron and scourge of the Bullingdon boys etcetera, getting into the back seat of the preferred choice of the boss class, a big chauffeur-driven Mercedes. No bicycle with driver following, nor public transport for him. Was it all a Guinness-fuelled hallucination? Surely after all he has written about Cameron’s hypocrisy, he himself would not be guilty of such hypocrisy? It is after all only a few stops on the District line to his mansion in the millionaire’s suburb of leafy Richmond

“Nothing is too good for the workers” he said testily. Guido, hopefully, was not too fuddled to video our discussion on the subject, and in the best traditions of the Mirror, this will be uploaded. As and when the headache subsides enough…

David Cameron drug policy reformer and leadership contender in 2005…

“Politicians attempt to appeal to the lowest common denominator by posturing with tough policies and calling for crackdown after crackdown. Drugs policy has been failing for decades.”



“Digger” Murdoch says:

Is it just me, or is Nigel Farage just a top hat and a monocle away from being a Batman villain?
