Blair Blesses Obama


Guido’s co-religionist, Tony Blair, was in Washington today to bless the Obamessiah. Tony was witty, articulate and respected.

Guido never liked Tony, but he wasn’t a national embarrassment, he was Prime Ministerial. Can you imagine Gordon stumbling over his words, banging his head against the microphone, calling the new president George. You get the cringe-worthy picture. No wonder Obama wanted Tony.

No Tory Totty Pictures from the Ball

You will be disappointed to know that Guido has obtained no photos from last night’s Tory Black & White Ball. Cameron and Coulson were determined that no glossy glamorous photos should leak out in these credit crunch times…

Any co-conspirators in a position to help?

UPDATE : Not a single snap has been forthcoming. The prospect of power clearly brings discipline. Guido remembers when the Tories were fun…

UPDATE II : Rumour has it that the Daily Star has pictures tomorrow. Sam Cam is finally a Star-bird. She will be thrilled.

Go On Dave, Give the Hugh Grant Speech

So the Americans arranged for the torture of a British resident and held him in Guantánamo Bay without charge, but all this must remain secret because the Yanks have threatened to stop sharing intelligence with Britain. That would directly threaten Britain’s national security, David Miliband has told a judge. So that is it as far as this government is concerned.

David Davis is demanding a Commons statement from the government on the ruling, calling it “a matter of utmost national importance”. Nothing however from Dave, so far, on the subject. When the above scene from Love Actually played in cinemas, the audiences spontaneously applauded and cheered. That apolitical audiences at a romantic comedy respond like that tells us something profound, Britons know in their hearts, across the political spectrum, that successive governments have been too subservient to U.S. interests. Humiliatingly subservient.

Guido is pro-American, don’t misunderstand. There is no doubt that Anglo-American friendship has served the world well for a century. Friendship does not require subservience. Friends speak frankly, friends respect each other for telling the truth to their face. Go on Dave, give the Hugh Grant speech. It would be great for Britain.
