Dealing rooms cheered as rumours swept around the Square Mile that Gordon was gone. Downing Street had to issue a denial that the Prime Mentalist had resigned. Soon Gordon, soon…
UKIP are complaining that ballot papers are being handed out folded over and people don’t realise their name is over the fold. Supporters are complaining to their party HQ that UKIP were not on the ballot paper…
The SNP are demanding the immediate cessation of automated marketing calls by the Labour party – using the voice of Coronation Street actress Liz Dawn. The calls directly market the Labour party – a breach of the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2003. Desperately deprived of supporters willing to knock on doors the Labour Party is willing to break the law…
UPDATE : Source says the Information Commissioner has already reprimanded Charlie Whelan’s Unite union yesterday for doing automated calls.
So in search of the truth and information as to what is really going on the British public turns to the state broadcaster, the venerable BBC, the broadcaster the people are involuntarily forced to fund. Who, we want to know, is behind the attempt to oust the Prime Minister by email?

Boris on his fellow Islingtonista Emily Thornberry:
“It was an entirely run-of-the-mill English townscape, with some straightforward words to go with it. There was no obvious insult, no abuse, no overt sneering. She might have got away with it entirely, had some alert blogger not spotted it. He instantly detected the coded message that Emily Thornberry was sending to all her right-on, bien-pensant, Labour-luvvie friends in Islington, or wherever else it is that they follow her on Twitter.”
