Guy News : PBR Budget Bingo Edition

#BlogWars ’09

Guido is off to physically wage war tonight on politicians, we’ll find out if Labour are “fighters and believers”, if the Tories “will fight and Britain will win”The Guy News team will be impartially shooting at both sides, as always…

There has been a bit of banter and sledging on Twitter in advance (hashtag tonight is #blogwars).  Pictured above: Guido looking camp in Kampuchea with the Khmer Bleu, LabourList’s Alex Smith still searching for WMDs, ToryBear looking for @BevaniteEllie, CCHQ’s Sam Coates practising his sharp shooting and Brittany Greer demonstrating why you don’t mess with Texas.

Thanks to Jag Singh (pictured right) at MessageSpace for organising the match.  Do his Labour Party colleagues know that the former Hillary ’08 staffer is a paid up member of the NRA?  Splat!

Danke Darling

The boss of the mighty Deutsche Bank Josef Ackermann is laughing that Downing Street and the Elysee Palace are shooting their financial centres in the foot.  He is acclaiming that Germany has a “comparative advantage” over other financial cities due to the fact that Britain and subsequently France will be taxing bonuses at penal rates.  “To strengthen the financial hub of Germany I think is a very wise move” he sarcastically mocks with that crazy German sense of humour for which they are famous.

It has come to something when boring Frankfurt, home of the European Central Bank, is rubbing its hands with glee at the prospect of London’s bankers heading towards them.  Cheers Darling…

Gordon Gets an Old Etonian Makeover

They must be getting desperate in the Downing Street bunker.  Is Brown changing tactics from spending his last few months in power bashing Etonians?  The persistent 10% poll deficit demands desperate measures.  If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em – or at least look like ’em. Someone sent him out of the bunker in what looks remarkably like an Old Etonian tie.

He’ll be dreaming up policy on a playing field next…

Five Hours Until the #BlogWars Begin

Tonight sees the logical extension of online political warfare.  Teams from CCHQ, Labour, GuyNews.TV and assorted political campaigns are being extraordinarily rendered into the back of black vans with darkened windows to an undisclosed secret location for battle.

For those who want to follow the action tonight’s hashtag is #blogwars.  See also ‘Bambi-killer’ ToryBear, Shane GreerThis is not just paintball….

*Guido extracted this old picture of him the late 80s on the frontline between freedom and Marxist dictatorship (unfortunately his freedom fighting friends are probably still classified).

Gordon’s Unshaken Hand

The Prime Mentalist arrived in Afghanistan with hands outstretched to greet the troops. Gordon obviously doesn’t know that while standing to attention a soldier can’t play along with his photo op:

The man is a walking PR disaster…

Quote of the Day

Einy Shah, Boris staffer, Tweets

“Ha ha Boris on his way out ‘OK, we’re off to save the planet!’ “

Ask The PM Live at 11

If you head over to the Number 10 website right now you can ask Gordon anything you want about the war in Afghanistan:

Something tells Guido his questions won’t be getting through the bunker staff.

How to Erase that Brown/Balls Dividing Line

Tim Montgomerie is asking for ideas to counter the deliberately drawn Brown/Balls 20% VAT political dividing line.  He makes five suggestions: admit VAT will rise to 20%, time limit it, ameliorate the regressiveness, promise a focus on spending cuts and […]

Quote of the Day

Labour candidate Clive Lewis tells the Staggers:

“I mean, in the multiverse there’s still three universes in a hundred where there’s a Green MP in Norwich, so anything could happen. I could be caught with my pants down behind a goat with Ed Miliband at the other end – well, hopefully that won’t happen.”
