Quote of the Day

Nick Clegg says…

“Brown systematically blocked, and personally blocked, political reform. I think he is a desperate politician and I just do not believe him.” He added: “And do I think Labour delivered fairness? No. Do I think the Labour Party in its heart has a faith in civil liberties? No. Do I think they’ve delivered political reform? No. They are clutching at straws.”

The End of the Fable

Regardless of your views on the new hair do, a slightly more aggressive Osborne scored an unexpected victory at this afternoon’s Chancellors Debate. The CCHQ debate preparation team take note – anger works.

Osborne was helped in no uncertain terms by the music hall duo of Flanders and Neil beasting Cable on his reputation and record. These two have history, but the old yellow sage was left speechless by Brillo’s “Isn’t the biggest myth of the election your reputation?”

Cable's Soothsaying Blip

Having been the front man for the entire LibDem campaign until 45 minutes into the Leader’s Debate, Vince has all but disappeared into the background this week.  No longer the nation’s favourite politician, his soothsaying sage act is also washing a little thin. Inflation figures released yesterday were higher than Cable expected again at 3.4%, leading him to claim that “the inflation rise appears to be a blip caused by things that are out of our control...”

But that’s not how he saw it when he was reading his magical economic runes three months ago in January, then he said with his characteristic bluffer’s confidence “these figures are almost certainly a temporary spike.”  Doesn’t seem too temporary to Guido,* in fact when you print £200 billion and call it quantitative easing (as supported by Cable), you inevitably get inflation.

Perhaps if Clegg would let him back on the platform, he might be able to explain why inflation has remained high and got even worse over the last three months. Could certainly liven up this afternoon’s Chancellor’s Debate…

Calamity Clegg’s Cab Cock-Up

Having sworn blind that Lord Rennard was not involved in the Liberal Democrat campaign, Cowley Street looks a little silly this morning given The Sun’s dossier scoop. In a blunder, Clegg’s spinner John Sharkey’s notes on debate rehearsals – including how Clegg is being coached to imitate, yet slam, David Cameron, were left in the back of a cab.

Lord Rennard’s role in manifesto planning and organisation is referenced and amusingly, true to form, he was keen on involving token women. Less funny is the fact that Cowley Street staffer Phil Reilly lied to Guido.  Yesterday he said categorically Rennard was in no way involved in Clegg’s campaign. Does he now want to retract that and apologise for lying to Guido?

Clegg Has the Big Mo, Can He Seal the Deal?

With just over two weeks to go and the latest polls showing the LibDems in the lead Cleggmania is now everywhere, tomorrow the Guy News poll of polls rolling average will likely show  the LibDems neck and neck or ahead of the Tories. As Brown and the left cling to the hope of a “progressive coalition” YouGov’s Peter Kellner highlights research showing that whereas 52% of voters would be ‘dismayed’ by a Gordon Brown government, some 42% of the electorate would be ‘delighted’ or ‘wouldn’t mind’ a Lib-ConChange Coalition government.

Guido reads that as telling us that if Clegg signaled his intentions clearly he could seal the deal with the electorate.  If he looks into the camera and says, “under no circumstances will we keep Gordon Brown in government”, swing voters and Tory waverers would no longer fear a Lib-Lab coalition and 5 more years of Gordon Brown, he could break-through to nearer 40% of the popular vote.  Clegg might even win outright…

UPDATE : On the Politics Smarkets Clegg’s price seems cheap for Next PM after Gordon: Clegg is worth backing at 14%, Cameron is still favourite on 65%. Harman 17%, Miliband 14%, Balls 10%, and Johnson 10% are also in the running.

Quote of the Day

The “Cameron Girls” admit

“The Cameron Girls” (one Conservative, one Liberal Democrat) is a comedy video filmed and supported by a plethora of people with various political allegiances… We have been quite astounded by the level of interest in our story. Clearly the political classes were short on entertainment in this election.

Mirror Running Around Like Headless Chickens

With Labour in third place they must be panicking at the Mirror. For some reason they decided today to follow Dave around with a man in a yellow chicken suit.  With some tetchiness, not to mention a slight danger of doing a Prezza, Dave seized the chicken impersonator and pulled his head off.[…] Read the rest

Disgraced Rennard’s Return

Chris Rennard stood down as the CEO of the Liberal Democrats citing ill health. Nothing to do with the outrage caused by the £41,000 in expenses he claimed for his “holiday home” in Vauxall-on-Sea. Let’s not forget all those other skeletons in the cupboard too.[…] Read the rest

Vote-Mapping : LibDems Vote Increasingly with the Tories

As the howls of anguish seep out of CCHQ that the LibDems will keep Brown in, Guido begs to differ, there is that risk of course but it is not as great a risk as they claim.  There is also a great prize on offer, Brown can lead the Labour Party over the abyss into electoral oblivion destroying the Labour Party as a party of government.  […] Read the rest
