Initial Thoughts

Whatever happened to Cleggmania?

Did voters cross over from Labour to the Tories without stopping in between?

Tweeter Culpa

Guido has in the past, you may have noted, said that “Twitter is s**t”, “Twitter is a passing fad” etcetera.

Strongly held opinions have never in the past prevented Guido from trying to maximise his ubiquity.  Eagle eyed co-conspirators will have spotted that the masthead has changed today and that the Guido twitterstream is now incorporated into the masthead at the top right.

Never let it be said that Guido wouldn’t change his opinion, some eleven thousand co-conspirators following him can’t be wrong….

Politics of Pole Dancing

Have no idea what it is all about…

Fawkes Girls Endorse "None of the Above"

Guido brought home some political finger puppets* last night.  This morning Miss Fawkes (5) and Ms Fawkes (2¾) grabbed them off the breakfast table, ripping open the packets to give dad the benefit of their political analysis.

First, and mindful that Mrs Fawkes was watching with a wary look in her eye, Guido tried to exercise some fatherly objectivity and give the girls some background:-

“The one with the red tie is Gordon Brown, he is the Prime Minister, the one with the blue tie is David Cameron, he wants to be Prime Minister.  Nick Clegg has a yellow tie and he wants to decide who is Prime Minister.”

Miss Fawkes immediately and perceptively interrupted “They are all boys?”, “Yes” replied dad. Miss & Ms Fawkes chorused “Yukk”.  With that they discarded the politicians and went back to their porridge.

So there you have it, The feminist Fawkes girls say “none of the above”…

+++ Developing +++

According to UKIP sources a two seater plane used by Nigel Farage was circling to land in Buckingham when it crashed.  Farage is injured but “walked out of the plane”.  The pilot is/was being cut out.

UPDATE : Farage has been taken to the Horton General Hospital in Banbury. The pilot is being taken to a specialist spinal injuries hospital in Coventry.

UPDATE : II From wire report: Eyewitnesses told how the pilot and Mr Farage were in the front seat of the plane when it banked and the promotional banner became tangled around the tail fin causing it to plummet to the ground.

Guido and the rest of the Guy News team send their best wishes for a speedy recovery.

UPDATE : III From the BBC:

A very lucky escape by the looks of it.
