Musical SpAds

A few re-jigs of the SpAd list after the weekend’s little upsets. With Danny Alexander moving, perhaps temporarily, to the Treasury, MP-turned-Special Advisor Willie Rennie keeps his job now becoming Michael Moore’s bag carrier in the Scotland Office. Alexander’s other SpAd, Alison Suttie, Clegg’s former Deputy Chief of Staff, appears to be out on her ear though as her old boss will no longer have time to mess about with Clegg in the Cabinet Office.

It could all change back though, the bookies reckon there is a 40% chance Laws will be back by Christmas

      Look, what is wrong, we are training our youth to be able to jump from place to place. This is the future: adaptable people. The question is who has the talent for each advisor position?

      I hope this make Guido a little less down.

    is the new editor of the telegraph a bit compromised in the outing of David Laws – I mean with him being a such a public catholic & the teachings of the catholic church being so homophobic?

    I am catholic myself so this is not an anti catholic comment.

    What about the other big news.
    CPFC might be going to the wall.
    I hope they don’t fuck that up like everything else, because I wouldn’t mind being a born again Chelsea supporter.
    After 36 years I have suffered enough following Palace.

    The Fly On The Wall at Cowley Street says:

    Meanwhile, dark mutterings in the corridors of Cowley Street today, which centre on the true relationship between Lundie and Laws.

    It appears increasing credence is being given to the rumour that surfaced over the weekend that the £950 pm ‘rent’ that Lundie was receiving from Laws was not so much for accommodation, as silence.

    Apparently, Laws and Lundie were indeed in a relationship in the past, but when it ended, Lundie was not keen to see a millionaire partner walk out of the door and into the sunset and intimated how sad it would be if Laws’ private life were to inadvertently be made public…

    The suggestion is that an arrangement was subsequently struck whereby they both pursued separate lives (which strangely enough, Laws has admitted to publicly) but remained under the same roof, with Laws paying Lundie ‘rent’ for his accommodation.

    No wonder Lundie is currently unavailable for comment…

    Dellboy (this time next year we will be millionaires) says:

    Alexander used tax payers money to increase the value of his house then flipped it to avoid CGT and pocketed the profits. At the same time his wife was travelling up and down the country at our expense. Snots in the trough my God and today Cable sang his praises on BBC Scotland.
    Cable’s morals are in free fall to the level of Clegg, Laws, and Alexander’s.

Damian McBride writes in the epilogue to his memoir…

“At the time of writing, nine months from the election, I’ve concluded that Labour currently has no positive messages to communicate to anyone about why they should vote for the party, no policies which will persuade them, and is being run in a totally dysfunctional way.”
