No2AV Winning Website War

Promising stuff from the No2AV campaign as their website goes live today, plenty more to come too apparently:

The Yes camp were quick to start whining of “dirty tricks” over the use of the colour purple, which is apparently theirs. Guido wasn’t aware colours were copyrighted, and if they are then it’s UKIP who should be moaning. If that is going to be the level of attack, then the referendum is going to be even more boring than Guido imagined…

Illsley Not Really Resigning

He says in his statement he is “winding down his office” and will stand down before his next court appearance – which is in a month. Based on past precedent he’ll get sentenced to more than a year in jail at his next court appearance and would therefore lose his membership of parliament anyway without resigning. Meantime he’ll claim more than £5,000 further off the taxpayers he has already been convicted of robbing…

Illsley Can Keep Troughing for a Month

The Speaker has decreed that because Eric Illsley’s case is still sub judice no move to expel him can be made until sentencing.  So the thief can continue troughing on his taxpayers salary for another month. To the public such a measure looks absurd and antiquated. Nearly 2,000 people have signed the petition calling for Illsley to do the right thing and fall on his sword. Guido hears there are plans to deliver the names to the disgraced member in person…

UPDATE: Paul Waugh reports of the distinct unease at the Speakers ruling:

“Well, to all of us hacks we found this jaw-droppingly wrong. How on earth can something still be sub judice when a judge rather than a jury is the only person left in the legal process? Judges cannot be influenced by words in newspapers, unlike juries. We’re not the only ones who think the Speaker’s advice was misguided. Labour clearly have their doubts and are desperate to call for the resolution and avoid getting the blame for Illsley being allowed – let’s not forget this – to pick up at least another month’s taxpayer-funded salary as an MP.”

Apparently Downing Street aren’t too impressed either…

Tell the Speaker what you think.

Nick Clegg Kicked My Baby

Or did he? According to BBC North, Clegg accidentally kicked a small child in a push chair on a walkabout in Oldham yesterday. He then tried to blame a less than impressed Michael Crick who was doing his usual two-paces-behind-asking-awkward-questions trick.

However, as PoliticsHome picked up, the father of the alleged victim has rushed to tweet Nick’s innocence, denying it happened. Guido isn’t so sure though, especially when you look at the footage from fourteen minutes here. Of all things that could go wrong on the stump, injuring small children is very high up the list.

There’s definitely some sort of contact.

Miliband Turns to Balls

Having denied rumours he was off to be our man in Washington, it seems David Miliband was aiming much lower in his post-leadership bid prospects. It emerges this morning that he is to be paid £50,000 to become a non-executive director of Sunderland Football Club.

No threat of his brother stealing this ball from him.

Quote of the Day

Heather Wheeler talks to Burton Mail about her tweet…

“It was a tongue in cheek pop after the European Parliament tweet – it was purely that. I also wanted to congratulate Team GB on a brilliant result and thirdly congratulate the Commonwealth countries who also did very well. Fourth, I am also looking forwarded to establishing new trade agreements. That was it – nothing more. Let’s just enjoy the summer!”
