Totty Watch: Sexy Riot Chicks

With the yoof taking to the streets, it was only a matter of time before riot chic became the new look. Those sages at Vice Style have compiled some uprising suggestions:

They can come and smash up Guido’s HQ anytime…

Official : He’s a Banker, Mandy To Join Lazard

Investment bank Lazard have confirmed Guido’s story from Monday:

“London, 21 January 2011 – Lazard Ltd (NYSE: LAZ) announced today that Lord Mandelson, former Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulation, effective immediately.   As a Senior Adviser, he will provide independent strategic counsel to the firm and its clients.”

Clients like Kraft, who took over Cadbury, on Mandy’s watch. You read it here first.

Edmonson: “I’m No Grass”

Suspended Screws Deputy Editor Ian Edmonson is bandying about legal threats at anyone who suggests he was about to blow Coulson’s story:

Not entirely sure that is the way to kill a story…

Friday Caption Contest (Former Spinners Edition)

War on Terror – The Boardgame is up for grabs for the wittiest caption of our old friend Damian McBride, who has taken to entering his local pub quiz in Finchley as a team of one. He looks like he needs some company.

See you down the Old White Lion on Tuesday Andy…

NB. Crap comments will be deleted. The quality of captions has been extremely poor recently. 3 out of 10, see Guido.

Front Runners to Replace Coulson

Back in September (GPW Hotly Tipped for Post-Coulson Downing Street) Guido put a few names forward as potential successors to Andy Coulson. The same names are in the frame again. Former Indy deputy editor Ian Birrell seems to be Steve Hilton’s preferred choice, he is apparently liked and trusted by Cameron. George Pascoe Watson, the former Sun man now spinning at Portland, is mentioned, however  replacing one former Murdoch man with another could be problematic.

Ben Brogan, despite much speculation, insists he is not in the running.  Another name mentioned is Guto Harri, currently spinning for Boris, he is known to fancy going to Downing Street. The BBC’s James Landale shouldn’t be ruled out – he is an Old Etonian after all – don’t be surprised if you next see him in No. 10 rather than reporting from outside it. Modesty forbids Guido suggesting another combative tabloid-tuned, right-winger who likes taking the fight to Labour…

Quote of the Day

Andy Coulson told the Culture Select Committee:

“I knew nothing about hacking”

+ + + Coulson Resigns + + +

Word is that Ian Edmonson, suspended deputy News of the World editor was going to turn him in. Edmonson has issued a denial through his lawyers.

UPDATE : Coulson’s resignation statement:

I can today confirm that I’ve resigned as Downing Street director of communications. It’s been a privilege and an honour to work for David Cameron for three-and-a-half years.

I’m extremely proud of the part I’ve played in helping him reach No 10 and during the coalition’s first nine months.

Nothing is more important than the Government’s task of getting this country back on its feet.

Unfortunately, continued coverage of events connected to my old job at the News of the World has made it difficult for me to give the 110% needed in this role.

I stand by what I’ve said about those events but when the spokesman needs a spokesman, it’s time to move on.

I’ll leave within the next few weeks and will do so wishing the Prime Minister, his family, and his brilliant and dedicated team the very best for what I’m sure will be a long and successful future in Government.

+ + + Good Day to Bury Bad News + + +

Johnson. Blair. And an imminent statement from Number 10 about the future of Andy Coulson. Place your bets now.
