How To Review the Papers

Love him or hate him there is no denying that Kelvin MacKenzie has still got it.

Last night’s Sky News paper review was certainly a lively affair.

It’s worth waiting for the last minute to see Stephen Pound feel the wrath

One day Guido will get round to making the “What Would Kelvin Do?” t-shirts…

Friday Caption Contest: (Empty Edition)

This week’s winner is in for a treat, there is a copy of Palgrave’s British Political Facts, worth £150 up for grabs.

Usual rules apply.

NB. Yes Guido knows there is a backlog of prizes to give out, but be nice, it’s his birthday.

Yew Turn If You Want To

The government has decided to back down and retreat on their radical and bold idea to sell some trees. The benchmark has been set. If around 0.7 percent of the country sign a petition complaining it seems the coalition will happily boot something into the long grass to make the headache go away.

Brave stuff.

A Rather Familiar Scandal

In a new record for fastest internet scalping, Gawker took down a Congressman this week in just over three hours from breaking to vacating. Rep. Christopher Lee was a married Republican congressman serving the 26th District of New York who thought he would put some sexy pictures of himself on the internet. Sound familiar?

Has the old country taught them nothing?

Judge a Man by His Friends

Blinky BallsA pattern is emerging, every time a Labour Party figure ends up in disgrace, Balls is never far away. Yesterday he was launching Labour’s coronation in Barnsley Central, as its previous Member of Parliament was preparing for a year in prison.

‘Eric was a good friend of mine, one of the first MPs I met when I first came into the House of Commons. I think he fought hard for this constituency and did a good job and I think people respect that. But he also made a mistake, a big mistake and he’s paying a big price for that, and I think that’s right’

A bit like another good friend Balls thought it appropriate to salute in November when he “led a round of applause for Phil Woolas & his dedicated service to his constituents and the Labour party”. His dedicated service to the truth too.

And what was it Balls said about Damian McBride back in the day? He was another good friend who made a mistake:

“Asked whether he had been in contact with Labour’s most notorious pariah, Balls confirmed that he had, but suggested it was purely social: “I certainly wished him a happy birthday. As I said [when he resigned], Damian did a very stupid thing, he’s paid a very heavy price, but we all get on with our jobs”

Ed Balls is the man who wants us to trust him with the nation’s finances, they say you should judge a man by his friends, his seem to be liars and crooks who cheat the taxpayers. Perhaps they will all end up on the same the pub quiz team

Quote of the Day

Andrew Neil on the dying Dead Tree Press

“I read more bloggers now than mainstream columnists, because they’ve got more interesting things to say. Too many columnists today make you think, ‘Yeah, I think you’ve said that 10 times before and I’ve just noticed your column has not go a single fact in it’”.
