The Redemption of Andrew Pierce

The Mail’s Andrew Pierce is changing his ways. He seems to have nipped his bad habit of thieving stories in the bud and he’s apparently turning over a new leaf. Guido pointed out the other day that the reason Piercy hadn’t been to the local pub, that he was happy to rent-a-quote about in his local paper, “for months” was because he was banned as a consequence of his drunken antics. Well apparently he has been putting the word about that he has given up the boozing.

And not just for lent!

Whips Office Whisper

Which boisterous, married, Government Whip has set tongues wagging after being spotted out and about with a rather “popular” blonde bombshell bag-carrier?

He better watch out next time he is twisting arms for votes, colleagues are watching…

Red Ed’s “Refounding”

Ed Miliband has apparently promised to ‘refound’ the Labour. When he is done with that he is going to town on the English dictionary.

The document is straight out of the Cameron-detoxify playbook but interesting to see the unions being diluted by the public potentially having a say over the leader. It’s lucky for Red Ed that this rule wasn’t already in place. It’s pretty cosmetic stuff…

Guido can’t help think that a lot of these measures would have been unnecessary on a Miliband (D) and Cooper ticket.

Quote of the Day

Luke Bozier blogs on LabourList…

“We have become the party of the public sector and nothing more; protecting the status quo and our own vested interests, glorifying the fight against fiscal prudence. This is an electoral waste-ground and I hope either Ed Miliband, or the party at large, realises this and wakes us up from what seems like a very bad dream. If we don’t, expect to lose the next election, and quite possibly the one after that too.”

Harris Ain’t Happy

Guido saw that this video had only got 2 views and thought it deserved a wider audience:

Though Tom Harris might want to have a quiet word in the ear of his fellow Labour MPs Tom Blenkinsop, Ronnie Campbell, Martin Caton, Katy Clark, Michael Connarty, Jeremy Corbyn, David Crausby, Jim Dobbin, Jim Hood, Kelvin Hopkins, Gerald Kaufman, John McDonnell, Alan Meale, Linda Riordan, Virendra Sharma and Marsha Singh. They all signed up to heap praise on UK Uncut, whose spokesman last night refused to condemn the violence.

Kay’s Glorious Prose

Kay Burely’s book “First Ladies” is finally upon us. Guido told you last year that it revolved around three completely and utterly fictional women and their love for an alarmingly Blair-like PM. Some of these women sound very familiar though…

There’s the “titian-haired” Sally Simpson, “a powerful magazine editor … in skin-tight Prada and killer heels, she is every man’s fantasy”; Valerie Jenson, a “deeply unhappy” and “weary first lady” who“spends her time drinking”“sexy TV reporter Isla McGovern, who has caught Julian’s eye and will do anything (or anyone) to get to the top”. Rumour is there was a substantial re-write after horrified execs read a draft…

Media Monkey have got the extracts:

“Lithe and muscular, he effortlessly lifted her from the bed and onto his broad shoulders. Sally felt all the excitement and exhilaration of a fairground ride as he continued to offer intense pleasure before she was finally sated and he lowered her gently back onto the round bed. Julian flopped contentedly beside her.

“At that exact moment, Julian was expertly using his silver tongue to offer intense gratification to Sally as he held on firmly to her taut, tanned thighs, tightly gripped around his handsome face.”

Campbell, Blair and now Burley. What is it with the horrendous sex scenes recently?

Lembit for London

There is a LibDem establishment campaign to prevent Lembit Öpik becoming their candidate for London Mayor. This is a mistake. The LibDems are likely to be annihilated in the Mayoral race if they put forward a nonentity candidate.

With Lembit they will get media coverage in what will be a battle of strong personalities, without him they will be ignored. Like Boris and Ken, Lembit has single-name recognition, he is media friendly and will hold his own in hustings. If the LibDems choose anyone else they will be shooting themselves in the foot.
