So Long Jody

Radical leftist Jody McIntyre shot to fame after he falsely accused the police of brutality after last year’s student protests. Having positioned himself on the frontline in a wheelchair, the police took the decision to move him out of the way for safety. The IPCC threw out the complaint and McIntyre’s integrity took a hit when he boasted about being on the roof of Millbank CCHQ, along with the fire extinguisher tosser. Guido covered the matter at the time.

Obviously McIntyre had everything required to became a darling of the provocative left, and not long after the Indy gave him a blogging platform and Channel 4 commissioned him to make documentaries. Well not any more.

As Harry’s Place points out, McIntyre’s spectacularly badly judged incitement to riot tweets this week have seen him ditched from the Indy, HuffPo and his telly show cancelled. A lesson there. With his career in tatters, young Jody’s heart should be jumping in his mouth every time there is a knock on the door. The same police that he tried to screw over are coming for anyone who stirred up trouble….

Red Len to Be Ed’s Chief of Staff

Guido is hearing from well placed sources that Chris Lennie, Ed’s preferred, yet unsuccessful, candidate to be the General Secretary of the Labour Party, is set to be made his Chief-of-Staff.  The Labour leader has struggled to fill the position. Lennie, known as “The Tailor” for his ability to stitch things up, lost out to union backed Iain McNicol, yet apparently Ed is ready to bring him into the fold. There have been rumblings amongst party staff who complain that Lennie is “the great survivor” always bouncing back despite a lack of any discernible talent. No wonder Ed loves him so much…

Dozy Ed and His Sleepy Spinners

It’s handbags and at dawn between the Murdoch empire and Ed Miliband. Hardly news anymore, but after Gordon’s hackgate blunders, you would think someone would check the facts before going into battle. People spotted that Ed Miliband had clearly dozed off for a moment during Yvette Cooper’s speech yesterday, and who can blame him. The official line given to the Sun was that he was “looking down at his iPhone”. You can be the judge of that…

Anyone with any clue what they were doing would have left it at that, but instead Ed couldn’t help but try to have the last word with this tweet from his press team:

Harsh words you might say, but all the more embarrassing when you look at which other paper covered the nodding off. Step forward the darlings of the Hackgate scandal – the Guardian:

“He blinked. He kept his eyes open with imaginary matchsticks. Then he finally gave up and drifted into the arms of Morpheus, only to wake up with a jerk.”

Never too late to say sorry Ed…

LibDems Like Strippers After All

Simon Cooper has been the LibDem HQ “Digital Media & Content” techie since June. His CV has all the hallmarks of a self-made social media guru, yet he seems to have fallen at the first hurdle. Any good web advisor would of course recommend a good clean-up of a personal Facebook account and a tinkering with the privacy settings:

What would LibDem Equalities Minister Lynne Featherstone have to say about all this?

Well funnily enough:

Guido understands the social media world this is technically considered “a fail”.

Quote of the Day

Peter Oborne muses:

“A great deal has been made over the past few days of the greed of the rioters for consumer goods, not least by Rotherham MP Denis MacShane who accurately remarked, “What the looters wanted was for a few minutes to enter the world of Sloane Street consumption.” This from a man who notoriously claimed £5,900 for eight laptops. Of course, as an MP he obtained these laptops legally through his expenses.”

Knee-Jerk Ed

In a fairly uninspiring interview on the Today programme, Ed just made Guido choke on his corn flakes with his declaration that “knee jerk reactions don’t work”. Is this the same Ed Miliband we know and love?

  • What happened to the Ed Miliband that asked for Ken Clarke’s head on a plate?
  • What happened to the Ed Miliband that called for the break up of the Murdoch empire in the wake of the phone-hacking scandal?
  • What happened to the Ed Miliband who got hitched to Justine after pressure from those of us who pointed out that it was unusual and a little bit weird for a party leader not to be married to the mother of his children?

It seems Ed got his knees done at the same time as his nose…

The Donald asks what America wants from a President…

“I spent less, I won the most. Isn’t that what you want from your President for a little time?”
