“Dave’s Candidate” Loses Staffer in Catholic Bashing

Congratulations to Scottish Tory contender Ruth Davidson for being the first to lose a staffer in the increasingly bitter race to be the next leader of the Scottish Tories. The long over-due punch-up is getting down and dirty, with the Sunday Herald turning over Davidson’s agent and campaign staffer for burning an EU flag and slagging off Catholics.

While the flag burning is hardly a vote loser in a Tory race, with Davidson’s supporters spinning the line that she’s “Dave’s choice”, it seems the lesbian newbie MSP is desperate to keep her Cameroon credentials intact – such rabid anti-European views are clearly unacceptable in the modern Conservative Party.  Given that the Scottish Tories lost one leadership hopeful – John Lamont – for dodgy papal digs, you would think Davidson would be more careful at a time when Scotland is searching its sectarian soul. Who would have thought someone who has only been in politics since May, and already running for leader, would not have done proper staff checks…

De Re “Louise”

George Osborne says of Natalie Rowe and William Sinclair that “I met them together occasionally in the autumn of 1993”. She says he paid her £350 for kinky coke and domination sessions. In S & M games it is the practice to agree a “safeword” which is

“…a code word or series of code words that are sometimes used in BDSM for a submissive (or “bottom”) to unambiguously communicate their physical or emotional state to a dominant (or “top”), typically when approaching, or crossing, a physical, emotional, or moral boundary. Some safewords are used to stop the scene outright, while others can communicate a willingness to continue, but at a reduced level of intensity. Safewords are usually agreed upon before playing a scene by all participants.”

Natalie Rowe says Osborne’s agreed safeword with her was “Louise”. The question which many are asking is why “Louise”? What was the provenance of “Louise”? Guido draws co-conspirators attention to the lyrics of “Liza and Louise”, a punk rock single by NO-FX  which was popular in S & M circles. It was released in 1992, the year before Osborne says he met Natalie. As this is a family blog we’re not going to go into the lyrics in great detail.

Chuka Vs. Khan in South London Death Match

There are Boundary Review rumours swirling left, right and centre. What is becoming clear is that the LibDems have been shafted. It’s a generally bad day all round at the office for George Osborne, apparently his Tatton seat is for the chop. Something tells Guido he’ll be alright on this one though…

One concrete plan Guido has managed to get hold of though is the South London re-jigging that is seeing the Labour core of Tooting merge into Streatham and the rest being merged into an uber-safe Tory seat around Wandsworth. Two blog baddies –  Sadiq Khan and Chuka Umunna  in a fight to the death. It’s Christmas come early. Chuka? Khan? Ain’t nobody does it better

FLASHBACK: Osborne Statement On Natalie Rowe Allegations

George Osborne said in October 2005:

“The allegations are completely untrue and dredging up a photo from when I was 22 years old is pretty desperate stuff.

This is merely part of a smear campaign to divert attention from the issues that matter in this leadership contest and I am confident people will not be distracted by this rubbish.

Twelve years ago a friend of mine went out with a woman called Natalie and they had a child together.

I met them together occasionally in the autumn of 1993, and it soon became clear that my friend had started to use drugs.

He became more and more addicted and I saw his life fall apart.

With his other friends I tried to persuade him to seek treatment.

Eventually he did and after a long time in rehabilitation he has now recovered and put his life back together.

I am very proud of the battle he has fought and won. 

That is, and always has been, the sum total of my connection with this woman.

It was a stark lesson to me at a young age of the destruction which drugs bring to so many people’s lives. 

Ever since then I have believed that tough, realistic policies to tackle the evil of drugs should be one of the top priorities of any government.

I now want to respect the privacy of my friend who is now happily recovered and working full-time abroad, and the privacy of his young child.

For the sake of that child I think we should leave them alone.”

He’s up in the House at 15:30. First one to shout “Louise” gets a spanking…

Full Audio of Natalie Rowe Regarding Osborne / Coke / Coulson

PANIC-O-RAMA: BBC’s Vivian White Investigating Osborne, Cocaine, Hooker and Hacking Story

The story that is tantalising Westminster this morning is that ABC News are going to broadcast an interview with Natalie Rowe where she alleges that she took cocaine with George Osborne during £350-a-time dominatrix sessions. The new hook for the story is that she is suing the News of the World for hacking her phone whereas when the Metropolitan police told George Osborne his phone was also hacked, he wasn’t interested in pursuing the issue. The story has been re-hashed as a result of the pending legal action.

The underlying suspicion of many seasoned Westminster observers is that Coulson’s hire was more Osborne than Cameron’s doing. A few weeks ago this point was being made in comment pieces on the media pages of the broadsheets. There was then a spate of stories suggesting that it was in fact Hague who was responsible for bringing Coulson into the Tory family, Hague was formerly a columnist for Andy Coulson’s News of the World. That briefing was put about to undermine the idea that Osborne had any motivation, quid pro quo, to hire Coulson.

The news that Vivian White, the respected Panorama veteran working on the Andy Coulson / hacking story for broadcast later in the year, had met Natalie Rowe, leaked out a few weeks ago. Knowledge of this is what first prompted some panic in No. 11….

Natalie Rowe tells ABC News…

“I said to George jokingly that when you’re prime minister one day I’ll have all the dirty goods on you. And he laughed and took a big fat line of cocaine.”

Quote of the Day

Charles Clarke says Cameron is the most successful PM for over a century…

“Under Margaret Thatcher the Conservatives gained 99 seats. They lost 211 under John Major, gained one under William Hague, quickly and wisely got rid of Ian Duncan-Smith, gained 32 under Michael Howard and have so far gained 133 under David Cameron who, to the great surprise of many (including senior Conservatives), has turned out to be the most electorally successful Tory leader since 1900.”
