Vicky Pryce Not Happy With HuhneHer Lawyer Releases New Statement

Vicky Pryce has just released this statement via her lawyers

“I am surprised that my ex-husband considers it appropriate to talk at a public meeting about the very private aspects of our family life. I do not intend to comment on his interview or its accuracy. However, I consider, particularly given the setting of where he was, that what he said is a serious intrusion into mine and our family’s private life.”

Psycho Huhne strikes again…

Total Politics Blog Readers Awards: We're Still #1

We’re chuffed that Total Politics magazine readers once again voted the top political blog. Thanks are due to the readers and fans who have voted us Britain’s #1 blog for the third year running. We’re so very proud to be the blog you love and they hate. 

We have had scoops large and small, gossip, fun, hounded Johann Hari and even broken some hard news stories to keep bringing in an average of 100,000 readers a week to find out what is really going on in Westminster. Last year we were happy to do our bit to bring down the deficit, this year we have done it again, putting Jane Pilgrim back to work on the front line as an NHS nurse not a full-time union agitator at the taxpayers’ expense. We’re cutting the deficit one non-job at a time.

Looking back on this year we’re pleased that we have increasingly focused on the  hypocrisy of the politico-media nexus. Apart from Private Eye we’re pretty much alone in covering this subject. Investigations like this Guy News edition, which sent Polly Toynbee and Alan Rusbridger into hypocrisy gymnastics:

As the papers remain pretty schtum we’ve been highlighting the pretensions and fears of the media. Almost all of the newspapers have been hacking and blagging away merrily over the years and it is our intention to make sure that the “Circular Firing Squad” happens and that the truth is revealed. It isn’t just one newspaper editor or rogue journalist, it is hundreds of members of Her Majesty’s Press who have been breaking the law. Though you wouldn’t know that if you just read the papers.

It won’t make us any friends, though we didn’t come to Westminster to make friends, and we have certainly achieved that objective. While we’re on the subject we may as well ask about the blogs that didn’t bark: whatever happened to all that nonsense about the left-wing blogs thriving in opposition? They now have full-time staff and union funding yet they’re still not getting cut-through. Despite the change of government, Guido’s still leading the opposition.

We can’t do it without you. We’ll keep digging, muck-raking and totty-watching as long as we have readers who support us. Thanks for your attention…

Huhne Not Hanging About for Clegg's Leader Speech

UPDATE: Huhne didn’t miss anything.

Peter Oborne in the Speccie tomorrow…

“Very rarely in political history has any faction or movement enjoyed such a complete and crushing victory as the Conservative Eurosceptics. The field is theirs. They were not merely right about the single currency, the greatest economic issue of our age — they were right for the right reasons. They foresaw with lucid, prophetic accuracy exactly how and why the euro would bring with it financial devastation and social collapse.”

Psycho Huhne Checklist

Chris Huhne’s performance last night when questioned by Andrew Rawnsley about his marriage and speeding was jaw-dropping. It confirms Guido in his opinion that Chris Huhne is a political-psychopath. It is widely and euphemistically said by cabinet colleagues that Huhne has an “incredible ability to compartmentalise his life”. Now an ability to remain cool under fire is admirable, when it is to a degree that it is so manifestly cold and calculating it raises questions.

The clinically accepted Hare psychopathy checklist applied to Huhne is revealing. Guido scored Huhne as having 17/20 pyschopathic character traits based on everything we know about him. Here is a man who told the mother of three of his children and wife of 26 years that he was having an affair and their marriage was over using the words “we have thirty minutes to kill the story“. He psychopathically hoped to enlist Vicky’s immediate help in protecting his political career from the publicity fall-out.

Print out the test below and score Huhne for yourself:

Scary isn’t it?

Remember, Remember the "Colour Thief"

Guido is a little torn about the Fifth of November celebrations. Historically it has been characterised by anti-Catholic bigotry for example until very recently in Lewes, Sussex, (holiday home to Polly Toynbee) the famous celebrations featured anti-Catholic “Bonfire Prayers” calling for the Pope’s destruction and the burning of not only Guy Fawkes, but also the Pope. It has now mutated into a much healthier burning of hate figures such as Osama Bin Laden, Sadam Hussein and Tony Blair.

It appears that loony-left Southwark Council is backing away from turning the official municipal fireworks party into something politically correct called The Colour Thief: A Winter Extravaganza Celebrating The Changing Of The Seasons. Guido’s preference is for a Guy Fawkes Night that celebrates an attempt to overthrow a tyrant and destroy the political class…

Quote of the Day

Trump supporter Raheem Kassam responds to Suzanne Evans calling him “far right”:

“We’re going to rise above it. When she goes low, we go high, to quote Michelle Obama.”
