Carole Caplin Gets a Happy Ending

To her libel case.

The Blairs’ former new age guru and shower sharer has won damages from the Mail.*

She kept repeating on the telly a moment ago that she was “nearly fifty”….

She could have fooled Guido…

*She never sued over her topless photos in The Sun.

Fuel Fight Finally Pencilled In

After some confusion and delay, the much hyped fuel prices e-petition that was set up by Robert Halfon will be debated in the House on Thursday 15, November.

Guido would hope a little more successfully than in America

Claws out for Chloe – And It’s Not Just Her Own Side

Multi-millionaire public-schoolgirl Fiona Mactaggart had her claws out as comprehensive girl Chloe Smith took to the despatch box for her first outing at Treasury Questions. The lucid Labourite managed to unite the Tories around the twenty-nine year old new Minister, despite many of them being furious that she has been promoted above their heads.

Abandoning the traditional “may I welcome the Minister”, apparently Smith “was probably in primary school the last time the economy was this bad”. Catty! Labour newcomer Cathy Jamieson was forced to welcome Smith “properly” after Mactaggart’s joke crashed and burnt…

The Evening Independent

The Indy and the Standard have begun a slow merger. Despite talk of “separate identities” the Lebedev’s pet Pravda projects have merged their sports and business desks. Guido got thinking, why has no newspaperever tried to go national in the evenings? Only a few more years left to give it a go…

Two Snapshots of St. Paul’s

Guido took a stroll round the distinctly underwhelming camp at St Paul’s last night. One or two things did make him giggle though:

His face lit up by a thousand corporations…

It all go a little too tiring and emotional for one merry camper…

UPDATE: Behind the paywall The Times have some disgruntled voices:

“Zakandrew Roberts, 18, joined Occupy London on its first day, but left on Saturday after a series of incidents, including someone urinating in his tent and a friend being threatened with a penknife. He claimed that the camp had deteriorated from a group of serious campaigners intent on highlighting issues about economic equality, to “drunks and drug-takers . . . here for a laugh”. Mr Roberts, an unemployed charity worker, said: “Half the people there don’t know why they are there or what they are protesting about. I want political change, not to get high and drunk all the time.”

Watch out for that progressive punch, it’s lethal…

Caracas Ken Wants the Oil Again

If Labour’s candidate for Mayor was anyone but Ken, Boris would be in some trouble, but instead their candidate for Mayor is a gift that keeps on giving. Ken has told London24 that he wants to reintroduce his bonkers oil deal with socialist dictator Hugo Chavez. In the face of raised eyebrows and stifled laughs Ken rants against the CIA for spreading misinformation about the dying Venezuelan leader. Ken was on Chavez’s books as an adviser after he lost to Boris… Does he have any interests to declare on such a deal?

UPDATE:

Warm words…

Polly’s message of hope as she heads for two months holiday in Tuscany…

“Christmas will be hard as many more families see lost jobs. I will be back in January, hoping that Osborne and Cameron will be forced to turn back and go for growth – not in windy words but in deeds.”

David “Mentor to the Murderer” Held Quits LSE

Ed Miliband’s mate Professor David Held has resigned from the LSE before he was pushed. Held welcomed Saif Gaddafi to the LSE as “a representative of the Miliband Foundation” and buttered him up by citing his reforming credentials and respect for human rights:

Held mentored the murderer and oversaw his controversial doctorate, he also took a cheeky £1.5m from Gaddafi’s charitable foundation. The Miliband family have close ties to Dartmouth Park neighbouor Held, with Ed heaping praise on the disgraced professor of political science, despite his Libyan connections being widely known. The Miliband family are apparently “incredibly grateful” to him:

The LSE brought shame upon themselves in this dark period, and one head on a stick won’t restore their tarnished reputation…

Greeks Get €uro Referendum

The Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou has announced that he will put the €uro bailout deal struck last week to the people. There is palpable apoplexy within the EU’s political elite at this democratic outrage. Actually consulting the people in […]

Quote of the Day

Liam Fox shreds Cameron’s Calais scaremongering:

“Sad and disappointed to see our Prime Minister stoop to this level of scaremongering, especially as he knows the Calais agreement is nothing to do with the EU and agreed between the two govts”
