Ed ♥ Ellie 4 Ever

Tuesday night saw the Aneurin Bevan Memorial Lecture in Parliament, with Ed Balls taking to stage. Having been unable to convince any of his Shadow Cabinet colleagues to take on Labour’s famous-for-Twitter foghorn Ellie Gellard as a Political Adviser, she’s instead writing his speeches, despite her being officially recorded as a staffer to Kerry McCarthy. Guido hears that it wasn’t for want of trying though…

Gellard has maintained a behind the scenes profile despite ruining Labour’s manifesto launch May 2010. Regular readers will remember her “Gordon is fantastic” speech unraveling in minutes after it emerged that she had previously called for his resignation in less than flattering terms. Since then Gellard has been the Team Balls cheerleader and her loyalty was rewarded on Tuesday with Balls heaping praise on his young admirer:

“I am not going to start this lecture by quoting from the current generation of Labour greats who have paid tribute to Nye Bevan – but by quoting from one of the next younger generation of Bevanites. Because I have been helped in researching this lecture by a young Bristol graduate, Ellie Gellard, the young woman who Labour chose to introduce Labour’s last manifesto in a new hospital in Birmingham. And the name on Twitter she goes by? ‘Bevanite Ellie’.”

And then again:

“That is why, I argued, Nye Bevan deserves the title of Labour’s greatest hero. And what greater tribute to the great man than that he is still a hero today – his name evoked by a new generation to describe their approach to politics. Ladies and gentlemen – just ask Bevanite Ellie… Thank you”

Enough to make a young girl blush…

      You probably get paid more working security and you don’t have to socially interact with anybody. Also at McD’s you can’t spend the whole day on the internet hitting F5. I think you should stay where you are.

        No, not really.

        But launching Labour’s manifesto at a hospital makes perfect sense. That way they could get it straight into intensive care and onto life support.

      Labour broke electoral law by launching their manifesto in the new QE Hospital in Birmingham – using NHS property for party-political purposes isn’t allowed.

      When they were pulled up on using the hospital – despite every speaker on the day referring to the overpriced PFI monstrosity as an example of Labour’s amazingness – they claimed that because the hospital wasn’t “finished” it was still technically a building site.

      Lying Labour liars.

        Was it operating as a hospital at the time? Full quota of pilgrims, 2 administrators for each patient, HAI endemic, that sort of thing?

    There are few things less appealing than watching a deeply unattractive married older man making a fool of himself over a younger woman.

    In politics it seems to be everywhere though – other than this particular instance all you have to do is turn up at one of Handycock’s constituency surgeries or follow Tom Watson around the bars of Soho and Westminster.

    Is Huhne more delusional than McTwat? The article from Guido’s links suggests it is becoming a close run thing. Perhaps if Huhne starts gnawing the carpets and barking at the traffic he might just get his nose in front.

    Aneurine Bevan was a fraudster and black marketeer during the Second World War:

    Gay Labour MP and Soviet Spy Tom Driburg also claimed to have seduced Bevan in his office at Westminter ….

    Clearly a load of Balls.

        Of Driberg:

        Despite his homosexuality he did in fact get married in 1951. His choice of bride being one Ena Binfield, who was reputedly extremely plain. This allowed Winston Churchill the opportunity to quip that “buggers can’t be choosers” whilst an unnamed Commons policeman is said to have commiserated with the future Mrs Driberg with the words “Poor lady, she won’t know which way to turn”.

        Remind you of anyone?

      There’s a bizarre statue of someone called Aneurin Bevan in (possibly quite appropriately) Queen’s Street, Cardiff, posed in a ‘prominent arse’ style which suggests Jonny Wilkinson contemplating a conversion from the touchline. Apart from the fact that his head is permanently covered in pigeon shit, I can tell you very little about the fellow.

      “her good looks will get to her the top of the Labour Party”

      Maybe so, it certainly will not be her brain though. But then, the average Labour voter is as thick as pigshit, so will hardly notice such minor failing.

        But with all the free lunches he’s shovelled down his throat during his political career, his clothes have probably shrunk a few sizes since his uni days. So he might as well use his Che T-shirt to clean the car or wipe his arse.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
