Step Into My Office

Sky’s Jon Craig reports that Labour are dragging their feet in arranging an office for George Galloway. He has taken up residence in the Portcullis House Atrium as spotted by EyeSpyMP last week. Lots of rubbish Gorgeous?

UPDATE:

Son of Jonah Brown

Though it looked like Dave might be developing shades of Jonah Brown about him when he landed in Indonesia to be greeted by an earthquake, Ed fans should not be laughing yet. True to his ideological father, Miliband seems to have had the reverse Midas touch with Aquascutum. Choosing the outfitters for his rushed wedding last year, the firm have now gone bust. Keep an eye on TM Lewin

PMQs LIVE: Welcome Back Edition

Lobby Misses Ken Misspeak

Her Majesty’s Loyal Regiment of Hacks were treated to lunch with Ken Livingstone yesterday. Standing before them for the first time since 1985, the wine was flowing and he came out with some characteristic cant. It seems the gentleman of the Lobby were not on guard though, as they missed an absolute howler. Ken claimed: “I think Ed represents genuine Labour values. That’s why I voted for him.” Which isn’t true – Ken very publicly endorsed Ed Balls. He stumped for him and encouraged other people to vote for him. Pay attention lads…

Ed Stuck On Labour By-Election Ban

As MPs return from their extended break, the rumour mill has taken a day or two to get back into gear, but Guido hears that Monday’s meeting of the Parliamentary Labour Party was not much fun. Harman and Watson’s controversial idea to try and ban MPs from standing in by-elections was raised by grumpy backbenchers who report that Ed was left with very little to say other than “no decision has been made” over and over. Why would they want to leave with that sort of inspirational leadership?
