Powell Departs

After Guido suggested here last week that it was rather odd that a member of the Labour Party Executive board and deputy Chief of Staff to the leader had managed to breeze into the candidacy for a nominally safe Labour seat, Lucy Powell has resigned from both her roles. Funny that she didn’t think it was appropriate to do so before her stitched up selection…

    You said “funny” and used a picture of a comedian. Don’t know who the bloke is though.

            Who was that Conservative shrew shreiking on The Daily Politics Show today?
            What a harridan.
            A million banshee-fishwives could not have caused such unwelcome caterwaling.

    It’s the ridiculous transvestite, Eddie Izzard who fronted campaigns to get Britain to join the Euro and adopt the preferential vote in the referendum last year. They worked out well then!

    Well done Guido, you flushed her out and got her on the run.

    A shame it took days for her to walk and nobody at Labour noticed. A tidy stitch-up!

    Just saw a glimpse of Little Ned’s PMQ’s questions for tomorrow. He’s been working with Mad Nads.

    1. _ Does this arrogant Prime minister know what the price of milk is?

    2. _ Does he know how much the rise in a 265g, large letter 250mm x 353mm not more than 25mm thickness is going to be? he doesn’t ? Unbelievable!

    3._ Well Mr Sque/ker – lets see if knows how much an annual subscription to Match-dot- com is? He doesn’t? Well i do sir..i do..He just doesn’t get it..lets try again shall we.

    4._ Is it true, as some of his own backbenchers believe, that the PM and his chancellor are “Millionaire toff Bullingdon rich boys. Eton lords and masters; duke and duchess better than the rest of us billionaires, millionaires, erm..hundreds and thousandaires..super tax payers..landed gentry, horsey set, hunting with dogs..badminton..rowing club, cricket blazers, croquet hoopers, coming out balls. top totty..high society, elitist, private prep school, champers swilling, tea drinking, cucumber sandwich stuffing, foie gras eating, pate spreading, trust fund enjoying
    better than you, Mansion house, family crest, Rolls Royce driving, duck house, moat cleaning, Chipping Norton, cream tea, Barbour coated, wellie wearing, stock owning, banker friending, footsie 100, private box owning, night at the opera, yacht possessing, smug bastards?

    {be ready for -wot?like wot ‘u is you pretend socialist’ comeback line.}

Dan Hodges on Team Miliband:

“‘Poisonous’, was the picture painted by one former senior advisor. ‘Dysfunctional,’ said one shadow cabinet member. ‘A bunch of medieval courtiers, not an office,’ said another. The most positive description I could get was ‘It’s a work in progress. They’re learning. Slowly. But they are learning.’”



Nick Clegg says:

Do you want lies with that?
