This Week’s Guidogram, Written By the Intern…

The Guidogram round-up goes out weekly. It covers all the goings on and the best bits of the blog you may have missed in the week. This week we made the successful summmer-intern-to-be have a three bottle lunch with us, and then write the Guidogram. We explained to him that over 10,000 Westminster insiders from Downing Street and all the newsrooms are on the list.  No pressure.

Join the conspiracy and become a subscriber to the Guidogram, it is free, and keep in the loop.

Follow the Money

There is an editorial split in the Guy Newsroom over Hunt: Neo-Guido thinks he’s politically toast, but Guido cannot see any LEGAL bullet that will force him out, yet. If you disagree Guido is the offer on Smarkets and is backing Hunt to survive. Come and take his money if you think he is wrong…

As it stands, punters think Hunt has a 36% chance of survival. Which is up from this morning…

“Only Ofcom To Go”

It’s going to be a very long day for Jeremy Hunt and Downing Street. Already just an hour in to his evidence the Culture Secretary has admitted he was  “sympathetic” to the bid, that he didn’t understand the process and that his SpAd Adam Smith knew his views on it all. One of the texts we will be hearing about a lot was from Hunt to James Murdoch when the European competition regulators approved the bid: ” Congratulations on Brussels. Just Ofcom to go.” That was the day he was appointed to oversee the bid…

UPDATE:

UPDATE II: Coulson, on oath again, said he didn’t have anything to do with Cable decision or BskyB, yet Hunt admits he was emailing and texting him about it.

UPDATE III: Hunt has conceded that he was communicating with News Corp through his private email address and that his DCMS account is not run by him.

Warsi’s War

There is a fascinating exchange of letters over at the Staggers between the Chairman of the Conservative Arab Network and Tory Chairman Sayeeda Warsi. They discuss Guido’s revelations about the group, and show how the exposé set off a chain of events that led to the troubles that Warsi is in right now:

This may be revenge, but that does not make it any less dangerous for Warsi…

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
