So Long Calamity Kenny
Departing Spinner’s Greatest Hits

Guido’s favourite Labour spinner Kenny Young has departed Team Miliband. Apparently “after five years it’s time to do something different”. Calamity Kenny shot to fame when he was snapped, literally, waiting on hand and foot for Gordon. After being involved in Duffygate he joined Team Ed for the Labour leadership battle and again had some trouble with doors. When Ed won Kenny went from Head of Press to Press Office Manager, but his finest hour was still to come – his now infamous Blackbusters tweet which was written from his boss’ account:

So long Kenny, we’ll miss ya…

    Who hired him? was it you?

    Gordon Brown says:

    Kenny can come and work in my Icecream Van anytime

    Louise Mensch [née Bagshawe] says:

    Her was clearly trying to cop a perv up the blonde woman’s skirt!

    Gordon Brown says:

    Quick Kenny get these wretched things away from me, they smell of perfume and hormones

    Gordon for one happy moment thought Kenny was on his knees for another reason.

    All these posts – keen to move away from la Mensch, are you Greedo?

    Poor girl. Seems like all these photoshoots, tight skirts, and stilettos didn’t work out for her.

    Perhaps she should have consulted an Edwina? Just asking.

        Its moussa again. Pissed off that he’ll never get parachuted into a constituency and live the cushy life of an MP. Jealous that someone could throw away the single most cherished thing he could imagine.

      Guido takes his orders from Tory HQ. “Drop mensch threads, asap”

      And Geedo will do as his told. Plank

        Oh God! What a predictable fucking no-life wanker you are.

        I think we’re all sick to the back teeth with your tedious predictable shilling so why don’t you just shut the fuck up?

    Cartman says:

    Oh my God! Who killed Kenny?

    Proof – if it were needed, that Cameron’s Twitter jibe can work in reverse. “Too many twats making tweets”

    Ed Millibland says:

    What Bob Holness has died, why did no-one tell me?

    Clegg mania. How perceptive.

    Mrs Bone says:

    When my husband asked the PM who would run the country, if he were incapacitated? he declined to answer.

    What would his answer be in light of the deputies behavior today.

    So Young Kenny leaves and nobody grieves, the next Spinner is waiting to spin into his empty chair. I often think in such times would they all fight to jump into his coffin.

    LOL. Operation “Mensch Distraction” is in full flow.

    Poor Guido, once a maverick, now a Tory HQ poodle…shame

      go on then. tell us why that story is so interesting?

      I mean: it might have been a mistake to favour her so much as an “A-lister”, but after all, she didn’t get promoted any further, and indeed with her statements being a little hit and miss, and only being in politics for a very short time, thats not surprising at all.

      Its a story of minor interest because she gets herself noticed on TV etc., other than that, not very interesting to me.

        WHY !!!!

        • Tory MP has resigned

        • Guaranteed lost seat for Tories

        • Mongo typifies all that is wrong with Daves “A” List Boll*cks

        • A so called rising Tory hard hitting star; turns out to be a pathetic weakling

        • She is to become an immigrant ( Don’t tell Daily Mail, Express etc )

        ….anything else

          I really hope that IS you Jonty, because the world would be a worse place if there was someone else as excitable as you hanging around.

          Her chief talents were Tweeting night and day (seems like) and getting sad old nutters prosecuted for Shooting their mouths off. Corby residents weren’t too impressed with her attention to constituency concerns, I gather. Oh, and the chick lit.

          Really difficult to say how covering or not covering her exit (on the uncontroversial grounds of family commitments) makes much difference to anyone.

    Nick Clegg. Why kick a man when he’s down?

    Moussa Koussa says:


    Can we please have a nut case right wing thread about migrants and immigration.

    Mo Farrah – Born – Mogadishu, Somali.

    Beth Tweedle – Born in South Africa

    Jessica Ennis – Father migrant from Jamaica.

    Christine Ohuruogu – Parents, migrants from Nigeria.

    Murry and Coy – Scottish

    Louise Mensch – Migrating to USA

    Multiculturalism is alive and well, you fu*ckwit Neo Con Loons.
