Sexy A-Levels Top Totty Round Up

Guido was sad to hear of the demise of the Sexy A-Levels blog this morning. Ever one to give the public what they want, here is Guido’s very own definitive round up of this years top A-Level totty:

Top marks…

Guidogram Going Out Shortly

The Guidogram round-up of the week is going out shortly.

Thousands of Westminster insiders read the Guidogram, everyone from Downing Street insiders to Fleet Street never miss it. The Olympics might be over but there has been plenty going on in both Westminster and media land this week. Don’t miss out on a few silly season gems as well…

Guardian Management Restructuring Announced
Prioritises Not-So-Dead-Tree Edition

Guido understands an email went out to Guardian staff yesterday informing them that there is to be a ‘management restructuring’.. to achieve ‘a renewed focus on protecting and developing our print revenue’. Managing the decline might be more accurate.

Guido’s source thinks this is Rusbridger and the controlling clique on the board realising he’s spent shedloads too much on his over-staffed online folie de grandeur and presages a shift back to basics – the dead tree edition of the Guardian still brings in 75% of the revenue. For now…

UPDATE: Meanwhile the Guardian‘s head of media has been analysing the lads’ mag market.

If he’s using that logic for Nuts and co., he might want to have a look at the figures showing his own paper’s decline. In June the Guardian sold 211,911 copies, a 17.5% drop year-on-year.  Things are not all fine and Dandy…

They will face a preliminary hearing on 26th September.

The same day that Rebekah and Charlie Brooks are due in court…

Ashcroft Unravels Watson Spin

Last week Guido revealed how Corby’s latest resident Tom Watson was instructing Labour spinners to brief that the party expects to lose the upcoming by-election. At the time the Lobby could see straight through Tommo’s tricks:

Now the latest polling undertaken by Lord Ashcroft has confirmed that Watson was spouting rubbish. Labour have a huge 15 point lead in the up-for-grabs Northamptonshire seat, with a 9% swing from Blue to Red. UK Polling Report conclude: “Labour shouldn’t have any particular problem taking the seat“. It’s an open goal that they simply cannot miss…

Owen Paterson lifts the lid on the Green Blob:

“I received more death threats in a few months at Defra than I ever did as secretary of state for Northern Ireland.”



Flight Watch says:

Russia Today is a cauldron of bullsh*t. The only people that take it seriously are deluded conspiracy theorists. Other RT journos have resigned citing the same reasons.

It’s about as believable as Press TV, KCNA of North Korea or the Daily Mirror.
