Nude Sun Intern Happy to Take Her Kit Off

The Guardian have been trying to out-tabloid the Sun this afternoon, running a scurrilous story claiming the paper has denied nude Harry photo intern Sophie Henderson was forced to strip off. Now sexy Sophie has issued her own statement:

“For anyone worried about whether we were forced against our will to strip off, we are pleased to be able to set the record straight. Please be assured, there is no cover-up at Wapping. It was a bit of harmless fun and we were delighted to have played our part in making the readers laugh.”

Cheeky…

Boris says he doesn’t want it, now Gove follows suit. Guess that just leaves George Osborne then…

Labour Wonks v Page 3 Girls

Labour wonk-shop IPPR have declared war on the Sun‘s Page 3 girls as they publish a report claiming that the government’s bleeding of motorists via high fuel taxes is just a “myth“. Earlier this week the Sun girls jumped on board the Taxpayers’ Alliance campaign to freeze fuel duty by showing their support at petrol stations up and down the country. Now IPPR has hit back, laughably arguing that the Chancellor “should make every effort to avoid further delays in fuel duty increases“. Will’s argument is unconvincing and not likely to be taken up by the Labour Party. “Vote Labour for higher petrol taxes” is a CCHQ dream slogan…

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. This week Guido did what no one else dared and published the naked photos of Prince Harry. It’s not one to miss out on…

1% Union Fat Cat Gives £10,000 to Labour

Not content with his union’s £6 million worth of donations to the Labour Party since Ed Miliband became leader, Unite political director Steve Hart forked out £10,000 of his own money to the party in the last quarter. That’s despite Ed pledging to limit all donations to political parties – including those from trade unions – to just £5,000. Hart, who backed Ken Livingstone for the London mayoralty while describing the capital as an “incoherent basket case of a city“, reckons he’s a man of the people:

Guido wonders how many other members of the 99% could afford to throw away £10,000 of their own cash…

Labour MP Survives Car Sabotage Attempt

Labour MP John Mann has been left thanking his lucky stars after he evaded death when his car was sabotaged by thieves. Unbelievably Mann managed to drive 200 miles along the A1 with the wheel nuts removed from each of his car’s four tyres, with a front wheel falling off luckily only once he had reached his destination. The sweating scourge of Bob Diamond said:

“The consequences of this madness do not bear thinking about. I and others could easily have been killed. Nobody could have spotted that the wheel nuts had been removed, which makes the callous nature of the crime even worse.”

Granted Mann is annoying, but trying to bump him off seems a bit extreme…

Harry Photo Mock-Up Nude Sun Intern Revealed

The decision in the Sun newsroom as to whether to run the Harry pics went down to the wire, but in the end they went for a mock-up involving reporter Harry Miller and a Sun fashion intern, Sophie Henderson.

Judging by this photo of her on her own blog (right), Guido has a good idea why she got the job…

Eddie Izzard, in his thirteenth year involved in politics, says he’s not cursed because it took Sir Alex Ferguson “seven years to win the premiership so it doesn’t really matter.”



cynic says:

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
