Whitehall Source Says Cabinet Tomorrow Morning Cancelled

Developing…

Barro-so Silly

Deluded communist idiot” (Farage, 2012) and EU boss Jose Manuel Barroso claims he has launched a new Twitter account today. Barroso’s spokesman was quick to boast about the man-with-no-mandate’s new-found popularity:

…Roughly translating as “the new Twitter account of the EU President has gained nearly 5,000 followers in less than 20 minutes“. The only problem being that the account isn’t new at all, has been open for over a year and already had a large number of followers before today. Nice try…

Just like Prezza…
Clegg Confirms He Will Turn Down Peerage

Asked by Dennis Skinner on whether he would accept a seat in the Lords, Nick Clegg at first tried to joke that he would not be very welcome given what he has said about the upper chamber, but was pinned down and confirmed that it would “stick in the throat” for him to accept the honour having apparently campaigned against it all his life. Presumably a nice job in the unelected EU will suit his democratic outlook though…

Clegg did leave himself some wriggle room by  saying he would not accept the seat in an “unreformed House of Lords.” Such caveats never worried Prezza, Clegg’s predecessor as Deputy Prime Minister, though. We’ll hold him to this one…

Davis: Osborne’s Eleventh Hour

Pushed after his speech on whether he has confidence in George Osborne, David Davis stayed just the right side of loyal given he had spent the last half hour providing a comprehensive take down of the Chancellor. Apparently “he is clever enough, smart enough to do what needs to be done“.

The old timer did set a de facto deadline of the autumn statement for the right thing to be done though – the right thing presumably being Davis plan in full. He would not be drawn on what would happen if bold action was not taken, but that one went without saying…

Davis and Redwood Savage Osborne

Bumping into John Redwood over a prawn sandwich this lunchtime, Guido put some questions to the seasoned Tory brain on the imminent government movements. Redwood wearily accepted that the “faces will remain the same” so “it’s what […]

Quote of the Day

Adam Spiegel, producer of Nazi themed “The Producers” musical says…

“Margate seemed a perfect place to start the promotion. I’m disappointed but not entirely surprised to see that UKIP are trying to hitch a publicity ride on the back of the show.”
