Steve Field Scoop Confirmed
Prime Minister’s Spokesman Quitting for IMF

Guido was savaged when he wrote this piece back in May. No.10 denied the story on the basis that he hadn’t walked that day. Today the Prime Minister’s Spokesman Steve Field has announced he’s departing to join the IMF. A possible job Guido tweeted as follow up back in May. You’re either in front of Guido or…

UPDATE: Lest we forget what they said at the time:

    Is that a competition? Ok, let me try:

    You’re either in front of Guido, or you’re wondering where the sun went?

    ..o or your — like the favourite — all behind

    Gordon Brown MP says:

    As we speak, Mr Speaker, I have lopped one head off the global financial crisis hydra that is threatening to engulf us all, but even now another grows in its place. Luckily Prudence is fortifying my loins, along with her lipstick lesbian chum, Fiscal Rectitude, and I feel ready for battle once more.

    ..or you are stuffing yourself on banchan

    Mark Oaten says:

    You can be in front of me if you like, Guido, I don’t bite. Blocking out the sun with your manly presence. And you can do one of those big solar flare thingies if you like. Right in [CENSORED BY G BROWN MP].

    Dont believe being in front of or behind is the problem here.
    More a question of deciding to be under Dave or under Christine Lagarde. No brainer.

    depends on the size of her growler

    Correlation is not necessarily causation, Guido, but as Mr Field has been deemed suitable to join a snakes nest of Enarqes, further doubt must be thrown on CMD’s Cast Iron intent to keep his distance over the Euro.

    Perhaps Dave needs a friend in the enemies camps.
    What with the French OECD on the one hand trying to stack the deck promoting Euro interests and Standard and Poor or Moody’s on the USA side trying to stimulate and promote the dollar- the IMF as umbrella organisation can swing some backing for George and his attempts and hopes to prop up the pound.

    Or maybe Dave needs a friend in the enemies canapes. Muumy used to prop up the washing line. Charles occasionally props up the wall.

    Preparation for when we go the IMF next year

    Forkbender says:

    Well it looks as if all Dave’s yes men are leaving but how many more to go, not quite 21/2 years gone, are they looking around to see when and where to jump ship

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
