Leaked Tory Memo: Cable "Roasted" and "Damaged Lib Dems"

As the fallout from Clegg’s singing dominates Westminster, Vince Cable’s own positioning on the mea culpa has been forgotten. One line of CCHQ’s internal press summary for last night really sticks out. The internal blue verdict on Vince’s Newsnight appearance is stinging:

“Cable was serious [sic] roasted and further damaged the Lib Dems in an attempt to cover himself.” 

No sympathy there it seems…

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. Don’t miss out on Nick Clegg going viral, Ken Clarke’s candid Carlton Club confessions and Lord Sugar joining Guido for a laugh at Piers Morgan’s expense.

IDS muses:

“Nothing demoralises me. I was leader of the Conservative Party.”

LibDems Split on Cleggapology

Nick Clegg’s apology was always going to split opinion outside of LibDem land, but it seems internally it’s going to make things a bit awkward. Never one to position himself as a challenger to his leader, back in March closet veggie Tim Farron insisted the LibDems shouldn’t be saying sorry:

Farron has decency in his DNA apparently. Remember that if he stabs his leader…

Indy's Parliamentary Sketchwriting Shifts Leftwards

The Indy’s march to the left continues. They have replaced long-standing parliamentary sketchwriter Simon Carr, who had robustly sound views, with left-leaning Donald MacIntyre (pictured wearing glasses), who is being recalled back from Jerusalem. His politics are left-wing to the extent that he was close enough to Mandelson in his Lobby days to write his biography.

Don is the sober more thoughtful father of James MacIntyre and in more politically incorrect times he was once voted the sexiest man in the Lobby by the hackettes – some say Maggie fancied him. MacIntyre may not be quite as acerbic or non-partisan as the much-missed Simon Carr, but given his clout he should be a big enough figure to tell the editor Chris Blackhurst to get lost if he tries any editorial bossing about. Getting rid of Carr means there is one less reason to read the Indy…

Frankie Slashes Civil Service Pay

IPPR have been given a taster of what Francis Maude will be expecting of them this morning. New figures show that the number of civil servants earning over £150,000 has fallen dramatically in the last twelve months. The salary bill for senior government officials has been slashed by 18%, saving some £9 million. The civil servant who raked in the most cash was Olympics boss Dennis Hone, who pocketed £315,000 for his troubles. The 234 still share almost £50 million between them…
