A BBC editor has said that the Tories are “lower than vermin”.

BBC Editor: “Tories are Lower Than Vermin”

Guido was not well-versed in the career of Martin Plaut before today, but he can already tell the BBC World Service Africa editor has a penchant for perfect timing. In a Q&A Plaut was asked “who do you hate and why?” His response was, well, rather straight to the point:

“Tories.

As Aneurin Bevan said: ‘No amount of cajolery, and no attempts at ethical or social seduction, can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred for the Tory Party. So far as I am concerned they are lower than vermin.’”

Charming…

Chuka Adviser Agreed Entwistle Pay Off…While Watching Strictly

£110,000-a-year part-timer Lord Patten has hardly endeared himself to critics by signing off George Entwistle’s £450,000 golden goodbye. But who were the other guilty men and women who helped make the decision?

During this weekend’s episode of Strictly Come Dancing Patten held a conference call with lawyers and two members of the BBC Trust’s remuneration committee, Anthony Fry and Diane Coyle.

Taking a leaf out of her boss’ book, Coyle is paid £70,610-a-year of license fee payers’ cash to work just two and a half days a week for the BBC. And what does she do in her spare time, other than watching Strictly with a glass of red that is? Last year Coyle was an unpaid adviser to none other than Chuka Umunna, helping the two-faced shadow business secretary with his policy review.

Chuka was quick to criticise Phillip Schofield but has been oddly quiet about the former BBC DG…

UPDATE: Coyle has got in touch to clarify that she was actually drinking white wine, not red.

UPDATE II: And here’s the proof:

Jury Finds Moran Committed 15 Counts of False Accouting

Hardly a surprise but good news nonetheless that a jury has found former Labour MP Margaret Moran fiddled her expenses to the tune of £53,000. She committed 15 counts of false accounting and six counts of using a false instrument, though the jury were instructed they could not find her guilty due to her mental health. She will be sentenced at a later date…

Tories Go For Bureau’s Jugular

The Tories have upped the attacks on the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, mainly by pointing out the fact that their funder David Potter is a Labour donor. They have put down an EDM and circulated briefing notes on the troubled group’s finances. Nothing to do with this of course:

While the URL would suggest the that the small Labour/unions story was a last-minute attempt at balance, you can see where the grudge came from. Making party political attacks on the Bureau will have the opposite effect that the Tories want. One way to make the Bureau’s dwindling supporters group stick together is for CCHQ to go for their jugular. The Bureau was imploding by itself…

Parliament Invites Lords to “Speed Date” Teenagers

Spectacularly badly timed:

Dear Lord ███████

Political Speed Dating Event – Thursday 22nd November

As part of Parliament Week 2012 we are holding a ‘Political Speed Dating’ event where a group of 13-16 year olds will have the rare opportunity to chat in small groups with current Parliamentarians.

The session will run at 10.30am to 11.45am in the Macmillan Room in Portcullis House, and it would be wonderful for the students if you were available to participate. We are inviting Members of both Houses from all parties and the event will involve up to 10 Members. We have extended the invitation to several members and I hope that you are able to participate.

Please contact me if I can provide any further information about the session, I hope to hear from you soon.

Yours sincerely,

Dawn Hatch

Well that was pretty poorly worded given the current climate.

Quote of the Day

Former Miliband guru Arnie Graf reveals Labour’s disconnect with the working class:

“On one of my trips to the U.K. in the autumn of 2013, I bumped into one of Ed’s strategists in Portcullis House. He asked me if I was assisting the staff on Ed’s trip that was to take place in a few days to one of the regions. I told him that I did not have knowledge of his planned trip.

He told me that Ed was going to give a talk at the region’s annual fund raising dinner and that prior to the dinner he had invited the media to join him at a local coffee shop to listen to a conversation he planned to have with a minimum wage worker. The point of the conversation was to show how difficult it was for a minimum wage worker to get on in life.

There was only one problem. No one had been able to locate a minimum wage worker for Ed to talk with.”
