Twitter Media Bitch Fight: Brillo v Paul Mason

Newsnight must not exactly be the most relaxed place to work at the moment, and the cracks showed as the Beeb’s favourite communist hero-worshipper Paul Mason lost it with Andrew Neil:

Priceless Plastic: 59% support Shelbrooke’s Welfare Card

Tory MP Alec Shelbrooke’s 10 Minute Rule Bill to introduce a welfare cash card for benefit claimants, especially those on JSA (but excluding disability payments and the basic state pension,) has gone down like a cup of cold sick with the left this afternoon. The food stamp 2.0 would see restrictions placed on booze, fags and Sky TV et cetera, and ensure the safety net was just that. Shelbrooke told the House earlier:

“This is about benefit distribution and spending, not benefit allocation. It encourages responsible spending by welfare claimants; ensuring taxpayers’ money is spent wisely and for the purpose it is intended. Delivering Beveridge’s vision of a temporary security net by using benefits to create a society of strivers”.

Mitchell Fingers Randall


At the height of the Mitchell scandal Guido broke the news that Deputy Chief Whip John Randall was threatening to resign if Mitchell did not go. Despite various denials, Randall was hauled over the coals in No. 10. Now the news is emerging via Patrick Wintour that Randall had a hand in the original story coming out. And even more interestingly, Channel Four news have that tape:

“It is understood that Channel 4 will show the CCTV recording of Mitchell’s encounter with the armed officers when he was refused permission to wheel his bike through the gates. The recording, which is silent, is understood to show Mitchell exchanging words with the officers. But it is understood that there are no signs of an angry confrontation in the recording, which reportedly shows that Mitchell wheeled his bike through the side entrance when officers declined to allow him to use the main gates.”

Guido’s theory is that Mitchell Subject Data Access Requested the CCTV footage and has passed it on. This is the story that just keeps on giving…

WATCH: ‘Dr’ Eoin Clarke Lies Slammed in Commons

Rob Wilson is twisting the knife over his opposite number’s refusal to apologise for repeating Eoin Clarke’s lies in PMQs. Jeremy Hunt’s PPS has raised a point of order demanding that Debbie Abrahams correct the record over her claim that Virgin Care is a donor to the Tories. Despite being warned in advance Abrahams failed to turn up in the Commons this afternoon, and has yet to respond to Wilson’s letter. She can run but she can’t hide…

Don’t Yeo Forget It


Conflicted Energy and Climate Change select committee chairman Tim Yeo is at it again today:

“Lumbering the economy with a centralised power system largely reliant on gas would be like running an office using a fax machine in the age of the iPad.

Quote of the Day

Trump jokes about media bias…

“The media is even more biased against me than ever before. You want the proof? Michelle Obama gives a speech and everyone loves it. It’s fantastic. They think she’s absolutely great. My Wife Melania gives the exact same speech! And people get on her case! And I don’t get it! I don’t know Why!”
