It’s Kerry

John Kerry will been nominated by Obama to replace Hillary Clinton. The office of Secretary of State should be more than a safe haven for Democrat presidential losers. Interestingly the first white male to hold the job since 1997.

Polly Toynbee Bashes Balls
Predicts Possible Pre-Election Putsch By Miliband

Bad news for Balls as Polly Toynbee says out-loud what many on the left are already thinking. How, when Balls is so tainted with economic disaster could he possibly remain as Shadow Chancellor for the next election?

By the same logic, surely Miliband is equally covered in the Brown-stuff?

Guardian Live Blog Their Own Demise

The morning after we learn that the Mail Online now has almost double the reach of the Guardian, Kings Place’s finest are pouring precious resources into Live Blogging the ‘end of the world':

Guido is sure that those facing the chop in editorial this Christmas find the whole thing hilarious.

Andrew Mitchell V the World

Not content with claiming to have his honour all but restored, important to a man with such a long and distinguished military career, Andrew Mitchell is stepping up his fight and going directly after Met boss Bernard Hogan Howe. As Guido pointed out the other day, the heat is on the Commissioner after his very public backing of the officers involved, despite the fact that even the Police Federation are running for the hills now. Mitchell says he has ‘no confidence’ in Hogan Howe, but how he can totally clear his name still remains to be seen. Perhaps one of them should hire the services of Jon Gaunt, the former DJ, who did spin wonders for the Police Federation’s campaign back in the autumn…

Gyles Brandreth writes in his memoirs:

“Sunday, May 10, 1998

Early start: appearing on Breakfast With Frost, to be broadcast from 11 Downing Street. The Chancellor [Gordon Brown] is grouchily amiable, but so earnest — and still biting his fingernails to the quick.

After the show, he took us upstairs to his flat. He lives above No 10, while Blair and family are in the No 11 duplex, which is bigger and more like a proper house.

I was intrigued that, when he took us into his bedroom, the Chancellor rather ostentatiously opened the built-in wardrobes, as if he wanted us to see the women’s frocks that were hanging in there.

They looked quite large, but I don’t think they belong to Gordon. I assume they belong to his girlfriend [Sarah Macaulay, who he later married].

I presume he was keen for us to know that he has one — and that she’s not a ‘beard’. I don’t think he does anything without calculation.”

Now the SNP know how UKIP voters feel all the time.
