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…

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
