Guido Fawkes Paddy Power

Over at the Paddy Power Blog, Guido studies the form for a bet on the Next Tory Leader…


  1. 1
    Baroness Warsi says:

    First ?

  2. 2
    Kebab Time says:

    The only person that wins on betting is the bookie.

      Butterfly says:

      Local councils should be able to ban any more bookies from opening in their areas. They blight neighbourhoods and attract petty criminals. A total scourge on the nation’s High Streets.

      a non says:

      Pity it’s not a bet on the next Labour leader.
      One of the Eagle brothers as an each-way bet looks a certainty.

      Ah! Monika 2013 +1 says:

      I will defend your right to post bollocks 8illy.

      The are thousands of professional gamblers who make millions per year.

  3. 3
    London Cabbie says:

    Boris odds on for post 2015 when Cameron gets the boot.

  4. 6
    David 'tumbleweed' Cameron says:

    So you plebs don’t think I can stay the course, eh ?

    • 9
      Your mate Jesse, alright I know it's a girls name says:

      Nope sorry Dave and here’s a thought Cleggy boy is lining up for a nice EU pension, whereas you will be completely consigned to the fucking bin…

  5. 8
    The trendy left says:

    Can nobody get Owen Jones’s input on this ???

  6. 13
    Duty Pedant says:

    Are we talking about the ‘Tory Party’, or the ‘New Tory Party’?

  7. 14
    Jimmy says:

    That’s him screwed then.

  8. 14
    A Normal Person says:

    Paddy Power. I hope they saw Tessa Jowell OK for the gift she gave them in the 2005 Gambling Act. They are now able to set up shoo in High Streets pretty much anywhere they like, despite the opposition of local residents, the police, local ocncils and other local businesses. A bunch of mongs.

  9. 16
    It's my party so I will sware if I have to says:

    What a Jessie!

  10. 17
    Tony Blair says:

    What odds am I?

  11. 20
    Guido's select committee ball polisher says:

    So how much is Sir thinking of putting down ?

  12. 21
    Baffled Apostrophe says:

    GUIDO FAWKES’ ( or is it FAWKES’S )
    Exclusive Column.

  13. 26
    Moussa Koussa Mark 4 says:

    I see Jolly Hockey sticks fop Theresa Villiers gave a statement to commons regarding the appalling behaviour of British Ulster Loonysticks.

    …..but didn’t mention the term Unionists…once

  14. 29
    Buff the magic dolphin says:

    The saddest aspect to this development is that Paddy Power is likely the more reliable indicator of who will take leadership.

  15. 33
    Moussa Koussa Mark 4 says:


    it will upset “”The Conservative and Unionist Party of Great Britain and Northern Ireland”””


  16. 34
    Unemployed and skint in Birtley Colliery says:

    Is there a jon going around here?

  17. 36
    Moussa Koussa Mark 4 says:

    This is pricessless.

    Jesse AKA real name Alexander ( Tory politicians seem to dislike using first name , if it happens to be Alexander )

    I have seen ( but not read, obviously ) Alexander’s latest book “The Big Society”……..shhhhhhhhhhhh


  18. 37
    Owen Jones says:

    He has a bigger forehead than Cameron, if that were possible.

  19. 44
    big Mac says:

    Jesse perhaps a future stalking horse?
    Whether Dave stays or goes and Gove or Osborne or Boris or even Theresa throws their hat in the ring;- everything, but everything is dependent upon the future state of the UK.
    Each will sink or swim respective to their individual successes in their present jobs.

    Events,dear boy, events.

    Julian The Wonderhorse says:

    She does have an amazing singing voice, her Carmen arias are incredible. Thought she was American though

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.”
