    The only person that wins on betting is the bookie.

      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.

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

    David 'tumbleweed' Cameron says:

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

      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…

    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’?

    Jimmy says:

    That’s him screwed then.

    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.

    It's my party so I will sware if I have to 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

    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.

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

The Economist asks Tony Blair about Wendi Deng:

“Mr Blair roundly denies any impropriety. Asked whether he was (at least) careless about his reputation, he says calmly that it is “not something I will ever talk about—I haven’t and I won’t”, and then bangs his coffee cup so loudly into its saucer that it spills and everyone in the room jumps. But did he find himself in a tangle over his friendship with Ms Deng? A large, dark pool of sweat has suddenly appeared under his armpit, spreading across an expensive blue shirt. Even Mr Blair’s close friends acknowledge that the saga damaged him—not least financially, since Mr Murdoch stopped contributing to Mr Blair’s faith foundation and cut him off from other friendly donors in America.”
