MPs to Debate “Great Gordon Brown Repeal Bill”

How good it was of the Prime Mentalist to turn up yesterday. Here is one he will no doubt want to skip however: the Great Gordon Brown Repeal bill is to be debated in Parliament next week. The proposal to reverse Labour’s scrapping of the 10p tax rate will be discussed by MPs at 2:30pm next Tuesday. Guido hears Gordon will be receiving a formal invitation…

Another Pollster has UKIP in Third, and Not Just for the Euros

The old guard laughed when newbie pollsters Survation started showing an ascendancy pattern for the UKIP vote last year, yet today a  third pollster has UKIP at around 20% for the Euro elections and now they are giving Nick Clegg a kicking on the home front too. Ipsos Mori report that the party are beating the LibDems into fourth place on general election voting intentions. There is hardly cause for celebration for Ed Miliband either – 75% of Tories are satisfied with Cameron but just 53% of Labour supporters are happy with their leader. Bad news all round for the pro-EU parties.

Quote of the Day

Rod Liddle in tomorrow’s Spectator:

“One of these days, not too far away, the entire bourgeois bien-pensant left will self-immolate entirely leaving behind nothing but a thin skein of smoke smelling slightly of goji berries. Please let that day come quickly. In the meantime let us simply enjoy ourselves watching them tear each other to pieces, mired in their competing victimhoods, seething with acquired sensitivity, with inchoate rage and fury, inventing more and more hate crimes with which they might punish people who are not themselves.”

Cabinet Office Royal Cover-Up: Charles’ Spy Stays Secret

Guido has spoken to numerous sources at the Cabinet Office over the last few days, all of whom seemed surprised to be told that Prince Charles has a secret employee on secondment in the department. Two said they had no idea who the mystery man was and one even asked Guido if he had any more information that could help find him. At last this afternoon the Cabinet Office went on the record on the issue for the first time:

“We cannot give out any information about who the person is or what they are doing here. We can’t give out anything that could lead to his identity being revealed.”

The excuse that anything other than complete opaqueness could lead to Charles’ point man being revealed to the world is hardly satisfactory. What are his responsibilities at the Cabinet Office? How long has he been working there? How much is he being paid? And, most importantly, why is an employee of the Household of the Prince of Wales on secondment in the heart of government? Questions Guido will be putting to them in FoI form this afternoon…

Speaker Says Bye Bye to £1.5 Million Barber

Outgoing TUC fat cat Brendan Barber is still hanging around like a bad smell. Guido understands that last night the Speaker held a leaving party in his taxpayer-funded state apartment for the £100,000-a-year union baron. The drink was flowing as the usual union thugs like Ian Lavery and John Bercow’s old pal Jack Dromey said goodbye to their strike-happy former boss. Tories are spitting feathers this morning that union-lover Rob Halfon was also in attendance. As if Barber’s £1.5 million golden goodbye was not enough…
