New ConHome Line-Up Announced

ConservativeHome have bolstered their ranks following the departure of Tim Montgomerie. Mark Wallace, best known for his excellent TV appearances at the TPA and IOD and as the blogger behind CrashBangWallace, joins as Executive Editor. As expected Paul Goodman is Editor. Boris biographer Andrew Gimson is appointed Contributing Editor, and Iain Dale now has a weekly diary. At last some new competition…

    Abbott and Half truths says:

    Wot Fatbott forgot to say that they banned North African Muslims for security intelligence reasons while the Israeli leader was in the French station.

      FACT Abbott IS divisive says:

      Would she have tweeted if a group of whities had been kept away for security reasons?

      We know the answer.

      Dick the Prick says:

      And that has what to do with Hackney? Oh, that’s right – fuck all!

      • 13
        For that matter.. says:

        What has Abbot got to do with Hackney? Once every five years she curdles the residents’ milk by sticking her photo through their letterboxes with a note saying, “vote for me and get lots of other people’s money”, and that’s about it.

          Dick the Prick says:

          Just in theory but would ya? You know, if your life depended on it, would ya? It’s the Tina Turner question, really. A couple of bottles of cooking sherry and I might man up and clamber on, wouldn’t be happy about it but might.

      You should get out and about more!

      • 18
        Mitch says:

        I think he does – that’s why he hasn’t heard of Mark Wallace.

        • 26
          Tay King-dePisse says:

          Actually, I was referring to stopping into some of Guido’s more frequented establishments of a libationary nature, where one undoubtedly runs into many of those whose projects Guido sees fit to publicise.

          I.E., Go hang out where Guido does, Mitch, and you’d meet these people.

      52000 Morons In A Nation Of 63 Million says:

      Time was you would have to shift a load of records to get a No 2 placing on the charts, now, it only takes 52000 teachers, social workers, labour councillors and associated a*seh*les to put a bunch of dead dwarves into a chart position and at the same time, put money into the pocket of Mr Rupert Murdoch…..some ironies are just priceless.

      • 23
        Let The Guardian Die says:

        That`s nothing mate, if you sell only 220000 copies a day you can still claim to be a “National” newspaper… BAHAHAHAHAHAA !!!!

      • 32
        Scratcher says:

        except the song isn’t owned by any Rupert Murdoch company.

        try not believing everything Louise Mensch tweets, it just makes you look like a moron.

    Iron Lady vs Iron Man says:

    Fucking disgrace. The Iron Lady delays premiere of the Iron Man.

    The UK premiere of Iron Man 3 has been pushed back due to Baroness Thatcher’s funeral.

    A Disney spokesperson told Deadline the London gala, originally scheduled for Wednesday, would be moved to Thursday to avoid the clash.

    “London will basically be in traffic chaos and it would have been difficult logistically,” the spokesperson said.

    Many roads in central London will be closed and large crowds are expected to line the procession route.

      Village Idiot says:

      “Wow”, the “Iron Lady” shunts the “Iron Man”, incredible…It is such a pleasure to
      hear the anger,bile and venom from the left..My God,she certainly got under their skin…Long may it continue…I’m enjoying this,I’m enjoying this.!!!!(i hope my pleasure at the lefts discomfort,doesn’t make me as twisted as them.)

    John Walsh says:

    A strong team for the fight ahead. 2015 should be the battleground we focus on now.

  13. 33
    Scratcher says:

    might get you to up your game a bit Guido.

    Obsessing over the non story which is Chuka is pretty boring now.

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.”
