Watson Replaced on Labour NEC by Former Brown SpAd

How’s this for the dawn of a new politics? Tom Watson has been replaced on Labour’s ruling NEC by Jon Ashworth: a former Brown Special Adviser who was parachuted into a safe Labour seat at a by-election.

“Johnny Sparkle” used to be in charge with liaising with the unions for the party, and as the Standard once noted, his contact book is “stuffed with constituency officers and union organisers”. Continuity Labour.

    The good souls who leave comments at Guidos are a rowdy bunch,

    Whether its a full blown scandal or a Westminster lunch,

    The asterisk mob

    Have a fearful sized gob,

    But they pack a tremendous punch.

    So why have I come to cherish these divergent views?,

    When I am curious about something it is there that I choose,

    The views that are expressed,
    Are got off so many chests,

    They help us all see below the surface of the news.

    This offered appears to be in order to recieve an enormous ammount of visitors. How would you get targeted prospects to it? It gives a pleasant exceptional spin in points. I assume possessing anything at all authentic as well as substantial to speak about is the most important factor.

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.”
