Be here from 11.55 for fun and to throw rotten tomatoes…
Watch Daily Politics online here.
Everybody is Twittering nowadays, rolling news keeps on rolling frenetically and somewhat pointlessly. Perhaps instead you need to download the 4000 or so articles Guido has written in the last 4 years and sit on a beach under a tree. Get a Kindle and you can, it is like an iPod for text. (You can read things called books on it as well.)
You are either in front of Guido, or behind…
*Don’t forget it also turned out that the top-hatted Labour Party campaign worker turned out to be an ex-public schoolboy as well. Patronising working class white voters with a stupid knuckle-dragging campaign to elect a baronesses’ grand-daughter with acres in Wales seems hypocrisy on a monumental scale. On Thursday voters will see through it…
UPDATE 22.44 : Paxo just put this to Tamsin live on Newsnight – she looked unamused.
UPDATE 23.04 : Courtesy of an An Englishman’s Castle, we have Tamsin Dunwoody’s pile “Cwarre Dduon”, Ambleston, Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire.

“YouTube’s clip of chancellor Brown picking his nose is twice as popular as his PM’s debut last June.“Prime Minister Gordon Brown arrives at Downing Street
Views: 118,600 on the Downing Street YouTube channel
Prime Minister Gordon Brown picks his nose on budget day
Views: 233,649 on the Guido Fawkes’ YouTube channel
So you can teach an old dog new tricks…
The sage thought that if only a handful of members of the cabinet were to tell Brown to his face that he had to go for the sake of the party, that would be that. Jack Straw would be the man deputised to do the job. Brown has been a disaster for the Labour Party, he can’t be the change he promised, he is clearly physically and politically exhausted. Will Jack be the one to put him out of his misery on Friday?

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:
“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”
