Marr Book to Be Pulped

From the Bookseller yesterday

Macmillan Recalls Andrew Marr book

06.03.09 Katie Coyne

Pan Macmillan has issued an “urgent” stock recall notice on Andrew Marr’s A History of Modern Britain for legal reasons. Pan Macmillan md, Anthony Forbes Watson, refused to elaborate on what the legal issues around the recall were. It is understood that the publisher plans to re-issue the book when changes have been made.
This can only be because someone living is threatening to sue. Any co-conspirators have any idea?

UPDATE : Apparently Erin Pizzey is angry with Marr.

Jonah Effect Explains Oxford Gail’s Woes

She was nation’s brain box darling, sweeping all opposition aside on University Challenge and even impressing the permanently unimpressed Paxman. However disaster has struck and her team has been disqulaified on a technicality. Guido has found the cause of her troubles – a Prime Ministerial meeting. The accursed one-eyed son of the manse has struck again…

Was Obama Subtly Mocking Brown with the DVD Gifts?

You know sending an intern out to Blockbuster to buy 25 DVDs for Gordon’s gift and choosing “Psycho” and “Citizen Kane” might just be a dig at the Prime Mentalist. C’mon, Psycho?

Orson Welles’ Citizen Kane was based on the life of William Randolph Hearst. According to reviewers

The film traces the life and career of Charles Foster Kane, a man whose career in the publishing world is born of idealistic social service, but gradually evolves into a ruthless pursuit of power.

You see Guido’s point?

Fancy a Bet, Kev’?

Guido has remarked previously on Kevin “Make it Up” Maguire’s unhinged hatred of one particular frail old lady. In his (always a good read) New Statesman Diary column this week he insists
Maggie Thatcher’s salivating disciples, eagerly awaiting their heroine’s Downing Street resurrection, may soon be frothing and foaming instead. Richard Stone’s oil painting of the Rusty Lady will not be hung, as was widely anticipated, on No 10’s grand staircase. Once unveiled she will, I hear,* be confined to an attic – or, more specifically, a corner room up the stairs and left down the corridor. Once installed in the Thatcher Study, as the room in which she long toiled is known, Maggie will languish unseen except by escorted visitors.

If Kevin fancies a bet, Guido is willing to make a wager, for he has it on good authority that by June 4, 2010 at the very latest, Margaret Thatcher’s picture will be hanging in pride of place at the top of the grand staircase.

Back where she belongs – in Downing Street.

*“I hear” when written by Maguire in this context can be translated as “Damian McBride told me in the Westminster Arms”.

The Guidoisation of Politics Continues:
Tories Set-Up “Say Sorry On Behalf of Gordon” Website

Guido has pointed out before how the Tories draw some of their online ideas from the Obamocrats. Here they go again with www.Sorry from Gordon.com:

Which has a remarkable similarity to the Democrat’s recently launched I’m Sorry Rush website…
