Guido is finding it difficult to keep up to date with reports of Brown’s post-visit accursed effects. Co-conspirators email them in almost daily. If Guido can find the time he is going to plot them on a map as we did before with Where’s Gordon?™.
Here are two recent examples of the curse in terrible action:
Liverpool radio DJ Phil Easton dies after interviewing Gordon
The prime minister has led the tributes to legendary Liverpool broadcaster Phil Easton. Gordon Brown was recently interviewed by him for his show on CityTalk. The PM said: “Phil was an accomplished and talented broadcaster who was on the top of his game when we met just a few weeks ago.Source : Liverpool Echo
Workers face axe at Cwmbran PM visit factory
Around 40 workers at a Cwmbran factory are set to lose their jobs, just weeks after the firm was visited by Prime Minister Gordon Brown. Cwmbran’s Contour Premium Aircraft Seating announced a “proposed head count reduction” of up to 40 employees on Wednesday.Source : South Wales Argus
Is Guido the only one to notice that after Downing Street boasted that Gordon was the first world leader to call Obama, the U.S. President began pushing a “Buy America” bill. Gordon talked to Obama about the dangers of protectionsim.
Guido’s co-religionist, Tony Blair, was in Washington today to bless the Obamessiah. Tony was witty, articulate and respected.
Guido never liked Tony, but he wasn’t a national embarrassment, he was Prime Ministerial. Can you imagine Gordon stumbling over his words, banging his head against the microphone, calling the new president George. You get the cringe-worthy picture. No wonder Obama wanted Tony.
You will be disappointed to know that Guido has obtained no photos from last night’s Tory Black & White Ball. Cameron and Coulson were determined that no glossy glamorous photos should leak out in these credit crunch times…
Any co-conspirators in a position to help?
UPDATE : Not a single snap has been forthcoming. The prospect of power clearly brings discipline. Guido remembers when the Tories were fun…
UPDATE II : Rumour has it that the Daily Star has pictures tomorrow. Sam Cam is finally a Star-bird. She will be thrilled.
Charles Clarke claims in an interview in the New Statesman that Tony Blair “wanted me to be foreign secretary because he thought that if I had been foreign secretary and home secretary I would be a credible opponent to Gordon, as the leader of the party. And this had been his long-standing strategy, and that was what he had been intending to do, and that’s what he hoped to do.”
Funny, he is rumoured to have wanted exactly the same for David Miliband. Who to believe?
At PMQs Brown said: “We should agree as a world on a monetary and fiscal stimulus that will take the world out of r… depression.”
Like when he said he had “saved the world”, it gives an insight into what he is really thinking…
UPDATE : Worldwide the press are starting to latch on to the first world leader to talk openly of a “depression”.
Gordon’s confesses his guilt here.
The polling was done in 60 Labour-held marginals.
And the polling was bad in 2008…
Propeller-Head Wonk Watch: The National Institute of Economic and Social Research is predicting the UK economy will shrink until the fourth quarter of this year, contradicting the Chancellor’s optimistic forecast for the economy to come out of recession in July.
Commissioner Sir Paul Stephenson has, Guido understands, had in his in-tray since early December a letter of complaint over this:
Legally there is no “statute of limitations” for the offence of “Procuring Misconduct in Public Office”, so Brown could
