Coulson’s Five A Day

What is it with Downing Street Heads of Communication? First we had Campbell’s cringe-worthy porno writing career and now Coulson’s getting his kit off. The high pressure atmosphere of a tabloid newsroom is often cited for various misdemeanours concerning the law. Now we know why Coulson was oblivious of what was going on – he was modelling for The Sun’s “Dear Deirdre” page:

Is Blair Making Up Dialogue With Queen?

The New York Times is claiming that the dialogue in Blair’s book A Journey” where the Queen says

“You are my 10th prime minister, the first was Winston. That was before you were born.”

Is based entirely on a fictional scene from the 2006 film “The Queen” starring Helen Mirren. An amazing coincidence reckons the film’s scriptwriter. Blair make something up to suit his purposes? Say it ain’t so…

David Plans Victory Party as Polls Peak

In the closing days punters are shifting decisively towards David Miliband becoming the next leader of the Labour Party and winning all three sections of the vote. The money is on him winning even the trade union block, despite the hundred grand Unite gave his little brother. A poll for the Daily Politics had him ahead amongst local councillors in addition to MPs, MEPs and members. It looks like he’s got it sewn up.

So it is no surprise then that he is already planning his victory party. Free day passes to Labour Conference for David Miliband supporters are being organised by his “Movement for Change” on the condition that they turn up to his rally being held on the 28th, the day after the result of the leadership election is announced. Despite caveating that the rally will go ahead whoever wins, it sounds a lot like a victory party…

Supporters are also invited to the new leader’s first conference speech, all free of charge. This isn’t the first time the front-runner has been quite so brazen. Despite promising a thousand community organisers would be trained by his campaign, he apparently had to flood his eve-of-voting-rally in London with members of left-wing group London Citizens. Guido imagines his opponents might have one or two things to say about potentially bribing supporters with free conference access…

PMQs Live: Clegg, Coulson and Shouty Straw Edition

Clegg To Replace DC at PMQS

David Cameron’s father Ian has had a stroke and the PM is currently en route to France to be with his family. After holiday and paternity leave it seems Clegg will be minding the shop a little longer. Last time he did PMQs he managed to substantially alter British foreign policy concerning the war and was slapped down. Even against Jack Straw, who put in a dire performance, he could only muster a  no score-draw. Presumably Harman will be yielding to her deputy again today…

Interestingly it will be Clegg will be taking the brunt of the Coulson heat. The LibDems stuck it to him during the election. Watch him change his tune now…

GPW Hotly Tipped for Post-Coulson Downing Street

Alastair Campbell once said you have eleven days to kill a story or you’re toast. The sustained effort to keep the Coulson story going might just be enough to push it over that mythical cut off point. The Indy’s Ian Birrell is a name floating around as a replacement. He was in the running to be Dave’s official spokesman and is known to be close to the PM. However, word reaches Guido, from usually reliable sources, that George Pascoe Watson – the former Sun man, now spinning at Portland PR, is sought after by some in Downing Street, potentially replacing one former Murdoch man with another. The problem is he is currently on over twice what the PM earns, so CCHQ might have to supplement the difference…

It was often said that Coulson was merely on loan from News International. What would he do if he did return to the fold? There would be a certain irony if he were dispatched across the Atlantic to oversee the Murdoch assault on the New York Times…

Piggies Catch Prezza Porkies

In giving evidence to the Home Affairs Select Committee, Yates of the Yard has thrown a spanner into the Labour spin machine as it tries to keep the Coulson story going.  John Prescott has made a  song and dance of the fact his phone was “hacked” – a fact flatly denied by the police. He is not on the list of suspected victims. Prezza has been caught telling porkies…

If Prezza isn’t on it, claims by Chris Bryant are looking shaky, as are the rumours that Mandy and even Blair were on the list.  If this was true Guido would rather a newspaper was quick to spot the security flaws and not Iranian intelligence. The Labour Party are obviously so keen to make capital out of this issue that they aren’t going to let a pesky bit of truth get in the way. Though it’s funny the sudden change of heart that Alan Johnson has had. While he was Home Secretary he was adamant that there was no grounds for an inquiry and there was nothing he could do, yet he has taken a very different tone in opposition. Many wondered why Johnson didn’t run for leader and perhaps now, without such a great need to keep News International’s tabloids away, we might read why exactly Alan Johnson was so keen to avoid confrontation with Coulson’s former employers while in office.

No Vacancy on Downing Street

Officially there is no vacancy. Officially Andy Coulson has the full support of the PM and the government machine. Officially he isn’t going anywhere. Unofficially last night was quite the flurry of activity.

He may not be going anywhere just […]
