Punters Favour Winter Exit for Brown

Punters on Betfair make a post party conference exit for Brown favourite at 5/2, with the odds on him lasting another year lengthening to 9/1. Could he be shown the door under the guise of ill-health? The contempt in which he is held in private by his own party is pitiful.

Guido suspects (hopes) Gordon will last until the general election…

The Most Unlikely Civil Liberties Defender of All!

These David Davis supporters are brilliant, guitar strumming punks for liberty. The band – Billy Ruffian – are very good. Wack up the volume:

Fantastic lyrics:

I think that maybe I’ve been taking pills,
‘cos David Davis is acting like John Stuart Mills,
And in taking on Brown, Dacre and Murdoch,
The establishment are in a difficult spot.

“I’m making out my political will,
By opposing the anti-terrorism bill,
But the government wish to rid us of Habeas Corpus,
So if you believe in freedom you’ll have to support us.”

The most unlikely civil liberties defender of all
What about Magna Carta? Did she die in vain?

The full lyrics lay into all the liberty stealers…

“The Most Unlikely Civil Liberties Defender Of All”
by Billy Ruffian


I think that maybe I’ve been taking pills,
‘cos David Davis is acting like John Stuart Mills,
And in taking on Brown, Dacre and Murdoch,
The establishment are in a difficult spot.

“I’m making out my political will,
By opposing the anti-terrorism bill,
But the government wish to rid us of Habeas Corpus,
So if you believe in freedom you’ll have to support us.”

The most unlikely civil liberties defender of all
What about Magna Carta? Did she die in vain?

“I’m standing in this by-election,
To protest against illegal detention,
Against Gordon Brown who should be sectioned,
To spend six weeks in the house of correction.”

“You should have campaigned for National Health,
Or ban stealth taxes, redistribute wealth,
Reduce the price of bread on the shelf,
Or listen to your party and abolish yourself.”

The most unlikely civil liberties
defender of all
What about Magna Carta? Did she die in vain?

“Canada can detain for just one day,
And it’s two days for Germany and the USA,
Russia has five, Italy has four,
So why do we require 38 more?”

“There’s no argument for it, mine’s the argument against,
I want the voters to come down off the fence,
I’ve gambled my job and my political future,
Mr. Brown debate with me on any day that suits you.”

The most unlikely civil liberties defender of all
What about Magna Carta? Did she die in vain?

“The government’s case won’t be put by The Cabinet,
Or the P.M. or his P.R. instead it’s a journalist
Kelvin McKenzie hated throughout the land,
He hates Labour, he hates Hull, but he’s still going to stand.”

“The most offensive man in Britain is the best they can do,
And if Labour believe in it, then they should stand too,
But if they still have a moral or an ethic between them,
Then remove Gordon Brown and indict him for treason.”

The most unlikely civil liberties defender of all
What about Magna Carta? Did she die in vain?

DD 2.0, Now With Added Diversity

The hastily cobbled together DavidDavisforFreedom site has been revamped over the weekend. Guido is told that Basher will be blogging daily his thoughts. The whole panoply of Facebook links and Twitter feeds are going into place as well.

The thing that struck Guido most though was the addition of diverse faces – the original site was hideously white – this version is multi-cultural. Election day is July 10, turnout is expected to be low. Basher needs to increase his proportion of the vote to justify his campaign – if he reduces his absolute share of the vote he will have humiliated himself.

On the ground the campaign seems a little chaotic, word is that he wants to emphasise advancing a national debate. The trouble is finding someone willing to debate with him…

Despair Force One Lands in Jeddah – "Pump It Up"

Gordon’s grandstanding yesterday, derided even by the usually pliant Lobby as such, was a waste of airline fuel. He told the representatives of the world’s leading oil exporting countries to act against their own interests and invest in competitors. Whereas Cameron flies to the arctic to be pointlessly pictured with a husky, Gordon flies to Arabia to be pointlessly pictured meeting oil sheiks, to be seen to be “doing something”. The head of Opec, Chakib Khelil, dismissed as “irrational and illogical” the call by Gordon for the cartel to pump more oil. They are already pumping at full pelt and the price is rising because of emerging demand from India and China as well as geo-political tensions.

Brown pre-released his speech on Friday, which gave the game away that the target of the speech was the weekend papers rather than the petroleum potentates. The Jonah effect was immediate, oil rose $4 on Friday and is up $1 a barrel this morning.

The only way prices for British consumers will come down is if Gordon stops pumping the car drivers for taxes – Britain’s motorists pay the highest petrol taxes in the G7 – three quarters of the final price is tax. If Gordon wants to “do something” he should stop raising taxes that pump up petrol prices…

UPDATE : Sam Coates is cheesed off at the waste of time and carbon. Even the announcement is a re-hash…

Rich & Mark’s Monday Morning View

Sunday Sleaze

Due to the quantity of political sleaze being reported, Guido has introduced a simple Pigs in Shit rating system for guidance on the misdemeanors of porcine politicians (guide here).
Winterton’s Claim for Electricity for Security Alarm
The Wintertons are a troughing disgrace.
Jacquie Lait Does Primary Residence Fiddle

Dr Fox Declared Donations in Register But Not to Electoral Commission
Technical breach – same as Osborne – forgot to declare them twice. More incompetent than crooked.

UPDATE : Almost missed the best, distracted by Baby Fawkes who is on the verge of walking and requires more chasing after than ever, her older sister and Mrs Fawkes are at baby yoga. Dad is doing lunch..
Expense Scamming Tom Wise MEP Arrested
The first of many we hope. Worth clicking the link for the video confession.

Has Guido missed any sleaze? Answers in the comments please – will update above.

Not in Front of the Voters

Peter Oborne pulled back the curtain showing us a little vignette of the political class on Marr’s show this morning. In the midst of a paper review he deliberately blurted out that Alan Duncan had just a few minutes earlier button-holed Marr in the green room, lobbying him not to ask questions about donations from a dodgy oil trader, citing legal issues. Marr look panicked and said in a revelatory moment “we don’t discuss what is said in the green room”. Actually the political class don’t like to discuss it in front of the voters at all…

Coulson Does Gordon Over Guido-Style

CCHQ have released a very entertaining annual report to coincide with Gordon’s first anniversary as PM next week. Some of it will be very familiar to fans of the “Twat Watch” and the “Jonah Brown” memes from this blog as

P.J. O’Rourke tells the Daily Politics:

“You really do love your NHS. But what I don’t understand is if it’s so good why are you always trying to fix it?”
