Resigning on a point of principle and in the interests of his constitutents’ children? Halting his front-bench career? Guido wonders if Graham Brady is really cut out for modern politics…
He not only has the wrong view on schools, he went to the wrong school..
Benn is now favourite, followed by Johnson. Punters make the rest also rans. Guido has a little money on Harman with an outside chance…
“You Decide” what his website will discuss. New politics! Open! Listening! Interactivity! Digital not Analogue! Yeah Groovy! This week thousands voted to discuss “The NHS”. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and finally today Friday – Guido checked for the discussion.
Nothing but tumbleweed blew across the site.
Even checked out Oona’s blog on the site “following Gordon around the country listening to the people”. Nothing there either, she last mentioned the NHS on May 12.
Guido called up the campaign press office:
Guido Fawkes “Where is the discussion this week about the NHS?”
Press Officer “Errr, errm, I only deal with the website”
GF “Yes, this is a question about the website”
PO “Can I get Tony McElroy to call you back”
If they start a “You Decide” discussion this weekend it would still be this week, technically…
Gordon Brown and his plans for tax credits? Cameron’s carbon capping agenda? Not a chance. They really want to know about what Guido gives ’em. What people are searching to find out about Gordon is particularly interesting. “The Legend” is now a mainstream subject of discourse down the pub. Not just down the Red Lion on Whitehall, but in Glasgow boozers, City bars, Home Counties village pubs as well, they speculate and they wonder. Then they go home and Google…
“Before he steps down, Tony Blair should consider removing this institutional discrimination. After all, if reports are to believed, he may have a rather more personal interest in Catholic affairs when he leaves No. 10; he should act whilst he still has the chance.” Hmm.
Des Browne gets Guido’s vote, his incompetence is the most serious. It is wasting the lives of British soldiers…
