Caption Competition Winner

Wanking BallsAs is traditional, most of the Friday Caption Competition entries were lame.  Marginally less lame was this one

Ollie Cromwell says:

Gordon enjoyed wearing his gift fron J.K Rowling.

The spin-off on Ollie’s own Red Rag blog* deserves some reward, a copy of The Big Red Book of New Labour Sleaze will wing it’s way if Ollie emails his postal address. Don’t go to the blog without mind-bleach to hand…

*Guido is sure he has heard that name somewhere before.

Who Will Be Celebrating the Revolution?

daffyIt is the 40th Anniversary of the Libyan Revolution next week (Tuesday). This is a very big deal for the socialist dictatorship, invites have gone out from the Libyan Embassy to cabinet ministers and normally the foreign office would ensure that someone senior up to and including the Foreign Secretary was in attendance.

Tricky given current circumstances with all that untapped oil and those defence sales opportunities. Don’t forget the military training we provide to the Libyan dictatorship. A lot of money is at stake. Who from the government will risk the paparazzi?  Guido is betting on Ivan Lewis…

Congratulations to the English Cricket Team

Worth bearing in mind that Gordon Brown didn’t wish the team well for the Ashes. Do co-conpirators remember this:

It appears to have worked…

Why Sarah Brown Won’t Emulate Michelle Obama

rsz_sesame-street-oscarEven though she is being cynically used to humanise Gordon via Twitter, her blog and a raised profile, Guido thinks there is no need for Sarah Brown to go on Sesame Street.

She already lives on Downing Street with a Grouch…

Where’s Gordon?™ Summer 2009 Edition

Dave has written to Gordon asking him where he stands on the release of the Libyan Lockerbie prisoner.  Where is Gordon?  Guido wonders if he is in Punkaharju, Savonlinna, Finland

Friday Caption Competition

Wanking Balls

A copy of The Big Red Book of New Labour Sleaze is the prize for the wittiest caption entry.  Note, that is “witty”, not “obvious”…

+++ Mandy Hospitalised for Prostate Operation +++

He is in St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington.

UPDATE : This is going around:

“How typical of the NHS to identify the only non-malignant part of Mandelson and remove it.”

Tories Thrash Labour

edelman-roundersThe annual parliamentary staff rounders and picnic competition saw the Tories beat Labour 32 1/2 to 17.  Sadly, no pictures of the totty have reached Guido.  Very sad…

UPDATE : Guido pulled a few strings, and here is the victorious Tory Totty Team:

Government Overspending £258 Million Per Day

The Public Sector Borrowing Requirement for July came in at £8.016 billion.  That means the government was over-spending by more than £258 million per day last month, which is living beyond our collective means by more than  £10 million an hour, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Gordon Brown and Ed Balls reckon the government should spend even more.  John Redwood blogs “No wonder the Governor thinks we ought to print some more money – who is going to lend us all this?” The Zimbabwean dollar rose 15% against the British pound last month…

UPDATE : The FT reports that this morning “saw another lacklustre gilt sale from the UK Debt Management Office.”  Surprised?

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
