*Iain Dale owes Guido 10 pints for the picture on the left.
Guido is also told that all ex-MPs have been kicked off the candidates list. All of them.
UPDATE : By “all of them” apparently the source meant all of them, apart from the 2005 losers.
Liberal Democrat leadership candidate Simon Hughes MP told GMTV’s Sunday programme this morning that he was “increasingly confident of victory.”
Best he re-mortgages and backs himself down the bookies at 30/1 if he is so confident.
Q. What’s the connection between Simon Hughes and his Nokia phone?
A. Dem iz both Finnish, innit.
Hughes is being offered at 30/1 for those who like outside bets. Ming has tumbled to 2/1. Guido understands that Ming almost literally tumbled over at the Midlands hustings. He lost his footing on stage and very narrowly avoided going arse over tit. It would have been a defining “Kinnock moment”.
The top three MPs were all Tories; Paul Goodman, George Young and Robert Key take a bow (or more likely your efficient research assistants should give themselves a pat on the back). The bottom three MPs were all Labour, P45s should be on their way to the lazy or incompetent assistants to Jane Kennedy, John Heppell and Graham Stringer.
The people’s tribune George Galloway is obviously too busy being a celebrity to actually help people. Only 7% of his correspondents got a reply within 3 weeks.
Am luvvin’ league tables for Labour MPs, if it’s good enough for headmasters and hospitals, it’s good enough for them!
