Back to Basics

Guido has enjoyed baiting Draper over the last few months.   However all good things must come to an end and it is time to get back to the real business of the blog.  Exposing the mis-deeds of politicians of all colours.

Normal service resumes tomorrow…

What the BBC Wouldn’t Let Guido Broadcast

Guido is on the BBC’s Daily Politics later today.  Originally the idea was that Guido would record a short video about Draper and Labour’s approach to blogging.  Guido’s view is essentially that LabourList is failing because it is just a spin and propaganda site, not a genuine independent initiative discussing openly the future direction of the Labour Party.  It is a top-down tool of Labour’s spin machine.

The second charge is that Draper is the wrong person to run a blog.  Good blogs succeed because they have good content and an authentic voice.  Draper is a shyster who is the embodiment of  New Labour’s spin and sleaze.  His supposed personal rebirth as a morally reformed psychotherapist is just spin.  He hasn’t changed one little bit.  He still spins his credentials just like he did in the past.

Guido went to California last week to get to the bottom of the story, what Guido discovered was shocking.  Guido has already revealed that Draper didn’t go to the prestigious Berkeley campus of the University of California, instead he went to a small institute, based in a house in the suburbs of Berkeley.

What Guido found out in Berkeley was even more surprising.  Guido has established as fact from reliable sources that in March 2004 Derek Draper was asked to leave the third year of a Clinical Psychology (PsyD) programme normally lasting 5 years.  Further that in April 2004 it was determined that he would not receive an M.A. from the Wright Institute.  So how does Derek come to have an M.A.?  Why was he expelled? Did he win an appeal?  Is it all the same old Derek with the same old spin?

The BBC say that this is off topic and they didn’t want to run a video from Guido on this subject.  Guido thinks it gets to the core of Draper’s character.  He spins the truth and you just can’t get away with that inauthenticity online.  Draper just isn’t the real deal.

Apologies for the sound quality – this is a rough excerpt from the video that Guido wanted to show on the Daily Politics:

Rushies, Co-Conspirators : “Hannan is Our Leader”

Rushies UKRush Limbaugh says, “Hear, hear. Hear, hear. Republicans in Washington could take a lesson from the bravery of this man.”

Guido spoke to Dan earlier today, he seemed bemused at the colossal impact of his speech. Guido tried to explain to him he was about to go inter-continental. “I have to deal with a lot of constituent’s letters today”, “Dan, Drudge has just front paged you”, “Yes, it is strange, I have said the same thing before.”

Cometh the hour, cometh the man – we are all ditto-heads now; Rushies and the Co-Conspirators.   British politicians are mesmerised by Obama, without noticing that two months into his presidency Obama’s ratings are lower than Dubya’s were at the same time.  Dan, we know you won’t back down, stick to your guns…

Fox : Danny Tells Cavuto – “I Wanted Ron Paul, But I Backed Obama”

UPDATE : Hannan’s reply to Gordon Brown is already at 1/3rd of million views on YouTube and on course to be the most viewed political speech in the fastest time in internet history. It is the speech that many Republicans wish  they had someone to deliver to Obama.

Poll : 2% Think MPs Honest About Expenses

A PoliticsHome poll finds that:

  • 2% of respondents believe “virtually all MPs are honest about claiming expenses”.
  • 86% of respondents think MP’s expense arrangements are “too generous”.

As many as 2%?  Surely that is within the margin of error?

Queen and King

Queen & King A governor of the Bank of England has never had an audience with the Queen before.  King had just told a stunned Westminster that there is no more money for another fiscal splurge.  Perhaps Her Majesty is worried that the currency adorned by her face is being recklessly devalued.  If she next calls in the generals for an audience our unelected, unmandated Prime Minister should really get worried…

Quote of the Day

Charles Clarke says Cameron is the most successful PM for over a century…

“Under Margaret Thatcher the Conservatives gained 99 seats. They lost 211 under John Major, gained one under William Hague, quickly and wisely got rid of Ian Duncan-Smith, gained 32 under Michael Howard and have so far gained 133 under David Cameron who, to the great surprise of many (including senior Conservatives), has turned out to be the most electorally successful Tory leader since 1900.”
