We Told You So…

John Hutton didn’t mince his words when he gave Nick Robinson his prediction. He was right.

He made this forecast (video here) to a Question Time audience. He got it wrong, it took five months.

They are going to miss three times election winning Blair when he is gone. Wait and see…

Labour have acted like lemmings, dispensing with their most successful leader of all time for a less popular, less likeable replacement. The more the voters see of Gordon, the worse it will get.
May 13, 2007

You have to wonder if the Labour party is having a collective moment of Lemming-like lunacy... The Brown bounce will be a dead-Lemming bounce.

Remind Guido why they are getting rid of three-times-winner Blair early?

The Tories are on polling levels last seen at the height of Thatcher’s popularity during the national euphoria following the Falklands victory. Gordon Brown has been a f***ing disaster for the Labour party…

The Fat Lady is About to Sing

All those who pledged to support a private prosecuton of Lord Levy should now have received an update by email and text message.

As was always intended, we will make a final decision as to whether to seek a prosecution following the conclusion of the all-party Public Administration Select Committee’s deliberations. They will be publishing their report into “Honours and Propriety” on Wednesday.

Well over two hundred people have pledged financial support for a prosecution. As we have seen with this second Donorgate wave of Labour fundraising sleaze, there will be no end to corrupt political fundraising until those concerned realise that they risk jail. This can’t be allowed to go on unpunished. Harman, Hain and others claim ignorance of the law and forgetful mistakes. The opportunity to unforgettably impress on politicians the disgust of voters with the system is approaching…

Guido Fawkes Hello
Oxford Uni Errm, would you, err, be interested in speaking in an Oxford Union debate?

Guido turned them down. He is just not that right-wing.

Gordon’s Black Wednesday£11,169,591,442 on September 19, 2007

As these official Bank of England statements reveal, the bank’s liabilities went up £11,169,591,442 on Wednesday September 19, 2007. This was Gordon’s Black Wednesday.

How much will the taxpayer lose in Northern Rock? With recession coming and for the first time since the 1991 negative-equity disaster, three consecutive months of recorded falls in property prices, it is not looking good. The total level of public support is “confidential”, but we can assume it is now £30 billion.

Northern rock has de facto already been nationalised, it now looks increasingly like that this will soon be formalised. Is it any wonder why the “economic competence” poll ratings for the Labour party have collapsed to levels not seen since before the 1992 ERM debacle. The nationalisation of Northern Rock was not in the national interest, it was in the narrow interest of Labour to protect their North East heartland votes. It is not a great bargain…

Vince Twinkle Toes

Vince Cable really has had the time of his life for the last few months. He looked very happy dancing with a very hot Alicia last night, well wouldn’t you be happy? See him perform on GuyNews.TV.

Bye Bye Westmonster, Hello Whirlwind

We say farewell to Sadie at Westmonster. Her star shone bright briefly before Guido saw her off. Whatever happened to the Honourable Fiend?
We now say hello to another girly political gossip from the Westminster Whirlwind (a.k.a. Katy Taylor-Richards). Her new blog for the Express this week takes a look at some of Dessie Swayne’s moves.

They do say write about what you know…

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
