+++ PMQs : Gordon Wishes Rangers Luck – They Lose 2-0 +++

During the PMQs live chat the co-conspirators immediately predicted Glasgow Rangers would lose to St. Petersburg as soon as Gordon wished them well. They lost the UEFA cup final 2-0 tonight. John Reid will be laughing

Multi-Millionaire Clegg Claims Tax Free Allowance99% of the Maximum Legally Allowed

So we wait 48 days for something that Nick Clegg said should be published immediately* and it breaks down as follows:

Additional Costs Allowance he claimed £23,083.00

100% of the maximum £23,083 legally allowed.

Incidental Expenses Provision claim £20,926.63

98% of the maximum £21,339 legally allowed.

Guido wonders why it took so long to add up. Does this restore your trust in politicans?

UPDATE : Checking the back of an envelope, at the 40% rate that is equivalent to gross pay of £74,036 on top of his salary – effectively doubling his salary for home improvements.

*”His “publish immediately” demand here. Detailed breakdown here.

Labour Activists : "We Want Miliband"

LabourHome has started doing a tracker poll, if it is good enough for ConservativeHome and PoliticsHome it is good enough for them.

Good news and bad news for Gordon, the good news is he is rated higher than his Chancellor. The bad news is he scored the second lowest out of the cabinet…

Most Labour activists rate Miliband highest, followed by Alan Johnson. Would Guido be completely crazy to suspect that this isn’t really a 1 to 10 performance rating, but a proxy for “Who would you rather lead the Labour Party?” Of course it is…

Tamsin Thrice Denies Gordon is an Asset

Via the Crown Blog the cringe making More4 News interview where Tamsin is asked three times if Gordon is “an asset or a liability?”:


We already know the answer Tamsin, we just wanted to hear you say it…

You’ll Be Fired Gordon

Unbelievably Hazel Blears also flashed her Cabinet notes a la Ms Flint, so now we know that she intended to raise the possibility of Gordon starring in an Alan Sugar style TV show.

Please do it Gordon, with your charisma and natural ability as a performer it will be worth hundreds of thousands of votes for the opposition.

Guido thought the Brown era signalled the end of the celebrity culture? ‘I’ll have nothing to do with celebrity culture,’ he told the Indy. That was of course before Carter used Shakira, Beckham, Clooney and Kylie to sprinkle some stardust on the dour PM.

Talking of Carter, Guido is eagerly awaiting the latest edition of PR Week, which is rumoured to be working on a story that one of the new PR hires wants out already. Another David Pitt-Watson debacle in the making. Perhaps they realise that putting “PR for Gordon” may not look too good on their CV after all…

Unfunded Tax Cuts – Hooray!

At last a policy from the government that Guido can support. Let us hear no more from Labour politicians about Tory “unfunded tax cuts”. The government is going to have to go to the City to borrow the extra

Mary Creagh’s coded attack on Ed Miliband…

‘I want the country to be united behind a single vision, we aren’t going to do it by sort of having a Rubik’s Cube approach to politics’.
