Police Keeping Close Watch on Levy

There has been some speculation that the CPS could place charges as soon as June, which will coincide nicely with the Blair-Brown handover and the publication of the follow-up Big Red Book of New Labour Sleaze. Guido is also working on another book, with the working title “The Trial of Lord Levy”, for publication, on the advice of lawyers, after the verdict.

While researching the latter book it has come to Guido’s notice that, somewhat bizarrely for a man on police bail, whenever Sleazy Levy is in public he can invariably be seen being kept under the watchful eye of the Metropolitan Police. Guido understands that they are for his personal protection, not surveillance.

Guido never knew it could be so dangerous in leafy Mill Hill…

Don’t Go Blair!

The nose picking, nail chewing, always mincing, hair greasing, cluster-headache suffering, pension grabbing stealth-taxer also tucks his trousers into his socks? Inevitably Labour reaches a poll low not seen since Michael Foot in 1983 and the bookies shorten the odds on the Tory favourites to win the general election.

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

For England and St George…

Where’s Gordon?™ 2

Gordon was campaigning at another child-focused photo-op again yesterday.

Where’s Gordon? tracks Gordon’s campaign trail as he tries to shore up the Labour vote in Scotland.

UPDATE : Notice something weird about this picture? Look at Gordon’s feet. He has tucked his trouser leg into his sock. The man Polly Toynbee calls an “intellectual giant” has trouble dressing himself.

Well at least he isn’t picking his nose in front of the kids…

The Race for Number Two

Guido was perusing the Betfair political markets and suddenly lost his enthusiasm for gambling. It seems all so boringly predictable. Sarko will be Presidente, Blair will go in the summer, Brown will be PM. Only the deputy leadership looks a bit less predictable.

It also has some characters, Hain and Blears provide a lot of comedic potential. Guido feels we should know more about these people and their campaigns – well not the campaign issues so much as the campaigners themselves – we’re not interested in policy. So co-conspirators, email Guido with titbits and gossip.

Happy St George’s Day

As my own country makes steps towards unity and complete self-determination, Guido will say a prayer to St George that one day England too can achieve sovereignty and freedom from rule by foreigners.

Even your patron saint is actually a Turk and sadly you don’t get a national holiday today. With both a German-descended head-of-state and a Scots dominated government, it must all be a little demoralising. Without even your own sporting English national anthem, the Irish Rugby team easily kicked English ass, and even the English cricket team looks susceptible to the rise of the Irish cricket team.* Things could, with the prospect of Prime Minister Brown, be depressing for the English.

Nevertheless, this Irishman would like to wish all his English readers a happy St George’s day.

*We beat Pakistan.

Where’s Gordon?™

Guido is saddened to learn that Friday’s untreated massive sewage discharge by Scottish Water into the Firth of the Forth, flowed past Gordon’s North Queensferry/Fife home this warm weekend.
Don’t forget the updated interactive Where’s Gordon? keeps track Gordon’s campaign moves.

Hilary Benn is a "Limey SheMale"

In New York Hilary’s “we-don’t-call-it-the- war-on-terror” speech got noticed.

See it on Guynews.

Odds Harden

Mike Smithson points out this morning that as political punters increasingly see Gordon as nigh-on a certainty, the odds on the Tories winning the general election become even firmer.

The correlation is striking.

Blairite Takes Flight

Julia Simpson, one of Tony’s strategic communications spin mistresses is going to spin for British Airways from August. She certainly has the right qualifications for handling troubled brand images.

Guido thinks we’ll be seeing a rush for the exit from

Hain SpAd’s Unpaid Leave Becomes Unemployment

Peter Hain’s former Special Adviser, Phil Taylor, who resigned or took unpaid leave from Hain’s office (the story changes) to ‘run’ the perma-tanned boy-racer’s deputy leadership campaign has quit the campaign.

Taylor and Hain parted company last week due

Quote of the Day

Paul Waugh asks Chuka Umunna if he wants children:

“It’s always something that my father taught me, which is really the bedrock of everything is your family and that’s true. My family and the people close to me keep me sane. Sometimes, things get blown up out of all proportion in this place and that’s always the reaction of my family, my girlfriend and my friends. I can use that to judge whether it really is that important.”
