A questions backlog is building up. Its not as if Dave has to run the country or implement policies is it? I mean five questions a week. Can’t be too hard can it?
Nick Robinson, Paxman or Andrew Neil could have crucified Brown, Frost would have ambushed him silkily. Even Ant and Dec would probably have scored a goal. What did Marr do? This pathetic interview was the political equivalent of fellatio. Gordon left smiling and relieved.
Will Marr ask Gordon any questions beyond “How brilliant will it be when you take over?” What about Gordon pushing for gongs for the Sith’s Wilf Stevenson and Ronnie Cohen, PFI profiteer and backer of Gordon? What is Gordon’s plan for Iraq beyond platitudes and educating every Iraqi kid? Don’t be a patsy this time.
Do you have any suitable pictures for her calendar?
Despite being Old Labour he still hasn’t quite got the knack of this political correctness lark – referring to “anonymongs”* in his inaugrual return post. Now that is a politically incorrect term offensive to educationally sub-normal types, Guardian readers and especially to educationally sub-normal Guardian readers. “Mong” being a perjorative abbreviation of “mongoloid”. Over to you PragueTory…

Rob Fenwick, the former LibDem e-campaigner during the 2005 General Election, is very sniffy, telling Stephen Tall that “the power of ‘celebrity’ bloggers is massively over-hyped. Guido Fawkes is a Westminster Village distraction, the love of politicians and journalists.” Terrible, ain’t it?
Guido has in the past suggested that the Sith is basically a platform for the greater glorification of Gordon, which allows him to rub shoulders with plutocrats and corporate CEO titans whilst simultaneously providing photo opportunities leading to donations.
True to form, the keynote speaker will be a CEO of a U.S. multi-national, Lewis Booth, the Chairman of Ford Europe. He will tell the iron chancellor how to “shape global policy for economic opportunity”.
Globally Ford lost $8.5 billion last year and has announced that it aims to close 12 plants and cut 40,000 jobs. Like the UK public sector it has massive “legacy costs” of pensions and lifetime healthcare, expensive deals with unions and ever-increasing debts.
Its share price has dived from $18 to a low of $6 just as Labour has recently polled the lowest since 1992. So he is obviously the best person to guide Gordon, they have so much in common…

Earlsfield resident Olivia Seccombe writing to the Wandsworth Guardian:
“I would like to question the judgement of Tooting’s Member of Parliament, Sadiq Khan, now Babar Ahmad has been found guilty of running websites that allegedly sought to raise money, recruit fighters and seek equipment for terrorists in Afghanistan and Chechnya… Now this man has been found guilty – after a full and fair trial in the States – I would like Mr Khan to answer firstly, what his concerns with the legal process were and secondly, why he spent so much time campaigning for this man when he should have been representing Tooting in Parliament?”
