GuyNews : Coulson’s CCHQ Post-Election De-Briefing

Guido managed to get access to CCHQ and snatched this slightly triumphalist footage from Coulson’s post-election de-briefing in the Millbank war-room.

GuyNews : "Can You Hear Me Mr Hoon?"

The tragi-comedy last night was best when Geoff Hoon did his Comical Ali, “I can’t hear you” routine during a sarcastic drubbing from Dimbleby.

See the acting on GuyNews.TV.

POSITION VACANT

Our client, a large scale public sector operator, is seeking a new head of operations. Candidates must be able to deal sensitively with an under pressure CEO in a highly stressful environment and willing to be on-call 24-hours a day.

The enterprise is heavily indebted with declining revenue and critical solvency issues that make it an exciting opportunity in the growing area of sub-prime credit risk. The ideal candidate will be expected to personally underwrite any credit risk. Facing increasing competitive threats which have eroded market share from first to third place, the ideal candidate will be able to enthuse a demoralised and disappointed workforce. Job may require occasional liason with law enforcement officers.

The job is suitable for someone with experience of turning around failing organisations. Pay is limited, based in London.

Interested parties should contact Mr G. Brown, Listening Leader of the Labour Party, C/O Downing Street, London SW1.

+++ David Pitt-Watson Resigns Before He Starts +++

Gordon’s chosen Labour Party General Secretary has struck another blow – he will not be taking the helm of the Labour Party as the ship sinks. He is not completely stupid…

UPDATE : Guido’s original analysis from a month ago was proved right.

Maguire’s Tyne Turns Blue

Kevin Maguire claimed last year that “back home on Tyneside at the weekend, I found many a Labour voter eagerly awaiting the day [the] former premier is dead and buried.” Margaret Thatcher will therefore no doubt be very pleased to learn that Maguire’s hometown, where he helps the local Labour Party, is a Conservative gain.

You won’t find so many Labour voters on the Tyne today…

Sarah Vine writes of Esther McVey…

“McVey told Grazia that she hasn’t married or had children because she ‘never found anyone to wind her biological clock’ … If I remember rightly, half the current Cabinet would have cheerfully ‘wound her clock’ if she’d given them a glimmer of a chance.”



Flight Watch says:

Russia Today is a cauldron of bullsh*t. The only people that take it seriously are deluded conspiracy theorists. Other RT journos have resigned citing the same reasons.

It’s about as believable as Press TV, KCNA of North Korea or the Daily Mirror.
