GuyNews TV : Bogeyman Re-Mix

Now Gordon’s honeymoon is over it seemed like a good time to re-release the re-mixed version of Gordon the Bogeyman. It has been reconfigured for mobile phones and is being released as a text-messaged viral to download soon. The idea is that people will show it on their phones to their mates down the pub.

Once you watch it, you won’t be able to get it outta your head, unlike Gordon. See the close-up Bogeytastic re-mix now on GuyNews.TV.

The Case for Boris

Guido has learned that Boris has been discussing the possibility of running for Mayor since at least January. Boris is concerned that he first has to have the support of his constituency if he is to devote six months to campaigning for the job.

Surely Henley can spare him in the noble quest to finally rid Lo
ndon of Ken?


The Succinct Case for Boris:

  • He is high profile and likeable. He has name and face recognition that matches Ken Livingstone. Very few people outside the Conservative activist base know any of the other candidates.
  • He would be the popular grassroots choice with his own party activists.
  • He reaches out to those not usually interested in politics.
  • He is a talented media performer and campaigner.
  • He can win.
There are only ten days left to draft him, nominations close Monday July 16th. Currently over 80% of those polled by Guido want Boris to run…
UPDATE : Hammersmith Tory councillor Harry Phibbs, writing for the Conservative leaning think-tank the Social Affairs Unit, backed Boris for Mayor in January.

Gordon @ PMQs

Mrs Fawkes prevented Guido from seeing the first PMQs clash live (the picture on the right is from a previous PMQs session) but reports reach Guido that in the Public Gallery were Gordon’s brother and Wilf Stevenson. They will have been disappointed.

Watching the recording, Brown got off to a surprisingly shaky and stammering start. The act he is putting on will be difficult to maintain, trying to sound unnaturally consensua, as fake as his new smile. Give it a few months and the inner Gordon will come through. His perfomance was such that he was slapped down by Ming. That was a change…

Speccie Endorses Boris for Mayor

Matthew d’Ancona has declared Boris to be the official candidate of The Spectator for the position of London Mayor.
The I’m Backing Boris Facebook group is now open for business…

UPDATE : Tory Radio is backing Boris.

Brown to Protect the Sith

In the small print of Brown’s Commons Statement yesterday:

Right of charities to campaign
168. …it is important to ensure that the regulatory framework for the third sector, together with the Government’s consultation mechanisms and investments in strengthening the organisational capacity of the sector, help it to foster and harness community voices on important issues of public policy. The Government will therefore work with the Charity Commission, Capacitybuilders and sector leaders to explore the options for enabling charities and other sector organisations to better campaign on issues that are likely to advance the cause of the purposes for which they have been established. As part of this process, the Government will consider the recommendations of the recent report of the independent Advisory Group on Campaigning and the Voluntary Sector, chaired by Baroness Helena Kennedy QC (23 May 2007).

The review was far from independent and was cobbled together by the Treasury last February to report in April – unusually timely and speedily. (Wonder why?) The great and the good on the committee chaired by Helena Kennedy recommended that “Charities should be able to engage in political campaigning in furtherance of their charitable purposes as long as they do not support political parties.”

It might surprise you to learn that Guido supports this move, then again Guido has never seen a tax cut he hasn’t liked. This move might save the Smith Institute’s charitable status, but if campaigning becomes tax-deductible Brown is going to get an awful shock. Right-of-centre pressure groups and campaigns will raise and spend more money than his supporters ever will. It will give political organisations outside the party structures a huge warchest. A lot of people will be far more inclined to give to their causes if it comes off their tax bill…

Blair Trousers First £100,000

Guido hears that Blair’s package for his UN-sponsored Middle East Peace Mission is £100,000-a-year, plus office and travel expenses.

Didn’t Jimmy Carter have this exact same job a decade or two ago?

Labour’s Anti-Heir-to-Blair Campaign Poster

If Cameron is the Heir-to-Blair, and the Brownites have been fighting Blair for so long, is this any surprise? They have recycled an anti-Blair poster from the 2005 general election. Michael Howard’s Tories had a poster of a grinning

Miliblogger to Persevere

Quote of the Day

Labour candidate Clive Lewis tells the Staggers:

“I mean, in the multiverse there’s still three universes in a hundred where there’s a Green MP in Norwich, so anything could happen. I could be caught with my pants down behind a goat with Ed Miliband at the other end – well, hopefully that won’t happen.”
