Sian : Fetish Dresser?

Lembit Opik’s secret intrigued co-conspirators yesterday (it also excited the Popbitchers). Now without over-exciting m’learned friends too much, Guido thinks it is safe to say that Lembit is a bit of a boy. Inquiring minds want to know:
  • Does he have a tattoo somewhere special?
  • When is the wedding?
  • How Social, Welsh and Sexy is she?
  • Does she wear the cat-suit at home?

Outrage at Lying PM Brings Riots to State Broadcaster

This was in Budapest, Hungary not White City in London. But the wing-nuts over at Biased BBC might want to take inspiration. C’mon you know you want to…

Every Day is "Talk Look Like A Pirate Day" Here

Battersea Election News

Martin Linton is managing Peter Hain’s campaign for the deputy-leadership. Linton is the author of “The Swedish Road to Socialism” which the Swedes have just turned off. Could the reason the half-Swedish visionary is running the perma-tanned boy-racer’s campaign be something to do with the promise of a chicken run to a safe-seat if Hain wins? Last election his majority over the Tory was reduced to 163 votes.

Guido hears that the Tory short-list for the Battersea seat comprises 4 women and 2 non-white-males. Maude will be pleased…

Tory Website Gets Green Make-over

Functionally appears to be the same, just looks more like the Green party. Which is true on more than one level…

Lembit Opik Has a Secret

This just in from a co-conspirator:

Lembit Opik has just told Victoria Derbyshire on Five Live that he has a big secret that some people would consider to be in the same league as Charles Kennedy and Mark Oaten but he believes that the public should not confuse politicians’ private lives with their public lives. Well what is this secret? Let the public decide.

Hmmm, whatever could it be?

Bedford Health Hotspot for Hewitt

We learnt last week that Ms Hewitt asked clinical experts like Hazel Blears and Downing Street’s John McTernan and Paul Corrigan to draw up “heat maps” indicating marginal Labour seats where closures or changes to healthcare could deter voters.

Guido has drawn up a map for her to save McTernan the trouble allowing him more time to help others with their inquiries. Bedford was a Labour marginal where Patrick Hall had a 3,383 majority. A group of consultants at Bedford Hospital have decided that enough is enough.

They have formed a political party, Save Bedford Hospital, which they are in the process of registering with the Electoral Commission, and plan to fight the re-drawn Bedford and Kempston parliamentary seat. The group have universal support from hospital staff, patients and the local press. According to Dr Barry Monk, a consultant at the hospital for the past nineteen years, and chairman of the hospital consultants’ committee, who is now the party’s prospective parliamentary candidate, they are determined to win. “The time has come to explain to people how badly things have gone wrong in the NHS; the public deserve better.”

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
