Fidel’s Final Push

As the Russian jeep carrying the ashes of the Cuban military dictator passed near Moncada Fort it broke down abd had to be pushed along by soldiers. As crowds shouted “Long live Fidel” his ashes ground to a halt. Socialism sputtering till the end….

Brooks Newmark Back Helping Women2Win

women

One of the main reasons Brooks Newmark’s sexting was so inappropriate is that he co-founded the Women2Win group helping young women get involved in politics. Newmark invited our Sophie to a Women2Win event – he was abusing his position in the group to meet young Tory women. Well, Women2Win have welcomed Brooks back into the fold, there he is in the photo above holding a Women2Win placard while campaigning for the Tory candidate in the Sleaford by-election. Alongside a bevy of young Tory women. Have to wonder if this is responsible from those now running Women2Win…

Boris Brings Christmas Back to FCO

bo-jo-ho-ho

When Phil Hammond was Foreign Secretary, the Foreign Office did not exactly embrace the festive spirit. Indeed, a Christmas tree historically erected in the quad outside the FCO was canned by the scrooges in the last Labour government. Under Boris, Guido is happy to report that the Yuletide festivities have returned. This morning a Christmas tree was unveiled to the delight of merry mandarins, a gift from the Norwegian foreign minister Borge Brende, as children from the Norwegian school in London sang carols. BoJo ho ho!

Record Car Sales This Year

cars

More good news: new car sales are set to reach a record high this year according to figures released by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders. Registrations rose by 2.9 percent to 184,101 vehicles last month. Reuters reports:

“It is the first time the industry has sold more than 2.5 million vehicles in the first eleven months of the year, putting it on track to beat the 2.63 million sold last year, despite uncertainty created by Britain’s vote to leave the European Union.”

Naz Shah Attends Event With Extremist-Linked Zionist-Haters

naz

Naz Shah’s rehabilitation following her anti-Semitism scandal had been going well. Her mea culpa seemed genuine, she won the support of the Jewish community and came across well on a Channel 5 documentary last week. So it’s a shame she decided to attend an event in parliament with Mend, as the Sun on Sunday reports. Mend is a very unsavoury group. They employ Azad Ali, a man who has written of his “love” for an al-Qaeda terrorist. They have defended Cage, the extremist group linked to Jihadi John. Their Twitter feed is awash with rants about the “Zionist Lobby”. Their ex-chief Sufyan Ismail – who sat next to Shah at the event – has tweeted about “Zionist funders” of MPs. Mend also promoted a ‘Fake News’ conspiracy theory article claiming the “Israel Lobby manufactured” Shah’s anti-Semitism scandal. Regrettable that Naz is once again legitimising such behaviour… 

Local Tory Row Over Heidi Allen Mayoral Bid

bunfight

Tory MP Heidi Allen is involved in a local bunfight after deciding to run for Cambridgeshire mayor, proposing to double-job alongside her work in parliament. Allen says she can do both jobs at the same time and give “the majority” of her mayoral salary to charity. Her announcement has however gone down like a cup of cold sick with local Tory figures. Cambridgeshire councillor Tom Hunt warns: “Can’t say I’m thrilled about the idea… Talk about having your cake and eating it”. Huntingdonshire councillor Jonathan Gray says: “Both are full time, different, roles. Can’t be done properly by one person”. Fenland councillor Michelle Tanfield adds: “Can’t see how she could do both well. We need a full time mayor”. And Sawtry councillor Darren Tysoe says he is “not sure how a sitting MP” can be mayor as well. Tory whips are said to be less than enthused by Allen’s decision, remember she has been a thorn in the side of the government on tax credits and more. Heidi is going to have to overcome a lot of opposition, sure she will relish the debate…

Clegg Gets Brillo’d

Nick Clegg follows in the footsteps of his old spinner James McGrory and takes a pasting from Andrew Neil on the single market. Brillo’s killer line: “Isn’t it time the LibDems had a rebrand and dropped the Democrat?” Cue Clegg silent death stare…

Boris Tells Sky: “Your Story Was a Dud”

A big barney on Sky News as Dermot Murnaghan accuses Boris of lying over his free movement comments. Boris hits back by telling Sky their story was

“cooked up… I’m not entirely convinced your reporter talked to those ambassadors… Your story was a dud, it was wrong, it was a load of old baloney… [the journalist] was offered something that was completely untrue, it was nonsense… I’m glad that it’s been corrected.”

Miaow…

Boris Opposes “Large” Post-Brexit EU Contributions

Boris made clear on Marr that he is against “large” payments to the EU in exchange for single market access, stressing the need to take back control of the money we send to Brussels. This will be framed as a split between Boris/Fox on one side and May/Hammond/Davis on the other. Brexiteers should remain calm though. It’s sensible to consider all options for free trade with the EU – Brexit always likely meant we could still pay in on some aspects – just as it’s sensible to oppose sending Brussels exorbitant sums…

Ambassadors Say Sky News Boris Story Untrue

boris

Italy’s ambassador to London Pasquale Terracciano has gone on the record to the Sunday Telegraph to confirm Boris did not back freedom of movement, contrary to the Sky News report that caused such a stir this week. Terracciano reveals:

“We do not normally comment on discussion we have at EU Ambassadors’ level with members of Government. But since this particular issue has become focus of press speculations, I will tell you that Boris Johnson chose not to speak about the principle of freedom of movement within the EU. He said instead that he had always been favourable in principle to immigration but also added that immigration needed to be controlled.”

So what Boris said was completely consistent with the 10 times he opposed freedom of movement posted by Guido on Thursday. A second ambassador confirms to the Sunday Telegraph:

“My recollection was that he didn’t say anything that was different [from his public stance]. I don’t think I even made any particular note of what he said on that issue because it was simply in line with what I already knew to be Government policy.”

Who’d have thought those four anonymous ambassadors briefing against Boris to friendly Sky News were up to no good? And surely the BBC will give this new development equal prominence too. Awkward one for tonight’s Sky paper review…
