Samuel Jackson makes it work…
That interview in the Spectator has caused lots of trouble for George Osborne and the Speccie is positively lapping it up. They are running cheeky advertising quoting Balls’s demand for an apology in parliament to sell subscriptions. What next? Balls endorsed lasagne sauces…
They are using a revised strapline: Impugning integrity since 1828.
The guys at Don’t Panic who put the blue plaque on Jacqui Smith’s wall have been round to Alan Duncan’s place to help out with the gardening. Hilarious, watch it until the end:
Jury Team, the new internet-based party set-up by Paul Judge to bring independent candidates with clean hands into politics, is making waves by running American-style attack ads in Jacqui Smith’s constituency – they will run online in Redditch local newspapers from tomorrow morning.
The advert is not that aggressive by American standards, by British standards it is, so much so that the newspapers in which it is running took legal advice before accepting the advert.
Iain Dale underestimates the anti-political climate that they are trying to tap into, anyone can stand in the party’s primaries. They are a small party but the internet means they can grow fast. The Italian mani pulite movement in the early 90s started small and led eventually to the demise of the corrupt First Republic and the collapse of the old party structures. When you have David Cameron proposing parliamentary reforms which will result in MPs pocketing more taxpayers cash you really wonder if these mavericks could go mainstream. It happened in Italy…

Andrew Pierce on Ed Balls…
“Porky Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls sweet-talked guests at a fund-raising dinner by saying if he wasn’t a politician, he would be a chef. That’s not surprising, since he was accused of cooking the Treasury books when he was Gordon Brown’s boot boy.”
is there anyone in the world that Tony hasnt screwed in some way?
