REVEALED: Tape of What Boris Actually Said at Gay Pride Event

On LBC this morning Boris denied the charge that he joked “you can take your partner up the Arcelor” at a speech about gay pride last week.

“I did not say those words and I think any tape would readily confirm that.”

So what did he actually say? Guido has uncovered footage of the speech in question to clear up the mystery once and for all:

“…up the orbit”. All taken in jest by the audience…

UKIP Voters Back Boris

The public don’t yet trust Boris to be PM, so says some pretty comprehensive polling released by Lord Ashcroft this morning. Only just over a third said he was capable of the running the country, while Tory voters overwhelmingly backed Dave. The UKIP results are arguably the most interesting. 35% of UKIP voters saying they would consider voting Tory if Boris were leader. Tory backbenchers must be wondering just how many would come home…

Boris Loses Lovechild Legal Row With Mail

Readers will remember that last summer Guido reported the High Court had banned the press from revealing the identity of a “philandering” politician and his lovechild. Associated Newspapers had to pay £15,000 after publishing photos of the baby, known only as AAA, who has distinguishable blonde hair and obviously recognisable features. It can now be legally revealed that the father of three-year-old Stephanie Macintyre is Boris Johnson.

Dave Major vs the World

Well it could be 1992 all over again. Dave’s attack on Tory “pessimists” this morning is worth nothing, given what has happened since. On Lawson and Portillo’s Brexit conversions, he insisted earlier:

“I think they’re wrong. There are some pro-European pessimists who say, you have to, in Europe, simply sign up to every single thing that anyone in the EU suggests. You sign every treaty, you sign everything – there is no alternative. I think they are completely wrong. The second group of pessimists say there is no prospect of reforming the EU, you simply have to leave. I think they are wrong too.”

Since then another former Chancellor, Norman Lamont, has joined in the fight and a Queen’s Speech pro-referendum amendment has emerged. No surprises to see Boris pop up either. Surely just coincidence that the Mayor of London, speaking at the very same global investment summit as the PM, offers some ankle to the Tory Eurosceptics.

Helpful timing, as ever.

Chris Bryant talks to the Times Diary about a famous gay actor:

“I don’t think I’ve had sex with him. He says we had sex in Clapham. I’m fairly certain I’ve never had sex south of the river”



Progressive Inclusion Champion says:

Great to hear Carswell call for inclusive policies and that UKIP must stand for first and second generation immigrants as much as the English.
