Llewellyn Tells PM He Wants Out of No.10

David Cameron’s Chief of Staff Ed Llewellyn has signalled that he wants out. As Guido revealed in yesterday’s Sun on Sunday the exact timings are yet to be decided, though Llewellyn is holding out for a top ambassadorship with Dave reportedly promising his Old Etonian chum the plum job in Rome or Washington. A Downing Street source claims the PM is “indifferent” about Llewellyn going, telling Guido: “Like everyone, he hears the whispers about Evil Eddie.”

Meanwhile, Guido is told Dave’s hopes of poaching Osborne’s Chief of Staff Rupert Harrison to replace Llewellyn were short-lived. So far it appears Osborne’s “brain” is not keen on sticking around either and is also hoping to leave before the next election.

Will the last Chief of Staff to leave Downing Street please turn off the lights…

‘Tis the Eve of St Crispin’s Day, Dave…

On which day, according to Shakespeare, the leader of the English told the herald of the Constable of France:

Come thou no more for ransom, gentle herald:
They shall have none, I swear, but these my joints;
Which if they have as I will leave ’em them,
Shall yield them little, tell the constable.

“…he which hath no stomach to this fight, let him depart…”

Is Dave an EU Appeaser or Will He Fight for Britain?

The EU this morning orders Britain to pay a £1.7 billion “prosperity tax” within weeks, while France and Germany receive massive rebates. A continental source gloats to the Telegraph: “there is nothing Britain can do about it”. That isn’t true: Dave can refuse to pay, tell Brussels to deal with it and then see what they do. It’s our money, the PM has to say “no, no, no”.

Nigel Farage is already on the case: “The EU is like a thirsty vampire feasting on UK taxpayers’ blood. We need to protect the innocent victims, who are us”. If the PM fails to make a stand immediately he can kiss goodbye to Rochester. Judging by the mood among Eurosceptic Tory MPs this morning that could be the least of his problems if Downing Street gives in and pays up…

We Had a Party, Almost Everyone Came…

Scrapbook Losing Friends Fast Over Cam Kid Hate

Britain’s leading left-wing blog has come under fire for the second time in two weeks for attacking David Cameron over his disabled son Ivan, who passed away in 2009. Earlier this month union-funded Political Scrapbook was universally panned for this story criticising the PM for an emotional section of his conference speech. The response was unanimous:

Today they’re at it again, claiming: “In a corner, Cameron can’t help invoking the memory of his disabled son”. The less than tasteful line of attack is seeing Scrapbook lose friends on the liberal left fast:

You stay classy…

Tories Love Bomb Irish Northern Ireland Corporation Tax Cut a ‘Done Deal’

Quietly and with a sense of purpose the Tories are making plans for a hung parliament.

A key part of the contingency plans include an increased effort to woo the Unionists. As Guido revealed in yesterday’s Sun column, promises are being made and the outlines are being drawn of a deal to be struck should the eight MPs of the Democratic Unionist Party hold the balance of power next May.[…] Read the rest

If the Tories Lose in 2015, Blame Cooper Not Farage

andrew-cooper

Matthew D’Ancona once quoted a “Cameron ally” dismissing the long-term threat posed by UKIP. D’Ancona’s soothsaying source predicted Farage’s party “should reach its peak in the European elections on May 22”, leading the Telegraph columnist to urge Dave to “forget UKIP”, warn “too much time is still devoted to soothing those who might jump ship” and profess “UKIP will not be Cameron’s biggest problem”. […] Read the rest

Tax Rabbit Saves Dave's Conference

Guido has never seen a tax cut that he does not like so Cameron’s speech today was certainly lively. The hall loved it and Dave hit their sweet spots in a way he has not since before the last election. Personal allowance up, the threshold for 40% rate up from £41,000 to £50,000.[…] Read the rest
