How Not to Prepare For the Reshuffle

One Tory who will be nervously awaiting news of the junior ministerial reshuffle is Stephen Hammond. The Transport under-secretary received both barrels from his boss Patrick McLoughlin after telling a fringe event the government is still considering 80mph speed limits. Despite McLoughlin having ruled it out. The Secretary of State wasn’t the only one to vent his anger, Guido is told the PM got involved in the slap down. Going to be an awkward few days…

Cameron Caught on Camera in Sister-in-Law’s Bed

SamCam’s sister Alice has now deleted the offending photo of Dave, barefoot, asleep next to his red box. Presumably the PM won’t be rushing to open an Instagram account…

Dave All Ears For Bunny Funny Apology

Dave PMQs Jibe Helped By Former Tennis Partner Andrew Castle

The PM returned Labour MP Gloria De Piero’s attempt to crowd-source her PMQ on Twitter by referencing the awkward first reply to her tweet. It turns out that reply was from Andrew Castle, her GMTV colleague who used to be Dave’s tennis partner:

Dave’s Vision for the Future

Downing Street tells the Sun Dave has needed glasses since the summer. Today is the first time he has worn them out. One way of distracting everyone from his answers to the Liaison Committee…

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.
