With Murdoch hinting that Page 3 is “so last century”, po-faced critics of boobs are campaigning with new vigour today. So much so that Guido is launching #SavePage3.

They do not speak for everyone…

Sadiq’s Dodgy Donor Kebab and the Curse Of David Morris
Guido’s Sunday Column is Now Online

Quite a mix in Guido’s column yesterday; from Stringfellow and Clegg, Balls throwing his weight around and even Bryan Ferry pops up. Guido’s favourites included the curse of David Morris and Sadiq dodgy donor kebab:

TALKING of 80s chart-toppers, if you see Rick Astley’s former keyboardist-turned-Tory MP David Morris travelling anywhere, run away – the man seems to be cursed. Not only was the MP for Morecambe an extremely close witness to the recent London helicopter crash on the way into work, he spent Friday night building snowmen on the M6, stranded in his car by the weather. In both cases he took to Sky News to discuss his plight. It seems the profile-conscious MP is never going to give you up when it comes to free publicity.

SOME were surprised to see the over-abundant Shadow Public Health Minister Diane Abbott declare war on fried chicken shops and takeaways recently, especially in the same week that her Labour colleague the Shadow Minister for London, Sadiq Khan, promoted the Best British Kebab Awards in Parliament. Khan said: “It is important that we take the time to celebrate the fantastic establishments.” And why do you think Khan is such a fan of the industry? Nothing to do with the £5,000 donated to his 2010 re-election campaign by the Tayyab Kebab House in his constituency…

Guido’s Sunday Column Now Online

Guido’s Sunday column had more of the fallout from Dave’s speech that never was, and David Miliband’s well oiled shadow campaign team, but his favourite story had to be about Dave’s wonderful man-management skills:

“DAVE’S grip over his party’s loyalty is slipping even further and he’s becoming a figure of fun – lethal to a leader. When asking how one MP’s relationship was with the Prime Minister, Guido was told he was the wrong person to ask, as he’d only spoken to the Prime Minister once – when Dave stood on his shoe and then did not apologise. Hard to recover when you start off on the wrong foot.”

Guido is also still chuckling at this one too:

“THIRTEEN years ago, the politically influential Climatic Research Unit of the University of East Anglia – the leading scaremongers about man-made global warming – warned us that within just a few years “children just aren’t going to know what snow is” and that it will be “a very rare and exciting event”. Last week, a foot of this mythical snow stuff closed 3,000 schools, triggered power cuts, shut airports and caused chaos on the roads. As it did last year. And the year before that.”

Elsewhere delusional London mayor hopeful Sadiq Khan has hit a brick wall of derision from his rivals in the Labour Party, also north of the border the leader of Glasgow council was busted performing a gay sex act in a car. And the sad news of “Ed Balls dead at 45″. Yesterday’s column is now online here

Guido’s Column in the Daily Star Sunday

In Guido’s Daily Star Sunday column:

  • Labour’s new “Shadow Minister for London” Sadiq Khan eyes the Mayoralty. Who are the rivals who say “No You Khant?”
  • Dave’s relationship with backbenchers explained in a nutshell.
  • Another blow for the Glasgow Labour leadership: from cocaine to police caution for gay public “sex act”.
  • David Miliband trousers £1.1 million since “losing”. Blairite Lord Sainsbury funds his comeback campaign with half-a-million.
  • Green peer reviewed climate research scaremongering from yesteryear: “children just aren’t going to know what snow is”.
  • Newsroom shock at the “death” of the Shadow Chancellor.

Not the First Boobs Alex Aiken Has Handled
Guido’s Sunday Column Now Online

The Prime Minister might be cutting child benefit for hard-working families up and down the country, but that hasn’t stopped him showing off about his £3,500 for a Savile Row suit to fashionistas. However Guido’s favourite story from his Daily Star Sunday column, that involved Whitehall’s newest spinner:

star“THE Tories were against political appointments to the Civil Service until they got into government. But now Alex Aiken, the party’s former head of news under William Hague, is taking over as executive director of government communications – one of the most powerful spin jobs in Whitehall. A decade ago Aiken was a Tory HQ staffer when he was famously spotted leaving a Commons bar with topless model Jo Guest, inset, after a marathon drinking session. Downing Street will be hoping Aiken can keep abreast of the news and spin the Government out of trouble, which means it’s not the last time he will be handling big boobs.”

If you had picked up your copy yesterday you would also have the latest on legendary luncher Lord Strathclyde, how Dave “lost the room” while briefing Tory MPs on 2015 election strategy, and why James Landale caused a stir when he got the news about Andrew Marr. Guido’s column is now online here

Guido’s Column in the Daily Star Sunday

In Guido’s Daily Star Sunday column:

  • starThe night the government’s new head of spin had with topless glamour model Jo Guest.
  • We are not all-in-onesies-together. Which politician wears £3,500 suits?
  • Who was the Tory MP who lambasted Cameron over gay marriage?
  • What was the final straw for Strathclyde? How keen is his successor Lord Hill?
  • Where was James Landale when he got the news about Marr? And who was annoyed with him?

Tory Jim Boasting in the Carlton Club and Lembit’s NYE
Guido’s Sunday Column Now Online

As reported in yesterday’s Daily Star Sunday:

JIM Davidson was praised by Iain Duncan Smith as “a true Conservative supporter” back in 2001, after the comedian bankrolled his victorious Tory leadership campaign. Davidson returned the favour, calling IDS a “very, very caring man” and helped raise cash for the party. Jim is still a member of the posh Carlton Club on London’s St James’s Street that’s favoured by Tory grandees. Guido’s mole reports that recently Davidson was noisily speculating in the club bar about who might be next on the Jimmy Savile cops’ list. The funny man isn’t laughing now he has been nicked flying into Heathrow on his way to the Celebrity Big Brother house.

Guido’s other favourite story from this week had to be Lembit’s New Year’s Eve:

HAPPY New Year to Lembit Opik, who welcomed in 2013 from the cloakroom of the Driver nightclub in London’s Kings Cross. New Year’s Eve revellers were shocked to discover the former Liberal Democrat MP dressed in black tie, checking IDs, tickets and taking coats. He told one partygoer that he wasn’t promoting the “secret agent-themed” party, just helping out as he was “at a loose end”. “It was all incredibly bizarre, as were his dance moves,” one told Guido.

Half a million people read it in print yesterday, and you can now read the blog’s Sunday column online here.

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.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
