Guido is nursing a sore head from yesterday’s Christmas lunch, which overran somewhat.
After Martin Rowson shamelessly cancelled on his promise to sketch the team due to corporate influence, eminent artist Iain Martin graciously stepped in:

We’ll be back shortly…
Ed Miliband’s 7-minute immigration speech reminded Guido of something…
So here goes…

We will try sort out a goodie bag for the best entry.
We’re off to our Christmas lunch, blogging may be sporadic… see you in 2015.
Guido presents a special readers’ screening of CITIZENFOUR, the new film starring Edward Snowden from Academy Award nominee Laura Poitras, next Wednesday, 6.30pm, December 17 at the crumbling old Guardian HQ on 119 Farringdon Road, London, EC1R 3ER. Come and see inside the Lubyanka-like former headquarters of the Guardian, watch the movie and enjoy a drink before Christmas.
This is a free screening for Guido’s readers and Techno-Guido will be supplying the drinks!
In January 2013, Laura Poitras several years into the making of a film about abuses of national security in post-9/11 America when she started receiving encrypted emails from someone identifying himself as “citizen four”, who was ready to blow the whistle on the massive covert surveillance programs run by the NSA and other intelligence agencies.
In June 2013, she and reporter Glenn Greenwald flew to Hong Kong for the first of many meetings with the man who turned out to be Edward Snowden. She brought her camera with her. The film that resulted from this series of tense encounters is absolutely unique in the history of cinema: a 100% real-life thriller unfolding minute by minute before our eyes.
Warning: this movie has strong libertarian undertones…

Watch Guido’s entire NSFW coverage here.
Troubled times for the children of Blair. Ben Bradshaw is wandering around in a hole-ridden suit. Admittedly Guido doesn’t like it when he has to dispose of a Savile Row number either, but it’s hardly a good look. Bradshaw is blaming Parliament’s infestation of moths – and the authorities have confirmed there is a problem. Though it looks a suspiciously like hot rock damage to Guido. Has Ben been “sharing his sister’s rollie” again?
Guido did not receive a response when he asked a Treasury spokesman if the Chancellor had eaten disco biscuits on Tuesday night…
Not content with nannying people about booze and fags, the state is now trying to stop us from eating burgers. Birmingham Public Health childhood obesity co-ordinator Charlene Mulhern, whose job has so far evaded the clutches of ‘austerity’, has called for Hungry House’s double-donut, double-beefburger with melted cheese and smoked streaky bacon to be withdrawn from sale. “We all make mistakes and I would suggest that the Hungry Horse chain has made a mistake here,” moans Matron Mulhern. “It would be refreshing if they had a rethink and decided to withdraw this 2,000-calorie burger from the menu”.
Always an advocate of healthy eating, Guido would point out the high protein content of the £8.99 meal.
More importantly, if idiots want to stuff their faces with death burgers until they have a heart attack, they should be free to do so…
… As Guido is nursing his hangover from last night’s readers’ party. His memory is slightly hazy, but there are a few things he can remember, remember from this fifth of November’s gunpowder treason and plot…
As the sun set in Westminster, one mysterious figure was spotted heading towards parliament wheeling behind him a suspicious looking barrel:
… As co-conspirators studied plans of parliament in the cellar of the Red Lion:
There was a heavy police presence:
While Boris was the star turn at Guido’s awards party two weeks back, last night Jo Johnson followed his brother:
Either Guido had a bizarre dream, or outside Vivienne Westwood was turned away by the cops. No hippies allowed.
It was the kind of party where the high priests of privatisation from the Adam Smith Institute were arguing amiably over a drink with the Cooperative Party’s policy gurus. Guido’s favourite moment was Miliband’s policy guru Lord (Stewart) Wood and Labour’s head of spin Bob Roberts walking into the crowd of co-conspirators and bolting when asked for selfies. See you next year…
Join us tonight to celebrate 10 years of Guido, downstairs at the Red Lion from 6pm. A load of drunks in a cellar on November 5, what could possibly go wrong…
We’re having a drinks party for co-conspirators, this Wednesday, which not uncoincidentally is November Fifth. Guidogram subscribers will get the invitation tonight, and numbers are limited. Guido is putting £1,000 behind the bar…
You can subscribe to the Guidogram here. Alcohol in a cellar in Westminster on November Fifth? What could go wrong…
