Guy News Champagne Special: Cheers Chris

FLASHBACK:

It’s been a long eight months…

Toking Councillor Reaches New High

Good on Labour’s Farooq Ahmed for declaring he will remain a councillor in Rochdale, despite being grassed up by his own team for smoking a spliff. Having been booted out of the Labour Party, he was going to resign his office, yet now declares he has “overwhelming support from the local community”. Surely the LibDems will welcome him with open arms?

Brillo’s Rave

Guido isn’t quite sure what to make of Jacqui Smith throwing some shapes…

Totty Watch: Egyptian Freedom Edition

Good on Egyptian blogger Aliaa Magda Elmahdy. She posted a naked picture of herself on her blog and it’s launched a national debate in Egypt about sex, women, morality and freedom.

It’s not safe for work/pre-Mubarak Egyptian society, but her site has had over a million and half views since. Guido will be posting his own topless pictures in solidarity later…

Christmas Cancelling Teachers Union Makes One Exception

Yesterday the Express reported that the militant head-bangers over at the NASUWT were ordering their members

“not to put up festive decorations or help produce Nativity plays and carol concerts in a dispute which could go on for months. Union rules say that members will be expected to “stick rigidly” to the 32.5-hour working week. They will also be told to refuse to perform any duties on a list of “21 administrative and clerical tasks that should not be routinely carried out by teachers” according to a national document outlining pay and conditions.”

Bah humbug etc! 

So imagine Guido’s amusement when this invitation reached his inbox this morning:

Will the NASUWT officials bother putting the tinsel up for this one? Or is organising their own Christmas party an “administrative and clerical tasks that should not be routinely carried out by teachers”? They couldn’t have anything interfering with their strict adherence to that 32.5 hour week now could they…

In the Beginning there was Samizdata…
British Political Blogging Pioneer 10 Years Old Today

Perry de Havilland, the British Blogfather, reminds us that the Samizdata blog today celebrates ten years existence and the creation of 13,315 articles and 226,617 comments. It was a revelation to discover easy to use software that allowed push-button publication of articles without requiring technical knowledge. There were also some good parties…

Before there was ConservativeHome, before there was Recess Monkey (R.I.P.), before even Iain Dale had an online diary, there were Samizdistas. Long before he heard of HTML Guido began taking baby blogging steps at Samizdata. In a sense Samizdata begat Order-Order.com

Offord’s Legislative Hiccup

As the Legal Aid Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Bill makes it way through Parliament, honorable Members are having fun tacking bits and bobs to the legislation. Tory MP Matthew Offord has inserted a new clause calling for mandatory sobriety for those involved in alcohol related criminality.

Presumably this will be applicable to those involved in scotch fuelled scuffles at Tory conference?

Open a Beer, Sit Back, Turn Up the Volume, Sing-a-Long…

Feeling the Love

Guido was beginning to get a little disappointed at the lack of vitriol against him at his first ever Labour conference visit, though that soon changed as the sun went down and the beer started flowing last night. Popping in […]

Quote of the Day

Rod Liddle:

“Family of 12 from Luton – including a baby and two grandparents who are suffering from diabetes and cancer – feared to have joined ISIS… yay – result! That’s saved us all quite a few bob, no? Carry on like this and we might clear the national debt.”
