Nadhim Zahawi PMQs Musical Special:
“This Blessed Plot, This Earth, This Realm, This England!”

Guido felt it was only right to put Nadhim Zahawi’s PMQ to music:

“When I see a white van, Mr Speaker, I think of the small business owner who works long hours to put food on the family table. 

When I see the cross of St. George, I think of the words of my constituent William Shakespeare: This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England!

Will my Rt. Hon friend agree with me that we shouldn’t sneer at people who work hard, who are patriotic, and who love their country?”

A stirring speech to rival Dave’s “Love Actually” moment

Ed Didn’t Start the Fire

It started with a hashtag and ended with a musical turn.

5 out of 10, but worth it for “Axelrod, gone away… what else do I have to say?’.

Skinner: Vote UKIP and I’ll Be Dead in Six Months

“I’ve got a United Nations heart bypass… and it was done by a Syrian cardiologist, a Malaysian surgeon, a Dutch doctor, a Nigerian registrar, and these two people here [Reckless and Carswell] talk about sending them back from whence they came. If they did that to the hospitals in London I for one would be dead in six months.”

An old dinosaur accusing UKIP of being stuck in the past…

Arnie Graf: The Accidental Tourist

From the above it looks like the community organising guru has sneaked back into the office of his employers.

Yesterday when Guido caught up with Arnie Graf he claimed us he was just in London visiting on a tourist visa en route to Israel. Guido was sceptical that he was an innocent tourist given Arnie was briefing journalistsHe also said he wasn’t working for the Labour Party any more…

In case you missed it, here is the video of Guido’s encounter with Graf:

The Home Office have been informed…

UKIP Hit Back With Punchy Attack Advert

As UKIP take a 12 point lead in the Rochester by-election and following the Tories going very negative on Mark Reckless, Farage and co have hit back with a snazzy attack ad of their own:

Shame there is no TV advertising space for the parties to buy…

WATCH: Blair Squirms When Grilled on Miliband

Kay Burley was on fine form today pinning down Tony Blair. The former Prime Minister appeared to suggest he didn’t speak to the Labour leader about his leadership woes at the Cenotaph on Sunday, though one thing is clear: he didn’t want to discuss Ed:

At least he had the self-awareness to realise Labour probably didn’t want to hear from him either…

UPDATE: Vintage Kay:

KB: “Do you not think Labour here would really appreciate just 60 seconds comment from you?”

TB: “I doubt it.”

Channel 4 Promotes Racist, Homophobic Fantasist

Last night Channel 4 aired “How Rich Are You?”, a one off special about supposed inequality presented by ex-BBC lefty luvvy Richard Bacon and quasi-Marxist Paul Mason. It was predictably a forum for Comrades Bacon and Mason to shore up their base, inviting Owen Jones et al along to join the party. In a carefully choreographed segment of audience interaction, the programme’s presenters sought the opinion of “Cody”, a man from Manchester who railed against the rich and claimed he was so hard done by he had to do “dodgy things” to get by. Mason’s introduction in the video below implies Cody’s appearance was teed up prior to broadcast.

Cody Aiden Lachey describes himself on Twitter as a “rough & ready former soldier”. He is in fact a fraud who was exposed after he appeared on Newsnight last year, where he was portrayed as an Afghanistan war hero despite being sent home after just two weeks for going AWOL and threatening to kill his battery Sergeant Major. Lachey is also an EDL-linked racist who told the Daily Star“I believe we need to declare war on Islam as ALL Muslims don’t like kafirs, non-believers.” A Twitter account appearing to be run by Lachey described gay footballer Thomas Hitzelsperger as a “puff, faggot who needs castrating”. Lachey also had the following exchange with Owen Jones, confusing him with IEA wonk Ryan Bourne:

Unfortunate that the working class hero chosen by Bacon and Mason to push their quasi-Marxist world view happens to be a fraud, a racist and a homophobe…

UPDATE: Cody has confirmed he was booked by Channel 4 prior to going on. He has responded to the story here.

WATCH: Tories Troll Sadiq Khan at Justice Questions

One topic kept cropping up at Justice Questions today. Chris Grayling took the opportunity to condemn the scourge of using a mobile at the wheel:

“The offence of using a mobile phone while driving is a very serious one. It should be dealt with effectively by the courts, and it is an area where the government is giving active consideration as part of our driving sentences review to strengthen the penalties. It is something that is wholly unacceptable and the courts should deal with it appropriately.” 

While Justice minister Mike Penning shared his own personal experience:

“As an ex-firefighter I used to go to so many of these incidents and the distraction of using a mobile phone is not only illegal it actually kills people, the people using the phone and others, and we should all decry anybody for using a mobile phone while driving.”

For some reason the Shadow Justice Secretary had nothing to add…

Tony Blair threatens Ed:

“If you had a strong political lead that was combining the politics of aspiration with the politics of compassion, I still think that’s where you could get a substantial majority…  If I ever do an interview on [the state of the Labour Party], it will have to be at length…”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
