Sadiq: “I’m Sorry” For Racial Slur Against Moderate Muslims

An unfortunate headline the day before the polls open…

Labour Councillor Defends Comparing Jews to Hitler

Suspended Labour councillor Shah Hussain has been on the Daily Politics to defend comparing a Jewish footballer to Hitler. Apparently he is the victim of a “witch-hunt”: “I’m a Muslim councillor and therefore my comments have been taken out of context”. He may need a better defence when he appeals his case to the NEC…

Guido’s Celebrity Injunction Advice

“If you don’t want to be on the front page of the newspapers then don’t pay hookers to stick dildos up your bum.”

UKIP’s David Coburn Pranked

Legendary comical ‘Kipper David Coburn tried his hand at live broadcasting app Periscope during the Scottish leaders’ debates last night. Unfortunately Davey was sabotaged by his mischievous audience, who conspired to tell him his sound wasn’t working. Little did he know we could hear everything he was saying…

Snow Asks Farage: Are You At It Too?

Jon Snow asks Nigel Farage if UKIP are guilty of overspending too. Nige pleads his innocence…

Protester Chucks Dildo At Minister

Meanwhile in New Zealand, a protester has lobbed a sex toy at minister Steven Joyce, slapping him right across the face. Joyce later told reporters he was “surprised” but “fine“. Usually something you see on Sky Sports News rather than the actual news.

When Cameron and Osborne Laughed at a ‘Red Card’

This clip from 2008 shows Cameron and Osborne smirking and laughing at the idea of a ‘red card’ for EU legislation, as William Hague mocks such a plan in a withering speech at the despatch box:

“It doesn’t take much of a political analyst to work out that the chances of this mechanism being employed on any regular basis are vanishingly small… You only have to consider this for a moment to begin to laugh about it…”

Eight years later, Dave and George claim unconvincingly that their red card is reason enough to vote to Remain…[…]

“Er, Um, Crikey!” Fabbers Has Hancock Spluttering

Matt Hancock looked a little lost for words in response to Michael Fabricant’s praise for Waitrose chief Mark Price in the Commons:

Michael Fabricant : I did not have to use the Freedom of Information Act because I went on to the gov.uk website to find out that the excellent Mark Price, managing director of Waitrose, is now a non-executive director of the board of the Cabinet Office.

Cameron’s Attack on Corbyn and “A Bunch of Migrants”

Only Corbyn could have missed today’s Google open goal at PMQs. This was Cameron’s punchy three-pronged put down:

“They met with the unions and they gave them flying pickets.

They met with the Argentinians and they gave them the Falkland Islands.

Jess Phillips’ First Question Time Appearance in 2010

Question Time have dug out Labour rising star Jess Phillips’ first ever appearance – from the audience – back in 2010. A young Jess asked Sayeeda Warsi about “the cuts” and “ivory towers”. Her message has been somewhat refined since then…

Stuart Rose Forgets BSE’s Name 4 Times

Yet another spectacular gaffe from the accident prone In campaign chairman Stuart Rose, who apparently has no idea what his campaign is called.

First attempt: “Stay in Britain.” Wrong.

Second attempt: “Better in Britain Campaign.” What?

Third time lucky? “The Better in Britain Campaign.” Nope…

Attempt number four: “Better Stay in Britain Campaign.” Err…

There’s a very easy way to remember the Britain Stronger in Europe campaign, Sir Stuart.[…]

Balls Swaps Marr & Brillo For Fletch & Sav

What is Ed Balls up to these days? The new Norwich City FC chairman swapped Marr and Brillo on BBC1 for ten minutes on the sofa with BT Sport’s Fletch & Sav this weekend. Balls says he’s done with politics for good:

“I did 20 years in politics and I’m done with politics, I’m out now, I’m not expecting to go back, I don’t think I’ll ever be re-elected again.”

Before Robbie Savage brilliantly asked: “So, what made you leave Parliament?”

“The electorate, general election, people vote – I was an MP for 10 years but at the last general election I lost my constituency up in Leeds to the Conservatives.

Another Happy Reader: McDonnell Mocks Osborne’s Chopper

Not every day John McDonnell quotes Guido stories in the Commons chamber, though he clearly enjoyed our scoop on George Osborne’s helicopter trips to fundraising dinners:

“He’ll jump into a helicopter for a Tory fundraiser, but it’s taken him four months to lift a finger to save steelworkers’ jobs.”

Heli freezes over…[…]

Dromey Would Ban Trump, Welcome Dictators and Head-Choppers

Piers Morgan enjoyably skewered Jack Dromey over his tedious support for the Trump ban on Good Morning Britain.

On whether he’d ban Putin, Dromey replied: “No I wouldn’t.

On a ban for head-chopping Saudi King Salman: “No, I wouldn’t ban him.”

What about Robert Mugabe? […]

Quote of the Day

Owen Smith backs one hour contracts but wants to abolish zero hours contracts:

“You need to give people a contract to say, ‘here’s what you will be working’. It could be one, but I’m saying it shouldn’t be zero, we should invert that emphasis.”
