WATCH: Boris’ Barclays Deed Poll Promise

Boris has vowed to change his name by deed poll to Barclays Johnson if the bank gives him another £100 million towards his cycle hire scheme. As a man who always keeps his word when it comes to dangerous promises, Guido wonders if Barclays feel like making these into famous last words…

Another Happy Reader

One of the Eagles knows her blogs, name-checking the best in her speech opposing the Lobbying Bill:

No mention of that Scrapbook site. Whatever happened to them?

WATCH: Cameron Speaks

Dave absolves Greening of blame, saying it was a technical issue and he has accepted her apology. Presumably there were technical issues with all the other Tory MPs and ministers who didn’t turn up as well. On whether Miliband behaved dishonourably: “it’s up to him to defend how he behaves”. Ed meanwhile says “I don’t think the Government should wash its hands of this issue”. Perhaps he will send Assad a strongly worded letter.

WATCH: Israeli Soldiers Dance Gangnam Style With Palestinians

It’s not all doom and gloom in the Middle East. This is what happened when a group of Israeli soldiers abandoned their patrol to party with Palestinians in a nightclub:

They have now been disciplined, rather than commended…

WATCH: Clegg Bans Cops From Twerking

With the Syria crisis obviously now resolved, the Deputy Prime Minister moved onto the next big issue of the day during Call Clegg on LBC this morning:

Twerking and grinding is not something for a British Police Officer.”

He’s putting out fires all over the place this week…

Fox News Plays Dude Looks Like a Lady During Manning Report

Superb trolling.

WATCH: Farage on Syria

Only one leader coming out against intervention so far. Nigel Farage asks whose side we are on, whether firing cruise missiles into Damascus will make anything better and why we should trust the government when they say there is “no doubt” Assad is responsible. It is the populist position…

WATCH: “Do We Have Anyone Pro-Miliband?” “No”

Another phone in, another damning verdict on Ed Miliband. The Wright Stuff couldn’t find a single caller to stick up for Ed, despite it being aired in the middle of the day, prime time for Labour voters:

Quote of the Day

Janan Ganesh on Labour’s soft left

“Ms Cooper does not believe the previous Labour government was wrong to run a fiscal deficit after 15 years of economic growth. Both she and Mr Burnham think families should be entitled to tax credits for a third child. These views are not mad. They are just a bit too left-wing for Britain. For any serious party, that amounts to the same thing. The soft left is more electable than the hard left but then Mars is more habitable than Neptune: neither planet will host human life anytime soon.”
