Nadine: “We Need a Kill Cameron Strategy, Not a Voice”

Earlier Guido noted that the Conservative Voice team were “not quite saying what they wanted”. No such restraint from one Tory backbencher. Nadine Dorries isn’t very happy with the new group, particularly the fact that this morning’s launch consisted of an all-male panel. Speaking more broadly she tells Guido:

“We need a kill Cameron strategy, not a voice.”

Metaphorically speaking of course, but ouch. Guido wonders how many of her colleagues agree…

UPDATE: Nadine is stressing the metaphorical aspect of that quote. As originally stated above.

UPDATE II:

Video: Galloway to Anti-Assad Critic: “You Make Me Sick”

After coining the phrase “Bradford-spring”, it would seem George Galloway is not so happy about other Arab revolutions. When the Bradford MP accepted his £80,000 al-Mayadeen TV job. He claimed it’s pro-Assad propretiers would never be as evil as the Murdochs. Watch this and see whether you think they are getting their money’s worth:

And what is with the accent?

Video: Another Heathrow Dough Blow for Yeo

Guido’s Heathrow/China story earlier was dismissed by pro-Yeo types (of which there are very few) as a conspiracy theory and a weak line of attack. Seems Sky News did not agree with them:

Just because a conflict of interest is declared, it does not mean the conflict of interest goes away…

Rob Colvile reviews Russell Brand’s new book:

“Oddly, the person I feel sorriest for isn’t Brand himself – although he certainly comes across as a rather pitiable figure, projecting his own brokenness on to the world around him – but Johann Hari. Drummed out of Fleet Street for plagiarism, the former Independent columnist has washed up as “my mate Johann, who’s been doing research for this book”. For a genuinely talented polemicist, it would have been a humbling experience to have to treat this sub-undergraduate dross as the scintillating wisdom of a philosopher-king.”



Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
