Balls and the Tea-Boy Boss

Brillo was on form earlier, making Ed Balls squirm:

Balls went on to admit he had lent Alan Johnson “a few of my text books”. He also managed to successfully play up the economic divisions on the Labour frontbench and chastise his leader’s choice of PMQs questions. It’s almost as if he were up to his old tricks…

Guy News: BBC’s CuntryFile

Three uses of the C-word in one day on the BBC. Hunt took it with a smile, but they might come to regret upsetting the Culture Secretary, the Minister responsible for the Beeb….

Hancock’s Russian Lolita Faces Deportation for Spying

According to reports “She would walk around in very short skirts and high heels with Hancock and they would be seen having lunch together. Certainly some thought she was charming and intelligent.”

1% of Tory Election Expenditure Went on Bambi Killing

Going through the £16 million the Tories spent on the election Guido had to laugh when he came across a bill for nearly £30,000 for a dinner at Annabel’s in the Tories’ declared election expenditure, but Return Three is the gift that just keeps giving:

The Carphone Warehouse boss and intriguing donor David Ross donated £40,000 for “shooting” as an auction prize at a fund-raising dinner and billionaire Richard Caring donated another £140,000 worth of shooting. As they were given away as auction prizes the cost had to be factored into notional election spending. Of the total £16,682,874 the Tories spent, some 1% on this:

Guy News: Dave at the Footie

The New Statesman are constantly trying to paint Dave as too posh for football and completely ignorant of the beautiful game. Today they have even gone so far as to claim that this video isn’t of him. Guido calls them on this unfounded smear:

Given that the chap next to Dave in the video bears a remarkable similarity to the former Tory treasurer Jonathan Marland, now a peer, it seems certain to Guido that it really is Dave.  Throw in the emerging bald spot and it would seem the Staggers are yet again making it up for political purposes. Nice try.

Given the extent of the lobbying job Dave is undertaking in Zurich it seems pretty likely that the PM is nowadays a genuine England fan. After his Blairesque speech to FIFA England have gone favourite at the bookies...

Do They Know They’re Born?

This has to be a pretty compelling argument for students paying their way. Guido presents to you the best and brightest of Northumbria University:

Comparing the privileged life of an undergraduate to kids starving in Africa, who have to worry about their next meal rather than their media studies assignment. Nice.

Tatler’s Intriguing Top Tory Totty

It is seemingly slim pickings for a single girl in Westminster. Tatler’s annual list of London’s most Eligible Bachelors 2010 is out. In the top ten we have one Christopher Myers, presumably going for the lifetime achievement award, and our miniature Member from Penrith, Rory “definitely not a spook” Stewart.

While the the girls might find it tough to win over Mr Myers, Guido is pretty sure both he and Chris are better dancers than Rory:

Form an orderly queue…

Guy News: Mock the Liar

Comedian Ed Byrne of Mock the Week fame is one of those of those extremely punchable lefties, he is also a bit of a fibber. Last night he denied ever promoting tuition fees:

They even press released it. You can’t hide those lyin’ eyes…

UPDATE: “Mr” Ed Byrne tweets: “I hold my hands up. Completely forgot about it. Apologies to David Willets”

Cathy Jamieson MP, Labour’s Shadow Treasury minister, commenting on Treasury analysis of the economic impact of tax changes…

“If the Treasury is looking at the economic impact of tax changes, then surely it should examine the impact of the rise in VAT and cuts to tax credits? George Osborne’s £12 billion VAT rise knocked confidence, helped to choke off the recovery and has cost families £1,350 over the last three years.”
