Video: Chuka Skewered by Paxman

Ed has had a good conference, even Balls managed to get the tone of his speech right. Two-faced Chuka Umunna on the other hand has had a nightmare. He spent the first few days pea-cocking about his future leadership potential, but has gone very quiet about that since Ed’s speech. Last night he was utterly Paxo-d, failing to give a coherent explanation of the deliberate millionaire tax cut dishonesty. The facial expressions are Miliband worthy. This was the week that Chuka was found out…

Video: Butch Balls Blasts Dave

Promising to take a long, hard look at spending whilst not actually committing to cutting anything is classic Balls. Guido enjoyed his line that “If David Cameron is butch, where does that leave George Osborne?”, and the conference hall loved the “Flatline Kid” gag. It was a leader’s speech…

Andy Williams on Obama

Ol’ Blue Eyes Andy Williams has died at age 84. Guido will leave you with some of his final public words. About President Obama:

“Don’t like him at all, I think he wants to create a socialist country. The people he associates with are very left-wing. One is registered as a Communist. Obama is following Marxist theory. He’s taken over the banks and the car industry. He wants the country to fail.”

Rest in peace, oh speaker of truth…

Farage Fine Appeal Fails
UKIP Inundated with Americans Offering to Pay It

Nigel Farage has lost his appeal for a €2,990 fine for accusing EU President Herman Van Rompuy of having the charisma of a “damp rag” or a “low-grade bank clerk.”  Apparently the UKIP leader will now have “to bear his own costs and to pay those of the European Parliament.” As Zero Hedge says, they clearly want him to pay off the EU’s debts one fine at a time.

Farage says he is now weighing up his options of further appeal but stands by the “freedom of speech of all elected members, not just for supporters of the EU’s political union.” The press over here have been exceptionally quiet about all this, and thus it’s fallen to Drudge and the Washington Post across the pond to pick it up. Farage’s people tell Guido that they have been inundated with offers from Americans to pay the fine:

“One man was so determined he said that he was going to pay almost the whole lot but as he was only a driver we had to wait until April 2013 to get the money – which obviously we aren’t going to take but it’s lovely to know that there are people in the world who value freedom of speech.”

The silence over here is rather odd.

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.
