WATCH: Harman Refuses to Say PIE Affiliation was a Mistake

Well Harriet Harman’s clear-the-air, kill the story interview with Newsnight went well then. Time and time again Laura Kuenssberg asked Harman if she would say that the National Council of Civil Liberites’ decision to affiliate with the Paedophile Information Exchange was a mistake. Time and time again Harman, almost inexplicably, refused. Guaranteeing the story will keep going for a while at least…

Tory Spin-Doctor Arrested Over Alleged ‘Cannibal’ Assault
Two Men Bitten in Bloody Hampshire Brawl

Adrian Yalland, a former Tory candidate and fixer for various Tory MPs has been arrested for assault after apparently biting two men during a brawl in Hampshire. The video below is alleged to show Yalland, formerly a spinner for spin shop Chelgate, attacking a man on a quiet street in Stockbridge:

Hampshire Police confirmed in a statement to Guido: “Police were called at 4.10 p.m. on Thursday, February 20 following a report of a dispute outside an address on Stockbridge High Street. A 56-year-old man and a 46-year-old man both from Stockbridge suffered minor injuries. A 44-year-old man from Marchwood was arrested on suspicion of assault. He has been bailed pending further enquiries until March 27.”

Yalland handled the press for Nigel Evans when he was charged and has worked with various MPs including Andrew Bridgen and Nadine Dorries.

  • A Tory spokesperson says: “This is a matter for the police.”
  • Nigel Evans’ office says: “I don’t think we can make any comment.”
  • Adrian Yalland was not answering his phone today.

Not the best PR spin strategy…

WATCH: 12 Year-Old John Bercow’s TV Debut on Crackerjack

For those who didn’t see this in the Sun on Sunday, the video shows a 12 year-old John Bercow, in his Finchley Manorhill School uniform competing on Crackerjack. Crackerjack ran for 29 years, and 451 shows. Top game was a quiz, with prizes won for a right answer and cabbages for a wrong one. No-one lost — everyone got a coveted Crackerjack pencil. Whenever the host – Ed Stewpot in this case – said the word “crakerjack” the studio audience shouted back in panto fashion “crackerjack”. This was interactive television…

Guido suspects that MPs of a certain age will not be able to restrain themselves from shouting the catchphrase…

Gordon Funds Jet-Set Lifestyle With £10,000-a-Week ‘Expenses’
Brown Office Gives Just 1 in 4 Pounds Raised to Charity

UPDATE 21 March 2014:  The above video was removed from the BBC iPlayer archive at Gordon Brown’s insistence. This is a copy hosted on our own offshore server rather than any third party provider.

———————-

Since 2010 Gordon Brown has submitted more Press Complaints Commission complaints than he has delivered speeches in the House, meaning you won’t read about the financial affairs of the Office of Gordon and Sarah Brown in the papers. So Guido was pleased to have the opportunity to share the story with a wider audience on the Daily Politics this lunchtime.

  • Office of Gordon and Sarah Brown has £10,000-a-week expenses
  • Not a registered charity, two thirds of funds raised spent on expenses
  • Less than  £1 million given to charity out of over £3 million raised
  • Vanity project lets  Gordon and Sarah enjoy jet-set premier life-style of first class flights and five star hotels

Brillo asked the pertinent question of Gordon: “Mentally, is he out of it?”

Labour’s Spoof Tory Facebook Memories

Pretty good attack video, light touch, amusing and not too laboured. This has Blue State Digital’s fingerprints all over it. Better production values than we have seen recently, will it win any votes?

Flood Hit MP Asks Miliband: Why are You Actually Here?

Ed was confronted by an angry Reading resident on his travels this morning. Click below to see what happened:

Better late than never Ed might say, but Tory MP Alok Sharma’s question of what he was actually doing there is a fair one…

WATCH: Hammond Confronted by Angry Flood Victim

The Defence Secretary had his own Chris Smith moment in Berkshire this morning. “Why don’t we talk about this inside…?”

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
