European Parliament President: “Britain Belongs to the EU”

As Cameron lunches with Europe’s leaders, the President of the European Parliament continues to do the ‘Out’ campaign’s work for them:

“The European Union and Britain is one thing. The United Kingdom belongs to the European Union.”

Hardly encouraging since Martin Schulz gets a say on any deal Dave comes up with.

Perhaps it was lost in translation…

Watson Flanked By Sex Segregation Councillors in New Campaign Video

Bad enough that Steve Coogan and Eddie Izzard feature in Tom Watson’s new campaign video for his deputy leadership bid, but look who he has standing behind him at the end of the film:

On the left, Ansar Ali Khan and on the right, Mariam Khan, the two Labour councillors who organised the party’s controversial sex segregated rally, attended by Watson before the election.

A candidate standing for social justice and equality might have quietly sidelined the Khans after such an unsavoury episode. Instead Watson puts them front and centre…

Owen Jones v Dan Hodges: “The Katie Hopkins of the Blairite Right”

Jones: “You’ve never, ever, ever, ever come up with a single constructive policy proposal about what you’d like to see Labour doing. You don’t add anything constructive to the debate. What does Dan Hodges stand for?”

Hodges: “Actually, I did Owen. I said look at what Ed Miliband’s doing and do the opposite.”

Anthony Akbar! New Labour Taliban Assault on Burnham HQ

Spotted outside 83 Victoria Street, the building that houses the headquarters of Andy Burnham and Liz Kendall, this afternoon:

And down the road at Labour HQ:

Long live Mr Tony, peace be upon him.

Bring Back Blair….

Kay Dodgems Ofcom Rap

Ofcom has cleared Kay Burley after a spurious petition called for an investigation into her interview with the unrepentant boss of Alton Towers, who had insisted there were no safety problems with his rides:

“Ofcom received a number of complaints about Kay Burley’s questioning style during an interview about an accident at Alton Towers. We have carefully assessed whether this interview exceeded generally accepted standards. In our view, the interviewee was able to respond fully to the questions and put his position across. As a result we have not taken the matter forward for investigation.”

Petitions about TV presenters never get anywhere anyway…

Bumbling Burnham Crashes and Burns on Benefits and Petrol

Lots of gold from the GMB Labour leadership hustings today.

Firstly, Andy Burnham was booed as he floundered around refusing to back the benefit cap.

The crowd wanted a no, but he knew the country would give a resounding yes.

And the banter did not stop there. He later got the price of litre of petrol wrong, declaring it was 160p:

It’s 116p.

Delicious…

 

Kay Burley Burns Tory MP

“We are a broad-church” insisted new Tory MP Craig Mackinlay to Sky News earlier.

 “You know what happened in that TV programme?” replied Kay Burley. “Lots of people die.”

Quote of the Day

Charles Clarke says Cameron is the most successful PM for over a century…

“Under Margaret Thatcher the Conservatives gained 99 seats. They lost 211 under John Major, gained one under William Hague, quickly and wisely got rid of Ian Duncan-Smith, gained 32 under Michael Howard and have so far gained 133 under David Cameron who, to the great surprise of many (including senior Conservatives), has turned out to be the most electorally successful Tory leader since 1900.”
