‘Eck-Rated: Salmond’s Mile High Nose Dig

The former First Minister was filmed digging for victory by a fellow passenger on a flight down from Aberdeen. In all he spends over a minute picking, inspecting and picking again:

Readers can make their minds up about whether his finger then went to his mouth:

Living up to his reputation as Westminster’s bogeyman…

Loony Milifan: “Ed Miliband is Too Good For This F**king Country”

Well Labour fanboy Richard Biggs, creator of the @cooledmiliband Twitter account, certainly made the most of his one and only time on the telly:

That’s one way of generating headlines…

Miliband Speaks From the Backbenches: I Used to Be Famous

“In the time since the election I can report to the House that I have found some small consolations of losing. Spending time with my two boys, who feel that they have their dad back. Though I confess that my eldest, who’s just turned six, did bring me further down to earth last week. He suddenly turned to me out of the blue and said ‘Dad, if there’s a fire at our house I think we’ll be ok’.

I said ‘why’s that Daniel?’

And he said, ‘if we ring the fire brigade, they’ll recognise your name because you used to be famous’.

‘Thanks very much,’ I said.

From my ‘used to be famous’ position on the backbenches, I look forward to helping play my part.”

Classily done. Sounds like he’s sticking around…

Osborne Tribute to Miliband

Ed has a speech with him…

Human Rights Weren’t Invented in 1998

“King John rode from his castle here to Runnymede where he met the barons to sign the Magna Carta. The principles enshrined in Magna Carta; the primacy of the rule of the law; that none shall be taxed without representation and importantly the freedom of the English church, are seen as the first glimmers of Human Rights. They are principles that bolstered my desire to enter public service. The House will be aware that Human Rights were not conceived in 1998 they existed for centuries…”
New Tory MP Ranil Jayawardena hits the nail on the head during his maiden speech.

At Last! Burnham Gets an Endorsement From the South of England

So far not a single Labour MP south of Stoke has backed Andy Burnham for leader, though he won the support of the member for South West Surrey today:

“It is a topsy turvy world when the Shadow Health Secretary, who was the scourge of private sector involvement in the NHS, now wants to be the entrepeneur’s champion. As one entrepeneur to another, can I put our differences to one side and on behalf of the whole Conservative Party wish him every success in his left-wing leadership bid. It is perhaps the only occasion in history when our interests and those of Len McCluskey are totally aligned.”

From Burnham’s grimace he knows it’s true…

Ex-Balls Aide Slaps Miliband’s “Squeezed Bottom”

Former Balls spinner Alex Belardinelli has been giving his prescription for where things went wrong under Miliband on the Daily Politics:

“We didn’t do enough. I think there are things we could have done differently. I think we could have had a message that was more pro-business. I think fiscal responsibility and making the sums add up could have been part of our message more day by day. And also I think we needed a broader a message… towards the end it ended up becoming less of a squeezed middle and more of a squeezed bottom. Most people aren’t affected by [the bedroom tax and zero hours contracts] and we know people don’t vote in an altruistic way.”

Sounds like we will be seeing more of the uncanny mannerisms that Belardinelli shares with his old boss. Shut your eyes and it could be Balls speaking. He says his future plans include TV punditry…

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.”
