MUSICAL SPECIAL: Claire Perry Does the Locomotion

New rail minister Claire Perry showed she is well on top of her new brief as she left Downing Street this afternoon, sharing her good news with assembled news crews in style. As ever, Guido put it to music:

Come on, baby, do the locomotion!

WATCH: Question Time’s Passionate Highlander

Those who wish to deny freedom for Scotland have so far failed to convince in terms of the emotional argument, so they could do worse than listen to this “passionate highlander” on Question Time last night:

Fightin’ talk…

Ed Miliband: I’ve Got My Eyes on You

Mesmerised Ed got lost in Yvette’s words as she spoke at the despatch box earlier. Well, he was checking something out anyway. Guido thought he would put their touching moment to music:

“You’re everything that I see…”

WATCH: How IDF Avoids Hamas Human Shields in Gaza

“This video clearly shows the steps taken by the IDF to avoid civilian casualties in Gaza being undermined by Hamas. 

IDF aircraft targets a building with a loud but non-lethal bomb that warns civilians that they are in the vicinity of a weapons cache or other target. This method is used to allow all residents to leave the area before the IDF targets the site with live ammunition.

However, in this video,the residents flee the home but then many others come and ascend to the roof and act as human shields. 

The IDF aircraft sees the band of civilians on the roof and therefore aborts the strike.”

Meanwhile, Palestinian terrorists in Gaza have fired 96 rockets indiscriminately at Israel today, and 442 in the past 3 days…

GUY NEWS: When Harman Said Gordon Wasn’t Sexist

Pressed by Iain Dale last night, Harriet Harman was adamant that she stuck by her accusations of sexism levelled against Gordon Brown:

“I think it is unlikely that if one of the men had won [the Labour deputy leadership] instead of me, that they would not have been made Deputy Prime Minister.”

That’s not what she used to say. When Caroline Flint resigned in 2009, accusing the former Prime Mentalist of treating her like “female window-dressing”, Hattie insisted that allegations of sexism against Gordon were unfounded:

“I can understand the frustration of any woman in politics but it’s not true to say that Gordon Brown doesn’t take women in politics seriously.”

So, was she telling the truth then, or now?

WATCH: Farage Says Pay Politicians More

Remember Nigel Farage? The slayer of the political class, popper of the bloated balloon and self-declared warrior for the people. Well he wants to pay MPs more:

“Would we object to 650 people earning a bit more money? I don’t think we would… I haven’t thought about it but we could certainly pay them more than that. Why don’t we say that if we paid MPs the same as the local headmaster of the local comprehensive, that would be about right. £90,000-£100,000.”

That didn’t take long, did it?

WATCH: Former Tory Whip Boasts About Paedo MP Cover Up

Pat on the back for the BBC researcher who dug this out of the archives. Back in 1995 the late Tim Fortescue, who was a Tory whip in the Heath years, explained how party whips could help cover up a potential paedophile scandal:

“Anyone with any sense who was in trouble would come to the whips and tell them the truth, and say now, “I’m in a jam, can you help?” It might be debt, it might be a scandal involving small boys, or any kind of scandal which a member seemed likely to be mixed up in, they’d come and ask if we could help. And if we could, we did. We would do everything we can because we would store up brownie points. That sounds a pretty nasty reason but one of the reasons is, if we can get a chap out of trouble, he’ll do as we ask forever more.”

His little black book must have made for eye-watering reading…
