Cameron Caught on Camera
Queen “Purred” at No Vote, “I Want to Sue” Polling Companies

The PM’s unguarded comments to Michael Bloomberg about the Scottish referendum have been caught on tape by Sky News:

“The definition of relief is being Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and calling the Queen and saying ‘It’s alright, it’s okay’. That was something. She purred down the line… But it should never have been that close, it wasn’t in the end. There was a time in the middle of the campaign when it felt… I’ve said I want to find these polling companies and I want to sue them for my stomach ulcers because of what they put me through. It was very nervous moments.”

Yikes!

WATCH: Balls Benefit Backtrack Leaves Reeves Baffled

If you want to see how well-costed and prepared Labour were for Ed Balls’ child benefit announcement earlier, watch Rachel Reeves try to explain the numbers on the Daily Politics. Labour says it will save £400 million, the Treasury say £120 million. Reeves on the other hand reckons it will save ‘several million’. That new found Labour economic competence in full…

WATCH: Chuka Can’t Name Three Members of Scottish Labour

Were you still up for Chuka? In the wake of the Scotland vote on Friday, Brillo took the Shadow Business Secretary to task, asking him on Newsnight if he could name three members of Labour’s shadow cabinet in Scotland:

CU: “Of our shadow cabinet? You’ve got Joanna – Johann Lamont, you’ve got Kezia Dugdale…”

AN: “What does she do?”

CU: “I’m not totally sure of the exact portfolio…”

AN: “She’s education. Could you name any more?”

CU: “Er, not off the top of my head, no. And your point… I’m not a Scottish MP and I’m not a member of a Scottish shadow cabinet.”

What was that about One Nation Labour?

Labour Cynically Attack English Votes as “Politically Driven”

“We have heard the voice of Scotland and now the millions of voices of England must also be heard,” said David Cameron this morning, strongly suggesting that he will press for English votes for English laws and finally answer the West Lothian question. Within five minutes Labour had come out against the idea:

Very amusing of Wee Dougie to attack the plan as being “driven by politics”. Of course Labour’s opposition to English votes for English laws definitely isn’t driven by their cynical, anti-democratic need for Scottish MPs to pass legislation in England. Normal politics resumes…

Björk Backs Yes

yes-bjork

The lyrics call for a new flag, new currency and protection of indigenous languages and to ignore the patronising.

Funking for freedom…

WATCH: Don’t Give “Effing Tories” a Kick Pleads Cameron

After an hour’s delay parts of Cameron’s speech finally trickle out:

“Because it’s an election, because it’s a ballot, people can feel like it’s a general election. That you make a decision and five years later you can make another decision. If you’re fed up with the effing Tories give them a kick. This is totally different.”

How long before Salmond uses that one…
