WATCH: Gloria’s Porky on the Doorstep

Guido was tickled by this clip of Gloria de Piero, filmed on the campaign trail putting leaflets through people’s doors. Deliciously followed by Gloria telling the Beeb, and Guido quotes, “we’re not putting loads of leaflets through people’s doors”. Telling fibs is second nature to them…

Delingpole Coy on Tory Return Rumour

As this video of Michael Gove wandering through James Delingpole’s garden went viral yesterday, Guido wondered if James, who joined UKIP but then failed to pass the party’s selection process, might be heading home to the Tories. He certainly seems to be enjoying Owen Paterson’s return to the limelight, and his tweets on UKIP have been very critical of late:

He tells Guido:

“It’s a great rumour. I think where UKIP and Conservatives are concerned I’m going to remain bisexual. Basically, I f**king hate politics.”

Having it both ways…

POLL: Who’s Right, Peter Oborne or Craig Oliver?

Peter Oborne went on Newsnight on Wednesday to express a rarely vocalised view in Westminster, namely that Craig Oliver is a “particularly grubby individual”:

No.10’s Super Spinner has responded in a letter published by Ephraim Hardcastle this morning, accusing Oborne of being drunk:

Dear Peter

I just wanted to check you are OK. Some BBC people have been on to me worried you were a bit tired and emotional last night.

Let me know if I can help.

Best wishes,

Craig Oliver.

To which Peter replies:

“I am absolutely astonished that an official working for the Prime Minister would use such terminology. It is offensive and inaccurate. I hope that when he has taken time to consider it he’ll withdraw these remarks which are unworthy of a Downing Street Director of Communications.”

Who was right?

Let the people decide…

Eagle Crash Landed
Watch Question Time Audience Turn on Labour Over Freud

Angela Eagle assumed she would automatically carry the Question Time audience with her as they discussed Lord Freud last night. Instead the room turned on Labour, jeering and heckling, coming down on the side of the stitched up welfare minister:

One audience member called Labour’s position “extremely disingenuous”, another was applauded by the whole room for calling out their “hypocritical point-scoring”, describing them as “disgusting”. Another said “the smirk on her face” showed Eagle knew she was telling fibs. If Labour can’t convince even the audience of Question Time, it suggests their attack on Freud may not have cut through as well as they’d hoped…

WATCH: Carswell Silences the Establishment

Et Tu, Owen Jonus?

Don’t believe Guido, take a look at what the Labour commentariat’s enfant terrible has to say:

Meanwhile John ‘McPangloss’ McTernan has gone all Dan Hodges this afternoon:

“We have lost the power of hearing… We talk about housing policies when people want a home. We talk about jobs as an end in themselves when people see them as the start of something – the ability to make a downpayment on a dream. We see life as a set of problems to be solved by policies when people see life as something to be lived and enjoyed. We are in deep, deep trouble. We are lost and our voters want us back. They keep sending us messages. When will we listen?”

Even the loyalists at LabourList and Left Foot Forward are telling Miliband to wake up. These are not the usual suspects…
