Like Liz for Leader

Lefties on Facebook, well the ones that used to go on about “Tory Blair”, have got a new wheeze. The “Liz Kendall for Conservative Leader” Facebook supporters page. Like it…

Since when do Gov.uk do funnies in their press releases?

Guido for one welcomes our new punning overlords…

Zac’s Campaign Chair is Nick de Bois, Lynton’s CTF Advising

zac+nic

Guido hears that Zac has managed to secure the services of Nick de Bois, who is apparently going to chair and run Zac’s selection campaign. Lynton Crosby’s CTF Partners are on hand to offer Zac advice on his campaign. For someone who was willing to put his fate in the hands of his electorate, Zac certainly seems serious about it now…

Labour Admit They Can’t Stop Tories Voting For Corbyn

maxresdefault

Last week Labour sought to nip the #ToriesForCorbyn campaign in the bud by insisting everyone voting must “support the aims and values of the Labour Party and if they don’t then they won’t be allowed to take part”.

Since then, the only change made to the process has been to ask participants to agree to this statement:

“I support the aims and values of the Labour Party, and I am not a supporter of any organisation opposed to it.”

Yet Labour NEC veteran Ann Black last night admitted that the new system would not stop Tory entryists:

“Some members are concerned about registered supporters and whether our political enemies can subvert the process… Of course people can always lie”

The Corbyn campaign is now seeking to allay concerns:

“much has been made of the idea that Tories are joining the party to vote for this or that candidate. Our instincts tell us to be suspicious of a storm whipped up mainly by the Tory Press. We doubt if it adds up to much.”

He might doubt it, but he’ll be hoping that it does…

Labour U-Turn on Public Engagement Promise to Stop #ToriesForCorbyn

maxresdefault

Despite Harriet Harman’s promise that Labour aren’t “afraid” to allow Joe Public a vote in their leadership contest…

“We must let the public in. Into the process and into our minds as we make the decisions about who is our next leader and how we go forward. So we are going to start that with how we do the leadership elections.”

… The party tell MailOnline that they will now require a “verification” process to root out Tory entryists. A Labour source tells Guido:

“Registered supporters have to support the aims and values of the Labour Party and if they don’t then they won’t be allowed to take part.”

The end of #ToriesForCorbyn? A cunning plan relying only on the Tories never telling a lie…

Westminster Arms Faces Closure Threat

Worrying news for one of Westminster’s favourite watering holes. Guido understands that the Westminster Arms on Storey’s Gate – preferred pub of Nigel Farage and half of CCHQ – is facing a fight to stay open.

The Arms is run by Irish firebrand Gerry Dolan but co-owned by an equity company, which owns the building next door and the downstairs bar. Dolan reveals he is contesting plans to develop the neighbouring offices into flats, which would see punters banned from drinking on the pavement outside the pub. The downstairs bar, which houses the ladies’ loos, is also set to go, meaning the pub faces the prospect of only having a gents’ toilets. Dolan tells Guido “it would be the death of the pub”.

A Call to Arms has been launched to save the pub, fellow boozers can sign up here

UPDATE: The equity company is GM Investment Trustees Limited, a subsidiary of General Motors.

Broad Early Support For Corbyn

Last month Guido speculated that Labour’s enemies might ‘do a Balotelli’ and take up Harriet Harman’s offer to engage in the party’s leadership race.

Jeremy Corbyn is certainly enjoying some broad early support…

Tories, LibDems and “social media socialists” of the world, unite!
