Ghastly Ghose Does it Again
Worst Carpet-Bagging Digital Fail

20140131-085001.jpgYou almost have to admire the persistence of serial loser Katie “Ghastly” Ghose. The woman who turned a 27% referendum lead for “Yes to AV” into a 36% victory for the “No to AV” campaign has had similar luck in her several ill-fated attempts to find a safe Labour seat to stand in. Now she has thrown her hat into the ring to take the Stoke-on-Trent North seat being vacated by retiring Joan Walley. Ghose’ other half, Fabian Society general secretary Andy Harrop, has been doing his best to boost Katie’s profile, getting her on stage with Owen Jones and Jackie Ashley at his conference last weekend. One word of advice: perhaps she should change the name of the constituency at the top of her new Stoke-on-Trent North website:

Dods’ Tweeter of the Year Isn’t on Twitter

Well this is embarrassing. At last night’s Dods parliamentary awards, editor-in-chief Paul Waugh proudly presented the award for Tweeter of the Year to iPad-loving Labour MP Tom Harris. Dods explained that they felt Harris was a worthy winner “for his daily usage of Twitter.” Just one problem: Harris isn’t actually on Twitter

Cool Clegg Down With the Kidz

Either very late or very early for Ed Balls Day. Or some amusing retaliation…

UPDATE: The Son of Brown can’t let his Gordon’s favourite debate phrase:

How to Get Round Dave’s Porn Block

Porn blocking has claimed its first victims: stopping users from reaching the deep dark parts of the internet like the Lib Dem LGBT website and Guido, among others. TalkTalk and BT are now getting it in the neck for blocking rape crisis centres and gay lifestyle sites. Who could possibly have predicted the filters wouldn’t work.

Fortunately there is a solution. GoAwayCameron.co.uk lets you install an extension on your Chrome browser so you are free to access blocked sites. Which basically means 15 year olds don’t have to tell their mum they want to access porn after all. Politicians not understanding the internet, who would have thought it.

Meantime until everyone installs porn blocker hacks it would be much appreciated if the boffins at T-Mobile could remove http://www.Order-Order.com from their porn blacklist. Guido doesn’t want to have to sue them for loss of earnings…

Video Says No

Labour’s digital strategy is still having some pretty unfortunate teething problems. For some strange reason they have had to take down this week’s big video by Miliband guru Arnie Graf from YouTube. At the time of going to pixel it is marked as private:

Guido understands it was BBC News boss James Harding who intervened over the use of BBC Parliament footage. Doh!

Carswell Victory: Blueprint For “Parliament 2.0″

Guido has always been a firm believer in Douglas Carswell’s prophecy that the “birth of iDemocracy” is key to rolling back the state:

“The West’s Big Government model is bust, things are going to have to change. It is on the cusp of dramatic changes driven by the failure of her elites, technology and maths. At the precise moment Big Government becomes unaffordable, the internet revolution makes it possible to do without it. Be optimistic. We are going to be able to manage without government – and thrive. The old political and economic order is about to give way to something vastly better.”

Well that prediction is a step closer to coming true today as the Speaker announces a Commission on Digital Democracy, with the aim of “creating a Parliament version 2.0″. It will report in 2015, Parliament’s 750th birthday, looking at how countries such as Estonia have enhanced democracy through internet voting and citizen engagement in parliamentary activity. Given that it was Carswell who knifed the last Speaker, could Bercow be trying to keep him sweet as knives are sharpened?

Tony McNulty Destroys His Career, Again
Ed Loyalists Smear Critic

Parliamentary history made at today’s PMQs, with Dave reading out the live tweets of a former Labour minister, who lost his seat in the wake of the expenses scandal:

A note was passed in the middle of the session from a sharp eyed backbench MP. Presumably a big glass of claret this lunchtime for Cameron’s new PPS Gavin Williamson for that little hit.

Immediately Ed’s outriders kicked off. Here is what the Labour leader’s former Chief of Staff had to say:

Pure class.

Ralph Miliband on the English…

“The Englishman is a rabid nationalist. They are perhaps the most nationalist people in the world.”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
