Another Broken LibDem Promise

During the election campaign Danny Alexander claimed that he would be leaving a reply to Liam Byrne in the drawer of the desk of the Chief Secretary to the Treasury. It wasn’t very witty:

Well sadly it seems he’s broken that promise. Incoming Chief Secretary Greg Hands has found the drawer empty:

Is nothing sacred?

Labour Shuts Up Shop

labour vacancies

The leaderless Labour Party’s website’s jobs page is not quite telling the truth. No word yet on how long they will take to fill the two vacant roles at the top of the party…

Witness: Milibands Going to Ibiza

Apparently Miliband is on his way to Ibiza:

Heading out for the opening parties?

The big question being: is he staying at Chuka’s place

Stewart ‘Truth Bullets’ Jackson’s Acceptance Speech

You probably missed this at the time, but Tory MP Stewart Jackson’s acceptance speech in Peterborough is well worth a watch. Even after they lost a very dirty campaign, the Labour activists at the count were booing:

‘It’s hard to be gracious’ after what they put me through he later told the BBC.

Young, Bald Leadership Contender Unveils New Blonde Girlfriend

Where have we seen this before?

hague-fion

But is Chuka ready? Like Hague, is he going for it too early? 5 years as opposition leader is a very long time…

As Guido reports in the Sun today, Umunna has plenty of options available, with some allies urging him to run for Mayor of London rather than leader. From City Hall he can build a power-base, gain executive experience and sweep back as leader after the referendum. Or will his vanity and ambition for the top job blind him to the long game?

How to Vote, Urdu Style

labour leaflet

Surely this patronising Labour leaflet, telling non-English speaking voters how to vote can’t be real? Is there any part of biraderi politics that Labour doesn’t want to emulate

Liam Byrne in Office, Out of Power

Liam Byrne’s letter has been an ever present prop in this election, wheeled out by David Cameron at every opportunity. But what of the man himself? Byrne used to be a Labour broadcast regular, sent out to mop up, but during this campaign he was keeping a very low profile. Guido spotted him briefly addressing the controversial segregated Labour rally, but apart from that…

Well it turns out he is hiding at his desk. A co-conspirator writes:

“Just rang his office to ask about sex segregation. Blow me down, the man himself picked up the phone. Referred me to an article in the Birmingham Mail and put the phone down.”

From the cabinet position of Chief Secretary, to answering his own phone, while lurking in his office at the peak of an election campaign to hide from the media. Ouch…

Labour Officially Defend Segregated Rally

A Labour spokesman speaks, finally:

“Labour fully supports gender equality in all areas of society and all cultures. Equally, we support those who are breaking down barriers where inequality remains. There was no forced segregation. Speakers at the event

Balls Blows It: Another 2010 Video Emerges to Ruin Labour’s ‘Squatting’ Spin

New video has emerged that further weakens Labour’s latest line that the PM should leave Downing Street immediately if he has not achieved a majority. On election night in 2010, Ed Balls was very clear about our constitutional position: the […]

Anagram of ‘Sturgeon and Miliband’ is ‘Subordinating Man, Led’

The Tories have missed a trick in the campaign posters.

There are some brilliant – and topical – anagrams of ‘STURGEON AND MILIBAND’.

Like ‘SUBORDINATING MAN, LED’.

Or ‘BUILDING A MONSTER’…[…]

No Backing for Bad Boy Baldwin

One important face was missing from the backstage ‘spin room’ at last Thursday leaders’ Question Time encounter: Ed Miliband’s controversial media henchman Tom Baldwin.

In the last year Baldwin has been criticised for comparing a tax row to the death […]

Quote of the Day

Former Miliband guru Arnie Graf reveals Labour’s disconnect with the working class:

“On one of my trips to the U.K. in the autumn of 2013, I bumped into one of Ed’s strategists in Portcullis House. He asked me if I was assisting the staff on Ed’s trip that was to take place in a few days to one of the regions. I told him that I did not have knowledge of his planned trip.

He told me that Ed was going to give a talk at the region’s annual fund raising dinner and that prior to the dinner he had invited the media to join him at a local coffee shop to listen to a conversation he planned to have with a minimum wage worker. The point of the conversation was to show how difficult it was for a minimum wage worker to get on in life.

There was only one problem. No one had been able to locate a minimum wage worker for Ed to talk with.”
