Police Questioned By Sun Journalist

The Sun’s royal editor Duncan Larcombe turns the tables after 13 journalists were cleared this afternoon:

The Director of Public Prosecutions responsible for the disastrous Operation Elveden charges was one Keir Starmer. Now Labour’s parliamentary candidate for Holborn…

Ed Miliband: What Is Vice?

Asked a question about patronising young voters at Labour’s ‘Youth Manifesto’ launch, Ed successfully managed to patronise young voters. Here is his exchange with former Telegraph investigations reporter Ben Bryant, now at Vice News:

BB: “Hello, Ben Bryant from Vice News”

EM: “From where?”

BB: “Vice News.”

EM:Oh right. What does Vice News do?”

BB: “We make films, we write stories.”

EM: “Right.”

BB: “So one of the criticisms of this election campaign has been how controlled it is. You yourself have only done one walkabout with voters so far. Don’t you think that all of this stage management bullsh*t is particularly alienating young people?”

EM: “I don’t think you count as stage managed, do you Ben?”

No wonder they were keeping him away from questions…

Confirmed: Desmond Gives a Million to UKIP

As Guido reported earlier, and the Express have now confirmed in an ‘exclusive’, Richard Desmond has opened his chequebook and donated a million pounds to UKIP. He says:

“I firmly believe in Ukip. It’s a party for good, ordinary British people. It is not run by elitists. They are struggling to have a voice. They do not have a massive party machine or highly paid public relations people. They are human; they are not perfect and they do not pretend to be. But what they believe in is the best for the British people. They are the sort of people who will stand up for people who are struggling.

I don’t believe Cameron has delivered on his promises. I don’t want to be a member of a club. As Groucho Marx said, I don’t want to join any club that would have me as a member. I always have challenged the establishment and I want to continue to challenge it. I’m giving this money because I believe….as Emerson, Lake and Palmer might put it… Ukip’s political outlook is a ‘fanare for the common man. I want to back our customers, Daily Express readers, who believe in many of Ukip’s common-sense policies on the EU and immigration and taxation. That is why I am putting my hand in my pocket; it is for my customers, my readers. I hope by doing this, it will encourage more people to do the same. 

I want them to stand up like me and be counted. I believe there are still people out there who are frightened to stand up for something new and I hope they will follow my example.”

You read it here first…

Understand the donation came as a surprise to UKIP. Senior staffers, as well as press officers did not know it was coming when Guido put it to them three hours ago. Their laughs of ‘no way’ were genuine…

RUMOUR: Dirty Desmond ‘About to Donate UKIP a Million’

Farage is apparently expected at Express Newspapers’ offices at some point today and Richard Desmond’s deputy Lord Stevens was spotted in Thanet with the UKIP leader on Tuesday.

Usually reliable sources suggest Desmond is about to drop a cool million on the party.

And presumably the endorsement of his publications…

Quote of the Day

Labour candidate Clive Lewis tells the Staggers:

“I mean, in the multiverse there’s still three universes in a hundred where there’s a Green MP in Norwich, so anything could happen. I could be caught with my pants down behind a goat with Ed Miliband at the other end – well, hopefully that won’t happen.”
