Paintball Aftermath

The Xmas Paintball Match united the politicians from Labour and the Tories against the anti-politicians from the Taxpayers’ Alliance, Big Brother Watch and Guy News on the other side.  Guido is happy to report that the politicians took an awful beating, 4 -1 was the thrashing.  The games were characterised by blatant cheating and vicousness, particularly from the women.  Sam Coates (that is his back pictured in the middle) fought valiantly for the politicians but he was no match for Emily Nomates.  The aggressive attacking from Mark Wallace of the Taxpayers’ Alliance and Alex Deane from Big Brother Watch meant that the politicians were repeatedly overwhelmed.   Personal thanks to Jessica Asato from Progress for firing vertically downwards onto Guido’s head and Brittany Greer for war crimes.  Alex Smith made it particularly easy for our team to find him by wearing a white LabourList t-shirt for the first half of the night.  Guido can confirm that Alex and MessageSpace’s Jag Singh squeal like babies when pain is inflicted on them…

Thanks to MessageSpace for sponsoring the night/beer and Domino’s for the pizza.  It is two for one on Tuesdays…

#BlogWars ’09

Guido is off to physically wage war tonight on politicians, we’ll find out if Labour are “fighters and believers”, if the Tories “will fight and Britain will win”The Guy News team will be impartially shooting at both sides, as always…

There has been a bit of banter and sledging on Twitter in advance (hashtag tonight is #blogwars).  Pictured above: Guido looking camp in Kampuchea with the Khmer Bleu, LabourList’s Alex Smith still searching for WMDs, ToryBear looking for @BevaniteEllie, CCHQ’s Sam Coates practising his sharp shooting and Brittany Greer demonstrating why you don’t mess with Texas.

Thanks to Jag Singh (pictured right) at MessageSpace for organising the match.  Do his Labour Party colleagues know that the former Hillary ’08 staffer is a paid up member of the NRA?  Splat!

Five Hours Until the #BlogWars Begin

Tonight sees the logical extension of online political warfare.  Teams from CCHQ, Labour, GuyNews.TV and assorted political campaigns are being extraordinarily rendered into the back of black vans with darkened windows to an undisclosed secret location for battle.

For those who want to follow the action tonight’s hashtag is #blogwars.  See also ‘Bambi-killer’ ToryBear, Shane GreerThis is not just paintball….

*Guido extracted this old picture of him the late 80s on the frontline between freedom and Marxist dictatorship (unfortunately his freedom fighting friends are probably still classified).

LibDems Not Winning Here

This coming Monday night all over London crack teams of digital war-planners will be extraordinarily rendered into the back of black vans with darkened windows to an undisclosed secret location. With only months to go before full scale political war breaks out, digital advertising and campaigns agency MessageSpace* has, in the tradition of the trenches of the First World War, organised a frontline truce with drinks. After doing paintball battle…

Combatants from CCHQ’s MyConservatives.com and Labour’s digital teams will be fighting with leading bloggers (cough) and online campaigners from the political world. It should be fun, it could be brutal, hopefully Guido won’t be too bruised.

Despite being invited, the LibDem’s failed to muster a team…

*Yes, they sell Guido’s adverts.

David Cameron on political promiscuity…

“On May 7 you could go to bed with Nigel Farage and wake up with Ed Miliband. Not one bit of that works for me.”



cynic says:

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
