The Ides of May

Ed Miliband just cursed May ever becoming the leader of the Conservative Party by saying he was “looking forward to facing her” when the Tories “are in opposition.” It was an unusually well delivered scripted joke from Ed and one that Hammond handled slightly better…

PMQs Proves Dave and Ed Never Miss Guido

This week’s PMQs was enjoyed greatly in the Guy Newsroom, with both the Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition referencing our stories. Ed revealed himself as an avid reader of Guido’s new Sun column, bashing the PM for auctioning a portrait of himself for £100,000 at a Tory fundraiser. Here is how Guido revealed it on Sunday:

“When Cameron gave his tough European referendum speech Tory HQ treasurers were delighted to see a flood of donations come into the coffers. The tough EU stance goes down well with true blue donors, this week one of them bid £100,000 at a fundraiser for a portrait of the PM.”

Then Dave hit back by mocking Ed’s “major speech” tomorrow, noting that it will contain no new policy announcements. Yesterday Guido was leaked Labour foghorn Christine Quigley’s email admitting that “It won’t have any new policies in it”, despite being dutifully trailed by the Staggers as one to watch. It all got too much for one Page 3-lover, as the green-eyed monster struck:

Not a bad response from the PM to Galloway either:

Hodge the Dodge: Satire is Dead

Quote of the Day

David Cowling, the BBC’s head of political research, in an internal memo…

“It seems to me that the London bubble has to burst if there is to be any prospect of addressing the issues that have brought us to our current situation. There are many millions of people in the UK who do not enthuse about diversity and do not embrace metropolitan values yet do not consider themselves lesser human beings for all that. Until their values and opinions are acknowledged and respected, rather than ignored and despised, our present discord will persist. Because these discontents run very wide and very deep and the metropolitan political class, confronted by them, seems completely bewildered and at a loss about how to respond (“who are these ghastly people and where do they come from?” doesn’t really hack it). The 2016 EU referendum has witnessed the cashing in of some very bitter bankable grudges but I believe that, throughout this 2016 campaign, Europe has been the shadow not the substance.”
