Osborne Camp Responds

Not for the last time, Boris has overshadowed the Osborne camp. Poor Sajid Javid was giving a speech on the economy at the very moment Boris stole the headlines. When asked by Guido, Saj declined to be drawn on whether he would back Boris for leader in a post-Dave age, though did say he had already sent the Mayor a text:

“All that Boris has said is that he’s going to stand for election and that’s great news.”

Almost as if the Chancellor’s close ally has a dog in the fight…

Hush Luvvies

Guido understands that Sajid Javid is off this week to the government art collection to decorate DCMS, but there is already good news for arts luvvies who have been sounding off about the new supposedly “philistine” Culture Secretary’s credentials.

The hippies will be pleased to know that virtually the first thing that the newly promoted Secretary of State did upon entering the Culture Ministry last week was hang a painting he owns in his office.

Of Maggie.

Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
