WATCH: “Are You Going to Resign, Maria Miller?”

Great stuff from Sky’s Sophy Ridge, who has spent the day standing outside Number 10 shouting at Cabinet ministers. Miller’s face…

Boulton and Co?

Swiftly deleted.  It was sent via a text message according to the Twitter meta-data.

Well Mrs Fawkes would kill Guido if that wasn’t for her…

MediaGuido hears he wasn’t the only Sky business presenter to go for the job, Dharshini David misses out this time round.

Who will be next to jump ship?

Gary Gibbon’s Scoop That Never Was

Not the best day for Sky News politcal editor wannabe Garry Gibbon. Channel 4′s news breaker extraordinaire had the riveting scoop of the day, revealing on his blog the insider details of the reforms going through Labour’s NEC. The big exclusive told us that the unions would nod it through, though Blairites are worried about the new higher nominations threshold for leadership candidates. A story which we had all read at breakfast time on LabourList. Gary noticed that too later, and quietly snuck into the piece a little addendum.

“I’ve just seen LabourList has already written this all up. But as I’d written the above, thought I’d share it anyway.”

Scoop!

Goodbye Glen Oglaza

Goodbyes are flooding in to one of the nicest blokes in politics, seasoned telly hack Glen Oglaza, who is leaving SkyNews today.

Glen says he is “open to interesting well-paid offers”, and that “the time is right” to move on.

Another favourite face from Sky gone.

So Long Sky’s Peter Spencer

A remarkably well turned out figure has been conspicuously absent from TV screens recently. Sad news today that Peter Spencer, the flamboyant and eccentric Westminster correspondent for Sky News at weekends, has retired. Guido has fond memories of waiting to go on air and being entertained with a tune on the guitar off camera. Millbank won’t be the same without the bright pink BMW parked outside the studios. A loss!

Francis Elliot reports on No. 10 strategy meetings:

“When discussion veers to subjects that Mr Crosby thinks of concern only to the political and journalistic classes, he treats the offender as a pub bore with a tart request to “pass the beer nuts, mate”.”



Alexrod says:

It’s money innit.
