When Front Pages Go Wrong

Spare a thought for the Daily Star today. They have splashed on the “shock secret love children” of Coronation Street actor Charlie Condou, sensationally revealing that he “secretly fathered two children with a straight girl pal”. Just the one problem. Unfortunately Condou’s kids were less than secret, he wrote a column devoted to them in the Guardian for a year.

In their defence, it’s not like anyone would have read it…

Not the First Boobs Alex Aiken Has Handled
Guido’s Sunday Column Now Online

The Prime Minister might be cutting child benefit for hard-working families up and down the country, but that hasn’t stopped him showing off about his £3,500 for a Savile Row suit to fashionistas. However Guido’s favourite story from his Daily Star Sunday column, that involved Whitehall’s newest spinner:

star“THE Tories were against political appointments to the Civil Service until they got into government. But now Alex Aiken, the party’s former head of news under William Hague, is taking over as executive director of government communications – one of the most powerful spin jobs in Whitehall. A decade ago Aiken was a Tory HQ staffer when he was famously spotted leaving a Commons bar with topless model Jo Guest, inset, after a marathon drinking session. Downing Street will be hoping Aiken can keep abreast of the news and spin the Government out of trouble, which means it’s not the last time he will be handling big boobs.”

If you had picked up your copy yesterday you would also have the latest on legendary luncher Lord Strathclyde, how Dave “lost the room” while briefing Tory MPs on 2015 election strategy, and why James Landale caused a stir when he got the news about Andrew Marr. Guido’s column is now online here

Prezza, Parties, and Sally on the Sauce
Daily Star Sunday Column Now Online

If you had picked up your copy of the Daily Star Sunday yesterday you would already know that:

  • The PM has organised his Lobby drinks to clash with Ed Balls’ long-scheduled shindig. Coincidence? Meanwhile Nick Clegg’s Christmas drinks at Prezza’s old place seemed dull in comparison to George Osborne’s Gangnam Style antics.
  • Sally Bercow is officially back on the sauce, with a potential £50,000 bill due to Lord McAlpine who can blame her?
  • Louise Mensch has taken up weight-lifting, “to give her upper body strength to match the lower body strength she gets from jogging”. Well she needs something to pass the time.

Tony Blair threatens Ed:

“If you had a strong political lead that was combining the politics of aspiration with the politics of compassion, I still think that’s where you could get a substantial majority…  If I ever do an interview on [the state of the Labour Party], it will have to be at length…”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
