WATCH: Grand Mufti-Diver Sex Tape

The grand mufti of Kyrgyzstan, the highest Islamic authority in the country, has quit after a sex tape in which he stars was leaked online. Fun-loving cleric Rakhmatulla-Hajji Egemberdiev defended himself by arguing the woman in the video was simply his second wife. Very niiiice!

Hollande’s Triple Dip With French Actress

Ooh la la! François Hollande is refusing to deny that he has been bonking glamorous French actress Julie Gayet. Tabloid mag Closer has photos of the pair routinely arriving separately at a Paris flat in the evening before a chauffeur delivers croissants on a motorbike in the morning. Hollande says the revelations are an “attack on the right to privacy”. Which either means it’s true or he put it out there himself to boost his ratings.

Either way, at least we can guarantee this is a policy Miliband won’t be copying…

Wonk Watch: IEA’s Turn

It’s basically Wonk Transfer Deadline Week with more movements announced this afternoon. Ryan Bourne, who has given the CPS its recent oomph, jumps to the Institute of Economic Affairs to be their new Head of Public Policy. Glamorous Steph Lis (above left) is promoted to Head of Comms, replacing PX-bound Ruth Porter. The lovely Christiana Hambro (above right) will be their new Head of External Relations. Further bolstering Mark Littlewood’s harem of twenty-something brainboxes…

Coke-Snorting Co-op Boss’ Night With Chuka

Rev Flowers has been nicked as Labour’s Co-op embarrassment makes the front pages once again this morning. By far Guido’s favourite story of the day however is this little gem found by the Sun, who have got hold of Facebook messages written by Flowers in which he lusts over a certain party loving Labour frontbencher:

Thank god he didn’t favourite anything on Twitter…

Foreign Office SpAd in Racy Photo Investigation

In Serbia sadly. But Vanja Hadzovic, an adviser in the Serbian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, has caused a stir after racy photos of her appeared online: “There are those both within and outside Serbia who might think these pictures are not suitable for a woman who is hoping to excel at diplomacy,” said one foreign ministry source to the Mail.

Guido disagrees.

Excellent diplomatic skills on display.

A Very Elegant, Soft Hand in the Till

As another round of expense receipts are published a special prize goes to Tory MP Penny Mordaunt, who claimed £4.37 for some Dove hand cream. Taxpayer-funded moisturising is creative even by their standards…

Sham Pain

“It was hard to stomach David Cameron preaching austerity from a golden throne” writes Guardian contributor Ruth Hardy, who waited tables at the Lord Mayor’s banquet on Monday. Guido commends Ruth for her use of cliché; rolling off all the old classics about “the cuts”, it being “like a scene from Downton Abbey”, and not forgetting the requisite moan about a “champagne reception”. Apparently not a fan of the stuff, she slams Dave for “the idiocy of calling for cuts while wearing a white tie”, somewhat bravely asking “has the man never heard of Twitter?” Well, talking of Twitter, here is a picture Ruth tweeted of herself drinking champagne in what could be “a scene from Downton Abbey”:

Has she “never heard of Twitter”?

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”



Alexrod says:

It’s money innit.
