Some are speculating that the 29 year-old Julia Goldsworthy might run as a marker for the future. So after arguing for 18 months that age (he was 66) and experience (of sprinting) trumped looks and charisma, they could switch to a photogenic reality TV show contestant as leader – Julia is 40/1 on Betfair. Excellent idea, it couldn’t be any worse…
UPDATE : A co-conspirator says she has told her local rag she definitely won’t be running. Boo.
UPDATE II : John Hemming, who has confirmed he wants to run, is a mere 180 /1 on Betfair. He tells Guido he expects to get 5 nominations already!
UPDATE III : Vince Cable has ruled himself out this morning. Telling Nick Robinson that given “the current irrational prejudice about age… an older candidate is not electable”. Rationally, the 64 year-old slaphead is almost indistinguishable from Ming to voters.
“We are beautiful, nude, proud. We are true and sincere, body and soul. This is not pornography, there is nothing to see in terms of sex, our faces are intelligent, concerned, proud. We do not have our mouths open nor our eyes closed… All that interests us is the future, the position of women in society. We will open the archives of the former secret communist agents, we will make known their corrupt affairs,” says party president Manuela Gretkowska. Naked anti-communism? Gets Guido’s vote…

He mocks them. Guido wants to remind you that it is Recess Monkey who during the Labour deputy elections directed an eight part interview with Hilary and Tony Benn waffling in semi-darkness into a video camera controlled by a Parkinson’s sufferer. (Surprisingly Hilary didn’t win the leadership election.)
Like the Monkey, Guido too wants to know, who are the girls?
*According to a recent ICM survey 5 times as many MPs read Guido as Recess Monkey.
She can strip off various costumes including traditional “French Maid, Schoolgirl, Sexy Nurse, Headmistress, Devil Lady, Catwoman, Jungle Jane, Sexy Secretary, Miss Whiplash, Cowgirl, Miss Santa, Sexy Horseriding lady, Vampiress, Witch, Army Girl, Bunny Girl, Sexy Gypsy Lady etc.”
Fantastic. Her website informs us that she is a talented pole dancer as well. But her talent does not end there, she also talks dirty for £1.50 a minute to phone callers, “Proportional representation, prepare for government, fancy a coalition big boy?” Those are the sort of words that usually bring a smile to LibDem’s faces, Guido suspects that the language is very, very different in this case.
How have her fellow LibDem councillors reacted to the news? Illiberally – they have resigned in disgust.

François had four children with Ségolène Royal (pictured left), the losing French Socialist Presidential candidate. He is having an affair with TV8′s political reporter, Valerie Trierweiler (pictured right). When announcing their split the elegant Ségolène said that now “he was free to enjoy his romantic life alone”.
France has strict privacy laws of the kind that some of our politicians would love to have over here. Blogs now make those laws almost impossible to enforce. Technological progress.

The Sun reports her “coke-fuelled lesbian romp in front of pals at a party”. They picture the posh 19-year-old looking wasted next to a toilet. You get the hint.
Partygoers were apparently stunned as she stripped another girl. “Emily then fondled her boobs before disappearing into a bedroom with her for the night… She also performed crude acts on lads at the bash and did a raunchy lapdance for one … One partygoer said: ‘We were at this girl’s house outside Bristol last April and I saw Emily sniffing coke in the kitchen.’”
Why doesn’t Guido get to go to parties like this any more?
