Mrs Clegg in Zara and Topshop

Every year Guido likes to bring you the most important news from the leader’s speeches at conference: the fashion. Today he can reveal that Mrs Clegg will be wearing a  Zara top with Topshop shoes.

This is to signify the strong links between Spanish design (Zara) and British high street manufacturing. Apparently.

And now you know.

Big Brother is Watching Browne
Minister Found on Google Street View

A co-conspirator emails in wondering who the red-box clutching Minister is that they found on Google Street View:

Guido wonders what Jeremy Browne was doing popping into a Paddington Hotel in the middle of the day…

UPDATE: A spokesman for civil liberties campaign group Big Brother Watch says:

“Given the comprehensive privacy-protecting processing Google has done as part of Street View, we have no idea how Guido worked out this was Jeremy Browne.”

Weiner Sexting Girl Shoots Celeb Porno

Continuing in the age old tradition of getting your kit off after being caught up in a political scandal, Sydney Leathers is not even bothering to wait until Anthony Weiner loses the Democratic primary in the race to be the next Mayor of New York. The latest girl involved in in his ongoing scandal fuelled slow motion car crash comeback has already managed to shoot a porn film:

“I’m Sydney Leathers. Anthony Weiner and I had a ‘sexting’ relationship for several months, and that came out in the press, so here I am!”

Christine Keeler, she ain’t…

Should Guido Sue Claire Perry?

Last night after Guido reported the legitimate news that anti-porn campaigner Claire Perry had been targeted by internet hackers who hosted porn on her website, the Tory MP went proper shouty crackers on Twitter.

  • She then bizarrely claimed that Guido had sponsored the hacking of her website.
  • When smears did not work, Perry then tried vague threats about calling the editor of  The Sun, despite the story appearing on the blog, for which the editor of The Sun doesn’t have any responsibility.

You can read her collected tweets here. They are without any foundation, merit or a shred of evidence to back them up. Guido suspects it is based on Perry’s dislike of the blog bringing the pushy MP back down to earth occasionally. Perry does not have a leg to stand on here, so if she does not retract the bonkers allegations, should Guido unleash his lawyers? You won’t like them when they’re angry.

So in the now fashionable manner popularised by the government the blog has decided to put the decision out to consultation to the readers. Poll closes at midday. Vote below…

No Nipples Please, We’re Her Majesty’s Telegraph

Guido was not the only one to perk up when he noticed the subtle difference between the front pages of the Telegraph’s print and iPad editions. As part of the new “digital first” strategy, it seems someone is employed to Photoshop nipples out of the print edition. Guido likes to keep you abreast of the bigger stories of the day.

Tit-Tastic Day For HuffPost UK

“The fascination with bodies, celebrity or otherwise, isn’t exactly something new, of course, and shows no sign of abating. But here’s a thought: why don’t we just stop?” Those were the noble words of HuffPost UK editor Carla Buzasi last year. Someone should tell whoever is running their picture desk today:

No doubt they’ll be writing about the evils of Page 3 this afternoon…

Len Fixes it For More Labour Candidates

Three more Unite candidates selected this weekend. Natasha Millward, one of the Unite 41, will run in Dudley South, she is also an Area Organiser for UNISON and has the backing of the GMB to complete her union hat-trick. Then there is Tulip Siddiq. The proud Unite member won a dramatic selection in Hampstead and Kilburn after a man was headbutted and police were called. The cops are busy with Unite selections at the moment.

Unite-backed trade union lawyer Jo Stevens was selected in Cardiff Central with the backing of her pal Tom Watson, who generously declared “I believe in her”. Yvette Cooper’s staffer Leonie Mathers will run in Sherwood, she has the backing of the USDAW union. Finally, Guido readers’ favourite Rowenna Davis is the candidate for Southampton Itchen. That’s probably one the Tories can cross off their target list…

It was Acceptable in the 80s

If 22-year-old Vicky Fowler beats the incumbent Tory MP Marcus Jones in Nuneaton in two years’ time, she will become the first MP to have been born in the 1990s. His majority is only 2,069 so it is not beyond the realms of possibility. Vicky defeated former BBC reporter Miriam O’Reilly for selection. By comparison Sir Peter Tapsell (b. 1930) has served the House since 1959.

Berger’s Climate Change Whopper

“David Cameron hasn’t spoken about climate change for three years” screeches the headline of Luciana Berger’s particularly weak piece for the Staggers today. Just the one problem: she is talking complete rubbish. Obviously a quick Google of “David Cameron climate change” was beyond poor old Luciana, so Guido thought he would help her out. According to They Work For You it turns out Dave has mentioned climate change 32 times in Hansard over the last three years. Hopefully Luciana will learn the lesson of getting your headline right. Rather than chasing headlines and forgetting facts…

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.”

It’s money innit.
