Harman Trying to Stitch Up Seats, Again

Harriet Harman is trying to stitch up a seat for a millionaire comedian’s daughter As Guido revealed in his Sun on Sunday column, Harman has been sniffing around for a seat for her old aide Mabel McKeown, the daughter of Tracy Ullman, who amassed a £75 million fortune as her show brought the world The Simpsons. Less-than-local candidate Mabel who was born in LA, has not had much electoral success so far. She lost out for a local council and when she stood for the London Assembly. She will be hoping she is more successful than the politician her mother most famously backed in a pop video: Neil Kinnock.

Whatsa Matter EU?
Labour Euro Candidates Are Failed Italian Politicians

Six-figure salaries, generous expenses and first class seats on the gravy train to Brussels, no wonder there were hundreds of applicants to become Labour candidates for the European Parliament. As Guido revealed in yesterday’s Sun column, two of their London candidates are Ivana Bartoletti, who in 2007 was elected to the Italian parliament in Rome, and Andrea Biondi, an unsuccessful candidate for the Italian parliament in January. His campaign website is still in Italian and he has yet to replace the Italian socialist party logo with the Labour Party’s logo.

Ed says he wants more ordinary working class candidates, so it seems odd that Labour wants to send two academic Italian political insiders to represent London’s interests in Brussels. Couldn’t they find any Brits good enough to do the job?

Anti-Page 3 HuffPo’s Top Story is Topless Model Photo

The sideboob connoisseurs over at HuffPoUK have been in strident form railing against Page 3 this week. HuffPo have been pushing the self-righteous ‘No More Page 3′ campaign, arguing “let’s keep top shelf material on the top shelf”, rounding up girl guides to join the cause and even linking Page 3 to sexual violence. Once again, their editorial moralising doesn’t extend to their quest for traffic. HuffPo’s top story this morning was headlined “Abbey Clancy Poses Naked For Rankin in Hunger Magazine (PICTURES)”, naturally complete with topless photos which Guido has censored as this is a family blog. They also signed up a new contributor today: Peter Stringfellow.

Balls Out in 2015

A name to remember for the run-up to a big 2015 dogfight: the Tories have selected Andrea Jenkyns to take on Ed Balls in Morley and Outwood. The seat was almost the scene of the biggest upset of 2010. Expect Jenkyns’ working class striver credentials to be pushed from now until election day, Jenkyns is a local, comp-educated candidate who runs her own business. Conveniently she says fixing the broken welfare system is her main priority. Balls has a majority of 1,101…

Fifty Shades of Bozier

bozier-fiction

What would you do if your sexual habits had landed you under a police investigation and seen your professional career crumble? Write a sex novel obviously.

Well you would if you were Luke Bozier, who previously wrote online fiction about his nine inch penis. The first chapter of his racy novel the Adventures of Damian Gold is now online and though most of it is hardly suitable for a family blog, Guido thought he would share one amorous encounter from the scene set in a Starbucks toilets:

“Knock. Knock. Knock … Knock. ‘Come in, quickly.’ ‘How … romantic.’ At this I push Natasha against the wall, into the corner of the bathroom. Her back is to the wall, my hand is gripping her chin and jaw. ‘How about you shut up for five minutes?’ ‘Ok, I…’ ‘Shut. Up.’ Despite her annoying nature, there is something animal about having sex with this powerful woman. My body responds to her. I hate her but I want her. Still gripping her face, my teeth clench her bottom lip. My right hand is finding its way up her inner thigh, my forefinger tip-toeing past her garter belt, La Perla no doubt.”

Just who could this mysterious powerful lady with the “quaffed” hair and stylist clothes be? Or should that be coiffed?
