Better Together

The body language was wonderful at this morning’s joint appearance between Darling and the former Prime Mentalist:

Did someone say ‘forces of hell’?

One for Ed’s team to sniff out.

Parliament Clap Map: Watson’s Constituency Top for Chlamydia

Guido has always thought Tom Watson was an irritating tw*t, but now new figures released by the government provide the stats to back it up. The Department of Heath has surveyed 16 to 24 year olds across the country and found the place* with the highest rate of chlamydia is Sandwell, which lies in Watson’s West Bromwich East constituency. Itching their way into second place is Richard Fuller’s Bedford, and you’ll have to beware the crabs at the seaside in Gordon Marsden’s Blackpool. David Lammy down in Haringey is third, with Justin Tomlinson’s Swindon taking fifth place. Big clap for the winner…

Brown UKIP Attack Attempts to Rewrite History

Unionists can pack up and go home: the Prime Mentalist has surfaced up in Scotland to launch Labour’s anti-independence campaign. McMental reckons he has worked out how to win round freedom fighters north of the border, laying into the party that has just won its first MEP in the country. Gordon told United With Labour this morning:

“I detest the politics of UKIP.”

That would be the same Gordon Brown who famously promised “British jobs for British workers”, a slogan deemed too politically incorrect for UKIP to copy. The same Gordon Brown who adopted the BNP’s “Gulags for slags” policy at Labour’s 2009 party conference.

He used to get up to far worse than what he is claiming to detest today…

Axelrod Can’t Even Spell Miliband

Was it revenge for calling him Alexrod? At least he didn’t call him David.

 UPDATE: He’s also following the wrong Miliband Twitter account:

Presumably that means Brand will be giving up his:

Perhaps he could donate it all to foodbanks instead? Hypocrites of the world, unite…

Bigmouth Strikes Again: Watson’s Smiths Blunder

Ah Tom Watson. Ranting about the “Etonions” trying to “appropriate all the symbols of working-class culture from the 1980s”, Tommy builds to a crescendo of class war bilge over at Comment is Free:

“I understand why Cameron once wanted his photo taken outside Salford Boys Club, and take pleasure from the fact he will never be able to speak for the Adrian Moles of this world.”

Rather embarrassing then that the Guardian were forced to correct Watson’s attack – he got the location of The Smiths infamous album sleeve shoot wrong. That would be Salford Lads Club, as any true fan would know:

When you’re going to have a go at someone for pretending to be a music fan, it’s best to actually know what you are talking about. Tommy take a bow…

Jack Warner was Doomed

He was doomed…

Free Coffee for Labour’s Mr Bean

Goofy shadow communities minister Andy Sawford became a laughing stock after demanding Waitrose stop handing out free coffees to their loyal customers. You have to wonder about the motives of an MP backed by a rival supermarket group, though Sawford might just want the public to pay for their brew. That has not stopped him from getting his own free fill though – charging the taxpayer £22 in expenses for – you guessed it – a tin of coffee. No Costa living crisis for Andy…

Gyles Brandreth writes in his memoirs:

“Sunday, May 10, 1998

Early start: appearing on Breakfast With Frost, to be broadcast from 11 Downing Street. The Chancellor [Gordon Brown] is grouchily amiable, but so earnest — and still biting his fingernails to the quick.

After the show, he took us upstairs to his flat. He lives above No 10, while Blair and family are in the No 11 duplex, which is bigger and more like a proper house.

I was intrigued that, when he took us into his bedroom, the Chancellor rather ostentatiously opened the built-in wardrobes, as if he wanted us to see the women’s frocks that were hanging in there.

They looked quite large, but I don’t think they belong to Gordon. I assume they belong to his girlfriend [Sarah Macaulay, who he later married].

I presume he was keen for us to know that he has one — and that she’s not a ‘beard’. I don’t think he does anything without calculation.”



The British media are Hunts says:

Now the SNP know how UKIP voters feel all the time.
