Duncan: I’m the Only Gay in the Village Shadow Cabinet

Guido is a fan of Alan Duncan, his blunt diagnosis of the Tory party’s troubles strikes me as correct. He is also correct to identify the siren call of Liam Fox as a problem – be in no doubt that he was referring to Fox’s supporters and the Cornerstone crowd of paleo-Conservatives in his speech. Neo-con, Christian conservativism, even in Tim Montgomerie’s mild mannered form, will not cross the Atlantic successfully. The hope that the Tories can build a coalition of support around Christian values is frankly misplaced. In any event, Guido thinks religion belongs to the private sphere, it should not be part of the remit of government. Religiously inspired laws area bad thing – or my name is not Guido Fawkes.

The mudslinging has begun, not vicious, but a tad snide. Ken is a merchant of death to the third world says Fox, oooh says the Clarke camp, Fox enjoyed the hospitality of Imperial Tobacco at Wimbledon, supping champagne from the profits of tobacco. They also whisper about Fox’s support from drug companies and the healthcare industry.

Jeremy Corbyn on Big Ben Bong Ban

“… if we have to miss Big Ben in reality for a while so that work can be done, well, that’s something we have to go through. It’s not a national disaster or catastrophe.”
