2009 Tory Manifesto to be Orange

On reflection Guido thinks its tactical genius to canvass liberals for support and destabilise Charlie at the same time. With Charlie gone by spring say, the LibDems will be plunged into civil war with the choice of Menzies Campbell, their answer to Malcolm Rifkind, Mark Oaten their answer to Basher Davis or Simon Hughes, the darling of the LibDem’s backroom boys. Any of the above will probably be less attractive to the voters than the ginger drinker. Cheers Cameron!

Quote of the Day

Writing in this week’s Spectator Diary, the former Chancellor and Evening Standard editor attempted to encapsulate how Boris operates…

“My children have the measure of our prime minister. A couple of years ago, my son and I went for a lovely Sunday lunch at his house in Oxfordshire — where he has a Kalashnikov mounted on the wall. Boris suggested we play a game. A tug of war, but with a difference. The rope is tied around your waist and the contest takes place across a swimming pool. If you lose you end up in the water, fully clothed.

That’s Johnson for you: fun, inventive but ruthless. I suspect his brother Jo had one ducking too many.”
