Crick Does Huhne Tonight

“Michael Crick is in reception” may be the five words politicians most fear, but Camp Huhne are putting a brave face on it. Crick has ruined a few politicians in his time and Huhne is his next target. Guido called Huhne HQ (like a real journalist, not a blogger) and got an answerphone (like a house, not a political HQ). So Guido called the mobile of Huzzey the Huhney Monster and spinmeister for the man.

“Michael Crick is turning your man over on Newsnight tonight, what is your line?” “The narrative” he explained, is that it is just like when Cameron had to hold the line about drugs use, Huhne will show strength in adversity. “But isn’t Crick going to say that he fiddled his Euro-parliament expenses?”

Quote of the Day

Paul Goodman as sagacious as ever on Arron’s entryism…

“… one must watch for former UKIP donors and a very few left-of-Party-centre MPs propping each other up, like drunks at the end of a pub crawl. It suits the former to claim the power to organise a programme of mass infiltration. It suits the latter to react by complaining about extremist entryism. The rest of us should keep a cool head.”
