Remember Fiona Jones’ Indecent Proposal?

Fiona Jones, a former Labour MP, said last year that a senior Labour party politician, currently a cabinet minister, tried to seduce her by making her an age-old offer: “Do you know what I can do for you?”

Fiona Jones lost her seat in the 2001 general election. She has threatened to “blow the lid off New Labour’s female-friendly image and tell all about the astonishing sex-for-jobs culture in the Commons”.

So a former Labour party MP publicly claimed that a cabinet minister offered her promotion in return for sex. How many quietly accepted the proposition and in return were rewarded with promotion?

Four Shags (But Still Counting)

Sarah Bissett-Scott, says she had a two-year affair with Prezza twenty years ago. It did her career no harm, she stood a few years later (1992) as a Labour candidate and now she is a planning consultant. An area of lobbying where it must be handy to have shagged the Minister with the power to ultimately determine the outcome for your clients. She has a special interest in “Affordable Housing”, which falls under the remit of Prezza and is a government priority.

Her admission has provoked Prescott into whining “It is totally unacceptable for the Press to be trawling through lists of people, some of whom I hardly know, members of staff and family friends, offering large sums of money, making allegations without substance and major intrusions into their lives, which I totally reject.”

Not sure what he means by that, but think it means he doesn’t like it. Tough, looks like it is open season now, payback time for his years of hypocrisy.

Prezza Muddles Up Mistresses

There is a rumour going around in press circles that Prezza, alerted in advance by a journalist that he was going to be exposed, confessed to Pauline about the wrong mistress. He mangles the English language, so muddling up his mistresses would be no surprise.

Prezza Affair – Blow by Blow

  • “Tracey also revealed how she performed oral sex on him Monica Lewinsky-style in his Whitehall office.” “Sometimes they did it behind the desk, other times just inside the door.”
  • “The secret affair only ended in the LAST MONTH, not in 2004, as the Deputy Prime Minister claimed.”
  • Carried on having secret sex sessions with Prezza until just a few weeks ago. “Only stopped when they were rumbled.”
  • “He would grope her when she went into his office for diary meetings.”
  • Sex in the Admiralty boardroom, a government conference room. At it in his office at the Cabinet Office, at Admiralty House and at Dorneywood, his official country residence.
  • Tracey says he has had other mistresses.
  • Prezza lying when he claimed it ended two years ago.

Cherie’s Papal Protocal Gaffe

The Queen is apparently amused by Cherie’s stiff leg syndrome, which is obviously the reason she is unable to curtsey before her. Hilary Clinton, when First Lady, quite properly did not curtsey to the Queen either. Guido respects them for their republicanism. However, surely as a practising Catholic, Cherie is willing to show the proper respect to His Holiness?
Tradition requires Catholic woman to wear modest black. Pictured on the left is Queen Sophia of Spain exercising her Privilege du blanc as a Catholic monarch, a privilege conferred by the papacy on the historical Catholic monarchies, the Queens of Belgium and the Grand Duchesses of Luxembourg having been the other royalty granted the white privilege. Cherie appears to have seized for herself the privilege of Queens.

John Reid’s Hash Hush-Up

They kept it quiet for a few days, but yet another Blairite has been politically and personally humiliated. It is becoming noticeable how it always seems to be Blairite loyalists that are making the (bad) news. Almost as if it was an organised dirty tricks operation…


A little bit of Afghan hash is hardly anything to get bothered about. Guido’s good friend got 24 months for the posession of 23 grammes he brought back from Morocco, (for a first offence). So on that basis, time per grammes wise, Reid would only get a month. You know how it is, you go on holiday, backpacking in Afghanistan, or even visiting the troops, and bring back a little souvenir given to you by a local...

The excuses are:

  • it was “minuscule”, weighing less than one gram and with a street value of 85p.
  • it could have been there for up to 20 years.
  • he was not in the house at the time it was found and was said by sources to have “no idea” it was in a guest area.”
  • “hundreds” of people are said to have been in it over the years.
Mr Reid can not be accused of hypocrisy, he was the Cabinet’s most ardent opponent of a smoking ban, man.

UPDATE : Two months ago cannabis campaigner Jeffrey Ditchfield, was arrested and charged with sending drugs to defence minister John Reid. Coincidence? More here. Hat-tip : Onan

That Cook v Currie Cat-Fight

Woman’s Hour was brilliant yesterday, Edwina Currie and Margaret Cook on political affairs. Edwina revealed that besides John Major, she was at it with a kinky slob. Edwina gave some old fashioned advice to Mrs Cook. Mrs Cook did not take it well. Listen here (mp3)

Blogging Nick Robinson AutoCorrects

Nick Robinson is a reader of this blog and took the hint and has clarified his “bombshell” comments. He doesn’t link to this blog in his blog, yet quotes from it, a major breach of netiquette you might say, but Guido is forgiving. Since the Ashley Cole case the Dead Tree Press (and the broadcast media) have become nervous about referring to, or directly linking readers and listeners to writ-risky websites. Hence the vague references to “political websites” rather than Guido or Iain Dale. Journalists are actually ringing Guido up for quotes, which they then attribute to an unnamed controversial political website.
We need a better legal precedent, media lawyers are scaring media executives into restricting journalists from referring to risk taking bloggers. Hence the ridiculous situation with so-called blogs being established by the old media which don’t allow comments (Trevor) or don’t allow links to other websites (Adam Boulton). The Telegraph and the Guardian at least have proper blogs. The former is as boring as hell (comments : 0), the latter is noisier (comments : mad).

And finally, as to the question most journos have called to ask: no, lawyers have not been in touch. So go on, do it…

Prescott Plays Hypocritical Happy Families

Guido hears that Prezza would be wise to hide this weekend’s Mail on Sunday from Pauline. According to a usually reliable source, mistress #2 was approached by another tabloid newspaper about her relationship with hypocritical Prezza. She threatened to sue if they published…

Why Do Patricia Hewitt and Rosie Winterton Lie to Us?

In 1998 Labour celebrated the 50th anniversary of the creation of the NHS, it was a cause for national celebration and tax rises for all.

Such was the importance of this date that in 1998 New Labour even minted a new commemorative 50 pence piece for us to keep and treasure.

So why are these two health ministers holding a cake celebrating the 60th anniversary of the founding of the NHS 8 years later? The press release from last week accompanying this picture says “Rosie Winterton MP and Patricia Hewitt recently met in Westminster to celebrate the sixtieth anniversary of the NHS. ” If they lie at this meeting, what else will they lie about? Clearly you can’t believe a word they say.

The Search for Willie Horton

The Sunday papers are desperately searching for Britain’s Willie Horton and they have over a thousand potential possibilities.

For those who don’t know who Guido is talking about, Willie Horton was a murderer released by Michael Dukakis when he was the leftish governor of Massachusetts, he went on to rob and rape and was used by Dubya’s daddy in TV adverts for his successful campaign for the Presidency. If the press find Britain’s own Willie Horton, Clarke is finished. Bookies are not accepting bets on him going.

UPDATE : Guido mistakenly identified Indrit Krasniqi, as one of the 1,023 criminals allowed to roam free in Britain. He is to be jailed for life for murder and kidnap tomorrow at Reading Crown Court. He is a nasty piece of work, but not Britain’s Willie Horton – as many better informed comment makers pointed out to Guido.

Second Prescott Mistress

Should Guido publish the name of the other mistress?
Publish and be damned.
It is a private matter for him and Pauline.
Only if he has abused his position.
Only if she is a public figure like a politician.

Proud to be a Chameleon?

The ChameleonArmy.com was launched yesterday with a £2,000 prize fund to engage the creative minds of Britain’s conservative movement (and anyone wanting to earn a few quid). They want ideas for mini-videos and viral email campaigns that can be used “against Labour or any other enemy of conservatism”. They’re looking for humour and bite. Guido reckons they should wear this rather cool T-shirt with pride. Available here.

John Prescott “Sex God”

Jokey badges produced for the Labour Party spring conference seem strangely prescient now don’t they? According to The Mirror this morning his mistress Tracey Temple

… was rumbled by her trucker boyfriend when she began blurting out Two Jags’ name in her SLEEP.

Shocked Barrie Williams, 46, told how he heard her describe sex acts with the Deputy PM. He said: “My blood ran cold.”

Barrie went on: “I’d be woken up by Tracey’s ecstatic remarks about Prescott’s abilities between the sheets.”

Guido understands the words “big boy” were often used.

Oaten Has Been Dumped on Enough

Thumbing through my copy of Hello magazine my attention is drawn to Belinda Oaten’s interview. My first thought is why? Then, how much?

Guido thinks it was inadvisable, the Oatens need to put all that behind them and move forward in private not on the pages of Hello.

Guido will not be making any tasteless jokes at Mark Oaten’s expense.

Guido’s Advice to Newbie Blogger

Chatted with bloggers last night at the Adam Smith Institute’s Dead Trees and Pyjama Kids bash. Gave some advice to newbie blogger Trevor, explained to him that proper bloggers have comments and links. “Links?” he asked quizically. Guido thinks Trevor could probably make a success of it, forinstance he seemed pretty well informed about Prescott’s mistresses. Did tell him that now he is blogging, my plan was to set up a mass market tabloid with tits. It is only fair.Trev's Blog
Afterwards Tim Worstall bought a round for everyone, Guido ungratefully said “that will give you enough material for a new book” and got bitch-slapped down by the man single-handedly leading the seventies fashion revival. All in all, the creme de la creme of the British blogging world were there to hear the Fink outline his fears for the Dead Tree Slaughterers. Mike Smithson of politicalbetting.com swapped tips with Tim Montgomerie of ConservativeHome.com whilst Perry de Havilland of Samizdata and Brian Micklethwait talked of podcasts and armed insurrection. Zack Exley’s nightmares were gathered in that room.

C’mon Nick, What Bombshell?

Nick Robinson blogs that Prescott’s mistress was a bombshell to his family and colleagues. Bullshit Nick. It was hardly a bombshell to the lobby or his colleagues. Trevor Kavanagh admits he knew of Prezza’s serial adultery, half the less connected Westminster village from the lowliest research assistant and up knew.

If the political editor of the BBC finds this a bombshell, he is either being disingenuous or is in the wrong job.

The Whole Truth and Nothing But…

Named Day Written question to: Prime Minister for answer on 02/05/2006:

To ask the Prime Minister how many members of his private office have been interviewed by the Metropolitan Police Specialist Crimes Directorate in connection with investigations relating to the Honours (Prevention of Abuses) Act 1925 and will he make a statement?

The quietly industrious Stewart Jackson MP is asking interesting questions, Growling Chris Grayling and Nigel Evans also keep at it. The PM just says “no running commentary”. What he means is “no one is on the run”, yet.

Dave the Chameleon II is Available!

It is mostly a repeat. It also again re-inforces the “Change” meme that is Cameron’s central message. Half of it could have been produced by CCHQ. Exactly as Guido predicted in February.

Go here to watch.

UPDATE : Look out Labour, The Chameleon Army is online and on the march.
