That Godfather and Fairy Godmother Conspiracy

Somebody should put the conspiracy-moonbats who are frothing pointlessly about the coming 18DoughtyStreet attack advert aimed at Livingstone out of their misery. They think it is some kind of cunning Tory plan to assist Nick Boles in replacing Ken. If there is one thing Tim Montgomerie wants almost as much as he wants to get rid of the current Mayor of London, it is to make sure that the next Mayor of London is not Nick Boles, the Cameroonie ultra.

For those who don’t understand the internal dynamics of Conservative politics, it would be like Neal Lawson (Compass) backing Stephen Twigg (Progress). Neal and Stephen are always polite to each other, but have very different factional objectives, it is the same with Tim (ConservativeHome) and Nick (Policy Exchange).

Tim Montgomerie will probably back Victoria Borwick, who coincidentally, has hired Nick Wood to spin for her. Nick Wood also advises Cornerstone and is Tim Montgomerie’s close ally and sworn enemy of all things Cameroon…

Loans for Lordships : Still Taking Bets

The news that Catholic school headmaster Des Smith will not face charges suggests that we are entering the endgame for the investigation. Guido is still good for bets.

If anybody wants to step up to the plate and bet that nobody will be charged, do email Guido.

Still haven’t seen a payment from the Observer’s Mark Townsend. He predicted the investigation would be all over in October. The Speccie’s Fraser Nelson is studying the wine list. Anyone else care to risk reputation and wallet?

Update : An Über-Blairite-Ultra-Outrider has emailed to say he is on for “20 notes”. Presumably he means £20. Though he should note they don’t print pound notes nowadays.

Liberal Conservative and Liberal DemocratCampaigns Against ID-Cards

The Tory anti-ID cards campaign (top) to be launched this morning emphasises the practical alternative uses for the money that would be wasted on ID cards, as well as Gordon’s support for them. The current LibDem campaign (below) emphasises the negative effect on liberty. The Tories now say the plan is a “BAD IDEA”. The LibDems have always said it was a bad idea.

UPDATE : The ConservativeHome poll results regarding dealing with the LibDems show that it is now being openly discussed by the Tory grassroots.
