Dave’s Spinning Cycle, New Labour’s New Slogan

On holiday Guido missed out on all the fun of Dave’s killer-bike-ride-of-crime last week. Have now caught up with it on the Daily Mirror’s website. Tory loyalists are shooting the messenger over this, accusing the Mirror of running a smear campaign* against Cameron. Guido begs to differ, this is what a free press is supposed to do – investigate our rulers, hold them to account, exposing their hypocrisy and shortcomings. That to Guido is good popular campaigning journalism.

Elsewhere in the Mirror today Maguire makes the point that the most revealing moment of “Cameron’s reckless ride to Westminster was the toff’s removal of his cycling helmet.” You can take the man out of PR, but you can’t take the PR man out of the photo-op.

Maguire went on to moan that the Brownies electorally “hoping that Tory toff Cameron cycles through one red light too many won’t work.” Quite. Guido learns from Kevin that Gordon has a new slogan: “New Labour, Your Britain.” Maguire helpfully suggests “with the government behind in the polls, what about: ‘Labour, Not As Bad As You Think’?

Guido twice in agreement with Kevin Maguire in a single day? Must lie down…

*Guido was taught at an early age that “a smear is not a smear when it is the truth”.
