Guido got a call yesterday from the Spectator –
Speccie : Who are you tipping for the Grand National?
Guido : No idea, when is it?
Speccie : An Irishman who knows nothing about horses?
Guido : I know one thing, don’t take any tips from Peter Oborne.
On the basis of Peter’s tips Guido would consider laying (betting against) Brooklyn Brownie and Golden Flight on Betfair. Oborne has finally got the full measure of Gordon Brown. His demolition of Gordon’s G20 boasts is fantastic; Hubris, hoopla and claims that were false, cynical and very, very dangerous.
Hard to believe that Oborne was once Brown’s last commentariat fan.
