Balls Still Denying Debt

It looks like Ed will be fighting the debt his old landlord claims he owes him in Court. Quite why he hasn’t settled baffles Guido. Amongst others, the local paper is keeping the pressure on…

Clegg Fails to Recall His Manifesto

Nick Clegg has just said during DPMQs that the power to recall MPs isn’t going to be granted anytime soon. He said he didn’t want to aid “vexatious and unjustified” complaints and was very vague about when such a procedure will be put in place, or how it will work.  Quite a blow for the Yes to AV headbangers and their attempts to steal the anti-politics message.

They say voting reform – in connection with other reforms – would make MPs more accountable, responsive and harder working. Yet their standard bearer Clegg has knifed them in the back by stopping the only real measure to allow recourse against MPs between elections. Not only that, but recall powers were promised in both the governing parties’ manifestos…

Quote of the Day

Ed lets slip which Ed is in charge:

“I’m not allowed to commit any funds, otherwise I’ll get into trouble with the Shadow Chancellor.”

House of Thieves

According the the Serjeant at Arms crime is becoming an issue on the Parliamentary estate. Writing to MPs and staffers she claims parliament can:

“provide rich pickings for opportunistic individuals who will take advantage of any lax office procedures.”

Who’da thunk it?

She even helpfully includes a poster to display around the offices:

“And in the mean time, if in doubt LOCK IT AWAY.”

Seems to be doing the trick with crooked Labour MPs.

Diggin' Into Wiggin's Piggin' (Again)Mystery of £5,000 Bung to Conservative Association

Remember when Bill Wiggin nearly got the chop over his expenses? Or when he let slip he was lying about his main home and then tried to wriggle out of it? Well Dave’s chum, who married the PM’s ex-girlfriend, is certainly feline like in his lucky escapes. Though yet again serious questions have emerged about his creative expense claims.

The Sunday Mirror reported over the weekend that Wiggin claimed five grand for room hire for his constituency surgeries back in 2007. The problem is that local sources allege that he only held four two hour surgeries that year which works out at the taxpayer paying £625 per hour to the Conservative Party. The local community hall down the road does room hire for £8 per hour.

The North Herefordshire Association also deny the room hire rent arrangement and the £5,000 is looking increasingly like a bung.

Quote of the Day

Jane Russell asked what she thought of Hollywood lefties said…

“I think they’re not well.”

OTT Oona's Ku Klux Klan Cock Up

Yes that’s right kids… the evil ConDems are stringing people up from trees and lamp posts in order to bring down the deficit.

No wonder the liability factor kept London Labour in Ken’s grip…

A View From the Bridge

Taking a stroll across Westminster Bridge at around ten past eight this morning, Guido gazed up at the Opposition offices in the Norman Shaw Building. Miliband’s office and the outer room next to it were cloaked in darkness with all the lights off. Quite a contrast to the area occupied by Ed Balls, open for business with the lights blazing. Love the smell of plotting in the morning…
