TV's Alan Johnson

Word reaches Guido, by way of Laura Kuenssberg’s Twitter feed, that Alan Johnson is in talks with television production companies about his future TV career. Already a regular on This Week, Guido can only speculate what his next move might be, but some obvious remakes of great TV series and films spring to mind.

He’s obviously a Man About the House these days after that incident with The Bodyguard. Though before that Guido heard that The Postman Always Knocks Twice. Too soon for a reality attempt at Three’s Company? Not sure his old minder quite knew the Rules of Engagement, but if worse comes to worse he could always play the Home Secretary in Spooks.

Enough.

Quote of the Day

Stephen Bush writing in the New Statesman‘s morning briefing…

“The terrifying truth is that the Opposition is too divided – within the parliamentary party, within the trades unions, within the Shadow Cabinet and even within the leader’s office – to be anything other than a veto player as far as Brexit goes, and the party’s whole gambit is really about trying to make that weakness look like a strength. Keir Starmer saying that Labour is “increasingly likely” to vote down the deal is simply a reflection of the fact that the one thing the Labour party will be able to agree on as far as Brexit goes is that Theresa May’s deal is no good.”
