Izzard the Labour Lizzard

Like that persistent tranny who won’t leave you alone at a bar,* Eddie Izzard isn’t fooling anyone. The formerly frocked comedian has given his full-blown support to the “Yes to AV” Campaign, but his pick-up rate hasn’t been too good in the past. Izzard was last seen telling the country that Gordon had saved the world and that we should join the Euro.

But the joke isn’t funny any more. Labour insiders suggest that Izzard is only sucking up to Miliband to take MEP Claude Moraes’ position on the London Labour List for the European Elections. He has been attached to Red Ed’s hip at virtually every Labour Party event since Miliband took over.

Claude is said to be aware Izzard is after his job and is not a happy bunny…

UPDATE : A few minutes after this was posted this popped up:

*Years ago when Guido lived in London’s East End, Izzard used to frequent his local boozer. Eddie would hold court in a cocktail dress to admiring young acolytes. The regulars thought he was a twat.

UPDATE II : Apparently Boulton just put this to Izzard and he confirmed he was interested “in 2020”. Yeah right…

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.”
