Saturday Seven Up

7upGuido has spent the week “Huhnting”. Last Sunday’s papers revealed that the wily Secretary of State for Energy, Chris Huhne, had forced “someone close to him” to accept penalty points to avoid losing his driving licence. A criminal offence and a resigning issue. After much tracking down of former staffers, Guido clicked. What if it was Vicky, his estranged wife, who coughed the arrangement, that took the bullet? While she isn’t necessarily going to incriminate herself this Sunday, it will be interesting to see how far she is willing to twist the knife into her soon-to-be ex-husband’s career. The crosshairs even came out.

Super Injunctions have also been the order of the week and Guido certainly gave Adam Boulton a fright on Sky News on Monday, when he gave some very simple media advice to the rich and the famous, it was such good advice that it was repeated last night on Have I Got News for You.

Meanwhile, Neo-Guido, also known as the site’s News Editor, fresh from sparring with Polly Toynbee on Newsnight on Tuesday, stuck it to David Laws and his spinners on the BBC News Channel on Thursday night, highlighting the £99,000 “gift” that was the real reason for the harsh punishment the LibDem golden child.

You’re either in front of Guido, or you are behind…

Jeremy Corbyn on Big Ben Bong Ban

“… if we have to miss Big Ben in reality for a while so that work can be done, well, that’s something we have to go through. It’s not a national disaster or catastrophe.”
