Young Conservatives Hide Their Love Away

The days of the Young Conservatives being a marriage bureau are long gone, but all is not lost for lonely Tory hearts. The YC’s reincarnation Conservative Future are hosting a Valentine’s Ball. Organisers must be a little worried about the pulling potential for the young right wingers though…

It’s masked…

Vince’s SpAd Jumps to Davey

Vince’s SpAd Katie Waring has abandoned her post at the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills to go work for Ed Davey at Energy. According to Tom Newton Dunn, she claims that she is moving to “broaden” her skills, but it’s certainly on the face of it a self-imposed demotion in terms of government rankings and significance. Unless of course she sees the writing on the wall, and the fact that Davey has much more going for him than the one time Sage. Waring is the former smarter and more attractive other-half of Clegg spinner James McGrory. Guido wonders what the pillow talk was about Vince’s future…

Some Women are More Equal Than Others

How much would you pay for dinner with Harriet Harman? Well the going rate seems to be about £7,500 for a table or £750 per plate. It’s ok though, because you get a two free bottles of champagne…

The fourth annual Labour Party Women’s Dinner will be hosted in the Connaught Rooms in Covent Garden. Having eaten there, Guido would feel ripped off at £75, and that’s without the dubious company. One seat would cost a worker on minimum wage, doing 40 hour weeks, three weeks’ pay. Who exactly is Harman expecting to fork out for the occasion? Surely not those rich successful women?

Balls’ Midnight Encroachment On His Wife’s Briefs

The number of former and current Labour figures standing wasn’t the only reason Guido was a little surprised to receive a ranty email about Elected Police Commissioners from Ed Balls in the middle of the night. While the news was breaking that Moody’s would downgrade Britain if his Plan B was adopted, Ed decided to tread on his wife’s toes at 12:37am and send out polling data showing that Labour members don’t like the move. Curiouser and curiouser.

Yvette tried her hardest but failed, to halt Elected Police Commissioners as Shadow Home Secretary. Since they became a reality, the Party have been recruiting candidates:

“Ahead of the elections next November, Labour wants to hear from a diverse range of candidates, from all walks of life, who are interested in becoming a Police and Crime Commissioner in the area in which they live.”

Guido understands that Labour’s official position is to still oppose the Elected Commissioners, though they accept that there is nothing they can do until after the next election. The Shadow Home Secretary has been rather muted as a result, while a host of Party grandees line up to serve. Yet the Shadow Chancellor isn’t letting it go:

“You want money spent on front line policing to keep our communities safe, and at the very least to save money by holding elections alongside other elections. I completely agree. I’m writing to the Home Secretary Theresa May to ask her to listen to you and reconsider her plans. I’ll be back soon with an update.”

Guido signed up to this list to receive updates about the Ed Balls for Leader campaign, and he is now using that mailing list to stir things well beyond his brief. How odd…

Something in the water this morning…

Happy Valentine’s Day, Cherie?

After a diary error left Dave, Nick, George and Danny dining together tonight, a quick reorganisation was undertaken by civil servants to allow “the quad” to spend the Valentine’s Day evening with their wives. Guido has been wondering whether such action would have taken place at “the Quartet”. Anyone know if the Blairs will be spending Valentine’s Day together?

Moodys tell us what could move the rating down…

“… weak growth in Europe — and reduced political commitment to fiscal consolidation, including discretionary fiscal loosening…”
