Tory Jim Boasting in the Carlton Club and Lembit's NYE Guido's Sunday Column Now Online

As reported in yesterday’s Daily Star Sunday:

JIM Davidson was praised by Iain Duncan Smith as “a true Conservative supporter” back in 2001, after the comedian bankrolled his victorious Tory leadership campaign. Davidson returned the favour, calling IDS a “very, very caring man” and helped raise cash for the party. Jim is still a member of the posh Carlton Club on London’s St James’s Street that’s favoured by Tory grandees. Guido’s mole reports that recently Davidson was noisily speculating in the club bar about who might be next on the Jimmy Savile cops’ list. The funny man isn’t laughing now he has been nicked flying into Heathrow on his way to the Celebrity Big Brother house.

Guido’s other favourite story from this week had to be Lembit’s New Year’s Eve:

HAPPY New Year to Lembit Opik, who welcomed in 2013 from the cloakroom of the Driver nightclub in London’s Kings Cross. New Year’s Eve revellers were shocked to discover the former Liberal Democrat MP dressed in black tie, checking IDs, tickets and taking coats. He told one partygoer that he wasn’t promoting the “secret agent-themed” party, just helping out as he was “at a loose end”. “It was all incredibly bizarre, as were his dance moves,” one told Guido.

Half a million people read it in print yesterday, and you can now read the blog’s Sunday column online here.

Quote of the Day

Jo Swinson on Chris Rennard…

“Vince — and Tim before him — have repeatedly, publicly said Rennard is not welcome anywhere near their frontbench team, even as an adviser. I remain deeply frustrated that he was not expelled from the party through its disciplinary process. It just feels wrong, and I do not want Lord Rennard to continue as a member of the party. As far as I am concerned, he is not welcome.”
