Not the First Boobs Alex Aiken Has HandledGuido's Sunday Column Now Online

The Prime Minister might be cutting child benefit for hard-working families up and down the country, but that hasn’t stopped him showing off about his £3,500 for a Savile Row suit to fashionistas. However Guido’s favourite story from his Daily Star Sunday column, that involved Whitehall’s newest spinner:

star“THE Tories were against political appointments to the Civil Service until they got into government. But now Alex Aiken, the party’s former head of news under William Hague, is taking over as executive director of government communications – one of the most powerful spin jobs in Whitehall. A decade ago Aiken was a Tory HQ staffer when he was famously spotted leaving a Commons bar with topless model Jo Guest, inset, after a marathon drinking session. Downing Street will be hoping Aiken can keep abreast of the news and spin the Government out of trouble, which means it’s not the last time he will be handling big boobs.”

If you had picked up your copy yesterday you would also have the latest on legendary luncher Lord Strathclyde, how Dave “lost the room” while briefing Tory MPs on 2015 election strategy, and why James Landale caused a stir when he got the news about Andrew Marr. Guido’s column is now online here

Quote of the Day

Peter Mandelson tells Emma Barnett…

“I think that Jeremy Corbyn himself should search his conscience and ask himself whether he’s the best person to lead the Labour Party into the general election with the best chance of success for the party.”
