Another Thornberry Tweet Lands Her On Front Page

Yesterday Emily Thornberry, the Labour MP for Islington, tweeted this:

et-tweet

To which Guido replied

Which seems to have inspired the Daily Mail’s front page. Back in March, Guido had a right old ding-dong with his former next door neighbour Emily Thornberry. Lady Nugee’s tweet about a lack of social housing stock, despite buying a former housing association house in Islington and renting it out, is breathtaking hypocrisy. An open goal…

Eventually she threatened to sue him for talking about it:

Emily really should stay away from Twitter for her own good.

No writ has turned up… so she can add the Daily Mail to her list of future court adversaries…

Quote of the Day

Writing in this week’s Spectator Diary, the former Chancellor and Evening Standard editor attempted to encapsulate how Boris operates…

“My children have the measure of our prime minister. A couple of years ago, my son and I went for a lovely Sunday lunch at his house in Oxfordshire — where he has a Kalashnikov mounted on the wall. Boris suggested we play a game. A tug of war, but with a difference. The rope is tied around your waist and the contest takes place across a swimming pool. If you lose you end up in the water, fully clothed.

That’s Johnson for you: fun, inventive but ruthless. I suspect his brother Jo had one ducking too many.”
