Rishi Sunak is Being Sexually Objectified By Owen Jones

It hasn’t escaped Guido’s notice that across the political spectrum on mainstream and social media, including late-night left-wing live streams, that Chancellor ‘Dishy’ Rishi Sunak is being sexually objectified. Last night Owen Jones revealed he thinks Rishi “is not bad looking, objectively” before having to clarify defensively that “his politics aren’t sexy”. Even Sky’s Adam Boulton couldn’t stop himself talking today about the size of Rishi’s package…

Guido is surprised the left are happy to objectify politicians now – it wasn’t so long ago that there was a furore over Tracy Brabin’s risqué dispatch box dress. Is 2020 the year that political correctness has gone full circle?

BARB Comment

As recently as the end of March official ratings agency BARB’s figures show that All Out Politics was getting over quarter of a million viewers. This Wednesday the show got less than 60,000 viewers… this explains much.

Four Way Twitter Melee Over Undisclosed Party Affiliations

After a week of the media continually failing to highlight guest experts’ party affiliations, this morning started off the same, with Sky News failing to inform viewers that Faiza Shaheen was the Labour Party’s Chingford candidate a few months ago. For the first time during the outbreak, an exasperated CCHQ vented their frustration on Twitter, asking Sky why there was no mention of her political CV.

Adam Boulton waded in with his usual tweeted rebuttal, shortly before Sky News ‘corrected‘ their editorial decision

It wasn’t long before the two guests themselves waded in, with Faiza arguing Iain Dale’s previous Tory-affiliations weren’t mentioned, and Dale parrying with the fact he stepped away from political activism 10 years ago and has voted for other parties since.

As ever, we’ll leave it up to Guido readers to decide who won this one…

Number 10 Wants CCHQ Moved Out of London

ConservativeHome are reporting No. 10 is looking to move CCHQ out of its current Westminster base of 4 Matthew Parker Street. The Downing Street plan is to move it to the north or the midlands – only running “a small office in London but maybe up by King’s Cross.” To clarify, we’re talking about CCHQ – not GCHQ as Adam Boulton thought

CCHQ staff have not responded well to the news. Guido hears the immediate response from multiple staff within Matthew Parker Street was “I’m not moving out of f**king London.” Staff tell Guido the general response is “like wtf”…

In true Cummings style, ConHome were told the new central office should have “good train links, well placed in political terms”, as well as being “reasonably close to a university with good maths/physics departments” for a top-class data team. No one tell Carole…

UPDATE: Guido hears that Blue Collar Conservatives have been lobbying for a move similar to this behind the scenes, calling for a a personnel shakeup not just a displacement of the same London set. Last week Eddie Hughes made a public call for it…

Adam Claims Sky Views Not An Opinion Piece

Adam Boulton is loyally defending a colleague. The difficulty with his argument is that the piece is from “Sky Views”, which is not just the widely used pejorative nickname for the channel from critics, as the website explains “Sky Views is a series of comment pieces by Sky News editors and correspondents”. It is billed as an opinion piece and as such is permitted under Ofcom’s Broadcasting code as exempt from the requirement for impartiality. These are the words Beth wrote, she is not quoting anybody or attributing them to anybody, this is given as her own stated opinion. We have not misrepresented her words in any way. 

On the night of the referendum Beth was distraught with the result, she doesn’t like the idea of No Deal and is not a fan of Boris. She is entitled to her views, we don’t have a problem with Sky News being remainstream media, we are not forced to watch it or pay for it. Equally, we’re entitled to draw our readers attention to the slant of their coverage.
