Cox Narrates Children’s Story

Whilst we’re all coping with self-isolation differently, Parliament’s baritone, Geoffrey Cox, answered many prayers last night by uploaded a relaxing narration of the Chinese fairy tale ‘The Stone Monkey’. The whole thing is worth a few listens, though Guido wonders whether this recently-sacked Cabinet Member inserting his own message into the tale when quoting the stone monkey: “I want to be lord of the sky. I could manage things much better than they are managed now”…

Play it to the little ones at bedtime…

Geoffrey Cox on Impending Reshuffle

‘Have I had enough of the job let me make plain, absolutely not. This has been one of the greatest – in fact, the greatest – honour of my political life… If you gave me the opportunity to continue, I would embrace it eagerly. But equally, if it is not to be, well then there are other doorways that will open for me.’

Only one day until we find out for sure…

Labour Calls for Cox To Apologise for Calling MPs “Turkeys”

Just when Guido didn’t think the level of total Parliamentary pettiness could sink any lower, the Shadow Leader of the House has asked for Geoffrey Cox to return to the Dispatch Box and apologise for calling Parliament “turkeys”. No, really…

“This is no way to run a parliament… calling us turkeys is not appropriate language.”

No one really knew what opposition MPs would do after going to the extreme lengths to recall Parliament through the Supreme Court of this country. Apparently the answer was to squabble amongst each other over the use of a Christmas based metaphor. This isn’t student politics, it’s kindergarten.

Emma Hardy’s Wife-Beating Hypocrisy

Hidden away in Geoffrey Cox’s barnstorming Commons performance this morning, he referenced his legal training with the go-to legal example of the leading question “when did you stop beating your wife?”. Guido has always welcomed hearing his legal knowledge nuggets for free, rather than coughing up his usual £20,000 per day rate…

Afterwards, however, Hull MP Emma Hardy voiced her disbelief that Cox would use such an offensive term.

At the time Guido presumed she was simply being ignorant of the phrase, however it has come to light that Hardy herself used this leading question in exactly the same way Cox did just a couple of years ago…

Either she was knowingly being incredibly disingenuous with faux outrage for petty party political point-scoring, or that’s one hull of a memory problem…

Cox: This Parliament is a Disgrace!

Attorney General, Geoffrey Cox, just gave one of the most barnstorming speeches Guido has seen in many years:

“This parliament is a dead parliament. It should no longer sit. It has no moral right to sit on these benches… This parliament is a disgrace. They could vote ‘no confidence’ at any time, but they’re too cowardly.”

Guido has a feeling this one may go viral…
