Bitch Fight of the Week: Vine Versus Brazier

Brillo’s divorce from GB News has prompted the inevitable mockery from the Twitterati, although Jeremy Vine’s spiteful intervention seemingly came out of nowhere. In a now-deleted tweet, the BBC’s Vine posted:  

Brazier eventually suggested the cause of this apparently unprovoked attack:

It turns out Vine doesn’t like people pointing out he gets £324,000 a year from the public purse…

This isn’t the first time Brazier and Vine have collided: when Prince Philip died back in April, Vine took the opportunity to lament the lack of diversity on display at his funeral – to which Brazier tweeted “whatever the question, racism’s the answer.”

Brazier had the final word when he signed off last night’s show, introducing viewers to the latest member of his household…

Jeremy Vine’s Musical Political Analysis

Jeremy Vine has brought back his dodgy American accent for a musical analysis of the state of play of the Tory Leadership race in the style of Bob Dylan. At least Jacob Rees-Mogg approves…

Jeremy Vine Worth Four Ed Milibands

The licence fee payer shelled out a mere £2,500 to listen to Ed Miliband evaluate toilet flushes when he sat in for Jeremy Vine on Radio 2, the Register of Members’ Interests reveals. That means Miliband bagged £500 for two hours work a day, which, to be fair, is an enormous discount on Vine’s reputed £10,000-a-week for the radio show. Vine is therefore worth four Milibands*…

Iain Duncan Smith, who took over the show the following week, is yet to declare any payment. Was he free?

*Didn’t Ed Miliband used to say he wanted to ban MPs from taking second jobs?

Vine: “I’m there as having a salary of between £700,000 and £750,000. How do you justify that?”

Now Hancock Gets Copeland Tory’s Name Wrong Too!

Last night Matt Hancock was unable to name Stoke Tory candidate Jack Brereton when asked by Andrew Neil. His excuse was that he had been up in Copeland…

This afternoon Hancock did the double, getting new Copeland Tory MP Trudy Harrison’s name wrong on Radio 2, repeatedly calling her Judy Harrison. When challenged and corrected by Jeremy Vine, Hancock shamelessly tried to bluff it. For goodness sake man, go to bed.

Corbyn Blasts Shadow Cabinet “Diehards”

Jeremy Corbyn blasted what he claims is a “small number” of “diehards” in his party who would back bombing ISIS in Syria “whether there was a whip or not”:

“I think that there will be a large majority of Labour MPs voting against the war. There a small number who are very diehard in supporting the war. They would have probably supported the war whether there was a whip or not.”

A “small number” of “diehards” including Hilary Benn, Tom Watson, Andy Burnham, Michael Dugher, Vernon Coaker, Chris Bryant, Angela Eagle. In other words two thirds of his Shadow Cabinet and dozens of backbenchers. We will see how “small” that number is tomorrow night…
