Greatest NUS Election Video Ever

Tom Harwood is running the most honest NUS election campaign you will see, and he certainly has the best campaign video. He has already won the endorsement of Nick Boles, who says “Put this man in charge of Conservatives digital campaigning!” Speaking truth to the pious self-serving NUS lefties…

Why Do Corbyn and May Make Random Rambling Ranty Statements at PMQs?

Interesting theory from the BBC’s Joey D’Urso – are Jeremy Corbyn’s random ranty rambling non-questions at PMQs deliberately off topic because when clipped up into short videos and pumped out on social media they go viral with his followers? Every week Labour clip his statements and they get hundreds of thousands of views. They seem irrelevant to the small number who watch PMQs live, but look much better as stand alone Facebook videos.

The same theory could explain why Theresa May’s pre-scripted attacks on Corbyn often seem entirely irrelevant to the question:

Though perhaps we are giving them too much credit and they’re both just dire at PMQs.

Hammond: We’ll Pay Divorce Bill Even If There’s No Deal

Well done Phil, great negotiating tactic.

Hammond: We Don’t Know What We Want From Brexit End State

Philip Hammond has confirmed to the Treasury select committee that the Cabinet still hasn’t discussed what the Brexit end state will look like, i.e. whether it will be the convergence non-Brexit preferred by him, Jeremy Heywood and Olly Robbins, or a real Brexit in which we properly diverge from the EU. It has been 18 months since the referendum, it’s mad the Cabinet has not even discussed what Brexit Britain will look like. If the government has no idea on the end state, are they even ready to move onto the next stage of talks?

Davis: Economic Models Always Prove Wrong

Davis admitting the government has carried out no Brexit impact assessments is not going to go down well.

He’s got a point about economic models though… 

Starmer: UK Should Remain in Single Market and Customs Union

Sir Keir Starmer says the UK should leave open the option of staying in the single market and customs union. 18 months have passed since we voted to Leave and still Labour haven’t progressed from here. Labour’s position means continuing freedom of movement. It is not Brexit. What do their voters think of this?

Stanley Steals Nation’s Heart With Wife’s I’m A Celeb Poem

Stanley Johnson is proving quite the star on I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here. Last night’s episode featured a moving poem penned by his wife, to whom Stanley winningly declared his love. He’s going down very well with the fans…

Stanley is providing almost all of the show’s laughs. Here he is rallying the troops before Toff’s bushtucker trial and singing a song about driving an Audi to an Aldi.

King of the jungle?

DUP: Northern Ireland Must Leave EU on Same Terms As Rest of UK

As of 2pm it looks like the UK has agreed to “regulatory alignment” on both sides of the Irish border, a compromise which is not the same as no divergence between Northern Ireland and the EU. The DUP are clear Northern Ireland must leave the EU on the same terms as the rest of the UK and they will not accept being separated economically from the rest of the UK. Lot of noise from Sturgeon and Remainers today. But all eyes are on the DUP and Cabinet Brexiteers when the formal statement comes later…

Steve Hilton to Donald Trump: Give Britain “Big, Beautiful Trade Deal”

Steve Hilton,  Cameron’s former barefoot guru, is dishing out strategy advice on Fox News these days, and this isn’t a bad idea for the President to consider. As recompense for his terrible tweeting last week he should get the UK-USA trade deal done. If the Trump does railroad a good trail deal through, Guido will be waving the US flag on the Mall when he visits…

McDonnell Skewered Over Labour’s Slippery Sums

John McDonnell was again unable to put a figure on the cost of nationalisation or on lifting the public sector pay cap this morning during a masterful skewering of Labour’s economic fantasies. Interviewed on Sunday With Paterson, McDonnell was first confronted on Labour’s slippery sums and their tendency to change. Then the Shadow Chancellor repeated his mantra that nationalisation “will pay for itself”. He claimed it would be “cost free”…

Finally, McDonnell was unable to give a figure for lifting the public sector pay cap. He said: “we’ve costed it within the thing”…

Not a good interview, especially since the Shadow Chancellor has been asked the very same questions on his last few broadcast appearances. Must stop forgetting that iPad…

Top Corbyn Ally Last Night: “Cops Can F**k Off”, Abolish Prisons, Stella is “Sh*t”

A top Corbynista who claims to advise Jeremy Corbyn’s team told a panel event last night that prisons should be abolished and “the cops can f**k off”, Guido can reveal. Lefty campaigner Mika Minio-Paluello told an event hosted by pro-Corbyn website Novara Media yesterday: “I’m the chair of my local branch and I’ve also been doing various advice for Corbyn’s team and for Labour centre”. The Corbyn confidant went on to tell the room:

“Everybody agreed the cops can f**k off – you don’t want them in your neighbourhood… we want prison abolition and we want open borders.”

Minio-Paluello then discussed how violent criminal behaviour on the left should be dealt with internally, “without engaging the police”:

“It’s not just about opening the prisons. It’s about how you deal with hard sh*t, and I’m sure lots of people here will have been involved in groups where you as a political group having to go, how do we deal with people being aggressive to each other with violence within our movement without engaging the police.”

The self-proclaimed Labour adviser also talked about how “the hard left in Labour” could have “seized most of London” in next year’s local elections by winning council selections:

“Like on councils. We could theoretically have seized, as the Left, we could have seized most of London next May/June. The hard Left in Labour, if we’d been better organised, could have won lots of the councillor selections. Would have been tricky but we could have won more.”

And Minio-Paluello labelled both Progress and Stella Creasy “sh*t”:

“Labour in Walthamstow did have lots of meetings. They were run by Stella Creasy. Who I understand is sh*t.”

Mika and Novara Media are well in with Jezza, this is the Labour Party now…

UPDATE: A senior Labour source gets in touch to say “Mika is not an adviser to Jeremy Corbyn or the Labour Party”. Mika said she had been “doing various advice for Corbyn’s team and for Labour centre”. Which sounds like she has been helping them in an unofficial capacity…

UPDATE II: Yet Mika said last night that she advises the Shadow Cabinet on energy policy: “The work that we’re doing for them [the shadow cabinet] which is primarily on energy does build in pretty dramatic shifts in terms of our emissions.”

GQ Staff Wish They’d Never Met Corbyn

GQ editor Dylan Jones tells the Today programme Corbyn’s aides didn’t understand that Jezza “would have to be presentable and couldn’t just turn up in his anorak” and that they “pushed him around like a grandpa”. Jones says the younger GQ staff who attended the shoot went in as fans and came out underwhelmed. Never meet your heroes…

Cop: Porn Wasn’t Extreme But It Was Green Who Watched It

The police forensics officer who examined a computer seized from Damian Green’s parliamentary office has given an interview to the BBC. Neil Lewis says the First Secretary’s claim that it wasn’t him who watched the porn is implausible, and there is “no doubt whatsoever” in his mind that porn was accessed by Green:

“The computer was in Mr Green’s office, on his desk, logged in, his account, his name. In between browsing pornography, he was sending emails from his account, his personal account, reading documents… it was ridiculous to suggest anybody else could have done it.”

Green still denies the claims. Worth noting Lewis also says the material was not extreme – it could be a case of the coverup being worse than the crime here. Could Sue Gray’s inquiry finally release its findings today?

Charles Moore on the aid charity’s sex scandal…

“Oxfam was the Harvey Weinstein of aid – arrogant, bullying, conspicuous in its faults, yet utterly immune until the balance of fear mysteriously changed overnight.”
