Reynolds Hits Back at Diane Abbott Smear

Diane Abbott smeared the departed members of the frontbench on Newsnight as “all former Special Advisers”:

“When you look at some of the other people, when you look at Jonathan Reynolds, if you look at Mr Dugher, if you look at some of these others, what do they have in common? They’re all former Special Advisers…”

Reynolds, who wasn’t a SpAd, hits back:

Anyway, not like Ken Livingstone press officer turned councillor, turned candidate, turned MP, turned shadow minister Diane Abbott is a career politician…

Corbyn Critic Confirms Leadership Ambitions

Back in October, Guido quoted a Shadow Minister who said he wanted Jess Phillips to be the next Labour leader. In December, Julie Burchill wrote in Spectator Life: “She’s going to be leader of the Labour party one day”. Well, Phillips fancies it, telling Newsnight:

“Yes, absolutely I would consider doing it, a long time in the future. It’s not something I’m planning on doing any time soon but it’s absolutely something I would do in the future, yes.”

No “ball coming loose at the back of the scrum” nonsense with our Jess…

Year in 60 Seconds: 10 Best Videos of 2015

Bored of the usual end of year countdowns? GuyNews gives you the ten most amusing moments of 2015 in the form of concise six second clips (or there abouts). Enjoy…

Back in March, Ed Miliband was a Prime Ministerial hopeful dodging bacon sarnies and telling the nation he was “tough enough” to make it to Downing Street. Except he didn’t say “tough enough”. He said “tough anus”.

Election night brought celebrations and commiserations. Here is how one newsroom reacted to Ed Balls losing his seat…

More than one political career was ended on May 8. This was Guido’s favourite resignation…

Labour’s electoral funk had barely lifted when loony lefty Corbynista Richard Burgon let rip in the chamber. He will forever be known as the Farting Commie…

To July, and IDS cheering the Budget. Did he say “fantastic” or “f**king get in”?

Onto the Labour leadership race. Here in all its glory is Diane Abbott dismissing Jeremy Corbyn’s hopes of winning…

Of course Jezza did win, leading to a very different Labour party conference. Some expert lip-reading unearthed this gem: “Give ’em a wave, John…”

In the autumn, the meeting of the always hilarious Youth Parliament brought the rise and fall of an ambitious frontbencher:

Then there was one of Guido’s favourite and most bizarre headlines of the year: “Ken Denies Being Sodomised By Six Men in Succession at Gay Sex Orgy”

And into December, where the Mogg delivered this delicious put down to Dimbers:

Onwards into 2016, comrades…
