“Full, Open and Transparent Process” For New Guardian Pol Ed
by WikiGuido

Whispers emanating from both the Lobby and the Guardian newsroom suggest Patrick Wintour’s tenure as political editor could soon be over. The rumour doing the rounds is that his telegenic deputy, Nick Watt, has caught the eye of new editor Kath Viner. There is however some discontent among Guardianistas that politically centrist Watt is not as Corbynista-friendly as they would like. Watt will only tell Guido:

“There will be a full, open, transparent process. You should apply!”

Wintour is sixty and has had a career spanning almost 40 years, nine as Guardian Pol Ed. Wintour is not commenting on the matter. Will he retire to a lingering Michael White style comment role, or is there one last big pay cheque lined up? Buzzfeed are hiring…

“Security” No.10’s Corbyn Attack Line of Choice

So what’s new? Stonehouse was just one of a string of Labour Ministers and MPs who were paid agents of foreign (USSR) states

“Security” No.10’s Corbyn Attack Line of Choice
by WikiGuido

Jeremy-Corbyn-11_3328948b

There is one word we will be hearing a lot from Downing Street if and when Corbyn becomes leader. David Cameron mentions “security” six times in an article attacking Jezza for the Times today:

[Economic stability] is what makes it possible to deliver the security we all yearn for. At the heart of our election manifesto was that simple goal: to give people security… Security is formed of many things… getting the training you need to secure a worthwhile career… The most important source of security is a well-paid job… It’s that combination of recovery and reform that will enable us to help those who often have the least security”

Got the message?

If that wasn’t subtle enough, George Osborne used No. 10’s new buzzword a total of eight times in a very repetitive op-ed for the Sun over the weekend, including three times in the first line:

“This is a Government that puts security first – our national security and our economic security… that consensus, which is so important for our security and reliability as an ally, risks being shattered…The UK’s future security is threatened… the return of the unilateralists to British politics threatens our nation’s future security… For the new unilateralists of British politics are a threat to our future national security and to our economic security”

That’s 14 times in 48 hours…

“My concern is that we do everything we can to protect and enhance the security of the United Kingdom” was Cameron’s only previous comment on Corbyn, made two weeks ago. The Tories were masters of thematic campaigning in May, and their new mot du jour has the benefit of ringing true…

Corbynistas Plan to ‘Drink Blood of Thatcher’

Corbynistas Plan to ‘Drink Blood of Thatcher’
by WikiGuido

Jeremy Corbyn’s supporters will be partying like it’s 1983 at the Speakeasy Bar in Epping tomorrow night. The Corbyn campaign is sponsoring an official ‘Cocktails for Corbyn’ bash, offering drinks such as “Dianne Abbotts” [sic], described as “Champagne Socialist Martinis”, and “Kier Hardie” Old Fashioneds. Also on the menu are “Bloody Margarets”, a rather tasteless reference to the late Lady Thatcher. Only 11 people have RSVP’d so far, seems Essex isn’t a Corbynista heartland.

Bloodthirsty Reds…

National Crime Agency Hacked

National Crime Agency Hacked
by technoguido

Stressed out? http://t.co/5631pELDMR #offline pic.twitter.com/hxhAuSdoqq

— Lizard Squad (@LizardLands) September 1, 2015

The National Crime Agency’s website is down this morning – notorious hacking collective the Lizard Squad are claiming responsibility. Last week the NCA arrested six people for purchasing “Stressed Out” software from Lizard Squad that can be used to attack and shut down websites.

No wonder they want help to break into your Snapchats, they can’t even keep their own website online…

So It’s a No Know…

So It’s a No Know…
by WikiGuido

Pretty bad luck to base the entire branding for your Brexit campaign around a pun on ‘No’, only for the Electoral Commission the change the question. That is what has happened to Arron Banks’ ‘The Know’ campaign, who have been unfortunately stung by the question no longer asking “yes” or “no”, but now “stay” or “leave”.

Hopefully those snazzy graphics and posters didn’t cost too much…

Airbus Defence and Space finishes final preparations for launch of LISA Pathfinder

LISA Pathfinder medium

European Space Agency’s gravitational wave detection demonstrator passes space tests

“LISA Pathfinder is a remarkable project to test the ultra-high precision technologies that will be needed to detect gravitational waves in space. Albert Einstein predicted that the waves exist – but so far none have been found. LISA Pathfinder will take us one huge leap nearer to finding them,” said Michael Menking, Head of Earth Observation, Navigation & Science programmes at Airbus Defence and Space.
