Canada’s Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, has ordered his election campaign team to edit parts of a Conservative Party web site that showed a puffin defecating on his Liberal Party rival, Stephane Dion.

The doctored puffin now flies past Mr Dion without dropping anything.

News of a plot by Labour backbenchers to dump Gordon Brown, broken last week by Guido Fawkes who'd know a thing or two about polts, was hotly denied by Labour Party managers.

After many months of boredom its getting interesting again.
