“Campaign Coordinator” Tom Watson Drops Another Clanger

Tom Watson’s re-branding from boot-boy Blair-stabber to Murdoch-slayer has come under fire ever since the Labour Deputy Chairman in charge of campaigning saw George Galloway steal a safe Labour seat on his watch. Along with his fingerprints being all over stitch ups, his dubious halo is starting to slip. Many have wondered where the fearless seeker of truth has been throughout this turbulent few weeks. Well Guido found him:

MURDOCH’S NEMESIS TARGETS SOUTH CAMBS MP –
IN HIS OWN CONSTITUENCY

THE man who led the campaign against Rupert Murdoch’s media empire is to turn his sights on South Cambridgeshire MP Andrew Lansley – in the Health Secretary’s own constituency.

Labour’s Deputy Chair and Campaign Co-ordinator Tom Watson MP felt so appalled by proposed reforms to the NHS he decided he “couldn’t stomach any more”.

So in an email to Party members he said he would personally campaign in Mr Lansley’s constituency to “remind them what would happen” if Lansley’s plans go through.

He will visit the constituency on Wednesday, April 11 to knock on doors and talk to voters ahead of the Local Elections on May 3.

“For Andy Burnham’s Drop the Bill campaign to succeed, we have to talk to people in our communities to get the message across,” he said.

The Drop the Bill campaign cannot succeed – it failed when the Bill recieved Royal Assent on March 27.

The “Notes to Editors” made Guido chuckle too:

“Tom Watson is MP for West Bromwich East and Labour’s Deputy Chair and Campaign Co-Ordinator in the Shadow Cabinet. He was a Minister in the previous Labour Government and shot to fame as a member of the Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee, where his campaigns against phone-hacking at the News of the World won him much praise.”

Perhaps the rotund bruiser should spend a little more time concentrating on his campaigning rather than self-aggrandisement.

Quote of the Day

Sky’s Faisal Islam on the mood in Parliament at the moment:

“It’s a totally febrile atmosphere here. It’s kind of like Game of Thrones meets House of Cards – and if you chuck in the Labour Party – Laurel and Hardy too.”
