Prezza’s Conspiracy Theory Unravels

Guido has a sore head from Political Scrapbook’s drinks last night. As revenge he has some bad news for them. They thought they were on to a winner earlier this week with a story claiming that John Prescott was the victim of a vicious Tory smear campaign. It was claimed that a series of questions over Prezza’s use of public credit cards were placed in MPs’ names without their knowledge. However, the Table Office have now conceded that the entire mess was down to a simple admin error by them, as the Tories insisted all along:

Dear Mr Elphicke,

I can confirm that the questions were wrongly recorded as being in the name of Sir Alan Beith due to an administrative error in this office. We took steps to correct this shortly after they were tabled, when we realised the error had been made. Unfortunately, when the questions were answered, some were returned under the original wrong name of Sir Alan Beith, which overwrote our correction. We have since corrected this again and I have just checked the Parliamentary records and confirmed that they all now appear correctly in your name.

I am very sorry for this error and the inconvenience it has caused you  please do get in touch if there is anything further we can do to assist.

Best wishes,

Sue Griffiths

Clerk, Table Office

House of Commons

Oh well…

    Blimey, Prezza got it wrong. What a surprise…..

    Typical bedwetter strategy. Simply asking the question is a ‘smear’ or a ‘conspiracy’.

    Which neatly diverts attention away from the actual question. Or the answer.

    Blimey! The world you lot inhabit sounds like one big non-stop party, full of burst-your-bladder hilarity and high jinx. Not.

    Me thinks he has already done more than enough grazing already.

    Note that a Sue turns up again. Looks like there’s a National Conspiracy of Susans dedicated to showing the Nation what complete bell-ends the Labour dino-stocracy are.

    One bullet to his skull would do the job. It’s quick, simple, humane and cheap.

    Would those be the credit cards the dodgy use of which prompted an investigation, after which it was determined His Lardship was a “victim of credit-card cloning”? I suppose one good whitewash deserved another, especially where Prezza’s concerned. Just sweep it under the rug, it wasn’t really important anyway, right?

    It’s the humane part I object to…

    Expansion, with the view to dominating the electro-magnetic emissions that, as I type, are winging their way towards some intelligent, far-distant life form?

    Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by incompetence

    Its a good job no one altered a permanent secretary’s letter before it was sent.

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
