Heir to Blair: Tony and Cherie Called Robinson For Euan

Geoffrey Robinson has responded to Guido’s story about  him standing down at the next election:

 “I’m standing. Period”

A denial of Thraser ineptitude, but it was the Coventry Telegraph that really caught Guido’s eye:

“Senior Labour party sources close to city MP Geoffrey Robinson’s office claim both Tony and Cherie Blair have contacted the MP inquiring about his Coventry North West constituency seat for the next election.”

On the record, Labour spinners have dismissed the idea of Euan Blair going for the seat in three years time, but crucially they did not deny that he had been attending constituency meetings – as Guido exclusively reported – and that he had been delivering in the local area. Apparently it’s because he’s involved in the local party. You have to wonder why that is when he lives in a £1.3 million bachelor pad 95 miles away in Marylebone…

Despite Robinson denying he was helping Euan, the evidence is mounting up. Since quitting his job at Morgan Stanley, Blair junior has recently taken up a part time, and possibly voluntary role, at Sarina Russo Job Access – a company based in Coventry that is part of the government’s Work Programme. That will look better on the local CV than investment banking…

Meanwhile the Telegraph’s deadly rival, the Robinson patsies over at the Coventry Observer, have swallowed old Geoff’s denial hook, line and sinker. The story was right under their noses…
