Peter Hain’s Family Spinning Side Project

Peter Hain has spent the morning rubbing salt into Tory boundary wounds, openly gloating about a potential 11% handicap facing Tories hoping for a majority. Evidently having too much time on his hands as a mere MP, Peter Hain has just become a partner in his wife’s political PR firm. Back in 2010 Elizabeth Haywood described being the politician’s wife to the Guardian:

“Your job is open to comment, and certain roles may be off-limits (for example, I would have found it very difficult to continue in my old job as a lobbyist) or will create adverse comment.”

A politician’s wife being a lobbyist is off limits, eh? Funny then that Elizabeth’s bio on the Haywood Hain website boasts of her ability to influence ministers: “Dr Elizabeth Haywood is well versed in public affairs, media and government. She has lobbied Ministers and appeared on peak-time TV and radio”. How she might have done that Guido can only guess…

    I’ve got a rough idea what UKIP stand for, but what do the other three main parties stand for nowadays? – except for the EUSSR.

    Peter Hain’s vision of a great Britain is, sadly, very similar to that of his much-admired Zimbabwe under Mad Bob Mugabe and the corruption-riddled South Africa under the ANC mob.

    And Mrs Hain is a Director of the crackpots who want to build a barrage across the Severn – funny that Mr Hain sat behind them egging them on at the Select Committee this week. No conflict of interest there.

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
