Watson Replaced on Labour NEC by Former Brown SpAd

How’s this for the dawn of a new politics? Tom Watson has been replaced on Labour’s ruling NEC by Jon Ashworth: a former Brown Special Adviser who was parachuted into a safe Labour seat at a by-election.

“Johnny Sparkle” used to be in charge with liaising with the unions for the party, and as the Standard once noted, his contact book is “stuffed with constituency officers and union organisers”. Continuity Labour.

    The good souls who leave comments at Guidos are a rowdy bunch,

    Whether its a full blown scandal or a Westminster lunch,

    The asterisk mob

    Have a fearful sized gob,

    But they pack a tremendous punch.

    So why have I come to cherish these divergent views?,

    When I am curious about something it is there that I choose,

    The views that are expressed,
    Are got off so many chests,

    They help us all see below the surface of the news.

    FFS does Watson do any work at all? Glastonbury, down the pub up in Brum. Is he Gordon Brown in disguise? Will he be taking the payrise, rather than just the rise?

    This offered appears to be in order to recieve an enormous ammount of visitors. How would you get targeted prospects to it? It gives a pleasant exceptional spin in points. I assume possessing anything at all authentic as well as substantial to speak about is the most important factor.

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.”
