Insipid Shadow Education Secretary Stephen Twigg was scheduled to give speech at IPPR an hour ago, although it was mysteriously ‘postponed’ without explanation. Guido is less worried about missing out on a pearl of wisdom from the under-performing one time Blairite and more intrigued by the timing. Speculation is rife that Twigg is for the chop. His office are not taking calls.
Are there movements afoot?
A Labour spokesman says:
“This is a very important speech about school standards. As Syria is dominating the news agenda Stephen decided it would be sensible to make it in a few weeks time.”
