Nothing Personal

Back from lunch and Guido sees an incoming message from Sandra Gidley MP on the fax machine. Aha!

At last we will see evidence of that vicious Tory minx challenger’s personal attack that pains our LibDem heroine so much. Guido searches the Tory leaflet high and low – front and back page – but no personal attack is found. Certainly not the “silly statement” claimed on the Romsey Redhead’s blog. But what is this on the back page, last column, half way down, about an inch square? Three surnames which I surmise to refer to John Denham, the Labour MP for Southampton Itchen, Alan Whitehead, the MP for Southampton Test and Sandra Gidley the current MP for Romsey. So the painful “personal attack” appears to be not personal and not really an attack, more of a question. Given that fatal MRSA rates have shot up 30% since 2003, its a good question.

All a bit disappointing really. Still at least we cleared one thing up, Sandra Gidley at best misquotes for spin, or at worst she just makes things up.

UPDATE: The Romsey Redhead has now switched off the comments section on her blog. How illiberal! Presumably due to the number of people writing “Liar, Liar, Knickers on Fire!” and suchlike. Alas Guido’s superior page ranking means Googlers will come here first when searching for “Romsey Redhead”. Or they could go to GidleyWatch.
