I Spy Labour.Org.Uk

A spooky friend of Guido’s draws attention to a strange coincidence. When Labour’s website went up in smoke they switched from the burning embers of Hemel Hempstead data centre Northgate Information Solutions (NIS).

NIS coincidentally do a lot of web work for the government, so it presented no conflict of interest for them, in a one-party state, to be hosting the Labour party’s website. Nor should the fact that Sir Stephen Lander was a non-executive director between his retirement as Director General of the Security Service MI5 and his appointment as chairman of the new Serious Organised Crime Agency present any concerns. Guido has not noticed any donations to the Labour party by NIS people, but maybe a proper journalist might find the link. Incidentally NIS shares are a sell says Guido’s city source.

The Labour party now parks its browser on a cheap hosting service and shares disk-space with a leftie photographer. Geeky dark arts reveal that Labour’s temporary new IP address [] is also used by Rochdale snapper Paul Herrmann.

Quote of the Day

Peter Mandelson tells Emma Barnett…

“I think that Jeremy Corbyn himself should search his conscience and ask himself whether he’s the best person to lead the Labour Party into the general election with the best chance of success for the party.”
