Tatchell Makes Up With Hughes
Many thanks to the blog reader who pointed out that on Newsnight yesterday Hughes apologised for the anti-gayer campaign that won him the Bermondsey by-election against Peter Tatchell:-

“I hope that there will never be that sort of campaign again. I have never been comfortable about the whole of that campaign, as Peter knows, and I said that to him in the past . . . Where there were things that were inappropriate or wrong, I apologise for that.”

Guido is confused, how can he apologise for something that never happened? When Guido mentioned it before on this blog the comments were flaming with outraged LibDems complaining that it was a smear and untrue. Guido seems to recall that he denied any knowledge or responsibility, now he is apologising for it. Just goes to show, a Hughes denial can not always be believed.
