“Maude’s opposition Labour PPC” they chorused again. To be fair, the Monkey got the scoop from a Labourite who saw them filming “Rehman meets Cameron in parliament” and put 2 + 2 together and correctly got 4. Tip to CCHQ – don’t film a hush-hush video in the Palace of Westminster.
That red-arsed Monkey has been particularly unpleasant about this on his blog, down to publishing Rehman’s personal mobile number. Whatever they may say, the defection must hurt, his official Labour website (Rehman Chishti: Home Page) now has pictures of Blair all over it. Recess told John Bercow and Guido during our pubcast recording last night, “don’t worry we’ll trash his reputation by morning”.
Nasty New Labour.
