Mashed Hot Potato

The currently out of service Recess Monkey blog had, before it collapsed, a story about Angus MacNeil MP sending spuds through the parliamentary mail system. Hugo Rifkind, The Times’ gossip coumnist checked out the story with the MP. Angus denied it.

Now why would a Labour leaning blogger spread such a story about a newly elected MP from the far reaches of Scotland? Could it be something to do with the fact that Angus is the MP who called in Yates of the Yard to investigate the cash for honours scandal?

Is someone out to tarnish the reputation of the only other man to enter parliament with honest intentions?

Quote of the Day

Lucy Allan explains her positive comments about the Brexit Party…

“If EU elections are held, Leave supporting voters will want to vote for Leave supporting candidates… Usual party loyalties will be eclipsed by the Leave v Remain divide. It’s good to see strong candidates in the Leave camp. However, I sincerely hope we leave the EU before these elections are held so that we can move on and not waste time and money on unnecessary EU elections.”
