Labour Disowns Sion

Tom Watson and Sion Simon were two of the geniuses behind the failed coup attempt against Blair before Labour party conference. Which resulted in Tom Watson wandering forlornly outside the GMEX centre pretending to talk into his mobile phone. It appears that Tom Watson filmed the Sion Show and uploaded it for him. Tom Watson’s blog seems to be down, but Guido is sure he read a defence of Sion on it before it crashed.

Labour MP Stephen Pound told the BBC that Sion’s video was “a new low in British politics”. Jack Straw, the Leader of the Commons, bitch-slapped Sion thus: “We have to ensure that political discourse is at a reasonable high level that avoids personal attacks.”

The line that gives most offense is “Want to sleep with my wife? That’s cool. Come down, check it out, we’ll sort it out. Safe. I’ve got two kids, kid one, kid two. You like them? Take one; that’s cool.”

If you want to see the Sky News interview meltdown of Sion it is up over on GuyNews.TV (courtesy of Biased BBC).

UPDATE : To be fair, Tom Watson has done a video blog attacking Cameron which advocates campaign finance reform. It has humour, a real message and some star quality. See it here. Obviously he has much more time on his hands nowadays…
