Not So “Nice Guy” on the Sly

A co-conspirator emails after watching Question Time last night to point out there was a priceless moment towards the end when Hilary Benn “paid tribute to Alan Johnson for the skill he showed in taking top up fees through parliament”. The look that Johnson gave him was pure evil, as if to say, “thanks, pal, you’ll get yours”. Fantastically devious to remind Labour party activists who stuck them with the highly unpopular policy. Benn managed to make it sound like a compliment.

Punters moved firmly to Johnson to be the winner overnight on Betfair, some money shifted to Harman. Hain and Blears are no hopers at 70/1 and 100/1 respectively. Rumours are circluating that they are begging for votes to avoid humiliation. Blear’s people are warning it will be a slap in the face for Blairites if she comes last. Hain’s people are promising exactly the same thing as well…

UPDATE: Bit of a stewards inquiry in the comments. But after checking, Benn says it and gets the death stare from Alan Johnson 43:38 in, Cruddas brings it up right at the end, imitating Benn, a quarter of an hour later.
