EXCLUSIVE Ali Miraj : Labour Did Approach Me to Defect

Guido spoke at length with Ali Miraj last night and learnt that there was, as widely rumoured, an approach from a Labour party intermediary and that he turned down the approach. He told Guido that he did not take it that seriously and he would never defect.

He angrily described the team around Cameron as “twats”.

He said that he had sent his critical article to Cameron, Coulson and Hilton last week. On Thursday Cameron called him directly and pleaded with him not to publish it. Cameron was the one who suggested Miraj come in and see him at his Commons office on Monday.

During the meeting “we discussed ways I could help”. Cameron did not concede any of the criticisms in the original article, but merely defended his position with “flim flam”.

Guido put it to him repeatedly that it was true he had suggested making him a Lord, he did not deny the claim as made by Cameron, flannelling that he wasn’t going to discuss a private conversation, even though we were discussing just that.

Then the discussion took a very interesting turn, he was very critical and animated about the Sayeeda Warsi peerage. Comparing his decade long support and work for the party to her more recent support. The tone was “why her, and not me?”. This was very revealing, his ambition and impatience has previously boiled over at the promotion of Asian women. In the previous case it was about Priti Patel. He is at 32 a man in a hurry with a high opinion of himself. He feels strongly that having been an early supporter of Cameron he deserved special treatment. Now he has got it, kicked off the A-list…
