Tory Whips Tell Pelling to Resign

Andrew Pelling is a pathetic human being. The 48 year-old MP left his first wife to take up with his (now) 26 year-old research assistant Lucy. Not the first MP to do that, probably not the last either.

She has been seen around the Houses of Parliament in recent months with a black-eye and other bruises. All has become chillingly clear with the news that he has been arrested for assault.

To get the full measure of the man you have to know that his young wife is seven weeks pregnant. Guido understands that the Tory Whips are to make it abundantly clear his career is over.

Quote of the Day

‘He persuaded me to do this. He said you need to soften your image. So do Mumsnet and do this…. I’m trying to soften my image.’
