Hain Fundraiser : “Small Problem With Donations”

Guido has been running up his phone bill trying to get hold of Labour fundraisers. Peter Hain’s fundraiser, Huw Roberts was kind enough to call back.
HR Hello, I couldn’t make out your message, who is that?
GF I was calling about your undeclared donations to Peter Hain’s campaign
HR Who are you? What are you talking about?

This went on for a bit. During which he claimed to have never met and never even heard of Jon Mendelsohn until this weekend. After some time where he tried to get Guido to tell him what Guido knew, he coughed a confession.

HR There is a small problem with my donation. It is not my fault. He has to declare the donations, not me.

The conversation got a bit confused and fraught at this point, Huw would only concede that he had made a donation, yet despite having held fundraising dinners for Peter Hain, he would not confirm any other donations were undeclared. No donation of any kind is recorded from Huw Roberts…

UPDATE : Have just got off the phone with Joe Carberry, Hain’s SpAd, “what you have written on the blog is not true”. So is Huw Roberts lying? “I am going to put the phone down” said Carberry. Guido gets through a lot of Hain SpAds per annum, so it is understandable.
