Post-It Note Won Gilligan Journalist of the Year

Inside Andrew Hosken’s new biography Ken: The Ups and Downs of Ken Livingstone (after the slightly tedious chapters about left-wing politics) we learn that a City Hall worker on the eighth floor was the source of the emails which may prove to be the downfall of Ken Livingstone. How was this incredible feat of political espionage achieved? A temporary worker read the password off a Post-It note…
He/she was able to log in as Lee Jasper and print off the emails, by the yard, which ended up in Andrew Gilligan’s welcoming hands. General Lee Jasper had to stand down as a result and we all got to laugh at a few hot and steamy emails that he had sent to a female colleague.

Gilligan won the Journalist of the Year award on the back of the the stories. Coincidentally a survey by Infosecurity released today found that

“women are far more likely to give away their passwords to total strangers than their male counterparts, with 45% of women versus 10% of men prepared to give away their password, to strangers masquerading as market researchers with the lure of a chocolate bar as an incentive for filling in the survey.”

Guido hopes the source got more than a choccie bar for his / her efforts.

Quote of the Day

A senior Brexiter:

“If Theresa and Julian have sold us out here they are in real trouble. She reassured us all at the 1922. There is no way she can recover if she has now fucked us over.”
