Happy St David’s Day

Happy St David’s Day to you all, and to Steve Morgan happy birthday and happy wedding anniversary. Morgan is unfortunately reeling from the recession and reaping the consequences of his sleazy spin antics being widely exposed. Morgan has reputedly been a very angry man since all his ambitions started collapsing, for the maestro behind Hain’s disastrous deputy leadership bid, life this last year has been challenging politically, professionally and personally.

His firm, Morgan Allan Moore, is in ruins with offices closed and clients drifting away. Not surprising really after the firm became the first to be booted out of the lobbyist’s club the APPC, for breaching the rules on client disclosure. The firm was even singled out for criticism by the Public Administration Select Committee in their report on the lobbying industry. A highly risky High Court libel case against a former employee turned whistle blower was dropped when evidence emerged to back up the whistle blower’s claims. Rumour has it that a director’s living room now doubles as the English “office”. On the political front Steve Morgan can’t even count on old mates now once loyal Peter Hain has publicly gone on the record to blame Morgan’s incompetence for his own downfall.

Quite cunning of Morgan to have his wedding (and birthday) on St David’s Day, avoids any danger of him forgetting flowers (presumably daffodils) for the wife, which must be a danger when you are on your fifth marriage. At least his marriage to Deborah (half his age) isn’t falling apart. Is it?

Quote of the Day

John McDonnell tells the Gallery/Lobby lunch what the priest told him to do…

‘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.’
