Guido’s co-conspirator with his eye on the Tory girls was at an event last night held by the Conservative Women’s Organisation. John Major told the ladies that last year he had put in a complaint to the Cabinet Secretary, Gus O’Donnell, about Damian McBride’s activities. It was of course to no avail.
The truth is that Gus O’Donnell is seen by many senior Tories as an integral part of Team Brown. They no longer have any respect for him as an impartial civil servant and he is unlikely to survive the coming regime change.
Ironic that he first came to prominence under John Major.
