CCHQ Try to Put the Frighteners on Leakers

CCHQ get immensely annoyed when stories leaked from Millbank appear on this blog. Before Christmas George Osborne told a staff briefing that they may enjoy “ten minutes of fame” but leaks (and he named Guido in particular) could blow the whole election campaign.  Guido took that as a compliment.

The minor revelation on this blog that ballot papers will not have “David Cameron’s Conservatives” on them, a much mooted and trialled idea, has resulted in chief whip Patrick McLoughlin wading in.  At the Ashcroft / Cameron Tory PPC get-together this weekend the Chief Whip took the stage. He displayed the story on an overhead projector during a talk about loyalty. They’ll have to try harder than that to silence Guido, several PPCs got in touch to laugh about it…

Guido always protects his sources. The proof: when Downing Street threatened a security investigation, they got nothing.  Injunctions get filed in the bin, Court Orders get flouted, mole hunts end up in a hole.  To quote Rick Astley, Guido is never gonna give you up.

You make this blog happen. Sources are always anonymous (unless you want credit). If you know “the line” is a lie, ask yourself why you got into politics; was it to cover up the truth, or tell it? You may even get a conspiracy member T-shirt for your troubles…


Guido relies on you for information.
