Loose Lips Sink Ships

Any villager should know that walking down Victoria Street yelling into their phone is never going to end well. A co-conspirator, walking just behind one of Labour’s regional coordinators, was most amused to hear about a massive pledge of support from Unite in a meeting this morning, “politics is a funny old business, but we shall see” about activist turnout and most amusingly high praise for Dave. Apparently his question to Brown at PMQs about crossing picket lines caused much amusement, and the general consensus in Labour HQ was that it was a very good line.

Over at Portcullis House on the last busy day of this Parliament, other eyes and ears have been at work. One of the greatest uses of the EyeSpyMP twitter feed is the busting of hacks and their sources. Stewart Jackson was spotted earlier chatting away to the Standard’s political team, and hey presto, Paul Waugh tweets some insider gossip:

We are watching you…

UPDATE : Stewart Jackson emails: “I never “briefed” Paul Waugh or showed him any Whip’s messages. My only comment in a two minute chat – with another Conservative MP present – was that David Cameron had played a blinder!”  Very loyal.  So who was the other MP?

Quote of the Day

Michael Crick on Safe Seats:

“In effect, new MPs are being elected day by day now, as, amid huge secrecy, small cabals of party bigwigs pick candidates for safe seats.”
