EyeSpy.MP revealed last night that Derek Draper was back in the heart of politics in the company of Gloria de Piero MP. Gloria of course shared the GMTV sofa with Dolly’s missus Kate Garraway before she went into politics.
Last night when first spotted there was some incredulity that he would show his face again in the corridors of power, yet he was later seen enjoying himself on the Commons terrace.
What does the ‘Beauty and the Beast’ pairing signify? Is he giving politico-media advice to Gloria, or readying himself for a return? Guido thinks he deserves a third chance, the Labour Party in opposition is a very dull thing, set to get even duller under the leadership of David Miliband. Dolly’s return would liven things up…
UPDATE: Lest we forget Dolly gave Gloria her first job at his old comms firm Prima.
