iKev Vs. Ken

Oona King’s bandwagon is gathering pace, her campaign team is certainly growing. She has taken on Kevin McKeever, a former Labour PPC, to run her logistics. Back in his student politics days Kevin was lucky to get away scot-free after being accused of deliberately hacking and taking an opponents website off-line in his unsuccessful Durham union president bid. You can read his shaky defence here.

Guido thought he better check young Kevin isn’t anywhere near a computer this time round.

Oona’s press man, former Times tech-hack Dan Sabbagh was quick to stress Kevin is “dotting Is and crossing Ts” rather than campaigning on-line, but let the cat out the bag eventually. “He’s a real dab hand and was very useful setting up our network so quickly” Uh oh, Team Ken better check their cyber-security levels.

UPDATE: Specialist bookies Smarkets currently have Ken ahead of Oona for the Labour nomination.

Quote of the Day

Dominic Raab wrote in his letter of resignation…

“This is, at its heart, a matter of public trust,” he told the PM, concluding: “I cannot reconcile the terms of the proposed deal with the promises we made to the country in our manifesto at the last election… I believe that the regulatory regime proposed for Northern Ireland presents a very real threat to the integrity of the United Kingdom. I cannot support an indefinite backstop arrangement, where the EU holds a veto over our ability to exit…”
