So who could the mystery guest possibly be… Given Chuka is Ed Miliband’s PPS, could the invisible leader be planning to actually show his face somewhere?

UPDATE : Guido’s high-level bag-carrying and photocopying source reports that he re-visited the photocopier and found the machine now stuffed full of mangled “Chuka Umunna MP: New from Westminster” leaflets, and this note attached to the machine. Not only that, the other photocopier in the room had a similar note attached, in the same hand-writing. Tsk, tsk…
