No He Khan't

There was much amusement at Sadiq Khan’s puff-piece interview in this month’s GQ. The Shadow Justice Secretary was hit with tough and rigorous questions such as:

“I live in Tooting and it’s amazing how much people there love you. You seem one of the few politicians who people not only trust but also really like. Why do you think that is?”

Guido hears all is not well in red circles where Khan is concerned. His slippery behaviour has made him deeply unpopular in the Parliamentary Labour Party and Guido understands there was distinct unease about his closeness to the leader. Given a distancing job, the one time campaign manager has all but been cast out by Miliband, because of concerns that Khan could bring him down. Over at justice, Sadiq no longer has any input, or a desk, in the shadow HQ. Khan still has lingering questions over his dodgy expenses habits, but Ed could survive losing a member of his Shadow cabinet rather than one of his inner circle…

Quote of the Day

Philip Hammond uses a trip to Berlin to mock the Foreign Secretary:

“A compromise is the art of dividing a cake in such a way that everyone believes he has the biggest piece. Wise words with some applicability to the Brexit negotiations although I try to discourage talk of “cake” amongst my colleagues.”
