The blog has been busy at the forefront of breaking news this week, leading on two front-page issues: Huhne and super-injunctions. On Monday we were the first to exclusively reveal where Vicky Pryce was on that fateful night in March 2003, pipping Michael Crick to be first to pixel. On Tuesday our poll of over 4,549 readers revealed that 96% thought Chris Huhne was lying.
Wednesday morning economic data released showed the unemployment rate falling, we suggested Ed Balls go back to the drawing board. PMQs was rowdy, Aidan Burley MP asked the PM to back Guido’s campaign against “Union Pilgrims”, the taxpayer-funded union organisers paid to agitate full-time instead of doing their frontline public sector jobs. Thursday marked Day 11 of the Huhne speeding story, the point where Alastair Campbell says the game is up.
Thursday we outed the doctor who has appeared in political adverts for Miliband, Brown, Sadiq Khan and Tony Blair. Friday was super-injunction day again, we named the billionaire who has muzzled Britain’s press and laughed at Ryan Giggs for being the fall guy for Schillings, the lawyers who more than any other firm have brought the law into disrepute. For good measure we revealed that the Shadow Chancellor’s political adviser had failed to declare his financial interests in breach of parliament’s rules.
