Ed's Glass House

For once Sally Bercow hits the nail on the head:

While Tom Baldwin was overheard pacing around Parliament earlier shouting the line, presumably to a press office minion or one of his old friends at News International, “Cameron has been consistently behind the curve… from the presser this morning, all day” down a phone, his boss was taking to the air. However when Ed Miliband was interviewed on Sky, Adam Boulton didn’t just want to talk about Cameron’s judgement, but Ed’s too. Especially in light of Lord Ashcroft’s curveball this morning.

Despite it being public knowledge that Tom Baldwin stands accused of using  a private detective to raid the Tory party’s bank accounts for a story in 1999, Ed claims he checked and was “satisfied he was the right person to be hired by me” and called Boulton’s line of questioning “desperate stuff”. Clearly flustered he demanded that Ashcroft put up the evidence, which he has already done in a 368 page book – Dirty Politics Dirty Times. Baldwin hasn’t challenged the facts contained in that book. It’s not just the media raising eyebrows, John Prescott told the Daily Politics today he “was a bit concerned” about Baldwin. Lots of people were “a bit concerned” with Andy Coulson, and look what happened to him.
