Watson v Whittingdale

Tom Watson has officially been bought into beef up Ed’s machine. As Deputy Party Chairman in charge of campaigning he will sit in the Shadow Cabinet. John Whittingdale the chair of the Culture Media and Sport Select Committee, where Watson has clawed back his tarnished reputation, suggests there is a conflict of interest. It’s extremely rare for a frontbencher to be allowed to sit on a Select Committee, but Watson is digging in, suggesting that Michael Fallon, who is on the┬áTreasury┬áSelect Committee, holds a similar party role for the Tories:
