Scandal has hit the annual Commons/Lords Tug of War as Guido was defeated in a stitch up. Not only did the Total Politics team fail to raise the required £2,500 to take part, but Guido has exposed their cheating. Editor Ben Duckworth filled out his team with a 7 foot rugby player, replacing an actual staffer, the small but perfectly formed Grant Tucker to do so. There is video evidence of this outrage, that can be viewed on the Daily Politics at 11.30…
If only they had spent as much effort raising money, rather than cheating. On reflection, perhaps the Westminster Village team could have done a little more training. Who knew that Boisdale wasn’t the place for tactical planning? We raised over £3,000 for Macmillan though – thank you!
