Touchy Tom Watson tends to get testy when people bring up his links with the lefties Political Scrapbook. He pointedly told the Leveson Inquiry that he had nothing to do with them, which was news to some:
Watson:“I know the guy, the young guy that runs it. I have no relationship with it in terms of management or anything else.”
Jay: “Have you provided information to them for their use?”
Watson would have us believe there is no cosy relationship here, despite obviously feeding them stories. Fellow Labour MP Kerry McCarthy let the cat out of the bag this weekend though when she revealed Scrapbook‘s special guest for their Labour party conference shindig:
Attention again Labour conference goers. This year's tweet-up is the @psbook party, 7.30, Town Hall, Weds 3rd, with @tom_watson DJ-ing.

Hmm, surely that comes under “or anything else”.
