Sally Sings the Blues and an Apology to Andy Sawford Daily Star Sunday Column Now Online

It’s not all  bad news for Sally Bercow, she’s managed to take some time away from Twitter to let off steam:

SALLY Bercow is rumoured to be disappointed that her husband John has finally put his foot down about her going on any more high-paying reality TV shows. Sally says she is broke and won’t be able to afford legal bills that may result from her ill-judged tweets about Tory multi-millionaire Lord McAlpine. Labour-supporting Sally claims the legal action is “politically motivated”, though that didn’t stop her singing away the blues last Thursday with a group of Tory researchers in Parliament’s Sports and Social Bar.

Guido is never wrong for long, and always endeavours to make clarifications and corrections as soon as possible whenever he makes a mistake. In the spirit of press reform, his apology to Labour’s Andy Sawford was given due prominence yesterday:

GUIDO would like to apologise to Labour’s Andy Sawford, the new MP for Corby. Last month this column suggested he was second-generation Labour aristocracy. He is in fact the third generation of the Sawford family to carry the red flag into elected office. Andy’s father was the MP for the neighbouring seat until 2005 and his great-grandfather was a Labour councillor in the 1930s. How’s that for social mobility?

Elsewhere in the column there was Boris pulling strings for Bond, LibDem spinning cock ups and Prezza’s rather complacent campaigner.

Yesterday’s Daily Star Sunday column is now online

Quote of the Day

Michael Crick on Safe Seats:

“In effect, new MPs are being elected day by day now, as, amid huge secrecy, small cabals of party bigwigs pick candidates for safe seats.”
