Watson’s WAGs*

Another day and another Labour selection overshadowed by the heavy hand of Tom Watson. Congratulations to Stephanie Peacock the trade unionist of no distinguishable career, who has managed to get selected in the marginal seat of Halesowen and Rowley Regis. Regular readers will remember that Ms. Peacock is romantically linked to Watson and at just 25 is on rather the young side, to be a candidate. Peacock will receive a lot of heavy support from Labour’s Vice Chairman for Campaigns, no doubt.

Elsewhere, the fallout from Watson’s attempt to get his close personal friend and staff member Karie Murphy the seat of Falkirk continues to unravel. The Mail didn’t name the “senior Labour figure”, though it’s clear Watson is in this one up to his waist. Not only have there been allegations of block buying membership for union heavies, now someone has been threatening the employer of Murphy’s rival:

“The Labour whistleblower told The Mail on Sunday: ‘I was shocked to be told a senior Labour figure told Blue State Digital that unless Poynton pulled out of Falkirk, the company could lose contracts with Labour.’”

He sent congratulations to Joan Ryan too; the expenses fiddler was selected in Enfield North in an equally dodgy selection process. Guess who visited the seat hours before the dodgy goings on began?

*Women and Girlfriend.

Quote of the Day

Tory MP Nick Boles says what everyone thinks…

“There is a timidity and lack of ambition about Mrs May’s Government which means it constantly disappoints. Time to raise your game, Prime Minister.”
