McBride Complains About Anonymous Briefings

mcbride-shag
The irony is exquisite, Damian McBride is hurt that supposed friends are briefing about his private life:

A brilliant story from the Mail that, no doubt because of the lawyers, is missing the basic who, when and where? The other question that arises, in the party from which Ed Miliband told us this morning he has banned anonymous briefing, is who briefed the story to the MailCui bono?

Anyway here is a reminder of the female ministers from that 2003 – 2009 era, Dawn Primarolo, Margaret Beckett, Patricia Scotland, Harriet Harman, Ruth Kelly, Beverly Hughes, Hazel Blears, Jacqui Smith, Yvette Cooper, Caroline Flint, Melanie Johnson, Jane Kennedy, Gisela Stuart, Rosie Winterton, Maria Eagle, Anne McGuire, Baroness Ashton, Baroness Morgan, Meg Munn, Barbara Follet, Kitty Ussher, Baroness Taylor, Baroness Glenys Kinnock and Shriti Vadera. My guess is you can rule out the Blairites…

Quote of the Day

Jo Swinson on Chris Rennard…

“Vince — and Tim before him — have repeatedly, publicly said Rennard is not welcome anywhere near their frontbench team, even as an adviser. I remain deeply frustrated that he was not expelled from the party through its disciplinary process. It just feels wrong, and I do not want Lord Rennard to continue as a member of the party. As far as I am concerned, he is not welcome.”
