Gloria De Piero claims that a paper is after topless photos of her:
“I have talked about why I posed for these pictures in interviews before. I thought at the time it was a way of improving my circumstances. This is part of my story and part of who I am. I can’t change it now but this happened over twenty years ago.”
“No one should have to worry that something they did when they were young might prevent them from serving their community or getting involved in politics at a local or national level.”
This is now part of Team Miliband’s mantra; Gloria’s comments have been picked up by all sorts, from Ed’s Political Secretary to his trainee attack dog:

— Jonathan Ashworth MP (@JonAshworth) October 17, 2013
So Labour won’t be mentioning anyone’s background again, or something that happened before they came into politics.
Lets see how well this ‘new politics’ holds up with the upcoming publication of Natalie Rowe’s book about George Osborne.
