Red Princes: Kinnock's Son Eyes Safe Wales Seat

Neil Kinnock’s son Stephen is married to Helle Thorning-Schmidt, the sizzling Danish PM in the selfie-sandwich between Obama and Dave. As Guido revealed in yesterday’s Sun column, young Kinnock has let it be known he would be interested in the Aberavon seat in Wales, where Hywel Francis plans to retire in 2015. The latest Red Prince to throw his name into the ring following Guido’s scoops on Euan Blair and Will Straw, and persistent rumours about Joe Dromey.

Winning that rock-solid Labour seat might make married life difficult for Stephen with his wife Helle back in Copenhagen. They are used to it – until last year he controversially lived in Davos, Switzerland, and saw his wife on fewer than 33 weekends so as to avoid high Danish taxes.

Quote of the Day

President Trump on May’s Brexit deal:

“I would say that Brexit is Brexit. … The people voted to break it up. So I would imagine that’s what they’ll do. But maybe they’ll take a different route, I’m not sure that’s what they voted for.”
