Sex, Lies and MI5: Labour’s Spinners Weren’t Always So Delicate

The Tories “spent yesterday playing politics in the gutter, trying to smear Labour with lies,” moans a Labour press release sent out this morning. The delicate flowers are still upset with Michael Fallon and stories in the papers today about Miliband’s love life. Because Labour’s spinners would never spread innuendos about their opponents, would they?

Certainly not Miliband comms chief Bob Roberts, apart from his classic Mirror job on Dave claiming that MI5 had “uncovered a dark secret about Cameron” which would “fuel suspicions that Mr Cameron took Class A drugs”. 

Definitely not Tom ‘Hoover’ Baldwin, apart from when he revealed in the Times how several top Tories had spent their university days “intoxicated”Ahem.

And absolutely not Sunday Telegraph pol ed turned Labour spinmeister Paddy Hennessy, apart from when he told us all about Nick Clegg’s “sexual antics” and how he had “admitted to sleeping with ‘no more than 30’ women”. They must be going soft…
