A key Downing Street figure is set to fight Croydon Central in the next General Election, although it’s not previous MP Gavin Barwell. The local party last night selected Mario Creatura, the PM’s digital SpAd (he does the PM’s tweets) who was brought in to revitalise Downing Street’s social media operation, to try to win his boss’s former seat back. Creatura is one of Barwell’s Croydon cronies of yore and his former Parliamentary aide. Number 10 are evidently keen on keeping the constituency in the family. Will any mischievous Downing Street staffers be getting Creatura a copy of his boss’s book for Secret Santa?
