Rayner’s Spin Doctor Goes “On Leave” After Week of Labour Turmoil

Angela Rayner just can’t seem to catch a break this week: no sooner is her team totally “blindsided” by another Labour reshuffle she wasn’t consulted on, and snubbed by Sir Keir’s lobby Christmas drinks, Guido hears her chief spinner has chosen this moment to go on leave.

Angie Williams is leaving her job as a press officer in LOTO. Rumours are swirling today that Corbyn’s commie aide Andrew Murray has fallen out with Seumas Milne and Karie Murphy. Unite are denying that Murray is set to quit…

Meanwhile, John McDonnell is seeking a new spokesman after some trouble at Mills. His current spinner, the universally popular Lobby favourite James Mills, is now focusing on comms for rest of the Shadow Treasury team. There is speculation that McDonnell’s policy chief James Meadway is also being sidelined. One to watch…
