Amazingly, the Labour party’s chief whip, Jacquie (please like me) Smith has just been on Sky news defending Ruth Kelly. Chief whips never do media; they are always quiet, in the background.
That says one thing…… we’re getting desperate, it’s time to get this off the air waves because it’s indefensible.
Right now the Labour spin machine will be frantically trying to re-hash or re-launch some initative or other to announce and knock this story out of the news.
Somehow I think this one may come back to haunt them over and over again.
