Peter Hain leak
Tory blogger Guido Fawkes has obtained Peter Hain's team's campaign plan for the deputy leadership.
I'm sticking a link into it here as I doubt many of my Labour readers sully themselves with visiting Guido's site:
It looks real to me given some of the names listed.
It's worth a read, mainly to marvel at the foolishness of someone typing up a list of the "campaign team" that includes a number of full-time Labour Party regional staff - the terms and conditions of whose employment prohibit them from interfering in the internal elections they referee -one hopes they are being badly served by this document implying something that isn't true...
and rather fewer actual Labour Party activists of the not-on-the-payroll variety.
Other howlers include:
"Hywel Francis - Aberavon – one of the safest Labour seats in the UK, it also has a long and impressive pedigree of producing Labour politicians, including Ramsay Macdonald."
(I bet Hywel is chuffed by that comparison ...)
and the number that say "cannot go public"...
