Charlie Whelan - why the blog silence?
I thought one of the most politically significant stories at Labour Party Conference was the comeback of the PM's former spinner Charlie Whelan to run the new merged Unite's political operation.
This surely sends some massive signals about the kind of relationship brothers Derek and Tony want with Gordon Brown.
But all the coverage I can find that it got was a piece on Sky and a mention in a couple of newspaper gossip columns. In the Labour blogosphere, nothing. No mentions whatsover.
Strange because I have a hunch Brother Charlie is going to be playing a huge role in the future internal dynamics of the Labour Party.
