I think he was mis-quoted. When he asked "Is it the Prime Minister’s practice to take appointments with chinless scarf-wearers out of her diary after they have been put in there...?" he was clearly referring to a chinless smarm-wearer. He was talking about H2, Heather Simpson, the woman whose curt letter to Parliamentary Services insisting they settle the Pledge Card invoice "without further delay" contradicts every one of this Government's claims that PS themselves approved Labour's taxpayer-funded spending on the "centre-piece" of their campaign. As Southern Gent describes it:
Herr letter dated 17 November, is three months after the expenditure was incurred, two months after labour Party Secretary (Mike Williams) gave a written undertaking to include the expenditure in the party’s electoral return. And one month after the undertaking was reneged upon.Read the Herald article to find out just how deeply enmired in mud Bernard Darnton's case against the Helen Clark and Parliamentary Services has put this chinless wonder. And just imagine what that means for the mud still to come.
