Labour Home has put out a signal to all on the left to steer clear of story about Nigel Waterson having been arrested for allegedly assaulting his children. Says Alex Hilton:
Comrades, I have just heard the details of why Tory MP Nigel Waterson was involved with the police recently. I'm afraid it's not my place to divulge these details but I'd be grateful if you took my word for it that this is not a matter we should be writing about. I will be deleting all posts about this issue. Please do email me if this causes you any concern.
It looks a bit late to me though. This particular horse seems already to have bolted:
THE CROOK, THE WIFEBEATER and THE VIOLENT BULLY…….TODAY’S TORIES.. says Ian bone
Nigel Waterson thrashes kids said Recess Monkey (Now deleted)
Tory MP arrested in child abuse scandal said Bob Piper
Tory Shadow minister arrested for assaulting children said Labour Home
It's been said before that you post in haste and repent at leisure. It's particularly funny to see Recess Monkey getting this basic tenet of blogging wrong again. Remember the Thatcher obituary? Some people never learn.
