This has apparently included ensuring that there are no references to Clarke on the Fawkes blog other than those from late September this year. But there are still several posts live where the Fawkes folks lay into Bryn Phillips over his candidature in a City of London Corporation by-election in 2012, in the ward of Farringdon Within. The winning candidate on that occasion was Mark Clarke (see HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE).
The Great Guido isn't telling you about this ...
Where was The Great Guido then? Ah well,. Perhaps this was not unconnected to the continuing presence at the Fawkes blog of the odious flannelled fool Henry Cole, tame gofer to Staines until he left for the Sun in July this year, to continue his pretence that he is a Real Journalist. Master Cole may not like being reminded of the fact, but he was the one at the Fawkes blog closest to Mark Clarke.
... and certainly not about this
And while they’re at it, perhaps the Fawkes folks could explain why their follow-up to Newsnight’s exposé still describes Alexandra Paterson as Rob Halfon’s “lover”, despite the relationship having ended some months ago. Do they think that smearing Halfon by suggesting he got Ms Paterson the chairmanship of Conservative Future (CF) will hold up, when it’s blindingly obvious to everyone else that Clarke was driving the process?
