“Hard-Left Labour group in drug shame as Sun investigation finds coke in loos at Corbyn bash … EXCLUSIVE: Detection wipes showed tell-tale traces at Momentum Xmas party in Brixton” screamed the headline. Had the Momentum membership and their hangers-on been lining up with their pal Charlie for a sniff? Well, while the Sun clearly wants its readers to believe that, Quinton’s story swiftly unravels.
Quinton would have to have demonstrated that the areas were free of the drug before the bash began. He didn’t. So he cannot pin his findings on Momentum, of whom the Sun sniffily concludes “Momentum declined to comment on our drug findings”. So what did Quinton do? He went to try and snitch Momentum to the main Labour Party press account (then he deleted the Tweet and thought nobody would notice).
