Claiming an “exclusive” (although the Mail has already lifted the copy), the piece tells “Shamed MP’s ex labels Danczuk ‘despicable’ in light of texts he sent to young girl - and threatens to bring down his political career with huge secret … THE first wife of sex text shame MP Simon Danczuk last night threatened to destroy his political career … Horrified Sonia Rossington, 39, branded her 49-year-old former husband “despicable” and an embarrassment to his children”. And there was more.
So who would claim the credit - or take the blame, depending on your stance - when Danczuk is finally caused to step down as an MP? It could only be the Sun … couldn’t it? Well, no it couldn’t - not according to the Sun. In an editorial yesterday titled “You Dan fool” (geddit?!?!?), readers are told “Simon Danczuk is a good, campaigning Labour MP with more grasp of what drives ordinary voters than his party’s leaders”. Do go on.
