Today The Little Red Book of New Labour Sleaze is published by Politico’s Media. This is a round-up of nine years of New Labour sleaze cataloguing over 100 examples. Listed on Amazon and appearing at a Waterstone’s check out near you the book is a product of the work of 70 odd bloggers led by Iain Dale and Guido Fawkes. I volunteered to help do a couple of pieces that appear in the book.
The project came together at the end of April, just as Blair was enjoying his own black Wednesday on 26th April. Iain Dale, a well-known Conservative writer and political blogger asked for help in putting the book together from the blogging community. I heard about his efforts through Conservative Home and joined in. Three weeks later a copy of the book lands on my doormat! Let’s see if it has any resonance.
