The scurrilous Guido Fawkes blog has been traducing Labour’s candidate for Ealing Central & Acton today. They say:
Rupa Huq, Labour’s candidate in Ealing, was also a fierce Blair critic, arguing the “legitimacy” of the Iraq War has been “demolished”.
The blog misrepresented what Huq said in an old blog post of her own.
Of course Rupa Huq has never said anything incendiary about Tony Blair and or Iraq. She rarely says anything at all, let alone anything controversial.
Rupa Huq is on the list of 106 target constituencies to which Tony Blair has given £1,000 per seat. So far two candidates have refused Blair’s cash.
We can assume that Huq will keep the money and keep quiet – that is what she does.
