Is Peter Kilfoyle MP really that daft?

Peter Kilfoyle MP has put forward the following EDM:

"That this House notes the impending launch of a purportedly politically neutral magazine called Total Politics; notes that it is fronted by Iain Dale, a failed Conservative parliamentary candidate; further notes that it is being run from Lord Ashcroft's address in Cowley Street and that it is fronted by Lord Ashcroft; and calls upon hon. and right hon. Members to reject the free copies which will be sent to them in the near future."
Peter is well aware that Iain Dale is hiring staff from across the political spectrum in an attempt to create an un-biased magazine. This is surely just Peter having a dig at Lord Ashcroft. Does he think that his fellow Labour MPs are too dim to read the magazine and come to their own conclusions? Actually - he could have a point.

Last I checked 13 + Kilfoyle himself had, so yes they really are that "daft"

You'd have thought the best way to deal with this would have been to read it before attempting to stomp all over it.

Has Iain paid him for the publicity?

Glyn,

Good point, I think Iain owes him a drink.

Kilfoyle is an idiot.

Isn't the good Peter one of those MPs that believe that the great unwashed, like you and me, have no right to know what they spend money on? After all, he is elected and therefore owes no allegiance to anyone but his pocketbook as a result!

Peter Kilfoyle and daft in the same sentence is just about right, why anything this man says is ever paid so much as a cursory glance is always puzzling!
