As Guido says: "He who lives by the smear...."
This could well turn out to be the political story of the year - and we've had some crackers already (TV porn, secret documents, dodgy expenses etc...). It's a good day to be an opposition blogger. I've got a lovely warm feeling inside and I'm wearing a permanent little smile. We in the blogosphere have known for a good while that Labour are a dirty party. The Tory Toff campaign was just the tip of an iceberg, and it looks like that iceberg is finally rising out of the water to show its large grimy bulk.
You can read all about this unfolding nightmare for Labour over at Guido's and Iain Dale's. I can't imagine Damian McBride keeping his job after this further embarrassment to Brown, and I think it may be the last we see of the dastardly Draper - oh dear, how sad, never mind... I would just like to say THANKS DEREK!!! what a cheese! Don't you just love Karma?
I'm going to enjoy watching this snowball today, and I can't wait for the details to be published in tomorrow's papers. Apparently there are some truly nasty smears contained in those emails passed between McBride and Draper. Downing Street are of course denying all knowledge - wouldn't it be embarrassing if that turned out to be yet another Labour lie?
