Guido points out that Tom Watson MP, who describes himself as "an overweight opinionated member of parliament", should probably add the phrase "lying bastard" in there somewhere.
With a reputation for accurate and balanced reporting to protect, Guido was troubled by this, perhaps Tom Watson was not a treacherous, lying plotter who met and connived with Brown on the eve of his coup attempt against Blair. Maybe he was not going to return to government under Brown. Guido offered to retract the allegation if he promised not to return to government.Tom said...
It shouldn't be neccesary but to amuse you: I promise never to return to government. Good enough?

Tom Watson has rejoined the government as a junior whip. Therefore, one can say, quite categorically, that Tom Watson is a mendacious, hypocritical bastard with all of the principles of a particularly untrustworthy ocelot.
But then he's an MP: really, what did we expect?
