|Hunt: "...pushy little media tart"|
Someone called Gary Elsby, who is the local Labour party secretary apparently, is so angry, Toby Young reports, that he's now threatening to stand against Hunt as an independent. Marvellous.
Anyway, here's Young on Hunt:
Ouch! But, you know, the truth often hurts, right?I don’t think there’s anything exceptionally ghastly about Tristram Hunt. He’s clearly a pushy little media tart with an eye to the main chance, but that hardly makes him unusual within the modern Labour Party.
The Spectator has an interesting scoop on the prospective anti-Hunt campaigner, Gary Elsby. He's a complete loony, and a very unpleasant one, too.
Curious bunch, these Labourists. Curious and corrupt.
