Is the Unzipper About to be Unzipped?

This is the cover of the Unzipped book which is obsessing Westminster at the moment. I had an email from some cheeky bugger at the Evening Standard Londoner's Diary today asking if I knew who it was. Like I'd hand the story to him on a plate. However, I do have a couple of names I am investigating. Sadly none of them household ones. Even in their own household.

why did they put a red rosette on the men on the cover? Shouldn't he be a Tory?

Andrea, for some reason it IS blue on the image I resized but it has come out red on the blog. Fragen Sie mich nicht warum...

Iain - is it you? Is this game of hide and seek all a clever ruse?

Weeks of being trailed by the political blogs made me rush to my desk and buy this from Amazon. I was a fan of kitchen confidential and Air Babylon and thought it would be good to read.

Apart from a a bit of buggery and the unedifying thought of middle aged ex public school boys lying next to each other with flacid white skin and black socks this book did not shock at all.

It was nothing more than a list of prostitutes this bloke had shagged. The fact he happened to be a lobbyist and went to party conferences has got nothing to do with it. He could have been a used car salesman, or ran a successful on-line political book site.

Imagine Gary Glitter getting this kind of hype for his filth.

I want to know that man's identity so I can go round his house and ask his missus for my money back.

Well, it wasn't me. This is the only novel I've ever had published properly:

Thanks for that image, even worse than the photo published by Guido showing Tony Booths daughter in a swim suit )+:
Im no fan of Athenian practises but looking at that picture made me realise why some chaps may go that way.

He didn't take his socks off? He deserves to be outed; he deserves to be drawn and quartered! Go for it!
