Another Labour blog bites the dust. Tom Watson MP has, surprise surprise, rejoined the government. Since his unfortunate resignation last year he has become a prolific blogger, but going back to the Whips' Office will mean that he has to zip it. Being put back on the lowestr rung of the ladder - Assistant Government Whip - is a pretty poor reward for doing his Master's bidding and launching tha abortive coup against Tony Blair last September. The least he could have expected was a PUSS post in a department.
Tom's last post was on Tuesday. Did it sound the last post for his blog? I do hope not. Sure, if you;re a whip you can't say whaty you are able to as a backbencher, but at least the rest of us can have some fun encouraging you to!
UPDATE: Quick quiz: Which Labour MP promised NEVER to return to government. Answer? Yes, you guessed right - Tom Watson. Guido has the gory details HERE.
