It looks like Draper has been well and truly shackled by the Labour powers that be. Having tried to start a war with me and Guido Fawkes, he then moved onto Alex Hilton. He reportedly issued verbal threats against Hilton, warning him that unless Hilton withdrew from MessageSpace and stopped being a friend of Guido Fawkes, he would trash his relationship in the Labour Party. Hilton fought back and, without actually naming Draper, posted on LabourHome [posts now deleted] that he had been threatened. Oh how these boys must miss their student union days.
Anyway, this morning, it appears that Draper was carpeted and told to back down. This afternoon he and Hilton issued THIS comradely statement on their respective websites. So, two apologies in three days for Draper. Not bad going.
They say things come in threes. All he has to do now is apologise to me for accusing me of condoning racism, and all will be well with the world. He knows he went too far. Enough of his own colleagues have told him so. But I'm not holding my breath.
