Deputy leader’s meeting with strategist of new centrist group raises questions about his recent behaviour
Labour deputy leader Tom Watson’s recent public comments and his amplification of the centrist quitters’ significance in the Labour Party are under a new spotlight after he was seen meeting “key strategist behind the plan for a new centrist party” Philip Collins last night.
Watson’s office failed to answer the phone when the SKWAWKBOX tried to reach him for comment, so the following questions have been sent for an urgent response:
- What did you discuss with Mr Collins?
- Is it appropriate for the Labour deputy leader to have such a meeting?
- Did Collins have any input to the video you put out immediately after the IG group quit?
Will he answer?
