‘Don’t believe what you read about me in Skwawkbox’, participant tells national meeting of Labour regional executive committees
During a national meeting recently, Skwawkbox understands that a certain figure recently the subject of a Skwawkbox exposé interjected spontaneously to tell the virtual gathering that they shouldn’t believe anything Skwawkbox had published about him/her.
No, on the contrary, that person’s closeness to right-wingers at Labour’s regional office and elsewhere was entirely down to ‘my personal charm’ (allegedly a direct quote), relationship-building skills – and the apparent awareness across all Labour factions of how ‘useful’ the person is to the party.
The response of the rest of the meeting to the comments was not recorded, but above is an artist’s impression of the reaction that might follows the kind of self-awareness failure it would take to boast of your own ‘personal charm’.
The phrase ‘living in someone’s head rent-free’ also springs to mind for some reason.
