(not satire – it’s the UK press!)
Tom Watson MP has written a very interesting blog post, in which he raises some startling allegations against Daily Telegraph executives as well as what he calls “senior figures at Conservative Central Office”.
In the blog post, Mr Watson reveals that a Daily Telegraph correspondent claims the newspaper has been ‘sitting’ on emails sent to them in error by Conservative Party HQ concerning evidence of sitting MPs’ links to paedophilia.
Mr Watson also reveals that when he inquired to Telegraph executives about the emails, they tried to pressure him into stopping his inquiries.
You can read the full blogpost here:
Mr Watson’s main question is, are Daily Telegraph executives and senior Tories withholding information from the police about MPs’ links to paedophilia? Or are they involved in a smear campaign to discredit sitting Labour MPs in the run-up to the election?
And why did Telegraph executives try to pressure Mr Watson into dropping his inquiries into the whole murky matter?
Whatever the answers, if this isn’t a potential scandal in the making I don’t know what is.
