My one big question on this Monday morning; why is there no trace of this story anywhere other than the Hindu Newspaper website?!?
Labour running a 'dirty tricks' department
Britain's ruling Labour Party has been accused of running a "dirty tricks department" whose victims are said to have included not only leading Opposition figures, but some of the Government's own prominent members, including the Deputy Prime Minister, John Prescott.
The existence of the "Attack Unit", set up when Labour was in Opposition, is admitted by the party but claims that it is used only to rebut Tory propaganda. A report in The Sunday Times, however, listed specific instances of "muck-raking" prompting the Tory shadow deputy prime minister, David Davis, to demand an inquiry.
"The alleged activities of the Labour Party's so-called Attack Unit are a matter of serious public concern," he said. His party colleague and shadow home secretary, Michael Howard, who is alleged to have been one of its victims wanted to know whether the Prime Minister, Tony Blair, was aware of what was going on.
Mr. Howard, who had a torrid time denying an alleged love affair with a constituent when he was Home Secretary in the Tory Government, said: "I was aware that a smear was circulated about me but I had no idea it came from the Labour Party."
