Not a good day to be on the Conservative by-election team by the looks of it.
In summary, we have legal action threatened over a magazine by David Cameron on Friday, which was within a matter of hours disowned by his media team (who told the media they were backing off it) and then today his candidate denied the threat was ever made. It wasn’t a very convincing denial mind you, what with it being made to the very journalist to whom Cameron had talked about the legal threat on Friday. Oops.
Oh and magazine publishers Archant are getting involved – but it’s a Conservative Henley magazine they’re taking action over.
Meanwhile, John Howell has been snapped using written notes to tell him how much a pint of milk, six eggs, a loaf of bread and a litre of petrol cost.
It has though been a good day for Stephen Kearney, who came through really strongly in the BBC Radio Berkshire hustings.
