Labour’s chief whip lobbying links

Bell Pottinger lobbying chief Peter Bingle has been ruing the demise of his close pal Nick Brown, following the news that Labour’s new leader no longer wants Brown as chief whip.

‘By persuading Nick Brown not to stand he [Ed Miliband] has created a not very positive tension between himself and the PLP,’ mused a broken Bingle this week.

But fear not! The links between the Labour chief whip and the lobbying industry are not completely severed.

The new chief whip, Rosie Winterton, is a good pal of Connect Public Affairs boss Gill Morris, having helped Morris to set up the agency some years ago.

Clearly, Bingle and Morris – who clashed bitterly over the issue of lobbying transparency – have something in common after all.
