Imagine Guido’s surprise when strolling home from lunch through Westminster to spot Ed Miliband’s Director of Strategy Greg Beales emerging from a lunchtime meeting with Nigel Farage’s Head of Media Alexandra Phillips.
Beales tells Guido: “I’m not defecting.”
A UKIP source says “what meeting?”.
Now why doesn’t that surprise me? As UKIP’s raison d’être is to stop the Tories, it is only natural for them to be talking to their fellow self serving hypocrites.
