And there's more

Newsnight ran a little more on the next former Tory chairman Caroline Spelman.

They've twigged that she wasn't advertising her palatial Kent home as her Meriden constituency office, although she's let everyone believe that her nanny was working for her in the constituency. Not that she's said that - she's just not disabused them of that view.

Dodds, her campaign literature and her entry in Who's Who 1997 - not to mention her website tonight all list the Manor Road address. Rumour reaches me that the Tories have been spinning the line that she actually moved to Meriden sometime in late 1997, while the truth is that the family company Spelman and Cormack Associates recorded a change of director's address from the 15 December 1998 to an address in Dorridge. Curiously, the company had been parked since June that year at another address in Blackheath, London - not the home address in Kent.
I don't think we've heard the last of this yet.
