How Will Winston Reply?

What Winston should do, is what he should have done all along. He should apologise for misleading Parliament and promise to be fully transparent in the future. Unfortunately this is not likely to happen. Instead we can expect bluster and threats. He will try and undermine Glenn's credibility. He will say that Glenn was speaking to his brother, or that someone else was using his cell phone. It is not going to be pretty. David Farrar has a look this morning at some of Winston's possible defences. Hooton covers similar territory and looks at the wider implications for Labour.
