Matt Withers' column in today's Wales on Sunday draws heavily on blogs for its inspiration including an interesting article on links between the eight Labour Government resignees which bears an uncanny resemblance to this post on Dizzy Thinks.

Matt correctly identifies that former Defence Minister Tom Watson shares an office in the House of Commons with Alyn and Deeside MP, Mark Tami. Khalid Mahmood, Sion Simon, Mark Tami, Wayne David and Ian Lucas are all linked through Amicus. Whilst Watson, Mahmood and Simon are also West Midlands MPs. Telford MP, David Wright also has his constituency in the West Midlands.

Both Matt Withers and Dizzy identify Hartlepool MP, Iain Wright, as the flatmate of Tom Watson, but there is another connection as well and that is that Watson went up to help run the Hartlepool by-election before inexplicably finding more urgent business elsewhere. Tom Watson also helped to run Chris Moles' by-election campaign in Ipswich.

It is funny how great minds think alike so often.
Such is life!
Thanks for finding the link. Unbelievable, he even kept the "..." pauses in the same place!
My head is hanging in shame. I've apologised...
