As Guido has pointed out not only is bloggin' Tom Watson a breaker of his promises, but it seems clear that he's been given his pay-off in the failed coup last year, returning to Government as a paid whip. However, it's worth noting that it's not just bloggin' Tom that received relevant rewards for the display of student politics last year.
Tom's former flatmate, Iain Wright who also signed the infamous letter has been made Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department of Communities and Local Government. Meanwhile, Tom's co-plotter and former office sharing mate, Mark Tami has been made an assistant whip, as too has Wayne David.
I guess the other four - Sion Simon, Khalid Mahmood, David Wright and Chris Mole - must be wondering right now why they bothered.
