"A rumor that Derek has been asked to handover control of Labourlist by influential Labour party insiders is yet to be confirmed."
Could this be the same Philip Honour that is a big name in Labour Student circles and is also a contributer to LabourList by any chance?
If Labour List has politely fired Draper then, for want of a better phrase, "things can only get better" for the site. Having said this, could it possibly be that there is a deep split within the ranks of the site and Labour Party about the Internet strategy?
UPDATE: How interesting, Philiphonour has applied to change his username on Wikipedia this morning to Londonwriter1984 for reasons of anonymity.
Can't imagine why!
Hat Tip: Via comment from H17
UPDATE II: Well his account has been changed and he got told off for his edit.
I've changed your username.
