What's Tom Watson up too?

Over the past few years of reading Hansard you have a tendency to spot things that look out of the ordinary or slightly odd. If an MP starts asking the same question for example of all departments you know their compiling something for a reason. Thus I find myself asking the question: What is Tom Watson up too?

Over the past few days he has written to every single department asking whether they have any contracts with the think tank Demos. Demos, for those unaware, was founded in 1993 and was a key player in the development of "New Labour". However, in recent months it has started to push the "progressive conservatism" agenda and it now has Osborne and Willets on its Advisory board.

I can't help but think that there is some sort of ulterior motive to these questions, but then I am a cynic.

Links to questions: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10.
