Another Friend from the North East?

Say hello to Kevan Jones, the Labour MP for Durham north. I've been wondering all day if he knows David Abrahams or not. What I do know is that he signed Harriet Harman's nominations paper. Maybe she should have invited him out to dinner in Westminster and seen if he knew who that cheque for £5000 was really from? They could have found a booth somewhere so no one saw them and whispered.

Update: Fixed typos and appalling sentence construction

Nice one Dizzy. Have some friends in The North then?

You are not saying that Kev advised Harriet on how to reduce her campaign overdraft, are you. You are not implying that Kev understood the Abrahams £ routemap are you? Surely you are not implying some sort of collusion between good looking Kev and the not unattractive Harriet?

I am just too nosy, I am.

Isn't Kevan a former Newcastle councillor? I would be amazed if he didn't know the elusive Mr. Abrahams/Martin

Jack De Manio could never get the time right, similarly, your typo's are one of your most endearing qualities...(apart from the top quality nature of your posts).
Dizzy You are a star !!

Curious, but I keep finding myself humming 'The Battle Hymn of the Republic'...

I heard Mr Jones and Mr Abrahams are both confirmed bachelors who enjoy musical theatre. Perhaps they know each other better than you think.

Kevan Jones was indeed a Newcastle city councillor before he became an MP. That does not necessarily mean he knew Abrahams but I agree it seems more than possible. Bennie Abrahams, David's father, was Lord Mayor of the city in the early 1980s but his time on the council predated that of Jones by about ten years.

"Between 1990 and 2001 Kevan served as a councillor on Newcastle City Council, where he was deputy leader, Cabinet member for development, Chief Whip and committee chairman on development and transport and public health."

Unfix the typo thingie Dizzie. Half the fun (in quieter times) is spoting them and making an attempt at humour.
Don't forget that we have plenty of time to proof read our submissions. You haven't.
Don't depend on the spell checker though as this ditty shows.

Eye halve a spelling chequer
It came with my pea sea
It plainly marques four my revue
Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.

Eye strike a quay and type a word
And weight four it two say
Weather eye am wrong oar write
It shows me strait a weigh.

As soon as a mist ache is maid
It nose bee fore two long
And eye can put the error rite
Its really ever wrong.

Eye have run this poem threw it
I am shore your pleased two no
It’s letter perfect in it's weigh
My chequer tolled me sew.
