The alleged "News Editor" of the Guido Fawkes blog can be seen having the most terrible falling out with Mark Clarke
So it was no more than chance that the Fawkes blog posted “Clark Complainant Backed Him To Be MP Four Months Ago” on Thursday afternoon, telling readers “Patrick Sullivan is the Tory activist who sombrely told Newsnight he had complained about Mark Clarke’s behaviour as far back as 2010. He also featured heavily in the Mail on Sunday, claiming Clarke subjected him to a ‘terrifying ambush with two henchmen’ last week”.
Guess who's coming to dinner, Fawkes folks
So who was invited? No prizes for guessing that Mark Clarke was one of them. Not only that, his name appears on the guest list as “Mark Clarke MP”. We know this as Peter Oborne took away a copy of that list and later published it at the Telegraph. So in October last year, Staines and Cole were running an in-joke suggesting their pal Clarke was potential MP material - the same thing for which Staines has now kicked Sullivan.
