SO, who really powered Glenda Jackson’s 42 vote win in Hampstead and Kilburn last year? The local party? The councillors? Election agent David Collins? Glenda, herself?
According to Bell Pottinger, the “key” man was Dan Conway, who has just joined the public affairs company as a consultant. Not one mention of him in all of the reams of coverage in the locals and the nationals about Glenda’s desperate fight for survival against the Tories and the Lib Dems, he must have moved in mysterious ways. I’d be eager to know how he swayed London’s closest constituency: Dan – fancy an interview?
