It was today brought to my attention that ill-informed speculation on an internet forum has claimed that I am part of some organisation which is planning to launch a new party in Britain in the New Year.
Just for the record, this is totally false.
I am not a member of any party, and have no intention of starting any new party, anywhere, anytime.
The original source for these rumours -- the Brent Group website--have been contacted and they have taken down their page which made this allegation. I repeat: there is no truth to this story whatsoever.
May I wish all and sundry a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year....
