No stain on Wes

Wes Streeting MP, whose constituency includes a sizeable chunk of Wansteadium readership, has spiked scurrilous rumours that a kebab was left festering unnoticed in his dinner jacket pocket for weeks.

He was said to have found the forgotten kebab when he took his suit out of the wardrobe. The Times ran the story in its diary column during the week, based on a student source.

But Wes tweeted that the story had been somewhat blown up – it was not a kebab in the pocket, he said, but rather just a stain on sleeve. That’s cleared that up.
