The WhatsApp message sent by a senior Labour press officer could hardly have been clearer.

Asked by the Daily Mail if the party’s deputy leader Angela Rayner had been present at the Durham Miners Hall the evening Sir Keir Starmer enjoyed a beer with local MP Mary Foy and other comrades, the spokesman replied categorically: ‘Angela wasn’t there.’

But now that simple claim has been undermined, ironically by Labour’s own digital campaigning prowess.
Last night, in an astonishing volte-face, Labour belatedly admitted that Mrs Rayner had been there, but gave no further details.

The party’s about-turn came after a Mail investigation had already established that despite the denials, the party’s deputy leader had been in the Miners Hall.

I Call Bull: They really are all as bad as each other really aren't they? What an absolute shambles of a Party labour have turned into. Too weak to attack the Tories most of the time and then behaving (almost) as badly as them during lockdown.

She must have known that eventually she would have been found out?

All as bad as each other and trying to make us believe that they are looking after OUR best interests when really they are just a bunch of self serving low lives

Oh dear, and by his own standards Kneel Starmer will have to resign if this is found to have broken the rules in place at the time.
