Publisher fights man and dog

BIZARRE scenes at Labour’s annual conference in Brighton, as Iain Dale – LBC radio host and political publisher – fought a man called Stuart (and his dog called Stuart) over an anti-nuclear protest on breakfast TV.

Dale is responsible for the memoirs of ex-Labour spin doctor Damian McBride. But when his client appeared on ITV yesterday, veteran protester Stuart Holmes tried to disrupt the shot by holding up a “No Nuke’s” [sic] sign.

Dale intervened and minutes later was rolling around on the floor with Holmes and his eponymous pet.

Holmes has form – he was present on every single day of the Vicky Pryce and Chris Huhne trials, ruining almost every photo.
