Helps New Labour find gloss

Wednesday 15 July 1998 @ 2:00 - GMT

John Reid, described by the London Times newspaper on July 13 as "the exotic former manager of Sir Elton John" will be working for the British Labour Party.

 

Multi-millionnaire Reid is expected to provide "much needed gloss to (Labour's) tarnished image."

 

Reid reportedly takes the credit for transforming Elton into the "Liberace of rock", the Times reported. He's a close friend of Margaret McDonagh, the Labour Party's deputy general secretary. "Mr Reid won't be an active member politically, but he will give them his support in other ways," a Reid worker told the newspaper.
