Mike Hancock MP Breaks Silence Over 'Former Friend' Vernon Jackson.

TBG smelt a rat at the weekend when Gerald Vernon Jackson referred to Mike Hancock as his "former friend" in a local Portsmouth rag and after theblueguerilla's sensational selection story went viral.

Today the rat has finally come to life. Hancock is reported to have said - "I have nothing to say about Gerald Vernon Jackson. When I say it I will say it publicly at the appropriate time." Hardly an endorsement.

Radio Solent yesterday broadcast an interview with Mike Hancock, which apparently culminated in him hanging up on interviewer Jessica Parker.

A seemingly slurred Mike Hancock has also refused to rule out re-standing for the Portsmouth South seat as an Independent.
