On the street where you (don't) live...

Net curtains twitched in Peckham last week when a camera crew turned up, yet again, outside Jacqui Smith’s sister Sara’s house. Jacqui’s “landlord” popped her head out of the window to establish the identity of the mysterious film-makers but didn’t have to wait too long to find out who they were. Sara hadn’t realised she was talking to her sister’s sworn enemy, Chris Galley, who is mounting a private prosecution against the former Home Secretary over her misuses of expenses.

Even with the sister’s tantrum edited out, the online video has managed to pull in over £8,000 worth of donations to Galley’s legal fees in just 24 hours.
