A Change of Spin tactics by Gordon Brown's Little Helpers
You'll all no doubt be releived to hear that I am safely ensconced in the Watergate. I haven't caught up on the budget details yet, but one little snippet I thought I'd share with you is this. I'm told that immediately after each of Gordon Brown's previous budgets his little helpers would scurry round the Press Gallery spinning away like mad. But they didn't do that this year. Instead they waited until David Cameron had finished in the hope that he would have made some kind of giant cock up which they could take political advantage of. I have no idea yet what happened but one Tory MP has told me that Cameron was like an Apache helicopter bombing a second world war tank.
