I wonder whose bright idea it was to put David Willetts on Newsnight and Channel 4 News last night. Jon Snow cut him up and then regurgitated him for him to be stuffed by Paxo. If anything underlined the need for Andy Coulson to start before 9 July, that did. All it achieved was to give more ammunition for today's papers and extend the story by yet another day.
Mind you, that had already been achieved by The Bucks Examiner reporting a statement signed by all Buckinghamshire MPs, including John Bercow, welcoming the confirmation by Shadow Education Secretary David Willetts that a Conservative government would allow Buckinghamshire County Council to expand both grammar and upper school provision in the county to meet the needs of population growth. Read it HERE.
This would be the same John Bercow who appeared on GMTV last Sunday saying that it will be "electoral suicide" for the Tories to go on about grammar schools and that David Cameron's policy of "no more grammars" was absolutely right.
No, my mistake. Must be a different John Bercow! You couldn't make this up.
