I understand that several more mobile phones have been destroyed in Number Ten this week following the Mail on Sunday's reporting of Gordon Brown's press briefing on the plane back from America last week (reported by Guido HERE). He has, I can reveal, ordered a leak enquiry to find out who told the Mail on Sunday about the briefing, in which he categorically denied that the 10p tax issue was a problem, that there were any losers or that there were any rebels. As the MoS was not on the plane they felt unconstrained by the lobby rules governing the briefing. Brown's henchmen (in the shape of Damien McBride) are threatening fire and brimstone and demanding the MoS source is named, shamed and sacked.
Wouldn't you have thought they might have something better to do than emulate Jim Hacker?
