James Purnell's new 'workfare' proposals were leaked this afternoon. Within the last hour I have had three phone calls from different people with very different 'agendas' suggesting that the leak came from Number Ten. Another emailed suggested that this was James Purnell throwing down the leadership gauntlet. Could the two theories by any chance be connected?
UPDATE: Sky's Niall Paterson broke the story HERE, where you can read a copy of the leaked Welfare Reform paper.
