The Three Stooges
These are the three stooges put up by Team Brown to defend the Prime Minister against 'incoming' from Charles Clarke.
Is that really the best they could do? Failed junior minister Nigel Griffiths, an MP even I have never heard of called Helen Jones, and junior minister Phil Hope (who he?).
I suppose it is possible they were trying to downplay it all, but normally you'd have expected the big guns to be out there coming to the PM's aid. Perhaps they were all 'unavailable'.
And then the piece de resistance was Alastair Campbell's appearance on Newsnight. Not sure that helped...
