The Blair documentary was quite interesting last night. Tony was obviously a scholar of old Yes Minister episodes. He bounced Gordon Brown into increasing health spending by making a public commitment on an episode of Frost (like Jim Hacker and the public access to the government information database).
And Ed Balls was revealed to be a man behind various rebellions – encouraging Ian Gibson in his top up fees rebellion (a conversation Balls cannot recall – sadly off camera so we didn’t see his Blinky Ben impression as the heat turns up). That doc and yesterday’s news suggested another bad day for Prudence. I mentioned the News of the Screws report yesterday about Fiona Phillips. Well, the Guardian reports this morning that the Number 10 press office yesterday confirmed that Fiona Phillips had been offered a job assisting the government. Which celebrities should Prudence the Presbyterian have considered before he reached GMTV’s intellectual powerhouse?
