Things must be getting bad for Miliband when even the most loyal of apparatchiks are beginning to lose faith. Guido hears readers’ favorite, and Ed’s campaign press officer, Kenny Young is telling people he’s down in the dumps and disillusioned. Having been demoted to Press Office Manager, with the emphasis on the manager, apparently Kenny’s heart isn’t in it as much as it once was. With the constant failure to get on the front foot and set the agenda, even Ed’s loyal gatekeeper and former SpAd Polly Billington is said to be exasperated. Time to brush off those CVs…
Sounds like Tom Baldwin isn’t exactly top of his game either:
I saw Tom Baldwin earlier in PCH. Sunken eyes darting around as he chewed maniacally on a piece of gum. All in all he looked like sh*t.—

Guido would be crying into his pint too..
UPDATE: Jon Craig has also noticed the glum faces on the Labour press team. Do these progressives need Prozac?
Glum faces among Labour spin doctors on spinners'' bench in Press Gallery as Cameron repeatedly quotes Tony Blair in PMQs. Cheer up, chaps!—
