Smacked Bottom For Press Gazette

Press Gazette’s scoop on Friday that Guardian hack Nick Davies is off to America will remain exclusive. They reported that the paper’s “US invasion gathers pace” as “Nick Davies joins Paul Lewis Stateside” in a now pulled piece.

No need to get the PCC involved this time, but still. Ouch.

    From Yvoire I plan to travel onto Thonon-les-Bains later this afternoon. I hear from one of the townsfolk here that Restaurant Le Prieuré maybe willing to part with a few bottles of Petrus Pomerol 1998. It’s certainly worth seeking out as Le Prieuré serves Confit de Canard, a particular favorite of mine and far superior to the standard fare the natives eat.

And yet even I can see little Ned is less effective than an electric can opener in the desert. Without a can …or summint like that…IM no good ith me worms as you all know…

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
