Exclusive: Leadsom “A Liability” “Might Break Laws’ Record”
HS2 Vote: “She Doesn’t Get to Abstain”

dt-hs2Late on Friday night there was a panic in the Treasury and the Department of Transport when The Telegraph published pledges, taken from her own website, by the newly appointed Treasury minister Andrea Leadsom to oppose HS2. Here is the email exchange between Rupert Harrison, George Osborne’s SpAd who is also known as Osborne’s brain, Julian Glover, the boyfriend of The Times commentator Matthew Parris who was a former Guardian commentator turned Cameron speechwriter and is now a Special Adviser at the Department of Transport.  Tom Kelly who was Blair’s Downing Street spokesman now spinning for HS2. The other names are assorted SpAds and spinners.

al-no-hs2What this reveals is that either Andrea Leadsom betrays her promises to her constituents or she faces down George Osborne.

If she goes missing from the HS2 vote tonight she has successfully defied the Chancellor she once told to “f*** off“, again… 

N.B. Emails have been partially redacted. Best read from bottom up. 

UPDATE:  Treasury is denying Rupert Harrison received the last email.

I told you she’s a liability – humiliating George two weeks in. Might break Laws’ record..

Let’s kill it, but she doesn’t get to abstain. Agreed?

Nothing on PA as yet
Have spoken to HMT they are looking to push this to their SPADS (Rupert Harrison) to deal with it and are not planning to issue a formal HMT response but I have shared Wendy’s line with them and no10.
They have had bids from Today programme and calls from News channel

Sounds sensible, I think if we get calls we can pass onto you. I think if PA pick up on it we could use the following, but we’ll flag before we issue.

Paul if you can let Treasury know this would be the tenor of our line.

Ben obs you may want to talk to Treasury spads. If Deighton does do bids Monday he will get asked about this, but i’m sure he’ll deal with it sensibly.


A Department for Transport spokesperson said:

“HS2 has cross party support because it is a once in a generation opportunity to create jobs and develop skills, provide the extra space we need on our rail network for commuters and freight and better connect our northern and midland cities. We are on track for spades in the ground by 2017.”

Sounds sensible – I think given it is quite political may be simplest to pass calls on to me, which I am happy to take. The article itself acknowledges that collective responsibility is a standard and well known principle of british politics and her views are well known.

Thanks Ben, seen that Paul just sending round a screen grab of the front page.
Basically they’ve taken comments made by the Minister prior to her becoming a Minister.
I think if asked we should use a standard statement making clear that there is cross party support for the project.
We’ve had no calls so far and no bids from broadcast. We’ll keep and eye on PA.

    Best wait until the Scottish referendum result. It’seems an eye catching idea that Salmond might like to use to show links with the rUK remain tangible and strong.

    At the same time in 1998 as complaints were made about the Angell Home in Brixton,
    “moment of madness” Ron Davis resigned from the cabinet as did Peter Mandelsohn, although the events were no doubt unrelated. George Robertson resigned a few months later. Chris Smith remained until 2005.

    ” …-assorted spads and spinners “” !!!

    Can you imagine the scene at the jobcentre

    Previous occupations?

    Er …Spad … before that I was a spinner .

    Don ‘ t think We ve ever cone across these job descriptions before here at the Employment Dept .

    Ohh …. this isn ‘ t employment as such we just get paid by taxpayers for lounging around Whitehall at all hours trying to dream up crises which we can then solve ….. or not as tge case may be.

    I seeee…. is a spad similar to a spud but more refined ?

    Er well yes … just as a spinner is not quite a winner … just a lot dimmer.

    Thank you Sir .. your first Giro will arrive next week.

    Have all these people on the public payroll really got nothing better to do than send each other endless emails about this piffle? So much for working in politics to serve the public.
