CRD – Anyone There?

Unconfirmed rumours of a morning of the long knives…

Do the Tories really need a research department, can’t they just outsource it to the Cameroonie think-tanks; Policy Exchange and the Globalisation Institute?

UPDATE : Febrile rumours swirling around include that they might try to re-site CCHQ oop North or at least split it up. A lot of the mailshot and admin functions could be done on low rent premises in Leeds or Manchester. That would really upset the nice boys and girls even if it were good for their souls and the party. New Labour tried a similar tactic to get rid of all their dross HQ staff. Could be clever politics.
