Guido is Giving Yates a Book for Christmas

Demos think-tank founder Geoff Mulgan was Tony Blair’s chief policy guru from 1997 to 2004. He has a book out Good and Bad Power – The Ideals and Betrayals of Government.
The title is apt – flick to page 84 for an interesting admission from a man who, when he was at the centre of government, is known to have seen the odd honours list in his time “In later years the scarcely concealed sale of peerages to wealthy party donors, and the appointment of the party’s top donor – Lord Sainsbury – to ministerial office, did little to restore the British public’s confidence.” Oh really?

Clearly a copy of this admission should be sent to Scotland Yard sharpish. Any other suggestions for books for Yates of the Yard? Guido sent him the The Little Red Book of New Labour Sleaze months ago. Now what is Yates going to give Guido in return?
