The News is Not News

Guido was off getting trashed so missed this “live”, but Benedict Brogan* has decoded it for us all.

At lunchtime Nick Robinson told us that David Miliband was not standing for leader. Something Miliband tells us weekly. This time it was news. Benedict thinks that this time Miliband was saying – “No fucking way am I standing. End of. Drop it. Got it?”

Clear?

*Likely to soon supplant Iain Dale as the second best political blogger going – if Iain doesn’t watch it.

‘He persuaded me to do this. He said you need to soften your image. So do Mumsnet and do this…. I’m trying to soften my image.’
