Gordon Wanted to Set an Etonian to Fight an Etonian

On Sunday the Mail reported that Gordon Brown was looking for someone to replace the piss-poor, soon to be side-lined Simon Lewis.  Lewis is a former press secretary to the Queen and brother of the Daily Telegraph editor, Will Lewis.  He was recommended for the job as Gordon’s spin-doctor by the friend-of-Mandy power-lobbyist Roland Rudd.  He has not worked out with the Lobby or changed the negative narrative pervading Gordon.

patrick_hennessyGordon is in desperation seeking someone new to be his Alastair Campbell and make up for the loss of Damian McBride.  He is having difficulty finding takers and has been rebuffed thrice by people he has offered the job – including once the MoS reported by the political editor of a newspaper. It turns out that the political editor was not Damian McBride’s mate Kevin Maguire – Ephraim Hardcastle in the Mail reports* that Gordon wanted something a bit more classy, and begged Old Etonian Patrick Hennessy of the Sunday Telegraph to take on his fellow Etonians.  Floreat Etona…

*Attribution.  Something Ephraim should learn to do.
