Carter Airbushes Bunker Time from CV

Stephen Carter, who was reduced to tears by Gordon’s bullying before being bought off with a peerage for his silence, has landed new job. Though it seems the new head of comms for tech giants Alcatel-Lucent has airbrushed out his time in the bunker from his CV.  Perhaps he doesn’t want to be professionally associated with Gordon’s regime. Hardly surprising given how Rawnsley (on page 546 of The End of the Party) described Carter’s treatment by McBride and Gordon:

“He was undermined from the start by the old Brown clique. He bumped into Damian McBride, who saw him as a threat,” says another of Brown’s aides. “It was a turf thing.  Stephen was a really nice bloke,” comments one civil servant. “He just didn’t know what he was letting himself in for. They made a decision to f**k this guy. By April, it was transparent to everyone in the building that this guy was dead.””

There is a sense of satisfaction that Carter is now earning hundreds of thousands, while McBride is picking up litter in a playground.
