Minister Mauls Guardian

That extra million votes that the LibDems picked up in May was more to do with Cleggmania than the Guardian’s lukewarm endorsement but it’s nice to know their support was appreciated.

While it was hardly Tony Woodley shredding a copy of The Sun from the podium, Paul Burstow lashed out the “spreader of misinformation and lies”. Arguably a fair assessment of the last bastion of print leftism, but unfortunately for the Health Minister, Newsnight’s beady eyed Michael Crick spied him briefing the very same newspaper this morning.

What was he passing on, misinformation or lies?

Quote of the Day

The Daily Mirror has heard that at the shadow cabinet meeting, Nick Brown lost his train of thought so John McDonnell handed over a piece of paper to help out.

Brown: “You’re really helpful“.

McDonnell: “Yes I am. But it would be great if somebody could tell Skwawkbox that“.
