Good Day to Bury Bad News

So as Andy Parsons and Nicky Woodhouse, David Cameron’s personal photographer and video staff are removed from the civil service pay-roll and put back on the CCHQ pay-roll where they belong, you can expect a swath of other embarrassing or negative stories to slip out today as the nation stifles a laugh as the BBC presenters keep forgetting that Kate is now Catherine…

If it wasnt for the royal wedding Labour would be making hay over the fact that the PM has rightfully backtracked and seen, at this time of cuts, that someone to keep his bald spot out of shot should not be paid for by the taxpayer. Not that it it’s an excuse, but as William Green reminds us, lest we forget Gordon had his own civil service image people.

UPDATE: The Wall Street Journal’s Iain Martin also noticed the strange correlation between between the wedding news and bad news from Downing Street.

Quote of the Day

Peter Mandelson tells Emma Barnett…

“I think that Jeremy Corbyn himself should search his conscience and ask himself whether he’s the best person to lead the Labour Party into the general election with the best chance of success for the party.”
