Roberts Suited to the Job

New suits all round at Miliband’s press conference. While Tom Baldwin brooded at the back incessantly chewing gum, fellow new spinner Bob Roberts worked the room in a brand new blue whistle. Lots of smiling and winking at hacks . Though it wasn’t quite the fashion disaster his new boss is used to, someone might want to have a quiet word with Bob and suggest he cuts the white cotton sewing up the vents on the back of his jacket …

Though Guido has promised to be nice to James Macintyre this year, he did have to laugh when he heard that he had asked Team Ed for a job after he was kicked out of the New Statesman, it seems he will have to settle for writing the biography. At least he can still turn up to the press conferences. Guido noticed a couple of faces missing from the crowd though. No sign of  Sky’s Jon Craig and, despite the press conference being about bankers, why no Robert Peston?

Quote of the Day

President Trump on May’s Brexit deal:

“I would say that Brexit is Brexit. … The people voted to break it up. So I would imagine that’s what they’ll do. But maybe they’ll take a different route, I’m not sure that’s what they voted for.”
