SHAC Attacks Go Mainstream – You Read It Here First

Back in November Guido wrote that he was “still waiting for the first fearless broadsheet political editor to detail to his readers, in a lengthy article” the tensions between Steve Hilton and Andy Coulson which run deep and throughout Whitehall. Roughly speaking with some exceptions, policy SpAds are mainly loyal to Hilton and press SpAds are loyal to Coulson.

Guido has been highlighting the spats between the two, which by and large go unreported, despite being well known to Lobby journalists with connections to the Tories.  The reason you don’t get to read about them is that Hilton and Coulson are key sources for the lazier type of hack who fears that if they write about them, they won’t be privy to the briefings and titbits they hand out.  It turns out that the first political editor to risk being frozen out is the Mail on Sunday’s Simon Walters.
