Did Pesto Passo?

Since the new year it has become clear that Ed Miliband has upped his media game. Despite the obvious flaws in the Son of Brown, Bob Roberts and Tom Baldwin have begun the long process of shaping a message. You could say the two hacks have taken to their jobs much quicker than their boss, with Baldwin crafting lines in the back-room, leaving it to Bob to prowl the corridors and slap backs. However was this double act really Miliband’s first choice?

“Sky sources” work two ways and Guido hears Jon Craig, who wasn’t the happiest bunny at Sky last year, was talking to Team Ed but the idea fizzled out. More intriguing was the suggestion that “Mr. Exclusive“, and Darling favourite, Robert Peston had been approached. Guido spoke to Pesto earlier and despite adamant sources, he laughed heartily at the suggestion. “Of course I’ve not been in bloody talks with them.” But then he’d have to say that, wouldn’t he?
