More “Impeccable Advice” Coulson Says Bring Back Fox, Ignore Heywood

Andy Coulson offers more words of wisdom for Dave in GQ this morning. Stage eight of his masterplan calls for Liam Fox to be brought back in from the cold:

“Unlike the rarely effective but always politically flawed Nigel Farage, when it comes to immigration he should deal in fact and not the stoking of irrational fears. William Hague is the man to take on and beat Farage and persuade those unloved Tories feeling the pull of UKIP to stand firm. He should be tasked with devising and leading the strategy against the party and enlist the currently under-employed Liam Fox to help.”

There are some choice words for “Sir Jeremy Who-wood” too:

“It’s time for the prime minister to wean himself off the company of the big brains in the civil service and leave himself more room to operate politically. The reforms are well underway. Progress should be carefully monitored but the hard yards in the company of Cabinet Secretary Sir Jeremy Heywood et al for David are already nearing their end – at least until after the election. The prime minister should spend more time with the people who might actually help win in 2015 rather than senior civil servants who have revelled in the power and professional satisfaction the coalition has brought them. I suspect Sir Jeremy and co would rather enjoy five more years of the same.”

He goes on to call Clegg “a bit of a minger”. As Boris said, “impeccable” advice…
