Rivers of Blunder: Chris Bryant's Today Implosion

Last week Chris Bryant claimed the Home Office “can’t even get the basics right, stumbling from one shambles to another”, this morning it is safe to say that he has been taught a valuable lesson about throwing the grenade after you’ve pulled the pin out:

Imagine the storm that Labour would have whipped up had a Tory minister confused two counties in the north. Home Office sources are enjoying proceedings: “We hope there isn’t a reshuffle as we’d like to keep him.” There is a fair point somewhere in what Bryant was trying to say, but surely if you are moaning about EU migration the answer is to vote UKIP rather than Labour?

UPDATE: Bryant’s attempts to diffuse the situation did not go very well either:

“So, err, good luck!”
