McTernan's Tactics Revealed

Guido is enjoying reading leaked emails sent by John McTernan, the former Labour spinner turned Julia Gillard’s henchman and inspiration for the Crossest Man in Scotland. The press down under reckon he comes across a bit Malcolm Tucker, though Guido has always seen him as Jamie. ABC report:

“When Ms Gillard’s chief of staff declared a “war on crap'” and ordered staff to tidy their workstations to make the office one befitting a prime minister, a colleague jokingly referred to “McTernan’s office” as one needing attention.

Mr McTernan replied: “C***, you will be c**ted too” in a reply-all email to the office.”

In one of his more amusing meltdowns McTernan blacklists an ABC journalist who dared to criticise him:
