US beltway giant Politico might need to try a little harder in their new European expansion.
In a sloppy piece about Osborne – that appears to be lifted almost entirely from James Forsyth’s Twitter – Politico confuse unelected civil servant Permanent Secretaries with elected Parliamentary Private Secretaries who are drawn from the Government benches:
“Three of Osborne’s last four permanent private secretaries are now in the cabinet.”
Incorrect, and a beyond a rookie error even for a newbie outfit.
Great insight there…
