Politico’s Oh No! Amateur Gaffe for New Venture

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…
