London - (Ass Mess): Drowning Street officials have confirmed that deputy Labour Party leader Harriet Harman regularly wears a flak jacket to Cabinet meetings.
"Given how the atmosphere is redolent with backstabbing we are surprised she is the only one so far," the Cabinet Secretary said today.
Violent crime in government has gone up by 6.9 per cent according to latest figures.
Ms Harman's protective measures may have taken this into account, judging by the number of armed police officers flanking her on her way to a Cabinet meeting today.
"Whitehall has become one of the most dangerous criminal neighborhoods in all of Greater London," Sgt Jim Bergerac said today.
"Former no-go areas like Peckham High Street are now safe as houses by comparison."
Gorgon Brown is in hiding.
