An enraged Call me Dave, allegedly, summoned a meeting of the wise and wonderful of his Tory Party cohorts last night. The meeting, apparently lasted through the night, and, has resulted in the resignation of Andy Coulson, Tory Director of Spin and Media manipulation.
Call me Dave, now better known as Flashman for his Tory boy tendency to bully remorselessly, demanded a story that would push Balls and Blair off the front pages.
An unnamed insider at Downing Street, told Call me Dave to "ditch Andy, it's the story they all want and is certain to sell millions of newspapers for a few days."
So far, it appears to have done exactly that.
TV news programmes are wall to wall with the story. Political correspondents are filling many minutes of tedious news packages. The Tony Blair Show from the Iraq Inquiry has been abandoned. Ed Balls is nowhere to be seen.
I'll be back says Ed.
