Disgraced Prisoner and stealer of other people's ideas Jeffrey Archer has said that the current melt-down at Labour Headquarters is a classic story that he wrote more than 15 years ago.
The waster of trees told us: 'All of this that is happening now is the plot line to an old book I abandoned, when something with more commercial potential popped into my little old head'
The 83 year old former Lord carried on: 'It was called something like Dangerous to know, or A Story I told, or Lies and other ways of getting a point across. It contained a story about a beleagered Prime Minster called Mr Grey, and a Cabinet abandoning him for some-one with more charisma. Of course, it was written around the time of John Major. We did not know what he was like at the time though'
The current Prime Minister only had a small phrase for Mr Archer, but we are not permitted to repeat it here, but I am sure that you can probably have a good guess at what it is, can't you?
