Two strange stories from the UK: First, the housing minister accidentally had her notes for today’s cabinet meeting photographed, revealing the UK government’s deepest fears about the housing market. Next, the communities minister (?) happened to show an e-mail detailing Gordon Brown’s possible participation in a reality show.
I’ve read about a similar story involving a Danish trade union negotiator in an earlier age, but this comes from the party that introduced the Master Spindoctor to the world. Surely these politicians should be drilled in the physical handling of political information.
As I said: This puzzles me.
PS: Note how well you can read the text in the housing minister’s notes on this blow-up. Scary, huh?
