Spinning banned – official

Spinning has been banned. Official. At the inaugural meeting of Ed Miliband’s new shadow cabinet the law was laid down.

“I will not be briefing against colleagues”, he said, “and I do not expect colleagues to be briefing against others or myself”.

Factions are also out. Apparently. “We will have no return to the factionalism of the past”, he decreed. Though how this latter is to be policed is less clear. Images of Rosie Winterton pouncing on unsuspecting colleagues spring to mind:

“You there, by the bar. Move along. Two’s company. Three is a faction”.

No factions. No briefing. Let’s see how Westminster’s plotters respond to this edict in tomorrow’s papers.
