Hain’s Special Advisor going.. but not quite yet?

Guido may want to check the details of this one.. As we noted yesterday, he had related that the Secretary of State for Wales, etc, Peter Hain’s Special Advisor Phil Taylor had “told Guido that it was already his intention to resign, that he had informed the permanent secretary that he was intending to resign”. But according to this UTV report Mr Taylor “confirmed last night that he was taking unpaid leave from the Northern Ireland Office to concentrate on his boss`s campaign.”

“It is true that I intend to leave at the end of the month which is when we hope to have a devolved government in place at Stormont,” he confirmed. “I have been asked to help out in the campaign and that is what I will do.”

Note the “will do”. Guido, about that evidence you mentioned..
