Further to that discussion on Seven Days yesterday, I got the impression that what happened last week in London hasn’t quite hit through to people yet… By way of illustrating that the investment in comment rather than reporting fact this is not just a Northern Ireland problem, Dizzy recounts an illuminating conversation with a Whitehall editor… H/T IainNOTE: in circumstances like these, you do not require access to parties to break news… St might serve some politicians who think ‘tough love’ is the only way to deal with media miscreants instead to establish relationships with a range of people who increasingly know more about what you are doing than you appear to know yourself…
