One-Eyed Gordo had his first session with the Press yesterday afternoon at No 10. The 'wolfpack' (more like lapdogs, un my view) asked not-very-searching questions on the following subjects. The full summary can be read online at : http://www.number-10.gov.uk/output/Page12592.asp so I have only reproduced one full answer. 1. Flooding 2. Intelligence and Security Committee Report on Rendition 3. 24 Hour Drinking 4. UN Secretary General 5. Holiday UN Secretary General Asked further about the Prime Minister's meeting with Ban Ki Moon, the PMS replied that it was the first time they had met since Mr. Brown had become Prime Minister. They mainly covered Afghanistan in their meeting, and the Prime Minister had said that the UK was committed to Afghanistan, but both agreed to look afresh for the need for greater burden sharing in Afghanistan. Now, I won't pretend to understand the protocols surrounding this weekly junket, but it does seem odd to me - even with half the country under water (including my bit of it) that not one of these great intellects looked for an oppportunity to probe the miserly jock on his prime duty - the defence of the realm, or the commitment of HM Troops to Iraq and Afghanistan. How much longer are they going to let him remain vague about his intentions in these areas? And why do they allow him to get away with it?
