Andy Coulson’s* appointment as the new Conservative Director of Communications has spawned at least one amusing blog comment:
So what will happen to the Tories ? Will we now get screaming headlines, more best chested photos of the Tory frontbenchers and 2 part cd collections with every Tory leaflet.
and one insightful blog posting (which points out his annual salary is going to be around £400,000; I wonder how much of Cowley Street you could employ for that sum…!).
* If the name’s familiar, that’s because he is the ex-editor of the News of the World who quit after one of his staff was jailed for plotting to hack into phone messages.
