Gordon Brown the real master of spin

It was quote interesting watching Mondays Panorama on Gordon Brown.

Just a few points.

Charlie Whelan was quite clear that journalists were briefed on budgets before hand, on the authority of Gordon Brown, whilst before hand any budget leak would have cost a chancellor his job.

Robert Chote, director of the Institute of Fiscal Studies has described Gordon Brown's spin machine as the hardest there is.

He lied about not knowing about the Bernie Ecclestone donation. (You remember, we will ban tobacco advertising in sport, thanks for the million Bernie, except of course in Formula one)

The BBC has this.
