Hewitt and Hoon's act of self harm is massive boost to Conservatives
The SnowStorm Plot looks likely to melt away. Only the usual suspects have backed the call by Patricia Hewitt and Geoff Hoon (two people who wanted the EU job that Brown gave to Baroness Ashton) for a secret ballot of Labour MPs. The Labour Party now looks more divided than ever after today. A massive gift to the Conservatives.
Gordon Brown won another PMQs. Jonathan Isaby disagrees but I thought Brown edged PMQs again today. He was able to exploit the Tory leader's unfortunate miscommunication of the party's policy on a married tax allowance on Monday (that was quickly corrected).
A bad day for the BBC's Nick Robinson. He told BBCtv viewers that there was no plot before we learnt there was one. He also dissed bloggers for suggesting that there was a plot. Guido Fawkes enjoyed some YouTube revenge.
The Spectator remains on the attack against David Cameron. Spectator Editor Fraser Nelson has adopted an aggressive tone towards David Cameron since the start of the year (eg here and here). CCHQ won't like the front cover of this week's Spectator. The edition includes an article by David 'Jeremiah' Selbourne that attacks every aspect of the Cameron agenda.
