Yesterday, according to Michael Crick on Newsnight, David Miliband's friends were letting the world know that he 'genuinely' doesn't want the new foreign minister's post in the post-Lisbon European empire. Crick, ever the friend of Labour, was at the same game, spreading the message that Miliband's much-doubted denials were 'true'.
In a report featuring only Labour's friends - i.e. Sir Stephen Wall, former Europe advisor to Tony Blair, and Paul Richards, former Labour strategist - Crick's tone throughout remained free from sarcasm or scepticism or accusation. He chased no-one and engaged in no mischief-making. How utterly different to all his reports on those despicable 'Tories'!
