Will Brown be spin-free?

After the 2001 election, the spin from Downing Street was that the government would rely less on spin that it had previously. Look where that got us.

Now, claims that a Brown administration will be spin-free are already being questioned.

How many layers of spin are there in this piece from today's Times?

In general, the Chancellor is said to want a Cabinet of "boring competent" ministers - "solid bank manager types" in the words of one ally - to emphasise a commitment to delivery rather than spin.
