Spinning Gordon

A brilliant piece of analysis from Iain Dale, showing how Gordon Brown spun and bullied so that opposition comments were excluded from his story on getting tough on terrorism .

As Dale rightly observes, it only works if the hacks go along with it. The spinners rely on their competitive instincts suppressing their journalistic ethics, and of course their stupidity in not realising that they are all being given the same "exclusive".
