New Clegg media management tactic?

It seems Nick Clegg’s aides, according to the Daily Telegraph, have a new role model: the infamous character of Malcolm Tucker in BBC2’s (successful) satire of the Labour government, The Thick of It.

Responding to a journalist enquiring about a story that Nick Clegg had been unable to attend a Privy Council meeting, the paper reports:
“I can’t believe we are having this ------- conversation again,” an aide to the DPM emoted in a tirade worthy of Malcolm Tucker in the television series The Thick of It. “The ------ fact is he can’t ------- be everywhere, but I know you are going to go off and write that the DPM has ------- snubbed the Queen once a ------- gain.”

  1. Only the Telegraph could imagine that the Privy Council belongs to the "efficient" rather than the "dignified" part of government. Stupid, bigoted ----ing ----ers.
