If you haven’t yet heard, the Prime Minister announced this morning that he is going to reform MPs' allowances, almost immediately, vote on them next week and have them in place by 1st of July.

Before you say good old Gordon, just take a look between the lines.

Read into the message that Alistair Darling has been trying to send you in all of his briefings.

The decoded message is:

"The state of the economy is nothing to do with me this was all caused by Gordon it’s as bad as it gets make sure you all remember whose fault it was don’t blame me".

Yesterday, we had an announcement on Hillsborough.

Today it's MPs' expenses.

Read into the message that Gordon Brown is trying to send to you in all of his announcements.

It goes like this:

"Darling is a little **** for trying to put the blame for the economy onto me I will divert all the attention of the press away from his budget I will make Darling’s budget look like a non-event in light of all the other headline grabbing initiatives I’m about to announce".

The Prime Minister does not have a genuine bone in his body. The fact that his spin has become so obvious and transparent is more than worrying. We have open warfare between No.10 and No.11. How long can this go on?

There's been warfare between No 10 and No 11 ever since New Labour originally came to power. The problem with the spin is the emphasis which the media, especially the BBC, put upon it.

What I found most interesting about this is that the Greenbook previously had expenses recalculated in April based on March RPI. The new greenbook has no RPI reference at all, let alone March. Remind us what March RPI was this year? Oh, that's right 0%. What a suprise...

By the the sound of it Gordon doesn’t meet anyone who wants to work in the private sector. No surprise there, with the debt burden and shrinking pensions.

A interesting link from Mark Mardell's BBC Euro blog by the Labour MEP Richard Corbett.
