David Blunkett

Asked what David Blunkett’s interview with Piers Morgan would contribute to the debate on welfare reform and pensions, the Prime Minister’s Official Spokesman (PMOS) said that was a matter for the DWP. Asked if it was wise for David Blunkett to be doing such an interview, the PMOS said it was a matter he would leave to David Blunkett and his department, it was not a matter that would detain Downing Street for long. Put to him that perhaps it would be a matter for Downing Street when we heard what came out of it the PMOS said that not only did that come under the heading of a hypothetical question but also perhaps wishful thinking on the part of the journalist.
