Middle East Special Envoy

Put by the Evening Standard that Al Jazeera were reporting that the Prime Minister had had discussions with senior US officials about taking up a role as lead negotiator for the Quartet in the Middle East, the PMOS said that as he had told their colleague this morning, he was the Prime Minister’s Spokesman, not next week’s ex-Prime Minister’s Spokesman, and that remained the position.

Put that the Prime Minister had had discussions with US officials this week, the PMOS replied that the Prime Minister discussed the Middle East with representatives of various countries virtually every week. The PMOS said that he was not going to get drawn into what the Prime Minister might do after he had left office, as that was not his job.

Put that President Bush might announce it the day after the Prime Minister left office, the PMOS said that there was all sorts of speculation about what the Prime Minister was going to do, but it was not the PMOS’ job to get involved in that.
