Political memoirs

Asked if the Prime Minister had read any of the extracts from Lord Mandelson’s new book about the coalition talks, the PMS said that the Prime Minister did not spend a huge amount if time reading newspaper reviews this morning; he had other things to do.

Asked if the Prime Minister kept a diary and if he ever discussed the issue of writing memoirs with Cabinet members, the PMS said no, not that he was aware.

Asked if the Prime Minister was considering any reform where by former Cabinet Ministers would be banned from writing memoirs for a certain length of time after leaving government, the PMS said there were no plans to do this and that there were already rules governing civil servants.

  1. I do wish these announcements were spell-checked before being published online. It’s a great humiliation for the nation, when it concerns a government website. You shame us. Stop it.

    Is this related to the previous government’s promise – Edukation, Edukation, Edukation? Hmmm. That must be it.
