What's to hide?


An insight into the kind of thing Jack Straw maybe doesn't want us to know about is given in Peter Stothard's book '30 Days,' which Angry Ferret is reading.
On the day the Iraq ground attack begins, Straw goes on the Today programme.
According to Stothard, Straw, then Foreign Secretary, came back after it bright and breezy, saying, "It was amazing. They allowed me to speak."
"And I got in three sycophantic references to the Prime Minister, one to Gordon Brown and none to the International Development Secretary."
Surely similar kinds of conversations weren't recorded in Cabinet meetings?
If so, I can't believe steely-eyed Jack would care, he's weathered many a political storm.
But what Gordon said, and did, maybe a different matter.
