More cock-up than conspiracy

It was rather fun to watch the lobby correspondents shuffling around to see Hazel Blears’ face at PMQs.

She’d conveniently turned up late enough to not get a full-view position on the front bench, instead tucking herself down the side of the Speaker’s chair – not literally, though she’d probably fit.

Someone close to the Communities Secretary told Lobbydog today that the whole affair over her article was “more cock-up than conspiracy”.

Apparently the Observer called at the end of the working week for an article for the Sunday paper, and one was simply rushed out.

Blears' Youtube line - a play on Thatcher's "you turn if you want to" speech - seemed reasonable at the time, they said, but it was only later that they realised how it had been interpreted.

Do you believe it?
