Gordon Brown’s YouTube triumph
The prime minister decided last week to announce his new policy on MPs’ expenses by posting a clip on YouTube. I defy anyone to watch it through without falling about with incredulous laughter. Is it possible that no-one in No. 10 had the gumption to step in and prevent this suicidal venture into no longer very new technology, especially when the subject matter alone obviously required the announcement to be made in the House of Commons?
