Chris Smith

In an article for the Guardian Chris Smith (Labour gombeen man given a sinecure position as head of the Environment Agency) complains "In a lifetime in public life, I've never seen the same sort of storm of background briefing, personal sniping and media frenzy getting in the way of decent people doing a valiant job..."

Er, this is someone who worked for many years with both Alastair Campbell and Peter Mandelson.

He would have seen in that period a tsunami of background briefing, personal sniping and media frenzy.

Not least the background briefing, personal sniping and media frenzy that affected Dr David Kelly so profoundly, as well as many of his Labour colleagues.

Therefore he sounds ridiculous to make the statement he has in today's Guardian.
