What was Mr McBride thinking? The statement from No 10 reads: "Neither the Prime Minister nor anybody else in Downing Street, except the author, knew anything about any of these private emails. The author of these emails has apologised for their juvenile and inappropriate nature and for the embarrassment caused. All staff will be reminded of the appropriate use of Number 10 resources."
It looks embarrassing and is embarrassing and will lead many to think that we are in a rather desperate state at present. Should Mr McBride remain in the employment of the government. I personally think not.
