John Stonborough was PR consultant to the unlovely Speaker of the House of Commons, Michael Martin. He writes in his blog explaining how he warned of the likely embarrassment resulting from publication of the Speaker's expenses. Whilst it has the taste of personal revenge eaten cold, his account also bears the ring of truth.
Apart from his monstrous self regard and record of inept judgements, the man now finds that people he has slurred, hurt and blackened over the years are now taking their revenge. Only an idiot and a truly nasty person builds such an edifice of enemies.
Go Speaker Martin, go.
