It’s a truth universally recognised that if you find one security exploit you’ll find another. Something called CivilServiceLive has published a really excellent rundown of Tory and Lib Dem special advisers and – what is the word? – non-adviser advisers, here. I note that super-neocon journo William Shawcross’s kid has been placed with George Osborne, as one of two non-adviser advisers. Hilariously, one of his official special advisers glories in the name Poppy, a monicker she shares with my neighbour’s charming cat. Of course, you can’t be held responsible for choosing your parents, even if Tories often seem to believe you should.
The Council for Emerging National Security Affairs, though, sounds like a wanktank of the first water but turns out actually to be a thing.
