The Two Kellys

Just spotted this on the BBC News website, from their coverage of the New Years Honours:

Perhaps [Tom] Kelly's most difficult moment came during the "cash-for-honours" affair, when he failed to tell the press that Mr Blair was being interviewed by the police, having not been told himself.

This little mishap (which was hardly his fault, after all), pales somewhat in comparison to the time he referred to Dr David Kelly as a "Walter Mitty" character, but regrettably, the BBC cannot find the space to mention it after a Hutton Inquiry emasculation.

PS. Tom Kelly, the ex-PM's former spokesperson, has been awarded the Order of the Bath, for services to whitewashing.
