NUMBER TEN RETALIATION FOILED AS NBH’S PRATT RUBBISHES CLAIMS OF POLITICAL AGENDA

The opening salvo in Number Ten’s battle to smear Christine Pratt (right) has delivered first blood to her Helpline…including the revelation that Lord Mandelson’s Department recommends her site.

In a story developing so quickly we can barely keep up here in Slogger’s Roost, a feeble attempt by the Number Ten press office to discredit bullying-helpline boss Christine Pratt has backfired. Desperate digging by Brown’s PRs revealed that NBH has a patron called Anne Widdecombe, and enjoys the support of David Cameron.

Sadly for the Ten Press Room, she also enjoys the enthusiastic support of Lord Mandelson’s Department. And half the night spent by The Slogger looking for signs of political bias in Pratt’s past has unearthed nothing.

So it feels to us like that’s the last of the Brownshirts’ ammunition gone. But they do of course have mud-seeking missiles far more effective than those of The Slog, so we must wait and see.

A word of warning Ms Pratt: don’t go for a walk in the woods….and leave your garden fork at home.
