The best line on Hutton to date

Not mine, I'm afraid, but that of Ben Pimlott, political academic and part of the Labour establishment. In his piece in the Guardian - where else? - today, he says of the jobs of an inquiry is to avoid any whisper of a suggestion of partiality. Another is to command credibility. In these respects, the report is almost naive in its lack of equivocation.

That is just about as fine a piece of mandarin prose as you're ever likely to see.

So good that I fear his chances of a peerage may now depend on the next prime minister...
