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
...one 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...
