Not much to disagree with in Anthony's first reaction to this news.
It seems that he was in receipt of documents from an official that were leaked. I suppose that this should be the cue for a debate on how far the Civil Service should be encouraged to be whistleblowers (yay!) and how far they should be discouraged from conducting personal campaigns against their employers for personal and political reasons (boo).
If this case is the former, and Mr Green has encouraged this, it makes him a good MP. If he has been encouraging the latter, however, it's not only a disreputable activity, it is a stupid one. If the Tories are in favour of a collusion between politicians and vindictive civil servants, then I'm looking forward to any (necessarily short) spell of government that they may enjoy in the next couple of decades.
Either way, it makes the case for more in-and-outers - but no-one wants to hear that one. Least of all, the civil service....
