The supremely well informed Peter Riddell has an informative analysis of phase two of the Brown project in The Times today. Riddell reports that new blood will be brought into Number Ten to beef up both the policy and the media side of things in an admission that Brown’s attempt to run Downing Street with a far smaller staff to demonstrate a contrast with Tony Blair and his effective Prime Minister’s department has not worked. Team Brown is also looking for ways in which Brown can be presented in a more appealing light. It seems that we will see Brown doing more Q&As and other events where, to use Andrew Rawnsley’s phrase, “you can hear him think.”
