Tanya Gold's take on the royal family's ability to project an impression of thrift while spending vast sums of public money is, in my humble republican opinion, the most entertaining published response to the appeal court's ruling that Prince Charles's correspondence with Tony Blair's cabinet should be published. The Guardian's leader on the topic of the so-called 'black spider' memos is also a stimulating read. I suspect the attorney general has a real fight on his hands. His argument appears to be that we must not know what Prince Charles's most passionate political opinions are because he is not supposed to have political opinions, and that his correspondence must therefore be suppressed because it might compromise the public's impression of his political neutrality. Convoluted or simply deluded? You choose.
Sorry everyone Gideon's talk is Monday 11th March NOT this Wednesday.
With mainstream parties reeling from UKIP's performance at the Eastleigh by-election they will be poring over polling data.
But it is only a snapshot of the moment. Opinion polling is not a crystal ball. Gideon will give us an insight into how the pollsters collect the data and crunch the numbers.
I've heard Gideon and we are in for a treat.
So see you in the Gillingham newsroom 1pm Monday 11th March.
