There was an extraordinary exchange at the morning press briefing from the Prime Minister's Official Spokesman today. A journalist asked if, having attended the Scotland game on Saturday, Gordon Brown would be going to see England play Croatia on Wednesday. The PMOS said 'no'. He was then asked why. I'm told that the PMOS then said that some people have been saying he's a jink (can't think WHO). "I'll leave it up to you to make up your own minds".
What an extraordinary thing for the PMOS to say! I suspect that it's more to do with the fact that Brown doesn't want to get roundly booed (again).
