Man of The People: Spinning out of control.

Byline: DAVID MELLOR

THE ghastly Government spin doctor Jo Moore, who saw the twin towers tragedy as a good cover to slip out some bad news, was subjected to one of the most masterly and crushing rebukes I have ever heard. It came from the cousin of one of the victims.

The Rev David Smith said: "This is burying bad news of a fairly insignificant kind under the bodies of 6500 people. And that's very bad for our nation."

And so it is.

Which is why I am amazed and genuinely shocked Tony Blair hasn't sacked her.
