News seen through the prism of Cabinet splits

It is fascinating to see that the press are now reporting news through the prism of Cabinet splits:

Darling vetoes plans for green revolution in snub to Mandelson

Cabinet split over right to stay in work after 65

Minister hits out at Labour’s fetish for choice

In his enthusiasm, Patrick Hennessy attempts to stir the pot about unpopularity of Cabinet ministers saying that a poll was so sensitive that it was kept under wraps.  The truth being that it has already been published as Anthony Wells points out.

Brown has a fundamental problem here.  Clearly he is unable to control the leaks that keep spilling out from the Cabinet.  If this type of reporting continues, his authority will be fatally undermined beyond repair.
