Just because you're paranoid...

On four occasions at today's meeting I counted Cornwall Council Cabinet members pleading with the media to give them good reports.

Every week councillors receive a briefing from the Leader listing news stories and a total for 'good news' and a total for 'bad news'. The number of bad news stories has never reached above eight, but this relies on some charitable interpretation of what is good news and what is bad (the decision by the Secretary of State to rule against Cornwall on the incinerator was somehow felt to be good).

Perhaps this spin is no longer working on Conservative members?
