Now this is interesting, apparently, James Purnell has taken up a job at Demos. Some might recall me mentioning Demos the other week here in relation to a number of tabled questions by Tom Watson about the think-tanks link with Government.
James Purnell has gone off to join, amongst others, Alan Milburn, George Osborne, David Willets, Vince Cable, Will Hutton. Looks like the organisation is going to be a hotbed of anti-Brownite thinking for some years too come. An ideal opportunity for Osborne to woo Purnell into potentially crossing the floor as well isn't it?
