Getting a good return on our investment


There was a great deal of criticism of the PM last year for employing a team of private photographers so that the Downing Street press team could exclude media photographers from events and show only the pictures that they wanted us to see. However, there is a story in the Guardian today telling us that the official photographer has handed over pictures of Boris Johnson enjoying a beer at the birthday party which he still says that he can’t possibly be expected to know whether it occurred or not, let alone whether he attended, until the Met finish their investigation and the full Sue Gray report is released. If the Guardian story is true, employing those private photographers might turn out to provide the best return of any investment of our cash that he’s made since taking office.
