Political and PR transparency meets media intrusion

Going to a high-level briefing? This salutory tale from the UK, shows just how probing media intrusion can be. Just make sure you don’t carry your notes in a see-through folder, where press photographers can focus in and blow up your meeting notes. A UK Housing Minister’s notes betrayed her meeting crib notes, reminding her (in bold) to:
“…show that at this time of uncertainty…we are on people’s side.”
Another note reads: ‘We can’t know how bad it will get’
Ironically, as the UK Daily Mail reports, the gaffe emerged on the day the Government’s own figures showed house prices are still rising.
