It could be said that Ms Moore's hapless handling of her job should not engage the attention of the media and the Opposition parties to the extent that it has; she is a relatively unimportant special adviser to a relatively junior cabinet minister. However, she was a knack of making major errors which uncover something nasty at the heart of the Labour government. Attempts were made to excuse her atrocious email advice that September 11 would be a good day to bury bad news but last week she may have done something much worse at least in Downing Street's eyes. The longawaited minutes of Mr Byers' contentious conversation with the Railtrack chairman were released exactly five minutes after the Chancellor of the Exchequer began his PreBudget Statement last Tuesday and thus, to use No 10*s word, contaminated the media coverage of Mr Brown's important speech. In another telling phrase, No 10 refused to deny that it had reprimanded the Department for Transport. Perhaps unfairly, but nonetheless understandably, Jo Moore has come to represent the unacceptable face of Labour government spin and it would now be better for everybody, including herself, if she were to resign before, eventually, she has to be fired.
