Miliband: 'Stop unattributable briefings'

Interesting paragraph from the Guardian's interview with David Miliband: "In an oblique reference to the Damian McBride briefings, he also calls on the media to abandon unattributable briefings, saying all politicians' spokesmen should be named, or not quoted by media outlets. "The gotcha culture of politics is not in anyone's interests," he said."

abandon unattributable briefings

This, as Sir Michael White of The Guardian used to be fond of saying, is rather like trying to abolish sin.
