Today’s award for Westminster nominative determinism goes to Labour’s duty spinner over the weekend. Sending out press releases for the red team was one Victoria Street. This name is not a group account reflecting the old location of Labour HQ – 83 Victoria Street – but, as a source confirms, is that of a junior staffer. It reminded me of the time when the Downing Street press office started emailing information from an Alistair Campbell last year. A coincidence, thankfully.
