Damian McBride, the Downing Street aide forced to quit over e-mails smearing top Tories, has “disappeared without a trace”, a senior Labour MP has said.
Tony Wright said he had wanted Mr McBride to give evidence to the Commons public administration committee.
He “seems to have disappeared without a trace and despite our best endeavours we haven’t been able to trace him”, committee chairman Mr Wright said.
Apparently not so much as a knarled, curled toenail remains. Even a bucket of quick lime couldn’t work that fast!
Perhaps he has voluntarily removed himself out of range of flying Nokias, Excoet missiles, and all the other armoury at the disposal of an irate and embattled Prime Minister.
Still, one good sign, the BBC are reporting this snippet, so even they have accepted that Gordon’s days are numbered.
