Government’s spin bill rises to nearly £400m

Today the Telegraph has covered a story I did a month ago. See here.

They say:

Official figures showed that central government spent a total of £391 million on advertising, marketing, PR and other presentational work in 2007-08.

The total is up by £53 million on the previous year, when it was £338 million – a rise of almost 16 per cent.

They missed the angle that this surge in spending was to pay for Brown’s election that never was.
