Isn’t it interesting how the broadening of the communication channel causes gatekeepers of all stripes (in this case, the Tory press office) to tie themselves into knots trying to define who is “media” and who isn’t?

Incidentally, I think they’ll live to regret that attitude on display here should the Tories win the election.

UPDATE: the linked post appears to have been pulled by Tory Politico in the last 45 minutes. It’s still viewable in Google’s cache.

UPDATE 2: Perhaps he has more on his mind that a 6-month old post about daft PR decisions, given that he’s fighting a cease-and-desist from the Capital News Company The Register has covered the story.

UPDATE 3: And it’s back
