Silly season comes early

There is something surreal about Shami Chakrabarti's faux outrage at Andy Burnham'scomments regarding her dealings with David Davis. Some of the reaction is a tad over-the-top also. Alix Mortimer over at Liberal Conspiracy is one who is taking this all a bit seriously and the Tory and Lib Dem spokespeople are joining in with the faux outrage.

Of course, Shami Chakrabarti is just using Andy Burnham's rather unfunny comments (I'm amazed if people see them as anything other than that) to gain a few newspaper columns and airtime for herself and her cause. Fair enough, that's the game.

Anyway, she has certainly given the comments a good airing. Everyone would have read this edition of Progress magazine eventually because everyone does. Good then that the comments were so powerfully rebutted or what might people have thought?

This is all rather silly.
