George Osborne has just given what I think is probably his best ever interview. It concentrated on the budget, but at the end of the interview Andrew Marr asked him about Gordon Brown's apology. "Gordon Brown hasn't written to my wife," he told Marr. That's not what we were told at the beginning of the week. We were told by Number Ten that the PM had written peronal letters to those mentioned in the smear emails. Why didn't the Shadow Chancellor's wife receive such a letter?
UPDATE 12.18: In the original of this post I wrote that George said that he hadn't had a letter either. I clearly misheard, as several readers have pointed out. But the fact remains that his wife did not receive an apology from Gordon Brown, and should have.
