Still spinning

Blair may have gone but the Blair Broadcasting Corporation is still spinning:
The Scottish Executive is to be rebranded as the Scottish Government, it has been confirmed.
No - it's already been rebranded, as we can see from the photo and as we can read about in the very same article:
A new Scottish government sign has been put in place outside its Victoria Quay building in Leith, replacing the existing Scottish Executive sign.
I always hated the Labour government's policy of leaking news to friendly journalists who could then write: "The minister will announce today..." How did they know that the minister wouldn't be struck down by a bolt of lightning before making his pronouncement? I suppose the weather's been nationalised just like the BBC. When journalists say that something will happen, the event should be in the future and should definitely occur.

I well remember the morning of September 11th 2001: "at the TUC conference the Prime Minster's speech" blah, blah. Never happened of course.
