Splendid cock-up from David Aaronvitch in this morning's Times. On the question of taking people who carry knives to see stab victims in hospital he said that 'no one in Government was suggesting any such thing'.
Meanwhile a few pages previously the following transcript from Jacqui Smith on Sky on Sunday is quoted where she is asked, 'one of those proposals is that people caught carrying knives should be taken to see people in hospital who have been stabbed, or to meet th familes of victimes, is that correct?'. Her response? 'It is'.
I guess it is possible that Aaronovitch doesn't consider the Home Secretary to be a position 'in Government'.
