Oh, this has me in the aisles... Charles Clarke is accusing the LSE of running "scare stories", and comes up with some fip-foop-fabulous quotes such as:
" they are really running a media campaign with scare stories of this type which it is very difficult for us to deal with because they won't show us the basis from which they are doing the work"
"What I can say is that the kind of figures that have been talked about in the media based on their briefings are total nonsense"
Funny how both statements are exactly the kind of criticism that has been pointed at Charles Clarke and the whole government proponent agenda for years now. Please, make it stop...
