Labour is really fucking up here. Got to at least acknowledge how wretchedly unhappy those staff were. Any other employer in that situation and Labour would get stuck in.
Otherwise, I thought it was fairly survivable. The big "data leak" came up with not all that much. Formby's "Don't tell em, Pike!" and that email from Milne supposedly interfering, when he may have been asked for comment first. Editing that email was clumsy. Thomas Gardiner looked potentially problematic but wasn't properly filled in.
This may be because the BBC is holding back because the EHRC will have mire to say. But either way, the approach of rubbishing staffers, briefing outriders and hiring Carter Fuck is all wrong.
