Might Gordon Brown honestly be starting to regret getting into bed with the Goldman Sachs crowd?
The investment bank got its big break in Whitehall via its former banker, Gavyn Davies – who is married to Brown's former private secretary and the current director of government relations, Sue Nye.
Since then, political expediency has forced the PM to start branding the bank as "morally bankrupt", while calling for an immediate investigation into the Goldman's dealings. But any votes he might have won through that bit of spin were more than extinguished by today's gaffe of calling Labour voter Gillian Duffy "bigoted".
And who does the "clunking fist" blame for exposing him to Duffy? Er, Sue Nye.
