It's getting to the stage that anybody going into Number Ten promotes a new rumour as to who is being asked to join the government. The milkman comes up to the door with his milk and the headlines fire off immediately...."Milkman tapped for Cabinet role" etc (or, more likely these days: "Milkman turns down role in government").
Anyway, Alan Sugar has visited this morning prompting headlines that....you know the rest. It's on the FT website, though, so it must be true. Mind you, there was a rumour the Sugar was joining the government at the time of the last reshuffle and that turned out to be...nonsense.
