Another extended press release disguised as a speech - and does it matter?
FEBRUARY 4, 2013
Hardly ten days on from seeing David Cameron reading an extended press release on Europe as if it were 'a speech' to an audience ( HERE ) and we have Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne. doing much the same thing at the offices of JP Morgan in Bournemouth earlier today. Better a speech than press conf/release?" To which I admitted that perhaps I was being rather too purist and asked "but are you conceding that it was a press release?" "No"
