Dr Qvortrup's Cab: Spin is embarrassing

June 17, 2009

Damian McDirt, as Mads Qvortrup recalls, was the name given to the Prime Minister’s now sacked spin doctor, has winged his master.

Damian McBride spread false rumours about Conservative politicians frequenting prostitutes and taking cocaine, and he has damaged Gordon Brown’s repudiation as this politician is otherwise known for his actual policy and as a man of substance with a will to solve today's big problems.

It is no longer a celebrity-like thing or “cool” to be a spin doctor; it's embarrassing, says Mads Qvortrup in this episode of Dr Qvortrups’s Cab.
