As reported in PRWeek this week, the latest Labour special adviser to jump ship is Sebastian Dance – aide to Northern Ireland Secretary Shaun Woodward.
Dance is to become a consultant at the ever-expanding TLG, ran by Michael Portillio’s former press secretary Malcolm Gooderham.
The news comes amid claims that Woodward is being given a hard time by some of the PM’s key lieutenants – namely Peter Mandelson and Ed Balls.
The things some people will do for a quiet life, eh…?!
