He’s at it again. Culture, Media and Sport secretary and generally lacking in Clue politician Andy Burnham has followed the example of a civil servant who left confidential papers on a train and done the same thing himself.
Is it just me who’s wondering what was going through Mr Burnham’s mind while he was reading those papers on that train? If it’s confidential then surely it deserves to be safely stored, an eagle eye kept on it and making sure it remains with you at all times?
Trains and train stations are always warning us about the dangers of unattended baggage: Here’s Chiltern’s warning and here’s Wrexham And Shropshire’s warning. So Mr Burnham’s lack of Clue could well have inconvenienced other travellers.
I’ve got one question: If what Mr Burnham did was “unacceptable” (as mentioned in the BBC report) then why hasn’t he resigned?
