Huhne's the daddy

by Stephen Tall on August 3, 2007

A good day for Chris Huhne, Lib Dem shadow secretary of state for the environment. First, for earning acres of positive coverage for the new Lib Dem proposals to ‘get serious about rail’ by doubling investment – see here (The Guardian), here (Daily Express), here (BBC Online) and here (ePolitix).

And, secondly, for besting his Tory counterpart, Peter Ainsworth (who he?), in Iain Dale’s latest ‘media tarts’ list during July – some indication of which opposition party is perceived by journalists to be more credible on environmental issues in a month when floods were dominating the headlines.
