Craig Oliver vs Malcom Tucker. FIGHT

I expect we all saw the film of Craig Oliver having a go at Norman Smith of the BBC yesterday over a report he didn't like, blissfully unaware of the cameras still rolling. But if you missed it, here it is..

And there's a good analysis (and some more 'behind the scenes' tales) in this report from Mark Damazer in The Guardian.

Oliver has taken some flak over this.But I'm not sure why. He's just doing his job and he's pretty polite and straightforward.

But you know. Wouldn't it be so much better if in real life, the spin doctors were just a tad more Tuckeresque...
