Lance Price: Madness

A controversial writer who worked as a spin doctor for Tony Blair was paid taxpayers’ money to give media training in Armenia.

Lance Price picked up more than £8,000 from the Foreign Office for a week of sessions with local journalists in the capital, Yerevan.

On his return to London in October 2013, Mr Price tweeted: ‘Back in London after great week in Yerevan with @UKinArmenia supporting British Days and talking media, politics and minorities.’

The British embassy in Yerevan tweeted a picture of one of Mr Price’s training sessions.

Mr Price, 57, started his career with the BBC but was appointed Alistair Campbell’s deputy at No 10 in 1998.

After leaving Labour, he found himself in the limelight after giving the first inside account of Blair’sregime in a book called The Spin Doctor’s Diary'

The Mail.

Who are just a teensy bit obsessed with foreign aid (and homosexualists and Tony Blair).

Note the two examples of this 'madness' they highlight...
