Press officer to the Spokesman brings to mind Jonathan Swift's poem,
The vermin only teaze and pinchWhich of course is reduced in the nursery ryhme,
Their foes superior by an inch.
So, naturalists observe, a flea
Has smaller fleas that on him prey;
And these have smaller still to bite 'em,
And so proceed ad infinitum
Big fleas have little fleas,.Now of course I understand that EU Commissioners need to have press officers - or if they are feeling particularly grand Spokespersons, but do the press officers need press officers, and as a matter of interest, does Ms Carruthers have a press officer?
Upon their backs to bite 'em,
And little fleas have lesser fleas,
and so, ad infinitum
