Say what you like about the current political firmament but the media likes nothing more than a scandal; this week it was rather like waiting for buses for an age and then along come 2 or 3.........
Andy Coulson had to go. The illegal hacking by News of the World journalists whilst he was Editor is causing great anxiety inside NewsCorp just at a time when they are seeking to buy BSkyB.
Tony Blair's evidence on why we went to war with Iraq looks flimsier by the week. It was Labour's greatest mistake when in office.
Alan Johnson is the most decent MP there is in the House and the last thing he could have expected was such a serious family breakdown causing him to stand aside. He'll be back.
Meanwhile, a slightly more contrite Ed Balls has taken the second office he has lusted for all his life - shadow Chancellor - and he will cause headaches for George Osborne, his oppo.
All this leads me to think that David Miliband will be back in business shortly. He is missed and we need him back on the front line - sooner rather than later.
