Coulson, News International and the Labour Party

As Sun Tzu said, victorious warriors win first and then go to war.

In this case, it would seem that the Labour Party has failed this simple test of political strategy. It has tried its best to get this story rolling through its friends in the Guardian and has failed miserably, despite the BBC's best efforts to keep the story alive.

Of course, the biggest mistake is that they have taken on the world's most powerful media mogul to simply get back at the Tories over the Damian McBride affair.

Well, guess what.

Rupert Murdoch is not some third rate spin merchant and Labour have now ensured that the whole might of News International will, rightly or wrongly, be turned against them over the next ten months up to the next general election.

One can only imagine the files his organisation has on senior politicians within the Labour Party. The storm is most definitely coming.
