Yards of tittle-tattle in the papers heralds the return of pointless spin...

It's a shame to see the papers so full of yards of rubbish about who met who on what yacht to discuss this, that and the other while most of us in this country are concerned about rising fuel/living costs, the onset of recession, the lost millions of (council tax payers) council money and the effect that will have on services like education, police etc over the coming years.
Not to mention those now facing repossession and homelssness while the bankers still get fat-cat payouts and the fact that the country is borrowing huge sums of money to bail out the very system that put us in this mess in the first place....
Who said what to whom and sat next to who at whatever boat party is of no relevance to the current economic climate - and just goes to show how out of touch with the country, political spin now is. I am sure there are regulatory controls etc for party funding and any irregularities should be thoroughly scrutinised and investigated.
Let's hope PMQ's is not dominated by this load of silliness when so many people are facing such serious consequences in their lives.
