I am sure that the Conservative Coalition doesn’t need to do any such thing to keep Simon Hughes on-side as a supporter of the Coalition and all its works, but my attention has been drawn to a Downing Street press release one week BEFORE Simon Hughes was appointed to the prestigious position of “Advocate for Access to Education”

This earlier announcement recorded that Simon Hughes was to be sworn of Her Majesty’s most honourable Privy Council.  This allows him to be called “Right Honourable” and also means that he can be told very secret things …. 

No doubt this offer wasn’t quite as alluring as the Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister first hoped it might be.
