That bullying story

I'm no fan of Gordon Brown, and I can all too easily believe he's a bully. But there's something a bit fishy about the revelation from the National Bullying Hotline that several members of his office have called them over the last few years. Surely the first rule about running a confidential helpline is that you don't out your clients? Or, to quote their web site: "We never share your details with anyone else. All correspondence is confidential."

Then, there's the fact that the site's front page has a long quotation from David Cameron prominently displayed, and that two of its patrons are prominent Conservative politicians. None of this may be enough to acquit Brown in the court of public (or even my) opinion, but it's enough to make me go 'Hmm.'
