Adonis ruled "out of order"

Lord Adonis received a dressing down from the Transport Select Committee yesterday for having leaked his evidence beforehand.

"There's extreme concern in the committee that today there was extensive coverage in the media of what it's alleged you are going to say," Louise Ellman said.

"This is really out of order".

He claimed he thought that, since he was merely restating government policy, it wouldn't be a problem.

He's frankly lucky Gwynneth Dunwoody is no longer around to rip him limb from limb.

UPDATE: Meanwhile Nigel Harris excoriates the TSC for piss-poor performance...
