Unfortunately, the egg is meeting our face. We received an e-mail on Monday from Green Party Communications Director Andrew Campbell assuring us that it was not the Greens who were employing people on a top-secret campaign. We accepted Andrew's word, and amended the post accordingly; our informant got it wrong, and has been given the cyber version of an uppercut!
We're not perfect, and sometimes we make mistakes. When we do, we take ownership of them, and this is one of those times. We apologise unreservedly to the Green Party for any embarrassment caused to them.
In the meantime Cameron Slater has been asking questions, because he too ran the story from our informant. After all, with all that confidentiality and intrigue, it had to be something interesting, right? And he's made an interesting discovery, which we'll leave for him to explain. This will doubtless interest the Green Party, so there might be a silver lining for them after all; such are the ironies of the blogosphere!
