The SST has a lengthy profile of Heather Simpson, the PM’s Chief of Staff. Nothing particularly new in there, but made more relevant with her role in the pledge card affair.
One fairly harsh quote:
“Heather is the consummate apparatchik. Most of humanity desires to be liked. That doesn’t seem to matter to her.”
I’ve never dealt with her in a professional capacity, but certainly most Labour staff seem to have a story to tell of being half scared to death by H2 at some stage in their careers.
