Judith Woods wrotes:

"Oh Gordon, Gordon, could it get much worse? It was a simple enough question, one that had nothing to do with West Lothian or expenses or even what on earth you've done with our pensions. There was no agenda, no hidden meaning, just a jolly aside during a Mumsnet interview about your favourite biscuit – and you blew it.

It took more than 24 hours for the Prime Minister to come clean, with an unnervingly vague comment on the messaging service Twitter that he liked "absolutely anything with a bit of chocolate on it", which, if anything, made the whole half-coated digestive debacle worse."

The poor bloke can't win.

If he had answered the question at the time, reports would have said: "he continually dodged the question about child care and nursery vouchers yet was happy to chat about Hobnobs."

I am sure the only reason he didn't answer was to concentrate on the more serious issues and now people are trying to make out that he avoided it for more sinister reasons
