Labour spin doctors 'operated like rogue bankers'

Damian McBride compared his activities as Gordon Brown's spin doctor to those of a "rogue trader in the 1980s", saying Labour leaders were unaware of the way he operated.

McBride told ITV's Daybreak: "I'd compare it to when we had some of the rogue bankers ... people weren't asking enough questions about how they were making their profits."
