Foot in Mouth Letwin at it again.

Although we're more used to hearing his rather eccentric and gaffe prone pronouncements in years gone by (some of his greatest hits have been helpfully compiled by LabourList), today's story in The Daily Mirror shows Oliver Letwin, the Cabinet Office minsiter and a key policy adviser to the PM, revert to type, only this time seen throwing away parliamentary and constituency letters and documents in public bins in a park.

The Mirror reports that some of them contained "sensitive correspondence on terrorism, national security and constituents' private details."

The paper claims that they saw him doing this over 100 times on five separate occasions. Of course a spokesman for Letwin denied any of the things he binned were of "a sensitive nature."

Brilliant. Just priceless. Story of the week.
