Malcolm Tucker really is out therePosted on March 3, 2011
As well as proving extremely popular with the public at large, the Thick of It was a smash hit in Westminster because of its worryingly accurate portrayal of the hurly burly and barely-managed chaos of British politics.

With Britain’s Libyan policy descending into what one source called an ‘omnishambles’, David Cameron was kept informed as the Government’s Cobra crisis committee met through yesterday.
“Omnishambles” was of course coined as a term by Malcolm Tucker. Has he just outed himself as the Mail’s unnamed source?
