And so the UK Cabinet is coming to Glasgow this week. Stand by for a barrage of e-mails and blogs.
Apparently, the controversy over Damian McBride's thwarted smear campaign is causing a "huge amount of frustration" in Downing Street. I bet.
In fact, I can just hear G. Brown mouthing: "This leaves me hugely frustrated." Or words to that effect.
The peripatetic Cabinet was designed to display the Brown effect reaching those parts of the UK that others couldn't reach.
It was designed to show a ministerial team in touch with opinion and concerns outwith London.
In particular, it was designed to offer reassurance that Team Brown is getting on top of the economic crisis.
Instead, the run-up to the Glasgow gathering has been dominated by a squalid little tale of subterranean malevolence and incompetence.
"Frustration" doesn't quite get there, does it?
PS: The last time the British Cabinet met in Scotland was in 1921 when Lloyd George broke off his Highland holiday and summoned his team to Inverness - including Winston Churchill, then MP for Dundee - to discuss an emergency which had arisen with regard to Ireland.
One year later, in 1922, Lloyd George lost his Premiership. And Churchill lost his seat.
