What was the "dysfunctional and childish behaviour"
I can't find it described in the article. Throwing toys out of prams? Posting nasty things about one another on Twitter? Making snide comments and sniggering as they passed one another in corridors? Undermining people by dragging up has-beens to lambast them in the Spectator?
...oh sorry, this is about the GDS. I thought for a moment it was about the Blairites in the Labour Party. Or is it just that this kind of behaviour is now the norm in everything politics-related, and the country is being run by Nigel Molesworths (3b)?
