EBEKAH Brooks yesterday revealed it was Chancellor George Osborne’s idea to appoint Andy Coulson as the Government’s top spin doctor.

The former News International chief told MPs she had nothing to do with the controversial appointment of Mr Coulson – her former News of the World deputy editor when she was in charge of the paper.

She told the Commons Culture, Media and Sport Committee: “It was George Osborne, the Chancellor’s, idea that when Andy Coulson left the News of the World they should start ­discussions with him on whether he [would] be the appropriate person to go into Tory HQ.
