We are a self-effacing crew at Computer Weekly. It is, therefore, with some colour flushing our cheeks that we rise to stammer out a rebuttal of a remark made by the minister of state for public health, Caroline Flint, about one of our number.
In a Commons debate on the National Programme for IT in the NHS on 6 June, she said, "I am sure that [Conservative MPs] do not rely only on the opinions of such people as Tony Collins of Computer Weekly, who has, I understand, provided briefings solely to members of the Conservative Party." Not true.
