    Sky deals uneven hand
    Inspired by the “pack of cards” which American intelligence agencies came up with to pursue their 52 most wanted people in Iraq, Sky News has come up with their own deck of cards… to mark the general election. Tony Blair is the Ace of Diamonds, Michael Howard the Ace of Clubs, Charles Kennedy the Ace of Hearts, Gordon Brown the King of Diamonds… oh, you get the idea. Sky News presenters are given their very own suit, with Adam Boulton as the Ace of Spades, Jeremy Thompson as King, Kay Burley as Queen and Julie Etchingham as Jack. But what does this tell us about how Sky bosses rate their star presenters, and has it led to any on-screen tension? Monkey is assured otherwise, but Boulton must be chuffed to bits he bagged the Ace. Never mind Julie, it could have been worse, you could have been one of the two jokers, allocated to George Galloway and… Robert Kilroy Silk, of course.
