Tim Leunig is a special adviser to [[Michael Gove] at Defra.

- Mr Cameron’s aides have joked that Policy Exchange was now his “least favourite think-tank” after it published a report suggesting towns such as Sunderland and Liverpool were “beyond saving” and that their residents should move south. The report was hugely embarrassing for the Tory leader. But it is a sign of these flexible ideological times that Tim Leunig, its author, turned out to be a prominent Liberal Democrat.
