Is the government planning to overshadow the Tory Party conference?

As we await news from the Chancellor with regard to the future of Bradford and Bingley (even though it seems as though most of the details have already been leaked) there is a growing suspicion that the government is looking for political gain with regard to the expected announcement. All of the journalist have their pens at the ready and are waiting to write the news about Bradford and Bingley, but will they forget about the Tory Party conference?

Whether the government likes it or not there will be claims that they are looking to make political gain out of the announcement. It has been known for weeks that Bradford and Bingley was in trouble but why wait until the eve of the Tory conference to decide to act?

The first and last days of any conference are the ones which are chosen to hit hardest, grab the headlines and make statements. There is now a real danger for the Tories that this week's news will be full of stories about Bradford and Bingley with the conference news playing second fiddle. Has Gordon Brown pulled off a master stroke or will the public see through his cunning plan?
