Though they do seem designed for those MPs who might confuse a clippings service with a political 'strategy.'.
The shorter Steve Hilton strategy memos: have you lot not read Nudge yet?
But he's normally seen as quite a jovial chap, as Matthew d'Ancona mentioned in his defence of Hilton in Monday's Evening Standard.
No one in the Western hemisphere says “Great!” more often, or with more conviction.
Next Left certainly can't condone the conduct which, as Channel 4 News exclusively reports tonight, earned Hllton a criminal record and a fine for disorder on his way back from the Tory conference in 2008.
But we wouldn't make too much of it either - even if we are less sure that Andy Coulson may take a benign view.
No doubt there is an intriguing tale as to why this has been revealed publicly now, and by whom, and whether this is part of an internecine power struggle in camp Cameron.
But let us at least note that Hilton's reported offence - shouting out "wanker" and getting very shirty when asked to show his ticket - did at least seem to get his point across clearly.
In fact, we wonder whether it might not be the very first thing Hilton has said on the public record which does not qualify for Next Left's new Steve Hilton Award for Progressive Gobbledegook.
