Either he meant it, or the continuity-girly was not paying attention to the photographer’s angles.
Poor little Prince Harry got hung/drawn/quartered for rather less.
How sad. Poor Gordon Brown is actually not a bad-looking man if we are honest about it, _and also_ if he’d smile more, but he’s f****d that one up already. When he now smiles, youtube goes mental and half the planet laughs: the other half is mercifully unaware of him and his works.
In real life he’d probably be able to be a reasonably jovial and not very successful small shopkeeper. You can imagine him behind his hardware counter, in a brown labcoat with biros in the top pocket, grinning at his locals who pop in for a crack and a hello. Better place for him really. Then he’d die and half the town would turn out for his funeral, as is customary in such places.
At least Samizdata thinks Mary Riddell (who is he?) thinks he’s the bee’s knees for Labour. I must admit, I too have been wondering what all these funny lefty blokes are doing writing for the Quisling Harrumphograph, when they’ve already got most of the Dead Tree Press on their side.
The poor, poor soul could have had a better life.
But he would have to choose leftism, wouldn’t he. Sad. Sad.
And now we have a Swine Flu Tsar….oh well, never mind.
