As you wish, sir
+Thinking about Alistair Campbell’s recent self-promotion (which was merely to say he wished to remain expelled from the Labour Party for the sin of voting for another party - see my previous blog) one can only assume that once a director of communications, always a director of communications—Campbell just can’t stop, even if now his only product seems to be himself. This has made me wonder whether even in the sad event of his death he would promote a discussion over the epitaph he would like on his gravestone. Should it be ’Here lies a warmonger’ or ’Here lies the slayer of Corbyn’ or ’Here lies Tony’s crony?’ To narrow the field down a bit, how about ’Here lies.’
+Already questions are being asked as to what Johnson’s economic policy is. It has been suggested that his use of the word ’boosterism’ is a clue to the Prime Minister’s (aaagghh!) approach to Making Britain Great Again. This has a ring about it, in other words, Woosterism. Bertie Wooster was ‘A young English gentleman and one of the "idle rich", Bertie frequently appears alongside his valet, Jeeves, whose intelligence manages to save Bertie or one of his friends from numerous awkward situations.’ (Wikipedia). Sums it up really. But who, I wonder is Jeeves, who may turn out to be our national saviour? Somebody from the servant class, perhaps? (Full disclosure: I very much enjoyed watching Ian Carmichael and Denis Price in the BBC's 1970s(?) adaptation of P.G. Wodehouse's comic tales.)
