When someone offers you coffee and you're grateful and drink it; and then shortly afterwards with a creeping sense of dread you begin to suspect it was decaf. That's how much I trust Gordon Brown. Decaf Brown, who has the oratory skills of an accountant and the mouth of Mr. Wemmick out of Great Expectations
. Watch the letterbox mesmerically snap open after each dissimulating clause, as he approaches Little Britain and tears his party apart.
I think decaf furthermore is like Bartleby the Scrivener:ReplyDelete
Me: Won't you wake me up and jolt my system with goodness?
Decaf: I would prefer not to.
