"Whenever I hear someone arguing for slavery I feel a strong impulse to see it tried on him personally."

(Abraham Lincoln)

Totally off topic, but what do you make of David Cameron being snapped on holiday and associated comments about being portly ? As you know I have very little time for DC, but find this kind of intrusion totally unacceptable. Where are the 'wimmin against everything' complaining about sexism as they surely would have done if the picture was of Emily Thornberry ?

I agree.

That sort of thing is childish and intrusive whoever the target is, male or female, left or right. I would say the same thing if it were done to Ed Miliband or Nigel Farage.

Can't they find something important to fill the newspapers? There isn't exactly a shortage of far more significant things happening.
