As if to underline the point Malcolm made in his previous post, here comes Iain Dale:
Sarkozy says Burkha is not welcome in France
When I first saw this headline on ConservativeHome earlier today, I must admit I wondered what John Bercow had ever done to offend the French President… More haste, less speed, as my mother used to say. I always thought that was a ridiculous expreshun.
Oh, and look! He was so taken by his own … something, he had to twitter it:
Blogpost: Sarkozy bans the Bercow. Shurely shome mishtake… http://tinyurl.com/nznrml
Such larks! Such overpowering intellect. Laugh? We nearly opened the second bottle in desperation.
To which should be appended a comment from one of Malcolm’s Tory Party acquaintances:
Whenever you have a conversation with Dale, he’s always looking over your shoulder to see if there’s anyone more important in the room.
