If you are in the public eye, more particularly if you are a politician, then you are always likely to be on the receiving end of an insult or put down and some of these can be very amusing. A link from a blog I was reading led to a piece by Sue Cameron at FT.com regarding the woes of our government. In it she mentions the possibility of Alistair Darling losing his job to Ed Balls and Sue records this comment by a sceptical Whitehall man: "Ed? Think Gordon Brown without the charm". Ouch!!
I like that remark as much as I dislike Ed Balls and his equally embarrassing wife Yvette Cooper.
