When a man who is in public life goes out and makes a statement that he knows for sure will get him slaughtered, I think we should have some respect for that man. Indeed, we should find it a great pity that there aren't more like him.

After all, we are always complaining that we hear nothing out of politicians except what some 150-grand -a-year adviser has told them to say - just a bit of noise to get them through the moment.

We mourn the fact that it's "all focus groups" and Terry Prone and everyone is "on message", that there are no characters left in the game.
