Was disgusted to read in the Daily Mail yesterday, Richard Littlejohn comparing Gordon Brown to Chris Langham and using the particular nasty phrase "kiddie fiddler smile"
The thing is, one doesn't expect the opposition, and by that I mean any opposition to the government, to go easy, or even be nice about the PM. After all it would be hypocritical to expect otherwise when the left dished it out without pulling punches on Margaret Thatcher.
But there are limits, and such comparisons with Gordon Brown is a step too far. There are many columnists and pundits out there in the World who are bullies and behave in a vile way that many would not get away with. I hope Littlejohn is one of those who doesn't get away with it and apologises for his feeble attempt at a joke.
