The Sunday Telegraph reported this yesterday with a straight face. It need not have been otherwise for all will wonder why the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom is concerning himself with an issue of this nature. He has been described as obsessed with being micro-manager of every corner of the land but it really is absurd that he should be wasting his time with something of this nature.
I suppose it part of his desire not to be seen as a remote, control-freak weirdo Painted Pict but rather as a blokeish soccer fan you might meet down the pub.
But now that he and his Quisling party is in the process of reducing the role and power of his office down to that of Town Clerk, it may well be that in future this sort of thing will be entirely appropriate to his pay grade.
