Gurgle, snort, splutter:
Sad and baffling, the tragedy of Peter Hain is the story of a rare talent wasted, but I hope not lost for good.
No mas, no mas:
His detractors portrayed it as vanity and ambition that Peter stuck to office when others left to voice opinions he either shared or had some sympathy with. But what is vain about wanting to achieve something instead of being a permanent political commentator? And what use is talent without ambition?
* tears trickle down face, fists beat upon desk*
I hope Peter will be back, pending of course a verdict on what went wrong with his campaign. We don\’t have enough politicians with his flair, resilience and daring to be able to lose him permanently from office.
Ooooooh dear, thanks John. Haven\’t laughed so hard in years.
