The Government has managed to free the teacher jailed in Sudan for reasons too pathetic to deserve a mention on this blog. This must, in itself, be considered a success. Unfortunately for Brown, though, the speedy resolution of this crisis means everyone’s attention cannot be anywhere else than on Donorgate. Brown, I have always thought so, is way too good (morally, that is – only morally) to be PM.
p.s. the title is an italian proverb which best describes how Brown has not helped himself by successfully freeing the teacher.
