Too Good Not To Share

This little anecdote from Ben Brogan is too good not to share.

"A dour Scotsman with slept-in hair and a reputation for regular towering rages overcomes a massive points deficit by dint of plain grit and relentless application, gradually securing the affections of an English audience along the way, and in the twilight of the day wins through to victory over his flashier opponent. But enough about Andy Murray."

So said a Labour person to me somewhat wistfully earlier, as we discussed the future for Gordon Brown."
