Defying convention

I'm big enough to reach across the partisan divide and say that the White House snub of Michael Howard is just wrong. It has been widely reported that, apparently angered by Howard's calls for Tony Blair to resign in the wake of the Iraq war, Karl Rove told him to 'forget' about meeting the President.

If the Bush administration is prepared to breach convention and so obviously state its preference for the outcome of the next general election in the UK, surely it is fair that, regardless of our political persuasion, we do the same.

Did anyone see that thing about George W Tuesday evening? All the bloody Americans were comparing him to Churchill. Churchill had a heart attack during the war but he got right back up on the horse the next day. Bush, on the other hand, went AWOL for 17 months during Vietnam. Hardly twins are they.
Well, they both liked a drink...
