Plodding on

Incredible as it may seem. Gordon Brown (well, his office) is on Twitter. His tweets are exactly in character, that is to say, cringe-making. Here’s the latest one, for example:

PM: Many congratulations to Fabio Capello & England team for qualifying for the 2010 World Cup Finals with an emphatic win against Croatia.

It’s the kind of thing he would write, too. This, after all, is the guy who could take time to congratulate the England cricketers on winning the ashes while being unable to comment on the decision to release the Lockerbie bomber.
