Every time I switched on the radio today one of the princes was there to depress me. Lost lads trying to do the right thing and all that, but they've both got a bit missing, haven't they? Only question is, is it the same bit? (Just asking.) Gordon was there, of course, sitting with Tony Messiah. Which reminds me - the only thing worse than hearing whichever prince it was struggling to do justice to the occasion was the re-runs of Tone's grisly "people's princess" spiel. Once more, I am reminded of how wonderful it is to have him gone. And with that, over to Martha Kearney on Gordon's difficult balancing act with the public sector unions:
"A few headlines about standing up to the unions may help his standing more generally but strikes and disruption would surely tarnish his honeymoon. A disgruntled party may not want to pull out all the stops in an election campaign."
Sounds like serious politics will be resuming soon. Are you awake, Your Majesty?
