Proof positive that they inhabit an entirely different planet

Quite apart from the fact that I feel absolutely soiled from reading the rag, this line from an interview in The Guardian with Gordon Brown ("Only we have the answers, insists Gordon Brown") absolutely made my blood boil:

"The prime minister reinforces his message by echoing Neil Kinnock's famous "I warn you not to fall ill" speech on the dangers of a Thatcher victory."

How can the man have the *gall* to sit there and spout this drivel when the papers are full of a report on the utter, utter, abject failings at Staffordshire due entirely to his "government's" appalling, criminal mismanagement? He *at least* should have asked the paper to remove this line if he has any shame at all.
The man is seriously deluded.

That's prison life for you....

Well known philanthropist Conrad Black on life inside, as reported in The Times today:

(Conrad Black) .... refuses to concede that his social life has been harmed by his incarceration.
"My circle hasn't so much changed as expanded".

So that's a lifetime's supply of soft cushions for Mr. Black, please.
