I've been muttering at the television again over the past few days, aghast at the behaviour of the media regarding the search for Madeleine McCann. I was going to post something about it, but today I saw this, which says pretty much everything I was going to say and puts it a lot better than I would have.

So, we have a new Prime Minister. And we haven't even got rid of the old one yet.
The attempt by some members of the Labour Left to raise some kind of challenge to Gordon Brown's candidacy foundered embarrassingly, so we will have a coronation rather than a contest. I am really really annoyed about this. At least when Thatcher faced her Night Of The Long Knives there was a leadership contest afterwards; we've got Gordon Brown as Prime Minister, if the old stories are to be believed, chiefly because of a deal he and Tony made in a restaurant in Islington before Labour even came to power. God, he looked so smug today.
On the other hand, I'm watching the breaking news about Paul Wolfowitz's resignation from the World Bank right now, so the day hasn't been a complete loss.
