for keeping a Tim Collins Watch going while I haven’t been paying attention. Apparently he (that’s Tim, not Nick) has recently bought a Will Young CD, which is pretty shameful, and has also gone on to insist that it was for his wife, which is worse.
UPDATE [two minutes later]: Now I really am going to throw up. From the same BBC report (at the bottom): “Unveiling the conference set to the strains of remixed Elvis hit “A Little Less Conversation (A Little More Action)”, he [= Dr Liam Fox] said the aim was to be “intimate and engaging”.” Readers! Would you like to be intimate with the contemporary Conservative Party? With which current members would you prefer a little more action?
More to the political point, what planet are these people on?
