Apparently in my enforced absence from British shores, a balding man in his early 20s has split up with his missus. This, apparently, is the cause not simply of acres of newsprint being churned out on the subject, but - oh yes - is actually a valid subject for political comment.
"They should be left alone now without reams of stuff being written"
Sorry, WHAT? The Sun newspaper and the less imaginative members of British society being concerned about the sex lives of staggeringly tedious purpose-less posh people (i.e. The British Royal Family), yes. I don't like it, but I accept it.
But the Prime Minister?
Mr Blair, despite serious effort having been made on your part over the years, you've never looked more pathetic.
