Compare and contrast.
A couple of weeks ago I happened to see Tony Blair. Well, when I say I saw him, he was actually in the biggest BMW I have ever seen, driving at breakneck speed down Edgware Road accompanied by a vast retinue of ancilliary cars all with lights flashing and containing stern looking police bodyguards.
Last week, a friend of mine was driving down Great Peter Street in Westminster when the small people carrier in front of him stopped outside the block of flats by the junction with Marsham Street. Out stepped Gordon Brown and one police bodyguard.
Good on Gordon Brown for apparently eschewing the police outriders and back up car that is his by right as an ex Prime Minister.
