Flashman Gordon.


The BBC is reporting that Gordon Brown has become the first Prime Minister since the Second World War to spend a night in a combat zone.

Ok. Maybe it’s not quite as dramatic as Winston Churchill’s foolhardy determination to be present at the D-Day landings (and only being dissuaded from this by the intervention of the King).

But as wartime propaganda stunts go, this is far more impressive than – for example – George W Bush walking around an aircraft carrier and declaring victory in Iraq.
