Politician in talking sense horror!

After this morning's narky post about Tony Blair's language, here's one to redress the balance and prove that not all politicians use weasel words and Nu-Labour jargon to hide the absence of any real policies (there I go again...).

Tony Banks, who died last week, was one of the few decent lefties left in the Labour Party, but more to the point a man that had a wicked way with words and was a master of put-downs. An article in The Guardian a couple of days ago reprinted some of his wittiest quips. Worth a look for a bit of entertainment and to see some good language play in action...
