Parris & Moore (Purveyors Of Upmarket Opinion) On Osborne
Given that soap opera is the intellectual level at which many of its participants seem to operate, Matthew Parris is more right than he knows when he equates the Osborne affair with 'Eastenders'.
Charles Moore notes that, "...Mr Osborne has not gone out of his way to make himself loved within his party. He does not, as they say, suffer fools gladly."
Experience of life has taught me, often quite bitterly, that those who are described as not suffering fools gladly are often themselves fools, their arrogance leading them to come a nasty cropper, their falls the subject of lashings of schadenfreude.
