One blogger’s personal bridge to nowhere

Britain’s parliamentary circus

I — unlike, I’m sure, every other politically well-informed American — had never previously watched an episode a session (oops, I guess I’ve used that one already) of British parliament before.  Flash Gordon Brown’s “save the world” quip tempted me too much to resist, though.  The actual gaffe is not that noticeable; what is most ridiculous is the scene of the parliamentarians behind him hooting and waving newspapers up and down.

I can only assume that every session goes just about like this.

UPDATE: At least Brown didn’t get a shoe thrown at him.
