George Galloway's epic account of his expulsion from Egypt, accompanied as always by his Boswell and my old friend Ron McKay, makes for entertaining reading this morning.
I don't mean to undermine the nastiness of the situation he faced but Galloway's melodramatic description of being bundled into an unmarked van by Egyptian security goons is fantastic. In a single sentence (which couldn't have been written by Ron) he captures the spirit of man who is a politician to his core. "I knew we weren't going to be killed as we were able to make the necessary calls - well at least a call to the Press Association."
