And then this astounding waffling which might have come direct from the Wentworth Waffler himself. Or is it a leftist contagion, the new style for socialists? Assault by platitudinous blather!
As a child I had a corner bedroom with a big bay window opening onto dark trees. When, as kids do, I worried about a bogeyman coming in to get me, I’d send up a silent prayer: “Just let him be smart”. An intelligent bogeyman, I figured, was one you could reason with. It was the stupid, emotion-crazed bogeyman, inaccessible to logic, you had to fear. I feel the same now about Malcolm. Already, after only a few weeks, the country feels different.
