"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Kicking Kinnock

The former Labour Party leader and well known millionaire trougher par excellence, European Commissioner Lord  Kinnock, was on R4's Today programme this morning.

Asked why Brown is unpopular with the public he said, "I think it has a great deal to do with the way in which almost from the outset Gordon has been represented by most of the media in a most vindictive way."

Asked how Brown can cope with the “appalling handicap” of his media image he said,“I don’t think it is an appalling handicap, because it is authentic."

I 'm not sure he meant to say that - he needs to make up his mind which it is: authentic or vindictive?  Or perhaps he meant vindictively authentic; authentically vindictive?
