Gordon Brown is a solipsistic boor, and (never mind yesterday's shenanigans) you should have realised that when he turned his back on tradition in 1997 by arriving to deliver his first Mansion House speech wearing a lounge suit - rather than the traditional black tie. It was the act of a cad and a bounder.

Thus, boorish as he is himself, his administration is one in which boorishness flourishes. This is the thread that links such apparently disparate disasters as the Damian McBride scandal, and last week's mocking of the Pope even if that particular stench emanated from the bowels of the Foreign Office.

So there.
