The Metaphor of the Day award goes to Alex
The European issue in Britain has traditionally swung across the political
spectrum, like a cow on a rolling deck, blundering into political parties
and sending them flying like skittles.
Harrowell, by the way, also manages to use the word "rocambolesque,"
which wipes the floor with Barry
Ritholtz’s "gravamen", and makes my
own "postlapsarian" look positively feeble. I’m beginning to think
that Al Neuharth has
a point with that "interesting bullshit" thing.
