Just when GB (ah, 'GB for GB' - now that is stuff campaigns are won on, surely?) thought a reality-TV race row over a Bollywood actress was enough to threaten his high-profile visit to India, it got worse. Forget the real issues our Chancellor was set to address in Bangalore; like, oh I don't know, hi-tech miracles and world trade; instead let's force him to voice his criticism on a programme he is unlikely ever to have watched and then fend off petty cliquey office politics; burnishing his credentials as an international statesman and prime minister in-waiting. And you thought you were having a bad week?
But, c'mon Gordo, let's forget but never forgive. That is the hallmark of the truly great feud. Never forgive or reconcile. Never back down. Land the first blow and extract the last laugh. Above all, take the fight to the enemy. I know, the rules of modern politics dictate you must conduct your quarrel in venomous whispers. But once, just once, I would love to see you square up to Tony, poke him in the chest, and declare: “So, you think you’re Tony Blair?”
But, enough of that. All of this hatred has got my pump primed for a night of pleasure hating at insanely popular, Mark Watson's "I'm Worried I'm Starting to Hate Almost Everyone in the World" comedy show at the Soho Theatre. Tonight to Sat. Returns only. 0207 429 6883
