The spoiled apple doesn't fall far from the rotten tree.
Ironically, it might be a case of the younger son getting less attention meaning he *didn't* turn out such a rancid self-serving sociopath.Oblomov wrote: ↑Thu Jul 02, 2020 12:34 pmThe spoiled apple doesn't fall far from the rotten tree.
I really ought to look more into Stanley's fatherhood techniques and see if it doomed his son into being a loathable wretch like Cummings' mother did to him. It's a mystery that Jo Johnson has turned out as (relatively) decent as he has.
Even when Sir Keir Starmer gets the better of Boris Johnson at PMQs, as he did yesterday, it's hard to declare him the outright victor.
For all the Labour leader's clever clogs queries and forensic abilities, he remains the most insipid figure at the despatch box. Drab. Dull.
Trouble is he's such a lawyer. Not the sort of glamorous slick shooter you see in US legal dramas, dressed tip-to-toe in Armani and yelling 'objection, your honour!' with manly vigour.
No, Sir Keir is a real life legal eagle, one of those prodding, probing bods obsessed with statistics and mind-numbing details that leave poor jurors bamboozled. https://mol.im/a/8481549
