Frankenstein's Prime Minister

"Between them, with their complimentary respective gifts for actorly self-projection and mastering complex detail, Blair and Brown would have made one marvellous politician."

So Matthew Norman on the idea of a chimerical blend of the Granita Twins.

But he's only imagining a combination of the best parts - as he sees it - of the two of them.

Imagine the opposite. We'd have invaded Iraq with no evidence, and no support, having accused George W Bush of being a bigot. We'd have stoked up a massive financial bubble in the a City, purely to raise enough taxes to pay for alternative therapists and tennis lessons.
