Watching ruth kelly tonight something struck me, and it wasn't the Mrs' shoe. Apart from the fact she took full responsiblity for a descision that is rumoured to have been taken by someone else (notice that has been leaked), as opposed to hanging some poor sod from out to dry, she has similar mannerisms when delivering statements as our tony. The same lip curls and hand jive, and the same sort of stacato delivery emphisis, where the pauses always seem inserted rather than natural. I have noticed it in a few other ministers also. Do they all have the same coach?
