The miserable, whingeing, whining, complaining, pointer out of the truth nearly ran me over at Horse Guards when he was cabbying around in his Bedford CF.....Absolute top man, wish there were more like him in the upper echelons.
Pull yourself together sir and get out of that bed.
I'm hoping that this is the old buggers form of a 'wah' - get the media all worked up, thus ensuring that the 'Death crew' have to spend the next 2-3 days stone cold sober and unable to enjoy christmas, just in case he heads off. End result, lots of frustrated media hacks, sober, working over xmas and thoroughly pissed off. Well played Sir, well played indeed!
I also hope that he recovers quickly, he is an absolute legend and example of the best that this country has to offer.
