Vote blue, own goal

If you've quite finished laughing at France snatching a draw from the jaws of victory, flick over to the BBC's Politics Show website, which is runing a poll to find out the biggest political own goal this season (ie, since September 2005).

When last I voted, the top 3 were:

  • Walter Wolfgang being ejected from Labour conference = 23.30%
  • George Galloway in the Big Brother house = 17.27%
  • Patricia Hewitt 'NHS is enjoying its best year ever' = 17.16%

Me, I voted for Dave Cameron's shoe chauffeur (16.25%) - which reference is all the excuse I need to reproduce this peach of a photo from Bromley Extra:

(Hat-tip: Paul Walter.)

I thought Cameron was an expert in Media manipulation. What is he doing in a situation of conflict with an Old Age Pensioner?

Maybe he tried to high-five her and she took exception.
