It's taken a while for me to understand how the recall works and what it means. It occurs to me that a Governor must be abominably bad before people can prefer Arnold, but maybe that's the point. The other day I heard reference to The Gubernator, which shows a decent sense of elegant humour, like the speaker who called our PM 'a very cheeky Clarkie indeed'. Today: cold but dry, with a cool breeze. Early start. Don't like marmite: bad and ugly. Economist to keep me company on the train.
