You can't beat the old ones

Some years ago Ian Paisley MEP wanted to buy stamps from the European Parliament's post office but found to his disgust that the only ones available had pictures of Pope John Paul II, commemorating his visit to Strasbourg. Paisley reluctantly bought them but then returned complaining that they would not stick. The stamp seller explained, "Monsieur Paisley, you're spitting on the wrong side".

I tried to reply to your e-mail, but it's broken somehow. Anyway, I've just read the whole of this blog and I feel that, combined with Blair's resignation, it makes prime procrastination fodder.
