"About as charismatic as a tin of baked beans"

A rather nice turn of phrase from Libération. Describing the man who is leading our own, dear Labour party to what may well be annihilation.

Here is the original: "à peu près aussi charismatique qu’une boîte de baked beans". The rest of the item on Brown ahead of conference is nothing especially new, but amusing quand même.

Shouldn't buy stuff in tins. Particularly when the label says Brown Baked Beans.

Beans in Conserve, on bruschetta (fagioli all'uccelletto), are delicious.

(Take fresh white beans. Boil them till almost cooked. Put freshly made tomato Conserve into a pool of olive oil containing melted garlic and lots of sage leaves. Add beans. Mix. Add small amount of ragu (bolognese meat sauce). Cook gently till beans are tender. Black pepper and salt to taste. Serve on toast that is dressed with garlic, salt and olive oil.
