A little light White House-ology

Compare and contrast:

"He told Mr Brown to continue showing "integrity" and to be sure that "every day you are waking up and making the very best decisions that you can despite the fact that sometimes the cards in your hand are not very good and the options are narrow". BBC 1/4/9


"During German Chancellor Angela Merkel's White House visit on Friday, one thing topped the agenda: a show of friendship. US President Barack Obama praised Merkel to the hilt, while she returned the compliment. Politics were pushed into the background... [Obama] began with a "Wilkommen" in German, and praised Merkel's "wisdom" and "candor."...Obama greeted "my friend Chancellor Merkel." Der Spiegel 27/6/9

Get the feeling OB has just a touch more respect and amity for the Kanzlerin than the Prime Minister?

Kunzlerin, surely? :o)

I'd like to know how he kept a straight face with the 'integrity' bit!

O - Nope

Julia - It would seem OB has a well-developed sense of the absurd.

Talking of Herr Braun, I'm gobsmacked that he's allowed to get away with claiming that £2bn will build 200 000 houses. That's £20 000 to build 1 house/flat.

His figures do sound a bit iffy. Maybe the future is a lot of trailer parks.
