Belatedly, a quick comment on David Cameron's reply to a question asked him in Kazakhstan that he would want to be Harry Potter. In your dreams, Dave. It was widely reported that he then said people in Britain would cast him as Voldemort. Powerful evil wizard? In your dreams, Dave.

What he actually said, apparently, was ""I suspect people in Britain might want to paint me in a different role but I'll let them do that". Well, since you suggest it ... how would Dodgy Dave and his chum Georgie fit into the HP world?

Well, we have a career politician who seemed affable enough when not faced with any serious problems, but turns nasty when criticised, and has shown an unprincipled tendency to operate solely on the basis of what he thinks will keep him in the top job. He has a sidekick who seems to take a smirking relish in devising spiteful ways to kick those who are already down, especially when they're not his own "sort" -- a group who consider themselves a natural elite.

Yes, I think we're looking at Fudge and Umbridge here, aren't we?
