Our Great Leader

Simon Heffer wrote an interesting piece in yesterday’s Daily Telegraph about Our Great Leader:

"He manifestly has demons. I say this not because of the stories about him losing his temper in his office, or ripping off his microphone after what he considers to be unnecessarily forensic television interviews; I say it because of his inability to compute an argument, or a point of view, contrary to his own. It has always signalled to me a massive insecurity. It is not just that he seems incapable of accepting a challenge to his way of thinking; it is that he seems to have a fear of having to do so, a fear not just of departing from the script and having to think outside his briefing notes, but a fear also of what he might find if he did."
Remind you of anyone?
