Down and Downe We Go

Guido has the latest episodes in the long running series of Gordon Brown the Jonah, who brings a curse upon any company, institution or person he visits. This week it’s Honda and Velux, the poor blighters. Of course, that all pales into insignificance compared to the jinx he’s put on the whole country since Summer 2007. Mr Fawkes does also remind us that Tinkling Gordon has also been to Sellafield. Gulp. Anyone remember the chilling ending to the film The Medusa Touch, where Richard Burton’s character’s evil telekinesis is turned on Windscale (as Sellafield then was)?

In county news, the bid to have Down House and the surrounding area designated a World Heritage Site has been endorsed by the Government, in this the 150th anniversary of the publication of Darwin’s “On The Origin of Species …”. I just hope that Brown doesn’t feel the need to visit Downe to lend his “support”.
