When George Bush arrived in Britain last week as part of his "farewell tour", the real reasons for the visit were buried well out of sight. The tour was not, as the Guardian suggested, a mere "continental au revoir".

Their relationship described by Buchanan as a "communion" led to unkind and homophobic remarks being made at that time and indeed provide amateur etymologists with the first such instances of such insults.

It is very important to remain calm, dignified, elegant, confident and unflapped at moments like this. (Do not try and run away in heels like that).
