Cameron's Week Of Chicken
He's been followed around by a tabloid journalist dressed in a giant chicken suit and today got hit by an egg wielded by a student. I have to say, reading the stories of Iraq's election, that this is kind of reassuring. Cameron did get a good line out of it though:
"Now I know which came first - the chicken not the egg."
Egging has a long tradition in British politics. Harold Wilson got egged in 1970; John Prescott got a egged at "point-blank" range and punched the poor egger.
