Talking heads

In an otherwise unremarkable piece on the growth of rudeness in modern society (I believe Homer had a similar complaint), The Independent on Sunday asked Boris Johnson for his opinion. His response was quite clearly dictated over the phone either while he was washing the dog, seducing the nanny or otherwise occupied in an absorbing and technical matter:
There is an abdication of responsibility by adults. I blame their cringeing wetness in the face of the growth of children's rights and their pathetic inability to reclaim the streets. I blame the Labour government and their general outlook on life. Gordon Brown is a big girl's blouse and Labour should be kicked out as soon as possible.
Simple, concise and admirably cogent.
