Brussels sprouts TS fan

TS has long had delusions of grandeur over its standing in the global political community but they are delusions no longer. European administrative affairs commissioner Siim Kallas has shamelessly plundered TS’s linking of his job title with the ministerial moniker of Yes Minister’s hapless Jim Hacker last week.

Speaking in Nottingham to the European Foundation for Management Development, his speech was peppered with references to the classic sit-com, comparing Sir Humphrey’s keeping the public (and his minister) in the dark to his own courageous commitment to open government. We know you’re reading, Mr Kallas.
