So this is IDS's idea of Heathcliff!

On Question Time tonight Iain Duncan Smith said that he thought Heathcliff was a cartoon cat. I guess that he, like myself, has never read Wuthering Heights (I was forced to read Jane Eyre instead for GCSE) and it's nice to see a politician who is aware of culture other than lengthy novels that were seemingly designed to terrify a generation of students, especially one of the cartoons of my childhood.

So here's the intro to the second Heathcliff cartoon, thanks to YouTube:

So what would it say about Gordon Brown if he'd been comparing himself to this Heathcliff?

This Heathcliff steals other people's hard work, expects others to do his dirty work for him, makes a mess and often finds things don't work out as planned.

Maybe Gordon Brown was thinking about the cat after all!
