What a strange experience. We’ve all been brought crashing down to Earth immediately – not five minutes to catch our breath – and no-one’s really sure why. Certainly his points were valid and a period of quiet, measured reflection is useful – necessary – but after a few words of moderate praise or thanks or something. His humour is fast becoming an acquired taste and he’s starting to alienate himself from us. His views weren’t necessarily shared by everyone and one or two quietly said as much with carefully chosen words said elsewhere in other company. It has left us wondering what comes next.
