Straw embarrassed by comparison with Condi

Jack StrawJack Straw's tour around Blackburn with Condoleeza Rice is as bizarre as the Foreign Secretary. Gerard Baker comments:

Mr Straw was born in Buckhurst Hill in suburban Essex. He went to school in nearby Brentwood. It is not known if any iconic moments in the history of the struggle of middle-class white boys occurred in that vicinity.

Unfortunately for Mr Straw, Ms Rice's stately aura is in stark contrast to his own.
