Was anyone else slightly disturbed by the news footage of the G8 leaders at their Georgia summit? "Hey, we're just a regular bunch of guys - look, we don't always wear ties and look like stiffs, we like goofing around just as much as you do. That's how down-to-earth and in touch with the ordinary man-in-the-street we are. (Just ignore the helicopter gunships overhead)". For fuck's sake, the world is in their hands and it looked like a fucking golf club committee meeting - and that was before we were shown them whizzing around in little golf buggies like joyriding teenagers.
