Margaret Thatcher milk snatcher breaks her arm. David Blunkett has his ribs broken by a cow.
In a week when Nick Griffin had eggs thrown at him, it's certainly an escalation for someone to chuck a cow at Blunkett. But the Griffin thing's not part of the true pattern. I'm seeing a cows/politicians/broken bones commonality here.
These things come in threes, so what's next? I think it'll be Peter Mandelson trampled to death by rabid buffalo. Hopefully.
