I have been in love continuously since I was 15. I must love to be in love. Or, maybe it is still a novelty. I was born and raised in Kampala, Uganda. For us, Asian Shia Muslims, marriages were smart deals between families based on economic advantage and genetic improvement. Marrying up was a good move a dark boy getting a fair girl even better. My generation inspired by pop songs and Hollywood was the first to reject arranged marriages and go for Romance, big time.

There's a mood shift I sense in the matter of Gordon Brown. As long as we avoid the subject of history, I don't get the same urge to tear my own head off and throw it at him when he speaks. I hope I'm not sick. Even the arrival and endorsement of George Bush, the multilateral cretin, failed to produce expected levels of revulsive indignation. Have the reserves been depleted? Have we passed peak bile? Do we need a strategy for sustainable disgust? Renewable nausea? Have we squandered our resources? Has he exhausted us?

The conclusions of the new political memoir that is creating a stir in Washington are pretty unremarkable. We are told that the Bush administration was engaged in "manipulating sources of public opinion" over Iraq and "downplaying the major reason for going to war". President Bush himself exhibited a "lack of inquisitiveness" and the real driver of policy in the White House was the Vice President, Dick Cheney. So much of this has become conventional wisdom.

The intensely private George Bush had another emotional moment yesterday when he discussed how he overcame his drinking problems through religion.

The left-wing literati of London and New York were surely in a stew last night after one of their leading and most loyally liberal lights, David Mamet, confessed that advancing years have given him a greater appreciation for things conservative.

Anyone who imagined that, with the clock running down on his tenure in the White House and America's attention concentrated on the election of his successor, George Bush could do no more serious damage to America's reputation in the world must now surely be rueing their complacency.
