One-eyed idiocy

While Australia burns and the world's economies plummet, Britain is in an uproar because Jeremy Clarkson called Gordon Brown a "one-eyed Scottish idiot." Poor lamb.
The Sun reports:
Jeremy Clarkson said sorry yesterday for calling Gordon Brown a “one-eyed
Scottish idiot” — EXCEPT for the IDIOT part.

One-eyed and Scottish is certainly a correct description. Dangerous and tyrant are also good words in this context.
Whether or not he could be described as an idiot depends on your world view I suppose. In certain fields he undoubtedly excels - he could certainly teach Obama a thing or two about the stealthy acquisition of power, and the slow but steady erosion of individual rights and freedoms.

"Since when has Scottish been an insult?"

Curious that - it seems to be the Scots that are most offended by it!
