- Reading from an autocue obscuring his face at his “Gordon for Britain” launch.
- Tucking his trousers into his sock.
- Getting lost at Windsor Castle Dinner for Sarkozy to the amusement of Her Majesty.
- Locking himself in the toilet and having to ring Blair on his mobile to get him out.
- Absent mindedly picking his nose for two minutes on the front bench on budget day 2007 in full view of the Tory ranks and TV viewers.
- Getting entangled in balloons at a photo-op.
- After an interview with Adam Boulton in India, getting up and walking into a plant pot.
- Forgetting the access codes for his own office resulting in a No. 10 armed security response unit rushing to find him in his nightie.
- Telling the same anecdotal jokes time and again and still screwing them up.
- Trusting Blair to keep his word after the Granita dinner.

Not sure what the booze situation is tonight in Westminster for the Centre for Policy Studies seminar on Politics, Policy and the Internet, the invitation doesn’t say. George Osborne is a big Politics 2.0 advocate of the power of the web and he is headlining it along with Tom Steinberg.
At exactly the same time over at Bloomberg’s offices in the City, Jeremy Hunt, the DCMS Shadow, is talking about the New Media Politics Revolution. Booze is clearly highlighted on the invite.
