Jack Straw - caped crusader

Well I must say, I do see Jack Straw in a new light today.

On four different occasions he has tackled criminals, men who have burgled, assaulted, robbed and attacked others.

He is using his personal experience to change the law in favour of what he calls the good citizen who decides in a few seconds to tackle the fleeing hand-bag snatcher, or whatever they may be.

Fancy that, Jack Straw, Superman.

Good for him, I am proud of him, and what a good citizen he is. I genuinely think that.

However, I cannot help thinking, unkindly, about cartoons of John Major with his underpants on the outside.

The real question must be whether Steve Bell feels that way too
