Neo con scaredy-cats

I have commented before on the cowardice of those neo-conservative writers who egg on military conflicts from the warmth and comfort of a London office, while never attempting anything more dangerous themselves than crossing a road in Canary Wharf.
One of the most bellicose of the war-loving writers is Tory MP Michael Gove. Today's Daily Mail reveals that Gove,( in addition to showing a distinct lack of enthusiasm for spending any length of a time in the Arab world- a region on which he claims to be an authority), is frightened of flying. Isn't it revealing that those who are so keen for others to risk their lives, usually turn out to be such total yellow-bellies ?

ps- No need to worry Michael! Here's a place where your condition can be treated!
