It's rude to point

:: Education Minister Jane Hutt, in her response to an Assembly committee, says she cannot include communication problems in a definition of additional learning needs because of the "unintended consequence of casting doubt on the generality of the current formulation".
What? Is this how we are all meant to talk now? Thanks to Kirsty Williams for spotting this.

:: Is it just me, or is anyone else annoyed by how many friends Hillary Clinton seems to have? Every time she appears before an audience she points and gestures to people she apparently recognises in the front row. I wish she'd stop it

I agree. Bill Clinton used to do it, then point at someone above and wave to them too (even if there was no-one there).
Tony Blair picked up the habit too, although I haven't seen Gordon Brown do any waving yet.
