With a girth like his I'm surprised he can even put his boots on. Also, a remarkable recovery after the "dying swan act" earlier on this year when he was doing photo shoots in hospital in his pyjamas with the Patriarch of the Bulgarian Orthodox Church and the Chief Mufti. And now I know where he was when he was boycotting parliament - at footy training.
