Mark Mardell's latest blog post bears the headline Theresa May and the charismatic clowns.
The "charismatic clowns" turn out to be "Nigel Farage, Boris Johnson and of course Donald Trump" - frank, offensive, authentic men who "galumph through minefields" with a "casual disregard for the impact of words".
In contrast, Mrs May is like Hillary Clinton and Angela Merkel are women "who weigh the balance, check their language and try not to talk about themselves".
I don't think it's hard to work out where Mark Mardell's sympathies lie.
Given that a "chain of explosions" has "completely altered the landscape" now, Mark asks, "Has the mood charged towards the casual disregard for the impact of words" of the charismatic clowns? Or are Mrs May, Mrs Clinton and Mrs Merkel "striving against the mood of the times"?
