Congressman for Camden Town

I’M going to join the interview waiting list for new US congressman Ron Barber, elected in southern Arizona this week to replace Gabrielle Giffords – who resigned to focus on her astonishing recovery from being shot in the head at a shopping mall. Barber, one of Giffords’ aides, was himself shot that day and still has the dimple in his cheek to prove it.

A helpful correspondent tells me that many years ago, you could have found the boy Ron Barber living in Royal College Street, Camden Town. I wonder if he can remember the place. Maybe he can recall the Ferodo Bridge. Watching him interviewed by Piers Morgan, there is hardly a trace of a British accent. He is now an all-American politician a million miles from NW1.
