Hope that doesn't mean he has time to write more novels...

Oh but it does. Lots and lots more time. And short stories. And plays. And an autobiography. And lots of new material to put into them.

And he'll probably be in an open prison with a computer with internet access. He could turn up here. God, he might start writing songs...

And when he comes out he'll be all over the place. We ain't seen nothin' yet.

And the thing is, I doubt very much if, in the context of the rest of his cronies in politics, he's unusually crooked. If he was a Yank I think there's a high chance he'd be in a governor's mansion. Or maybe the White House.

I'm sure that in a popularity poll in a year or so, he'll probably score higher than most other politicians. Higher than Tony Blair or George Bush anyway.
