PLEASE MISS

You would have thought that if you were the most powerful man in the world (allegedly) that you could go to the toilet when you liked and wouldnt need to get permission. Well we now know that is not the case.

Pictures from the UN Heads of State Summit show US President George W Bush passing a note to his Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice stating “I think I may need a bathroom break? Is this possible?”. Apart from the obviously worrying fact that he needed to ask, of even more concern was that he wasn’t even sure he needed to go.

Please Miss...

History does not record Rice’s response. Nor do we know whether he made it in time. Maybe it’s a good job he stood behind that plinth to give his speech…
