IAIN Duncan Smith has delivered a major speech on Europe by repeatedly headbutting a wooden podium.
The senior Conservative, who transcended simple speech some months ago, accused Angela Merkel of sabotaging the prime minister’s renegotiations by the medium of his percussive forehead.
Journalist Eleanor Shaw said: “You almost didn’t need to know Morse to understand him, so eloquent is he at speaking the Glasgow Kiss.
“Every time he sounded the single-dot E in Merkel it was a blow so savage, so unrestrained that you couldn’t doubt the depth and passion of his feelings on the subject.
“He went through six podiums and, in an off-the-cuff aside to a journalist, reduced a MacBook Pro to a thickness of 2mm, all without leaving a mark on that impregnable expanse of bone.
“Finally he’s speaking a language the public can understand. And respect.”
