Prescottian Logic

From the Today programme:

"The big decisions are right, but I hear people say 'I don't like this smile'. For god's sake do you go on an aeroplane and ask the pilot has he got a smile or not? Can he land the plane?"

What Prescott doesn't understand is that it's not the smile in itself that's the problem. If Brown was competent and honest, and not a social and political retard, we wouldn't care about this creepy smile. But because Brown is an incompetent, lying and mentally disturbed man, the smile is another part of this unpleasant image. So no, I wouldn't care if my pilot had a creepy smile; I'd care if he was adamant that flying it into a mountain was the best way to land it.
