Two things to rule them all

They have joined the pantheon of ministers' binary attributes, alongside the two Jags of John Prescott, the former deputy prime minister, and the two minds of Vince Cable, the business secretary, who was uncertain whether to vote for the tuition-fee regime he himself had proposed.
