Implied textSayings: It isn't over until the fat lady sings.
NotesNews: Politicians can rarely resist the opportunity to play God. The temptation is especially strong when the object of their moment of omnipotence is so exotic a target as the Royal Opera House and they themselves are devotees of that most myth-encrusted branch of high-culture So it has proved with Gerald Kaufman and yesterday's blistering report on the mismanagement of Covent Garden, published by the Commons Culture, Media and Sport committee, of which he has been chairman since stepping down from Labour's front bench in 1992. Michael White. The Guardian.
