'People with well-polished shoes generally have something to hide'

'People with well-polished shoes generally have something to hide' - Craig Brown in this week's Spectator. Everyone in Bucharest except me has well polished shoes and most have something to hide.

  1. I never saw anyone with well-polished shoes in Bucharest except at the Opera or the Atheneul Roman, and even then, not VERY polished. That's news to me....

  2. I tend to assume they are sincere, but that is what they want me to think.

  3. I rarely polish my shoes - because I'm lazy. Do married people (or people who have four wives) have more sex than unmarried ones? It's often not the case.

  4. A foreigner was talking tonight about the obsessive way Romanians polish their shoes - she preferred explanations to do with the dirt in the streets but I said all was cultural.
