Gesture Politics

Gesture politics is one way of achieving deniability.  And when in Rome... so the pollice verso given to the mention of the Brown at a meeting of anglo Italian economists and advisors was  suitably ambivalent; did they mean Brown should be despatched or spared? 

Brown's own favourite hand gesture, the clunking fist, is of course the imperial signal for 'Kill'.
