I'm normal height at 6'5". Vucic is just an inch tall, not gigantic or extreme.

This actually a riff on Rishi Sunak who feels compelled to stand on a black box behind the podium outside Number 10.

At another event he stood on the top of a step with the podium stationed on the floor in the lower room.

You'd think the UK could afford a new shorter podium so their PM could be seen over the top of it.

I suppose it's that vast conspiracy of tradition that Liz Truss complained about.

I think there was a TV programme about this. Some cinematographers prefer casting little people because it makes their heads look larger relative to their bodies so more noticeable on screen.

It all goes well until they're seen next to normal people.
