Gordon Brown on the couch

Interesting piece on the Man who would be King in the Telegraph today, which includes this oddity:

"..as one member of the Chancellor's inner circle puts it: "People want to feel that a politician is somebody they'd like to have on their sofa. You wouldn't mind having Gordon on your sofa, but you might feel you have to bring out your best china. Gordon's got to lighten up."



I don't know about the rest of you, but if Broon was on my couch I could imagine him as being the dinner party guest who just will not leave, and has bored everyone away with his neoendogenous growth theories and is making substantial inroads into the port. A friend's father (a Legion d'Honneur holder...) deals with such characters by offering them orange juice, hoping they will get the message.

I for one would bore him with my views on how he's mis calculated inflation,been lucky with his growth forecasts and how he's living in cuckooland if he thinks tax receipts are gonna rise to clear his debts.

I don't think anyone would invite him a second time....

And I am enjoying the Hitch fest over yonder.

Funny isnt it , if he had only kept quiet (+:,
He actually sent me several emails complaining about something I had said about him elsewhere (under my real name)

I would have thought he preferred a mug to a china cup.
