Brown compared to a wife beater by a leading trade unionist

"It is the most Labour speech we have heard for a decade.” Derek Simpson, Joint General Secretary of Unite, said: "It was a captain's innings - safe, solid run making but no sixes. He's Geoffrey Boycott, batting for Britain". Source

Perhaps Simpson has a limited knowledge of cricket, but a comparison to Boycott is perhaps not the one that Brown would most welcome:

"In 1996, Boycott was accused by Margaret Moore, a former lover, of assault. Boycott denied the charges, claiming she had fallen over and hit herself. He pointed to the fact that Moore was in financial difficulties and said that he would never hit a woman. However, in January 1998, Boycott was convicted before a French Magistrates court and given a three-month suspended sentence" Source.
