After about 5 years in power or their second victory they forget what it's like to be in Opposition and think that it's their power to exploit. Every party would do the same and it usually gets especially bad when they know they're going to be out of a job within a year or so.
That said, Broon is a real throbber who in a real job would be the boring smelly twat who mysteriously gets left off all lunch/party invitations. He is even more of a throbber now since he stopped doing his Darth Vader impression at the end of every sentence.
