Gordon Brown dangerously unwell

:D

Already lost bladder function (allegedly), losing sight (allegedly) and the ability to think rationally.

Poor man has my sympathy.

Will get even more once he resigns :wink:

Thank you for the excellent information.

Just hope he isn't replaced by Harman.
"A new study to come out of Germany says that during the atrocities of the Nazi period, the women were just as bad as the men, if not worse. Looking at the Labour benches today, that figures."

Trying to work out what's wrong with this. Let's examine this. He said

"One eyed (factually correct) Scottish (factually correct) idiot (matter of opinion but I think we are allowed that :D ).

Seems all right to me :D

Clarkson for PM!

Firing party?

If we used a rope, we could chop it into little bits afterwards and put them on eBay - ought to raise enough to help with the crisis...

If we auctioned off the right to be the hangman,we would definitely raise enough cash to see this crisis through......

Some economic definitions:


Recession, when some people loose their jobs.

Depression, when a lot of people loose their jobs.

Recovery, when Cyclops looses his job.

Gordon the Gormless dangerously unwell? Physically, I’m not so sure, but psychologically, he does present another classic case of catastrophic overestimation of his own importance – other classic cases being Phoney Tony and Bush the Bewildered, to name but two.

The whole world lives and dies, is made or broken on the simple fact that everybody’s first thought is to decide whether to look up to, look down upon or, grudgingly, across at a contemporary. This is the motivation for all that we do.

Gormless Gordon, in his inestimable insecurity, wanted nothing more than the top job to which he thought he was entitled. It’s doubtful if he ever gave a real thought to what he'd do once he got it.

He’d already been in charge of the country’s finances for a decade or so, and had thus thoroughly succumbed to that most insidious and, ultimately, destructive of notions, the “Perfect Leader Syndrome”. This occurs when deeply insecure folks are given positions over others and feel that they not only have to order them about, but also to be superior to them in every way - including any and all knowledge. This means that they regard themselves as the yardstick for everything. A typical case in point would be Phoney Tony’s utterly arrogant statements on gene-altered crops. There’s no way he could ever be an expert on the subject, but in spite of that he summarily dismissed any dissenting views as far-fetched and uninformed. Does anybody remember that?

The unfortunate fact is that this syndrome leads to any longer-term leader believing that s/he has the only view of the world that’s really relevant, and that any other opinions introduced are of no consequence and are only intended to unnecessarily aggravate and detract from the “real” deal as envisage by “the master”.

Gormless Gordon’s dilemma is that he was handed the leadership he so utterly coveted at a time in which genuine leadership was urgently necessary, instead of just wandering smilingly around and nodding sage acceptance at his own ostensible omnipotence – as his slimy predecessor had done. The big problem was that our Gordie was never really a leader, since he’d relied his whole life on others to give him a clue and when he was called on, all he had to offer was his own, theoretical and less than optimal, theory of how things should be. Should be. But they’re often not!

It’s interesting to note that the UK had an option in 1997 to elect a sociopathic Blair to the premiership, or a sociopathic Brown. In other words: do you want your country to be run by nutter A or nutter B. Food for thought?

Are you implying that Mandy wants to fill Cyclops's slot?

Er, wasn't the 1997 choice between Blair and Major?
