Gordon Brown to stand down

#1
The man that saved the world is standing down next election, can't recall a more vindictive spiteful man in the political world, won't be missed.

He was one of the people who, rather than growing in to a job, shrank in personality. Classic case of promotion to level of incapability.

Bugger - I thought he was going to take an active part in Scottish Labour politics.

He'll continue to be a burden on the taxpayer with the pensions he'll collect and no doubt the security he'll require. Pity there isn't some way of prosecuting him. I'd happily pay my share of the expense to see the oaf locked up.

Its not difficult to appear talented in the talent free zone that is the labour Party. Its difficult to imagine that any of them could ever hold down a real job and, funny old thing few of them ever have.

Security? The man's such a bungling oaf that I'm sure most people on both sides'll just be glad he's gone.

Betcha he keeps a car and driver as the cnut never learned to drive.
IIRC Maggie brought in a brought in the entitlement to a car and security for retired PMs because of the state of poverty that Harold Wilson was living in. In general I would agree with her. We're a relatively rich country and its hardly dignified for honourably retired former heads of government to be in straightened circumstances.

Of course the circumstances are different. Some of our previous PMs have been pretty dire - Wilson for one was hardly a great success but they have all, more or less, attempted to do their best and do the best for the common good. That cannot be said of the oaf Brown. He was completely self serving. He didn't give a damn about the damage he was doing to the country as long as it served his narrow personal interests.

Ditto his predecessor, who despite being a republican had a very royal view of himself.

Perhaps he'll now have the time to visit some of those historic WW2 sites he used to make stirring speeches about, like the Battle of Allemagne and Obama Beach. If he needs specialist military advice then I'm sure the Paratroop Regiment will be glad to help.

I bet his constituents probably thought he stepped down in 2010

His going should double the average IQ of the Commons.

No doubt a glowing future awaits him as a much sought-after speaker on Economics.

Don't you mean "twice", once when the inept moron was made Chancellor, when he totally f**k*d our economy with his wisdom. Secondly when he became PM.
Pity the c**t wasn't sectioned. Mind you the twat Blair must take a bit of the blame for allowing him near a Ministry.
Bearing in mind Milliband was one of his acolytes during that period possibly explains a lot about his wonderful, not, personality and stupidity.
