Is Brown on the verge of a mental collapse

#1
There are rumours circulating both in the Westminster village and on Guido's blog that our Great Leader is on the verge of a psychological breakdown. Indeed, a rumour went around stating that after Brown's press briefing on Monday he swamped himself. :lol: Actually, it's not funny really, since he is the man in charge of saving the world. :x

WTF is going on, and if the rumours are true then a motion of no confidence should be proposed immediately. That monkey is turning us into a banana republic.

I'm bloody busy too. But not making money. I'm having a clear out in time for the gas engineers to come and replace and relocate a new boiler (floorboards up, etc/no hot water or central heating for a week) and trying to help a student nurse improve her final essay which needs to be submitted tomorrow (WTF do I know about nursing?). I envy you you profit taking barsteward.

Cut and paste as requested:

Jon Craig reports that last night

Labour MPs claim a "tearful and dewy eyed" Prime Minister called the Labour waverers into his Commons office one by one and pleaded with them to back the Government. If we lose this vote it will de-stabilise the Government and de-stabilise the markets," said the embattled Prime Minister, according to one MP who voted with the Tories despite the emotional appeal.

Given Gordon's emotional instability (he is upset that cartoonists draw him as fat) it may well be that if Gordon resigned it would actually stabilise the government as well as give the markets a boost. Gordon's mental health is being openly discussed, Iain Martin has a euphemistic piece in the Telegraph today recounting government ministers fears that the Prime Mentalist is "psychologically incapable";

he is stuck... saying basically the same thing over and over and over again. I have said before that from the country's point of view it risks becoming disturbing: now it really is.

It can only be that the PM has constructed something inside his head which he passionately believes to be the truth. If he was to admit even the tiniest doubt about one element of it then the entire construct might collapse.

Inside his head we know what he thinks, he is "the saviour of the world" doing the right thing, solving global ills not of his making and unbelievably yesterday Downing Street said Brown was right and the IMF was wrong. At PMQs yesterday Cameron demanded a reality check from Gordon to no avail. He would not admit that, even by his own definition, Britain was bust. If Gordon admitted he had not abolished "boom and bust" he would smash his internal "constructed truth" delusion. Blair was right, Brown is psychologically flawed. It is no longer a personal tragedy, it is at the root of the national political and economic disaster unfolding.

A rumour went round after Monday's disastrous press briefing that Gordon had wet himself. Guido didn't report the story because he was unable to substantiate it from the video evidence. That it was even rumoured and given any credence whatsoever shows that people in the Westminster Village think he is a man close to the edge of total breakdown. The humiliating truth is that Gordon Brown is not mentally fit for purpose.

Wasn't this pre-warned before the Great leader left and became a Saint? Was it not Campbell or some other slime who said that Brown was 'unstable'?
Anyway, how can you tell, with all the lunatics in the cabinet and government already?

I thought GB literally wrote the book on courage!

I've said it before, it's like the old saying, "If you have to tell someone you have class, you don't!"

Perhaps he has realised that he is to blame for our economic difficulties. He pissed away our assets while the going was good (when others would save) and now he has noone to blame but himself. I for one have little sympathy as he has shown little regard for others throughout his time in government.

What is the formality for officialy deposing a PM? Has it ever been done in the UK?

Surely as he has got us into another fine mess he will be have to stick around to bale us out? Even if he does smell like a tramp.

(Excuse my lack of research, busy, I am in fact currently fighting the good fight at the moment - on the world commerce stage and making money for the UK from Euro companies who are buying our UK made product ...which will be taxed and then turned into hospitals...or bank baleouts or something.)
(My Bold) I believe that in theory The Queen has the right to sack the Govt should they not be acting in the best interests of the country. We must only be weeks away from wise heads approaching her Majesty and asking her to do the decent thing and put Broon out of his (and our) misery.

The real questions are can we get rid of the raving lunatic somehow and can we find a politician that will undo all the harm he and Blair have done to the country?
I'm not so sure the mess that the two of them have made can be put right

I would like to see a Military Govt :D I cannot support any of the current parties at the moment.

We need leaders who are not tainted by career politics and Westminster rhetoric.

A military Govt....mmmm....what would you do if made "war lord" of your area?

Swamping himself? He's not mental - he's just trying to get into the good books of all you squaddies isn't he?

Next thing you know, he'll have the rest of the Cabinet in the Commons bar, naked and playing freckles.

yes i checked and remember from politics at school that she can in theory dissolve parliament. In reality I wander what it would take?
How many people would need to be involved? What is the procedure?
Would Brown be consulted? Would a referedum of sorts take place (doubt it, no one seems to care what we think.)
I seem to remember (from dodgy) Politics A level that I took that "The Privy Council" or a member of said council can approach The Queen and "suggest" that Parliament be dissolved. I'm not even sure that there has to be a General Election I think that the Privy Council can govern - probably find that Broon is on this council too :D

Well this morning I swamped myself, had a good dump and then got out of bed. I reckon those are pretty good ministerial credentials?

ah yes the Privy Council (who convene in the loo so as not to be overheard) I can't help but think that amongst the miriad of news laws Labour have introduced (and retracted e.g. cannabis) that they have meddled with the mechanism to protect themselves somehow. It is however at the core of our democratic rights and structure...not that that would put them off though let's be honest.


there are alot of them.....so who knows?

There has to be an election next year does there not? Broon may have forgotten this in his bunker.

Actually for the Tories this would be ideal as the worse the mess gets under labour the more it guarantees their 12 year plus run at Govt.....and round we go again :(

yes. the reason labour has become so contemptuous of the electorate is their dominance of parliament. we need the ruling party to have another party snapping at their heels to keep them honest. The tories were the same way before, and it will happen again when (not if) labour implodes at the next election.

It would be nice to think of his antics over the last 10 years catching up with him. Natural justice. Although BLiar seems to have made being mad profitable .................... you see how he will turn on us in the UK when he's head of Europe with Mandy as his queen. Then things will turn queer and it'll be time to use my dual Canadian citizenship to get the feck out of here. Even my wife won't be able to argue with that !! (No, that might be over-exaggerating somewhat - she could argue against anything I want to do).

Lucky for him that he's indexed linked against this mess. I'm blooddy not !!

Mind you, I'll look after his missus in the bedroom dept: she's one of those women I fantasize about but can't work out why. Sound like i'm heading for the funny farm too ! Yipee - how lucky the fool ..........etc,etc.
