Why, our soon to be crowned Prime Minister of course. This must have made him choke on his porridge this morning: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml;jsessionid=CUCCEVN13ABY5QFIQMGSFF4AVCBQWIV0?xml=/news/2007/03/14/nbrown14.xml "He is a control freak. He is taciturn. Secretive. He is uncooperative. And bloody moody," "One of the crucial functions of friends is to warn you of difficulties and tests of ideas that lie ahead. I have not seen that Gordon appreciated that is a quality of normal life, let alone one that is essential for government." "He is a very serious person. He does not have the light side that Blair has. I hope for his own sake that he does lighten up. The pressures of being chancellor are one thing. But the pressures of being prime minister are greater. If you cannot relax and trust those around you, those pressures can become unsupportable." "I do think he has problems dealing with people he has to work with. He finds it hard to work with people who are not 100 per cent committed, utterly loyal and uncritical. He is impervious to critical comment and objective advice. He does not like employing people who are not completely subservient to his views. "That bodes badly for someone who wants to be team leader. You can run the Treasury like that, to a certain extent, but not a government. I don't think he will be a great prime minister as I don't think at the age of 56 you can change your character." So it appears we trade in 1X obsessive control freak PM surrounded by a small cabal of yesmen and toadies who dare not even raise the prospect of doing this a different way for 1X humourless, paranoid and obsessive control freak PM surrounded by a small cabal of yesmen and toadies who dare not even raise the prospect of doing this a different way. So that will go about as well as you might expect.
