Never a frown with Gordon Brown

So Gordon Brown wants us to know that he likes a “laugh and a joke” as much as other people. Hmmm. It’s never a good sign when somebody has to personally impress on other people how much fun they are, is it? Like saying “I’m cool, me”: when somebody has to describe themselves as such, you can bet your mortgage they’re not.

Perhaps now that he can finally see the light at the end of Tony’s tunnel, we will be treated to a new, jovial Chancellor? One that tells mother-in-law jokes and puts whoopee cushions under Cabinet members’ seats at executive meetings. A sort of cross between Benny Hill and John Maynard Keynes. I’m looking forward to hearing the one about the Englishman, Irishman and Scotsman walking into the pub and debating post neo-classical endogenous growth theory.

    I saw Gordon Brown doing stand up at the Brickmakers Arms a few years back, he was shit.

    Pretty good on the spoons though.
