Journalistic genius from Mark Steel. (funny).

Robot Gordon BrownI wasn't going to be posting today, but I came across this excellent article by Mark Steel of the Belfast Telegraph (Well it made me laugh):

Has Gordon Brown been replaced by a robot?

Oh no. It's got to the point where you start pitying him. Poor Gordon Brown comes on television for a press conference and you feel he's about to say, " Um, right. Er oh this is harder than it looks. I'm a bit nervous."

Then his colleagues, just out of shot whisper, "Go on Gordon, you can do it – go on Gordon, read from your notes, uh-oh he's wet himself." And Tessa Jowell has to go and get a mop.

Eventually, when he gets going, he attempts to rescue his situation by saying, "I believe the British people will see that every day I seek values, and the values I value most are the hard-working families of the British people. Yes, there are difficulties, but if those difficulties prove difficult I will value those difficulties 0.6 per cent higher in real terms than in any other hard-working country in Europe."

One possibility is that, inspired by The Stepford Wives, Blair had the real Brown murdered and replaced with a robot. And this will come to light when, during an interview, Andrew Marr stabs him in the leg and Brown says "That wasn't very nice Andrew, I'm in this job for values, val-val-values higher growth than Japan that wasn't very nice Andrew."

Be interesting to see if anyone can find conclusive evidence that he's NOT a robot based on press conferences, speeches and policy decisions. He steals Conservative policies, churns out the same speeches, and always quotes the same figures at press conferences.

This man is supposed to be running the country for God's sake.
