Is Gordon A Handshuffling Bundle of Nerves?

    He’s very, very nervous.
    The hand clasp is defensive body language, putting his hands between himself and the media. Similar to folding your arms, but more pronounced.
    The tie stroking is a sign of a lack of confidence, he is stroking himself for reassurance.
    The tell, after tell, after tell is a sign that he knows he is doing it and is constantly trying to hold onto the lectern but his nerves and lack of confidence win out.
    And this guys is PM?

    Maybe the shuffle-down motions are reminding him of his budgets at the despatch box, where he could regularly turn pages and grip. A memory of simpler times?

    Still, he is a nervous beggar and stutters more and and and and and more at PMQs.

    It is embarrassing for Britain that we have a Prime Minister who is clearly and most publicly afflicted by mental illnesses such as obsessive compulsive disorder and paranoia. Even Olmert is clearly disturbed by Brown’s obvious displays of neurosis.

    I have OCD and i find the use of such a dissoerder for politcal jokes to be offensive and disgusting. OCD is a mental illness. Chuchill had a serious mental illness would wankers like you have stopped him gaining office. Yes

    Olmert is wondering why he’s being addessed by Ricky Gervais.

    He was told it would be the Prime Minister of Great Britain, not a shuffling nerve-bag of incompetent middle maagement straight from pseudo-reality TV.

    He looks confused, bored and has no idea what the hell Gordo is trying to say. That’s because Gordo has no idea what he’s trying to say either.

    Olmert has given Gordo a Baby Wipe and told him to scrub those hands clean. He will not shake hands with a man who picks his nose, scratches his arse and kisses King Abduhllahs ring.

    Watch out for Olmert looking so bored at around 20 seconds to go that he almost starts picking his nose, before one of Gordons team tells him off…

    I hated Blair, but he was a million miles better than Gordo, at least he looked like a statesman ever so often…

    Brown has OCD, is this news? I noticed it when he kept rearranging his paper pile at the Commons.

    Nerves are not the same as OCD. David Beckham as the latter, apparently, but not the former. Bliar was full of nerves too, but not as obviously as Gobbler Gordo.

    I always thought ties were phallic symbols – and now we see Gordon stroking his tie! That is so disgusting but on second thoughts only what we would expect from him.

Rob Colvile reviews Russell Brand’s new book:

“Oddly, the person I feel sorriest for isn’t Brand himself – although he certainly comes across as a rather pitiable figure, projecting his own brokenness on to the world around him – but Johann Hari. Drummed out of Fleet Street for plagiarism, the former Independent columnist has washed up as “my mate Johann, who’s been doing research for this book”. For a genuinely talented polemicist, it would have been a humbling experience to have to treat this sub-undergraduate dross as the scintillating wisdom of a philosopher-king.”



Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
