    Our Beloved Broadcasting Corporation classified it as rage.

    It is clearly a clincal condition but which one?

    wow, when will labour dump him?
    i give him two more months of this and the knifes will be out.

    and about time too.

    But why couldnt Cameron answer about the EU referendum if the tories came to power?

    Is `Dave` doing the same as past tories – talking tough on Europe while being the EUSSRs poodle!
    just like Heath, Thatcher and Major!

    I am telling you, there will be men in white coats in Downing Street this sde of Christmas, the Bottler, heavily sedated, stretched out of the back door in the dead of night.

    Watch to see if in future he puts his right hand, that apparently being the naughty one, behind his back to hide it. Favourite trick of Hitler’s as his final days.

    Much as I am not made keen on the bloke it has to be said that his hand is not shaking in the way that the video implies. If you place your arm in that position (try it your’ll see) there is a point where the muscles seem to go into spasm. Note the other hand is completely still. Come on guys this is pushing the envelope in trying to paste him as someone who is “crackng up”.

    He’s also got that strangled sound in his throat – like IDS used to have.

    Dear Jim,

    Can you fix it for me for Gordon to put his shaking hand on my coffee table [in the dark].

    Yours sincerely

    Good try anonymous. But utter bollocks. If you rest either hand on a solid surface while waving the other one around, do you normally find the one at rest is shaking uncontrollably? I wouldn’t have said so.

    Further, would you then clench the same hand in to a fist?

    That looks to me the real giveaway.

    The only control he seems to be able to exercise over the shaking hand is to clench it as tight as possible. Yet it still seems to have a life of its own, shaking parkinsons-style despite his best efforts to force it to behave.

    I repeat: the men in white coats, giant syringes to hand, are on their way.

    I have rarely seen anyone so obviously on the verge on disintegration.

    It may be too much to hope for sponteous self-combustion. But I suspect the end result will not be too different.

    It’s not fair to point out the Prime Minister’s difficulties with controlling his nervous system. It shows that he is actually a much nicer person than Blair.

    Blair was so smooth when he was lying, that no one could doubt he was being honest. It’s as if, when he spoke his untruths, they became the replacement for fact – the new reality.

    As Brown lies, his Scottish Presbyterian conscience starts lashing his subconscious, and his body language is compelled to give him away. No one credits him with truthfulness even for one second. He can’t act the role.

    The only puzzle is why he bothers trying to deceive. He’s so crap at it. His reverend father would be proud. Gordon’s basically an honest boy, you know.

Gyles Brandreth writes in his memoirs:

“Sunday, May 10, 1998

Early start: appearing on Breakfast With Frost, to be broadcast from 11 Downing Street. The Chancellor [Gordon Brown] is grouchily amiable, but so earnest — and still biting his fingernails to the quick.

After the show, he took us upstairs to his flat. He lives above No 10, while Blair and family are in the No 11 duplex, which is bigger and more like a proper house.

I was intrigued that, when he took us into his bedroom, the Chancellor rather ostentatiously opened the built-in wardrobes, as if he wanted us to see the women’s frocks that were hanging in there.

They looked quite large, but I don’t think they belong to Gordon. I assume they belong to his girlfriend [Sarah Macaulay, who he later married].

I presume he was keen for us to know that he has one — and that she’s not a ‘beard’. I don’t think he does anything without calculation.”

Now the SNP know how UKIP voters feel all the time.
