The Toughest Job in Politics

It is apparently “Blue Monday”, according to shrinks today is the most depressing day of the year due to the combination  of factors. Apparently the weather, debt level (personal rather than national), time since Christmas, time since failing new year’s resolutions (Mrs Fawkes hasn’t noticed the disappearing whiskey bottles yet), low motivational levels and feeling of a need to take action. Each year lazy tabloid hacks get a cheap story out of the day, but it must be noted that “Blue Monday” is going to be particularly hard for one woman.

Helen Scott Lidgett is an old friend of Sarah Brown, they used to work together at Sarah’s PR company and then at Brunswick, she has now been bought into the bunker for what must be the toughest job in both politics and PR – giving Gordon an intensive pre-election makeover.  It’s going to take more than airbrushing to turn the Prime Mentalist into someone that can actually be allowed out to meet the general public.

Her predecessor, Nicola Burdett (Sion Simon’s other half), was last heard of recuperating from suspected Nokia-related injuries in Barbados. Guido hopes Helen has the patience of a saint and an ability to duck…

    Sir William Waad says:

    Gordon might respond better to a more confident approach rather than Ms Lidgett being patient. He is a bully, but insecure, so establishing a degree of conditional dominance over him at the beginning is essential, i.e. she must take charge of all matters relating to image and presentation. Mandelson has already done this. “You’re going to be humiliated if you don’t do what I say” is the line for her to take.

    Brown and Cameron are both more attractive to women than to men, I think.

    tall order sowing brown as a normal, well adjusted human being. he turns up at primary schools, for a stage managed ohoto shoot, but somehow he avoids taking questions, in effect the kids are human shields protecting brown from scrutiny.

    there was a news clip recently when the great man arrives at a school, but parents had seen him and were booing loudly. then again he was booed at wembly with merkel, booed by dday veterams in june, which makes me wonder what sort of reaction he received at the last football match he saw – was it man u v everton?

    however the new pr guru should be presented with this quote from marr’s old hag.

    ” But one leading minister, asked for an assessment following the attempted coup, says simply: “We are fucked. We are so fucked, completely and utterly fucked.” Just now, that is a pretty sober assessment.”

    how does she sort that one out?

    If her job is to get Brown electable, she will have to become an expert in postal votes and othe “techniques” for improving Labour’s performance without actually persuading anyone to to vote for them.

    In reality she will just increase the Labour Party’s overdraft and not affect the election outcome at all. Everyone despises Brown and it’s too late to change it (for reference I have hated Brown since I first was made aware of him in the late 80’s).

    (a) a “friend” of “Sarah” “Brown” of Wallis-and-Hobbsbawm fame, or that
    (b) she is “helping” the Gordon Brown thingy.

    She was probably beginning to turn into an ageing “hippy” in the 1960s or early 1970s – I would put a radiocarbon-date on her at about then.

    Ageing hippy females all have ling bony noses, very arched eyebrows (they think it’s ethnic) and loads and loads of frizzy blak hair. Out of camera-shot is a very (very) long thick skirt made of organic saffron fibes or something.

    3 Surgeons are playing golf.

    The first one tells a story about a bloke who lost his arm in a factory, how the surgeon sewed it back on in a 9 hour operation, and how the guy is now a world class tennis player.

    The second tells a story about a bloke who lost his leg in a farm machinery, how the surgeon sewed it back on in a 15 hour operation, and how the guy is now a world class long distance runner.

    The third tells a story about a bloke who lost his head in a car accident, how the surgeon tried to sew it back on in a 19 hour operation, but failed. In desperation they got an old turnip, drew a smiley face, stuck a bit of a wig on it and it seemed to work. Unfortunately the guy is now the PM.

    By the way, our Tone (aka The Grinning Chimp) will be lying to the Chilcot Enquiry on the 29th.

    Are you related to ‘ Brown – as much charisma as a fallen Sadam statue’ by any chance?

  267. 267
    The Hon. Loretto Fettes says:

    I had a nightmare last night that Brown was actually a reasonably normal and approachable person. He therefore had a tiny chance of winning the election.

    I was so happy when I woke up and realised he was still an extremely odd person and a bully and therefore “completely and utterly fucked”.

    re 171 Doris above:–

    Talking of guns. First time I was in The USA on business I booked a cab from the hotel to get to the company office. I started chatting to the driver.
    He told me he’d just got out of prison for murder. Bloody hell I thought what do I do now? Keep calm I said to myself it’s not a long journey, so I just kept chatting. Yea he said “my wife & kids left me because of the drink and drugs, so I tried to kill myself. I got the gun to my head & pulled the trigger AND MISSED”. “The bullet hit the guy across the street and killed him, so I spent 10 years in jail”. “Tough deal” I said as I gave him a very big tip and ran into the office.

    And the moral of the story is…. No point in giving Gordon a gun, the incompetent bar steward would miss. If you want a job doing properly, do it yourself.

    She looks highly qualified.And could then make

    Whilst discussing the Scargill stuff ask your local lefties to explain a. the legality of the pit head ballot. b. Why was the UDM formed and c. the involvement of NACODS.

    Aah, Yes.. the Scottish Parliament building. As it’s you guv, no more than forty mill. Ooops sorry that should be four hundred mill!!

    Britain’s olympic stadium. As it’s you guv no more than 2.7 billion. Ooops sorry that should be ten billion.

    And as for that Fred the Shred, how come he can cause such a cock up get a gold plated pension and then swan off into a highly paid “advisory” job? I thought that was only for clapped out politicians?

    Maybe the light has gone on? Without GB in charge the public teat to pay the NGO/Tranzi/Fake Charity/Climate Changer/Focus Group/Trade Union or any other useles sponging Labour voting wankfesters will soon have no money and the similar PR firms no clients.

    The Royal Navy has a Royal Turd, collected on Britannia, freeze-dried and sprayed gold. The top brass have been trying to hunt it down, without success, for years.

    Jesus H Christ! That woman may well sit on a lot of worthy committees and live in trendy Camden or wherever but has she actually any track record at polishing megaturds the size of Gordon? IN fact, apart from being an ex-art teacher, air kissing a lot of luvvies and having a Nokia glued to her lughole (safest way to hold a Nokia in Broon’s presence) what the feck has she actually done.

    If this wasn’t so tragic it would be comical. Ugger I’ll have to clen up an extra tumbril.

    If you need dole, for fucks sake don’t tell them about your savings!

    They would rather see you skint, and in their debt, than let you have that safety net to fall back on.

    You never know what crisis could be around the corner, and 16k could come in very handy indeed.

    Besides, you have probably paid more than enough tax to justify a few quid back.

    Lying is the new honesty.

    Especially at Jobcentre Double Plus Good.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
