The Brown Nixon Elvis Conspiracy Theory Competition

Guido has been racking his brain for an explanation into the thinking behind the Elvis support act for Gordon.  Here are my top conspiracy theories:

  1. Gordon is living out a Richard Nixon fantasy, he seems himself as a man of substance and policy, like Nixon, facing defeat at the hands of more photogenic and televisual opponents, with Clegg and Cameron playing the role of Kennedy.  So since Nixon and Presley were mates…
  2. Benjamin Wegg-Prosser has a £500 bet with Mandelson on who can succeed in making Gordon look the most ridiculous during the campaign.  Still 10 days to go so Mandelson is not paying up just yet.
  3. Alastair Campbell is back on the bottle and thought it was a good idea late one night.  He did big up the whole cringe-making event.
  4. Wee Dougie Alexander produced some focus group data that showed Elvis was still king in some key demographics, old people, people without iPods, C1, D1 hardworking families. Wee Dougie has now defected to the Miliband camp…
  5. Michael Jackson was unavailable.  He is after all a well known kids entertainer…

Put your theory in the comments please, best theory wins a copy of  The Big Red Book of New Labour Sleaze, competition closes midnight.

    Since no one else can understand him and everything he does is wrong, Gordon Brown has a natural affinity with Elvis.

    Elvis was a fat useless fucker who wore nappies and died on the toilet. Brown’s most of the way there.

    Someone told GB it was the singer with the Arctic Monkies and being seen with him would give him credibility with the youth vote

    The biggest difference between Brown and Nixon is Nixon’s dead.

    Hopefully losing this election will force Brown to do the right thing and correct this aberration.

  18. 18
    Labour corrupt to the core says:

    Someone told Brown he looks like Elvis and he felt so flattered, he got an Elvis impersonator to look at every time he needs a confidence boost. What he didn’t realize is they meant he looks like the later obese Elvis.

    Perhaps Mandelbaum was hoping that “Elvis” would give Brown a pistol (as Elvis gave Nixon one).
    And then Brown would blow his fecking brains out.

    PD77 says:

    Guido, shurely shome mishtake “Mandelson is not paying just up yet?”

    under the heading “Deadwood ”
    thank you !


  35. 35
    Bath plugs for the many, not the few says:

    The plan was for Gordon to put his arm round the singer, greet him warmly and then like Cameron, pull his head off.

    Unfortunately he forgot to do what he’d been told. He’s been asking if they can go back and do a retake. Sarah Brown isn’t sure that would be a good idea.

  36. 36
    10 days to go says:

    In an attempt to connect with the young first-time voters, Mandy suggests being seen with a chart act. Gordon has heard of a young man from Memphis who is supposed to be quite good.

    GB requests ‘The Whiffenpoof Song’. “That’s not one of my most popular songs” relies Elvis “why don’t I sing…’It’s Over’, ‘I’ll Be Home For Christmas’, or ‘Softly, As I Leave You’.

  37. 37
    MAD FRANKIE HADDOCK son of COD says:

    That’s the Blunder ,the Blunder of you !

  38. 38

    Colonel Tom Parker died the year Gordon Brown became chancellor.

    Elvis was on 14 separate drugs a day when his career ended; Gordon was on 14 bananas a day when his died.

    Elvis surrounded himself with the Memphis Mafia; Gordon did so with the Fife Mafia

    Journalist Tony Scherman’s quote could be applied to either man:

    “[Elvis/Gordon] had become a grotesque caricature of his sleek, energetic former self. Hugely overweight, his mind dulled by the pharmacopoeia he daily ingested, he was barely able to pull himself through his abbreviated [concerts/appearances.”

    Elvis went gold, platinum and multi-platinum a total of 171 times. Gordon sold off the gold.

  39. 39

    Too heavy to post.

  40. 40

    Why all the fuss the electorate long decided to dump Brow at the first opportunity but as Cameron said today, the present voting system is perfect for kicking out governments, blind to the truth of complete confusion. Perhaps he can run that one past me again?

  41. 41
    simon r says:

    Brown wrote to Campbell requesting Elvis Costello to perform the new Labour campaign song – ‘Accidents Will Happen’.

    Followed by ‘Man Out Of Time’, ‘I Want To Vanish’ and Sarah’s favourite – ‘Indoor Fireworks’

    Of course, we all know Brown’s handwriting is terrible.

    You could say it was a ‘Brilliant Mistake’.

  42. 42
    Doctor Mick says:

    Is a pig’s arse pork?

  43. 43
    Chalky says:

    One of the voices in Gordons’ head is Elvis. He told him it was a good idea to eat 9 bananas a day and to agree with everything that Mandelson and Campbell says.

    I saw him crying in the chapel. Could have been worse it could have been a Roy Oribison lookalike singing “golden days before they end, make secrets to the wind. The country and your party doesn’t love you any more. It’s over, it’s over it’s ooooover, its over.”

    When the army asked for new armoured cars to send out to the troops in Afghanistan, Gordon told them they could only afford a 1935 Alvis…

    Anonymous says:

    It is reported that just prior to his death, Elvis had a thirty pound submarine sandwich in his mouth, upper, middle and lower intestine and it was heading for the floor of the Crapper. On exit, it was brown. Now Brown has pledged to keep our submarines but is plagued by Elvis who bet Alistair Campbell thirty pounds that he could put Brown in the Crapper.

    east of Munich says:

    The knives are out, Blairites are preparing for the post-election period and whatever it´s outcome they want rid of Brown, so for this ridiculous “performance” they can put the blame on him. They both were and are drugged up to and above their eyeballs.
    P.S. are there any UK Bands or individual Singers who would put their career on the line for Nu-Labour?

    Elvis was singing ‘Rocking Horse Cock’ and GB thought it was ‘Jail House Rock’.

    Abuse of Power says:

    Have often thought what Brown will do after he is consigned to oblivion. Reckon he will go mad when he realises how he is hated, although Blair seems to thrive on it. The difference however is that Blair is now one of the socialist jet-set and can bugger off to other countries at a whim, Brown is not in that club.
    So I think that once Brown goes totally loopy and becomes a bit of an embarrassment he will end up like Dr David Kelly.
    On the other hand he may just take his own life.

    1970s type policies

    1970s type economic recession
    1970s type energy crisis
    1970s type political scandals
    1970s type stagflation
    1970s type feminism

    All the result of a 1970s type Nu Labour

    Therefore they need a 1970s type musician.

    It looks like some Brownites are trying to kill David Milibands chances of taking over as leader stone dead. They are busy dropping hints to certain journalists that Miliband was at the brainstorming meeting that suggested the Pope should bless a gay wedding and open an abortion clinic and even that Miliband himself made some of the offensive suggestions.

    Labour’s internal war has started even before the election result is known.

    Simple. Gordon didn’t like the way the campaign was going. He was losing.
    So he decided to take over the operation himself.
    He booked a support guest but with his dodgy eyesight his Equality Integrator Adviser turned out to be an Elvis Impersonator Extraordinaire.

    Adios El Gordo says:

    they are two of the most famous banana fans and are being supported by a banana cartel:

    A news report suggests that, based on renditions of sandwiches named after him, Presley ate his peanut butter, banana, and bacon sandwiches with caramelized bananas and crispy bacon on grilled Hawaiian bread.[3] The Good, the Bad, and the Yummy states that “Elvis might have been horribly misguided about drugs and sequins, but he got one thing right—peanut butter and banana sandwiches”.[11] It suggests using half a banana and a piece of bacon per sandwich, browning the sandwiches in a frying pan with butter, cutting the sandwiches into wedges, and piling them high.[11]

    The Sleeper says:

    It was all down to Obama.

    Brown Believer says:

    Okay, we’d enjoyed all the hilarity.

    But I’m glad Labour have started to show us the real Gordon Brown. While Mr Cameron and Mr Clegg come across as normal guys, Brown has been placed in a straitjacket of ‘gravitas’ by his advisers. No wonder he trailed in the debates given this handicap!

    Now that Gordon is free to be himself we’ll start to see a shift in perceptions. Those who know him in private – such as his staff – praise his amazing ability to build and bond a team, great sense of humour and considerable charm.

    It’s time the British public saw the real man rather than the stiff ‘PR correct’ version foisted upon us by these out of touch backroom boys.

    Here’s my thoery, Guido.

    Gordon is under some new and experimental drug treatment. It is working well, but they are worried that, if pushed, he could snap and lose it live during one of the debates.

    His doctors said: “Best not to push it. Be careful. Try to accommodate his whims if you can.”

    So, one morning, Gordon wakes up and said: “I had a dream about meeting Elvis last night. I wish I could meet him in real life.” And so, the act was booked, and a simple act of kindness was turned into a major PR humilitation, sure to be talked about with scorn for decades to come.

    Brown, being a closet homosexual, has always been an admirer of Elvis who he believes has been able to hide away and enjoy his lifestyle without being identified or seen. Brown, having accomplished being PM, now wishes he could “pull an Elvis” and run away with a little Brazilian.
    All the while Mandy is secretly upset that Gordon never took him on is trips to the Cape as the east coasts gay hub has the dream home that Mandy desires so much for his retirement. Mandy still harbours ill will towards Gordon, but still loves the idea of Labour and socialism just a little too much to strike out at Gordon, but leaks the little things, just for fun.

    ‘I tell you what, I tell you what, I bet you I can get an Elvis impersonator on stage with Gordon’

    ‘Naaah. No fucking way. How much are you prepared to bet? No fucking way?’

    ‘No, seriously, 100 quid says I can get Gordon and an Elvis impersonator on the same stage’

    Why Elvis?

    The answer is:

    The cabinet (of cowards) have decided the only way to convince Gordon that it is time to go, is to make Gordon think he is going mad.

    After the election rally, everyone around Gordon pretended Gordon must have been “seeing things” – as Elvis is long dead.

    Since Brown is actually mad, this strategy of removing Brown is not proving as hopeful as first thought.

    When wee Duggie reported on some key demographics, Gordon realised that they were losing the youth vote and so went to align himself with ‘pop’ music, the sort of thing that the young people seem to like so much nowadays.

    Still smarting from the pillory received on his admission that he liked the Arctic Monkeys, (but didn’t have clue who they were), Gordon turned to Elvis as a sure fire bet. Elvis was popular last time Gordon listened to music radio in 1973 and dollops of reflected glory was therefore assured.

    Wee Dougie wanted the Proclaimers but they were already booked and anyhow Gordon was immovable on his choice.

    Campbell was out of his brain after a 28 hour session with a crate of Brasso and not in a fit state to see the trouble on the horizon.

    The rest is history.

    C M Carter says:

    In ’77 Brown based all this lectures on the Nixon/ Frost interviews, he would play both parts in his own one man show of little variety. One day in august Elvis up and died and that was all the newspapers would talk about that week. Brown didn’t know what to do. Perhaps he could recite the famous resignation speech from ’74? But no, someone reminded him that that was what he always did. So no more resignation speeches for Brown.
    His next lecture was mere moments away when he was confronted by a ghostly image from his future… and lo’ the spectre of redundancy did speak… unfortunately no-one else was around to hear what was said but one separate account of that lecture confirms that Brown was ‘upping the tempo’ and ‘getting down with the kids’.
    One person i attendance says he gave rendition of the Elvis song “Fool” the other person said that he sang “Fool, fool, fool”. One of the students was said to have copied the others notes, but neither were really listening.
    In Brown’s eye the lecture was a success, and ever since, when the chips have been well and truly down, the spirit of Elvis must be evoked and songs must be sung.

The rest is history.

    Labour are lagging in the polls – have a near universal bad press (exceptions: BBC & the Mirror). Maybe someone suggested Brown ‘connected’ with the electorate, by associating himself with a golden memory from their pasts. I believe that crooning politicians are quite popular in some countries.

    However, unlike Major’s last roll of the die, this one appears not to have worked so far.

    It’s all very well talking about the demise of Labour in this forthcoming election. They indeed are in dire straits. But if the Lib vote holds, and they insist that the current unfair system is replaced with a much fairer proportional representation, then the Conservative Party will be killed for good. Never again will a party whose support is derived almost completely from the south dominate British politics again. Perhaps something similar will happen to Labour. But the reason that the Tories will fight like hell to avoid proportional representation is that under such a system they simply could not win.

    Likewise, their cheerleaders in the press, you know, their old schoolmates, in fact, will also consequently print any old scaremongering crap about coalitions threatening stability and so on. Few believe these lying charlatans any more. Perhaps something that is good for the to happen? The end of Labour and Tory will mean that democracy in Britain can begin.

    It’s very simple. Mandy is throwing the election!

    Under a obscure clause of the Labour constitution the Cabinet will replace Brown with an interim leader. This can be either Mandy (as 1st Secretary) or Harman (as Deputy). As everyone loathes the latter, the former will become the interim PM.

    He may manage to do a deal with the Lib Dems, but probably not. However, he’ll have achieved his goal of becoming PM, boosting both his pension and his pay for after-dinner speaking. If nothing else it’ll make a wonderful story for him and his ‘chums’ – “Oh, didn’t you hear? I was PM for three weeks back in 2010!”.

The Nats would be represented more strongly than at present, and the three main parties would have about 25% each (give or take a bit) of the available seats.

    Who forms a government? Weeks or months of horse-trading. Meanwhile, the debt keeps on piling up, immigrants keep on swamping the country, the EU takes all the decisions that matter (like whether or not to call in the IMF), decisions on all manner of things like electricity supply security are on hold….

    Option 1: It was a brainstorming session that ran out of time. According to the manuals, when you brainstorm all ideas should be written down and only analysed afterwards and if the brainstorm is flagging a “seeding word” should be called out by the facilitator to get progress going again, some monkey called out Elvis and the brain storm went off on a word association / anagram tangent.

    Something like this:

    Our LIVES have been saved by Gordon’s Saving the World

    Gordon’s chances of electoral victory LIVES on.

    LEVIS are a popular type of jeans, and Gordon is a popular PM.

    Beware of the EVILS the Tory’s will invlict upon the nation.

    All of these are an anagram of ELVIS.

    The stress and desperation of the Labour Campaign meant that they thought if they could get Elvis into the news the public would make the same association that they did and all vote Labour.

    OPTION 2: There was a cock up at the Celebrity Doubles agency they used. They said they wanted a Jeremy Clarson look a like but the person on the other end of the phone wrote “fat bloke with curly hair and bad dress sense”

    You’ve been brainwashed into believing this for which there is no evidence. The current system is patently undemocratic and designed to ensure that one party or another maintains power when it has no mandate whatsoever.

    There is no evidence for any of the claims you put forward. In fact, all are mere speculation. One of the most difficult things in Britain is getting people to conceive that the shit they have been told for years is simply lies. Rather than have a partisan group of idiots, many of whom were unelected, running what purports to be a democracy, PR is the only way.

    Your argument appears to be that the current system allows for speedy action. You only have to look at events in Britain over the last year to see how ridiculous a claim that is.

    The end for Labour and Tory is nigh. Good riddance.

    Geordie Scoot says:

    On 3 March 1960 Elvis disembarked from his plane at Prestwick Airport in a brief stopover on his way to do his national service in the US Army in West Germany. It was to prove his only visit to the UK. Elvis mixed with the throng in the terminal and held a brief press conference in the NCO’s mess. Amongst the crowds caught up in the events, a young Gordo McBroon could scarcely believe the scene presented before him – the crowds, the adulation, the young louche man at the centre of it. The Reverand McBroon remonstrated with his son “See yon the works of Satan. He seeks to trap wer wi his wee gaudy promises, but it all leads to ruin, I tell ye”. But Gordo was smitten – fame, adulation, power over people’s lives – how could he, a moral middle class boy from Kirkaldy ever aspire to that? The years passed and young Gordo grew up to discover he had absolutely no talent, but the yearning for adulation and power did not desert him. He soon found the perfect outlet for his craving – the Labour Party. Where else could someone with no ability rise to the very top? But, oh the frustration, for just at the moment of fulfilment, he was usurped by someone with charisma. He bided his time and plotted and chose his moment to ascend to the highest office in the land. But wo! adulation there was none, infamy but no fame, and all around him plotted to deprive him of power. His last chance of happiness came – I will throw myself at the mercy of the people and they at last will recognise me for my true self! Alas, recognition did not bring popularity but repugnance. Gordo needed to refresh his inspiration, but his boyhood hero was no more. Wee Dougie, his faithful poodle recognised the need to motivate his leader just as his will began to crumble. He hired the Elvis act and sprang it on Gordo and the assembled Party faithfull. But oh, what disappointment, for here was no young fresh faced superstar, but a middle aged bloke in a wig and spangled jumpsuit, surrounded not by loving fans but incontinent old grannies and the semi-demented. The words of his father rang loud in his ears; Gordo made his excuses and left the building.

    Hello Alistair? Its Peter. look…I want you to arrange for a Man in a white coat to come and see Gordon. “He’s gone a bit Tutti Frutti. The ‘Poor boy’ has his ‘Hound Dog’ expression and looks ‘All Shook Up. ‘ It might be an idea to hear a ‘Llittle less conversation’ from him and maybe it would be beneficial if he had a rest. I think its better if we do this campaign ‘My Way’. Pick him up from the ‘Welcome Break Hotel’.

    Fred says:

    Great. Under FPTP we get a choice between a party that likes lots of immigration (Labour), a party that likes even more immigration (LibDems) and a party that likes slightly less immigration (Tories). These are there stated positions and we must vote for one of the top two to avoid a hung Parliament.

    The stated position of the British public is that they want hardly any immigration, but you can’t vote for such a party and expect it to win, or indeed have any influence at all.

    PR would resolve this. Without PR we are on a path set by the political elite with only minor deviations from the route we are now on. They are all playing the same game, chasing the votes of the 5% whose mind can be changed in an election. Nobody else matters. If you made up your mind 6months ago who you were voting for, nobody actually cares what your opinion is – that is FPTP.

    Now he’s gone the next step and started proclaiming he can raise the dead. And look everybody, here’s the proof. I’ve resurrected Elvis: Vote Labour.

    The “Elvis” was actually a Series 800 Terminator sent back in time to to prevent Brown’s untimely demise in an encounter with a rabid chipmunk.
    Gordon was, indeed, saved. He survived to persuade his erstwhile disciple, Code Name “Omaha”, to divulge the launch-codes of the toy rockets which Gordon had been given to play with (to keep him from mithering the grown-ups).
    Naturally, Gordon, in the solitude of his cupboard on Judgement Day, 6 May 2010, then pressed the big red button labelled “DO NOT PRESS THIS, FOR ****’S SAKE!”.
    He thus achieved his life-long ambition of separating his beloved Scotland from the remaining English mainland (formerly known as the Isle of Wight), avenging Longshanks’ atrocities and annihilating the decadent sassenachs.

    Well the world turns
    and a hungry little boy with a runny nose
    plays in the street as the cold wind blows
    In the ghetto

    And his hunger burns
    so he starts to roam the streets at night
    and he learns how to spin
    and he learns abou spite
    In the Glasgow

    Then one night in desperation
    a young man breaks away
    He buys a suit, steals a seat,
    tries to run, but he keeps getting beat
    And his mama cries

    As a crowd gathers ’round an angry old man
    Dragged out of Downing St. with a needle in his arm
    Back to Glasgow

    As the old man dies,
    on a cold and gray Caledonian mornin’,
    another little Milliband is born
    In the ghetto …

    As most of you will know, Gordon is really an alien inside a skin suit (which of course explains a great deal including the strange snot-eating habit, the weird mandibular motions and the rather unpleasant odour that follows him/it about, not to mention the strange fascination with rocking horses). Aliens of course have a very strange sense of humour and it may be presumed that they might deem it funny to jokingly remind us of their most famous abductee. Accordingly, my theory is that Gordon of Centauri has been having a big laugh (sounding strangely like a stomach rumble) at our expense (which is of course not exactly a new phenomenon!).

    It is to the eternal shame of the rightward political tendency that it allows continued life to the left-promoted myth that Nazis are ‘right-wing’. They ain’t and never were.

    They were simply an extreme manifestation of the left’s notion that the State knows best. That should be a terrible warning to anyone given to Fabian leanings.

    Ruth Kelly's plaything says:

    Struggling (and it’s not easy) to set aside my loathing of the Great Incompetent, I’ve been thinking about what it must be like to be G Brown these days. The sight of him on TV started me off – he looks really ill.

    What he’s been through since becoming PM:-

    – bottling an election, which would have won him another five years (probably), and daily rueing the fact;
    – constant undermining from colleagues;
    – support from only the greasiest brown-nosers;
    – financial ruin of the party likely, as he knows he has to side with BA against Unite;
    – steady decline in his personal ratings;
    – indifference of the public to his greatest ‘achievement’ (saving the world economy (sic));
    – the sight of Bliar making money hand over fist and welcome everywhere;
    – recognising that his past rule and current performance are certain to lose the election;
    – haunted by the fact that everything he tries fails, both long-term (the economy) and short-term (debates);
    – following in Callaghan’s steps as a failed, unelected Labour Premier;
    – gradually being sussed by the public as someone who conned them.

    I’m sure there’s more, but just that list would damage most people terribly. If you’d started out as PM believing that your day had at last come, it would be devastating.

    I don’t think we need look for pharmaceutical explanations, though they may play a part. I believe the man is close to being utterly broken and quite possibly seriously considering suicide.

    It is not to my credit that this invokes in me no sense of compassion. The damage he has done goes too deep for that. I just want him out ASAP, with the rest of his vile gang.

    My other car's a Merkava says:

    This is complicated, so go and make a cup of coffee.

    Gordon, or rather Mandy, is trying to get everyone to wonder what is the conspiracy theory behind the Elvis appearance. He will futher roll out the strategy in the coming days when Gordon appears on stage with Andy Kaufman, Lee Harvey Oswald, and the Duke of Edinburgh, who will explain how he personally ordered the assassination of Princess Diana.

    All of this is a distraction from the real conspiracy: Labour *wants* to lose the election. The economy is so completely fucked up that, naturally, neither of the grown-up parties wants to go near it. (Why do you think Dave agreed to the debates and then proceeded to make a complete arse of it?) The poor, retarded simpletons of the LibDems were only too pleased to be the unwitting fall guys.

    Scaring cancer patients was a new low even by Labour’s standards. Cue one Elvis impersonator, Mr Campbell’s’ own master-stroke.

    The abhorrent practice of scaring cancer sufferers was driven off the front pages. We temporarily forgot about it, such was the trauma or incredulity incurred. I would argue that nothing causes trauma, or indeed clinical amnesia, like an Elvis impersonator does.


    Therefore, I put it to you, my dear stalkers, that Mr Campbell ‘got the job done’ very nicely indeed. We are no longer speaking of such wicked behaviour towards some of the most vulnerable in our society by their Government.

    Are we.

    Forget it Gordoom the electorate have got your measure long ago,you are toast at the next election and you know it.
    Clegg and his aspirations are also toast in that the the electorate also know a political opportunist when they see one,the Lib Dims have been a political fleabite on British politics for many decades and now based on a couple of rigged tv debates Saint Nicholas is being promoted as the power broker of British politics,you are having a laugh.
    Liebour as they stand are out.
    Will Cleggyweggy support Liebour probably.
    Will Cameron join with the Lib Dims probably not.

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.”
