Where’s Gordon?™ Obsessing about the World Cup Apparently

Once upon a time there was a man who claimed he woke up every day to “fight for a fairer Britain”. Britain may have said no, but he was returned overwhelmingly by one small part of it to represent and fight for them for the next five years. But this man is refusing to represent them and has now gone missing. Finally we learn he has abandoned his responsibilities and is sticking two fingers up at representative democracy to instead obsessively watch every single World Cup match on telly. While he rocks back and forward in his underwear, ticking off the games on his  free Daily Mirror World Cup pull-out wallchart, the taxpayer is picking up the tab.

Gordon was quick to head down to Parliament to sign on for his cheques, so that for an hour and a half of football he is set to make around £45+ per match, or just over £3000 for the sixty-four game tournament. Find Guido any sports fan who wouldn’t love to be paid to sit around watching football. Thousands would have gone to the World Cup if it wasn’t for the cost and yet the taxes that deprived them of the trip are paying for Gordon to watch. Where’s the “fairer Britain” there?

If Gordon Brown needs time to reflect, plot revenge, write his book, find himself, detox, or whatever it is he is doing all alone in Scotland – fine – he should not expect to be paid for the pleasure by the taxpayer. There are 93,272 constituents in Kirkcaldy who are completely disenfranchised from the political system while their elected representative broods in a darkened room. Brown needs to make a decision – walk into the sunset and break completely from the House of Commons, or engage in the job he was elected to carry out and is paid to do. Guido is one of those inclined to say Brown is bonkers, but while this situation is allowed to continue the taxpayer is being taken for a fool. It is time to blow the final whistle on Gordon’s sulky withdrawal from parliament. He should either resign or “get on with the job”…

*Fag-packet maths: 252 working days a year. 9 till 5 = 8 hours per day = 2016 hours per year. £64k divided hourly = £32 per hour = £48 per game. And that doesn’t include expenses.

    For goodness sake, it’s worth £64k just to keep the old misery out of the way. It would cost more to keep him in gaol or in a secure mental institution.

    Yes, but the longer he remains absent the more his reputation is being deservedly trashed and the saddder and weirder he appears. Maybe he should join the IRA MPs? Then no-one would expect him to appear…

    Is there no ruling that an MP MUST turn up for so many hours at HOC? Otherwise, it means he can sit picking his nose in a darkened room for the next 5 years while ripping off the taxpayer (even more than he did as PM). C’mon Guido, launch a campaign to oust him completely.

    £64k plus expenses which also fund a constituency office and staff plus the cost of a 24hour police/security detail ( which must cost a fortune).

    On top of that he’s drawing his PM severance pay and pensions.

    And on top of that, I presume, sarah and the boys, who are living in London with friends also get a 24hour police/security detail.

    He’s costing the taxpayer a fortune. And for no benefit.

    There should be a legal requiirement for mp’s to attend a minimum number of hours per week at the HoC. If they do not do that then they should be required to provide, to the speaker’s office, a Doctor’s note just like the rest of us.

    If they don’t do that then their pay and expenses should be docked accordingly and stopped altogether if they carry on this disgraceful behaviour, as he has done, for weeks on end with no proper excuse for absence!!!!

    Gordon Brown -the invisible man says:

    Why doesn’t Brown at least issue a statement stating that the “Coalition’s” assertions that his government racked up collosal debt and left the incoming government an horrendous legacy are not correct(we all know of course that they are)>His silence on the subject implies that he agrees and that he and Labour have b*a*n*k*r*u*p*t*e*d the country.For a man who is supposed to be jealous of his reputation this silence does not ring true and I am beginning to wonder if the rumours that he is incarcerated somewhere for his own and the country’sgood are true.

    As regards him taking his seat in Parliament we should remember that he has been proven to be a “small” petty man nursing imagined slights and grievances of such magnitude and is untouched by either greatness or humility and he seems to be unwilling or perhaps unable to do as John Major or Margaret Thatcher and sit on the back benches for a period of time or indeed do as Blair did and resign his seat to seek his fortunes elsewhere.

    The longer he remains silent the more what reputation he has/had is being eviscerated by Cameron & Co.Very strange..Very strange…..Has he like Edmond Dantès been incarcerated in the Chateau d’If or like The Man in the Iron Mask been silently rowed at the dead of night to the Bass Rock where he is under permanent guard…his gaolers instructed to let him see or speak to no-one ? Or will he surface Macavity-like at the Labour Party Conference in September to anoint his successor to the leadership or at the book launch of his latest scribblings ?

  26. 26

    That’s all very well for you but I’ve got to put with him sitting in his underpants and blowing his Pringles carton like a vuvuzela and shouting “come on Scotland” every time some Algerian defender no one’s ever heard of gets the ball.

    Can’t any of you lot create a fake emergency that only Gordon can deal with? Just so I can get to clear his Special Brew ‘Jenga’ and ‘leaning tower of Pizza boxes’ away.

    LukeS says:

    The majority of an MPs work should involve surgeries and dealing with issues that take place within their constituency. This takes place outside the chamber, hence why it is difficult to gauge how much effort an MP is putting in and why a minimum number of hours would never be implemented.

    It is also worth remembering that if your local MP is the Chief Whip of their political party, it is not uncommon for them not to say anything on the floor of the house for the duration of their term in that position, which could last years…which is why we didn’t have to listen to Geoff Hoon or Nick Brown for a significant part of the last 5.

    I’d rather my MP be talking to me, or other needy constituents in his office rather than sitting on his arse in the Commons for 10 hours, making occasional interventions to lambast the opposition.
    Alas, it seems Gordon Brown isn’t carrying out constituency meetings, but keep an eye out if he starts.

    With him living up there,a virtual recluse, in scotland and sarah and the boys living in london, the brown’s whole situation is peculiar to say the least!!

    That’s not quite right as the last round of matches in the group stages are held in pairs. Thus Gordon Brown could only watch 32 + 8 (not 16) + 8 + 4 + 2 + 1(3rd/4th play off) + 1 = 56 matches. So at £48 per game he’s ‘earning’ only £2,668 not £3,072. He is still a c**t though.

    There have actually been hints that Brown may indeed be unwell…initially just after he resigned certainly Darling and Campbell were asked separately by both BBC and Sky and both gave enigmatic and sphinx-like answers Campbell said something along the lines of”Losing an election is traumatc and Gordon has good days and bad days..” Darling likewise said something similar when asked.Since then the MSM and broadcasting media have backed off from asking the question even when his reputation and that of his government for financial prudence and rectitude are being effecitively destroyed to give Cameron cover for his cuts and the Coalition are daily quoting the “horrendous legacy” they inherited from him nobody has actually mentioned him or sought an interview/statement to allow him to defend his reputation which is odd in itself. As an ex-PM he is surely allowed that privilege ? It’s as if he never existed and that he is the man who must never be mentioned again by senior figures in the Labour Party and it’s supporters in the media

    Part of the problem is that the BBC are loathe to mention it–might upset their careers or prospects–and so it becomes the great unmentionable. The BBC ‘s bias was even evident on Radio 3 (!) this morning; on the early moring news round up the reader stated that an enquiry NO DETAILS GIVEN AT ALL has found that Swedish education initiatives, which influenced M.Gove’s policies , have had little effect on Swedish educational standards. That was it; No names provided , no details of the study, just an assertion that the Tories were wrong, wrong ,wrong.

    Ronnie says:

    Mr McBride used the system of anonymous briefings under which political journalism operates to spread dirt about Labour opponents of Mr Brown. Should journalists still be under a duty to protect their sources when those sources are abusing public money, or should we have been bolder in exposing it? Mr McBride did not poison the well on his own. There has long been a “dirty tricks” cabal around Mr Brown that any Westminster journalist or minister could name – Ian Austin, Tom Watson, Ed Balls, Mr McBride and, formerly, Charlie Whelan, who is now political officer of the Unite super-union (and working hard to place favoured candidates in winnable seats for the next election).

    The poisoning was at its worst in the run-up to the leadership noncontest two years ago. Yesterday I spoke to somebody who balked at challenging Mr Brown then, because he couldn’t face the poisoners. “It’s the reason why Gordon came to office untested,” he said. “When I considered challenging him for the leadership, people warned me it would be a very unpleasant campaign; and it would have been an unpleasant campaign because Gordon’s people would have run it in an extremely vicious way.”

    As he spoke, I remembered being told at the time by a number of journalists that one potential candidate was having a mental breakdown, and there was some embarrassing story involving him and a woman doing the rounds. The tales seemed obviously to have been invented by Mr Brown’s muck-spinners. In place of ideas, smears: that contest should have been conducted by open debate, not whispered poison. But Mr Brown was afraid of the debate.

    My colleague, David Hughes, has written about the strange absence of any mention of British forces in an extract from the Rolling Stone profile of General Stanley McChrystal. The war, under the General’s command, is said to have become the “exclusive” property of the US.

    General Stan is about to meet Barack Obama. As I write, no one knows whether he will keep his job or not. What is certain, I believe, is that the British are indeed marginalised in Afghanistan and have been so for some time. I was in Kabul late last year, listening to the inauguration speech of President Hamid Karzai, re-elected after a dodgy election in which America almost lost all patience with him.

    He paid effusive tribute to the US and its troops. Of the British there was not a word of mention.

    The only slack I will offer him is the rope drop when he is hanged. If it is good enough for ‘Sadam’ as his mate Tony called him, it’s good enough for Gordon.

    That crappy meal at Granita will show itself to be the most costly meal Gordon ever eat.

    Before his punishment the last meal he is offered should be taken from their menu.

    Bollocks to that. I want to know why the BBC are obsessed with race. Just watched their news coverage of people in England watching the game and in a sea of white faces they seemed to deliberately seek the only shots in which they could show an ethnic juxtaposed with a whitey. Their sickening attempts to wallow in diversity are simply perverse.

    I think he must be in hospital or “under the doctor” for something not physical. If it were for a physical ailment, we would have been told; there would have been a media release, that Gordon was having a skin tag removed or a hernia seen to and would be expected to resume Getting On With The Job in x days/weeks time.

    He’s leaving his deputy and other Labour colleagues to twist in the wind. No Mandelson to lead them, no Al Campbell to whip in the media for them, no Gordon to comfort them.

    If you put in a clocking-out mechanism as well, it means only that they’ll have to pop back at 4.30 (beat the rush-hour, don’t you know?) to clock off.

    Instead, perhaps we could just put into office people who have some standards?

    It would be fascinating to see an analysis of the Lords’ attendance, showing those who signed-in and, of them. who actually attended a committee or the chamber. I can only wonder where the noble Baroness Uddin or Lord Mick of Gorbals would feature.

    Guido can’t understand the morality of instigating a regressive tax rise that will mean more, not less, state dependency, leaving those who already suffer the most being even more broke. A hike in VAT to 20% would cost someone on average earnings £150 a year, that may not be much to millionaires like Dave, George or Nick, but those on lower incomes will definitely feel the pain.

    The Coalition simply has no mandate to raise VAT, they were all asked repeatedly during the election campaign and replied they had “no intention” of raising VAT. Clegg actually campaigned against a VAT hike

    Brown is being kept up in the isolation of Scotland under watch of a handler to keep him from revealing anything about or saying anything about who and what really runs this country.

    Do you think a control freak like Brown would be happy about the coup d’état that was recently played on him by Darling, Mandy and Ali C because our masters wanted a new face to appease the public.

    The fact the blubbering oath who claims he is some great colossus intellect couldn’t see how he was being stitched up like a kipper by his own party so a younger Tory model could take the helm?

    The great irony is our masters sense of humour, this is twice that Gordon was nobbled out of the top job first Blair and now Cameron and the dick didn’t even see it coming what a first class terrrrrrwattttttt.

    Honestly if he gets serious about putting to much in this book that his handler is also surprise surprise ‘ghost writing’ & ‘editing’ for him then it will be arranged for him to have a ‘heart attack’ or accident.

    If a sad Scottish mong like Brown can’t sit back and shut up in his retirement and accept he was a mere pawn on the international chessboard, an investment that was bought and traded then the bosses upstairs will liquidate him out of the picture permantely.

    Please don’t post links to vile anti-semitic arseholes here.
    You might not think it from the vitriolic comments about politicians, but we Brits are pretty tolerant and don’t share your Cold-War raving hallucinations about everyone that isn’t a member of the KKK.

    Correct me if I’m wrong but isn’t it the LaDouche Foundation that accused the Queen of being an international coke dealer?

    time for Channel 4 D I S P A T C H E S to get on his case or the ubiqutous(sic) Jacque Paretti (sic) … if they can cobble together a program on a ‘im mad as hell and i aint gonna take IT anymore’ Cumbrian taxi driver with a Thai tart addiction then they can do us a nice ‘Is Gordon sulking because he dont get child benefit anymore?’

    Blue Lady says:

    If England had it’s own Parliament like the Scots, then these morons would never have been in power in the first place, not in England anyway. The Tories have a 62 seat majority in England and yet we still have a coalition Government which has had to either water down or scrap many of the things we voted for. Even though the Scottish Parliament decides on 70% of their own affairs, the Scottish vote still denies us English the Government we voted for. The Scots will never vote Tory. Like someone previously said – they would vote for a dog turd if it had a red rosette on. It’s surprising after 12 years of devolution, we English are not demanding the same rights as the other three countries in the UK. That way we would probably never see a Labour Government in England again. We should demand an English Parliament and the Scots can keep McMentallist and the rest of this nasty incompetent bunch.

    Blue Lady says:

    Er yes we do – as long as he’s costing us hundreds of thousands to keep him in his mansion with his Sky TV and Sarah in London also probably paid for by us – both costing more in Security than the PM. Wouldn’t surprise me if Brown is still insisting on outriders everywhere he goes, unlike Dave Cam.

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.”
