    Lets hope ” they lean him” so hard he collapses under a multitude of his own contradictions and is never seen again.

    Beware flying Nokia’s in the Chamber on budget day!

    “leant on”. “Lent on” suggests someone’s taken a mortgage out on him, which is unlikely.

    It would be funny , If Gordon turned up , wanting ti give a speech and then had to wait till 10pm before he is called to spout his bullshit, in fron tof a empty chamber being cheered on by his two sons (Ed and Ed) , with only The Guardian and Labourlist printing any comment on what the tosser had to say.

      I suspect it would be far more embarrassing for Labour than that. The entire government benches would make sure they were in the chamber for Brown’s speech, and he’d barely be able to get a word out for heckling. Indeed, it would be a good idea to have The Guinness Book of Records on hand to record the longest, loudest and most intense heckle in world history. The heckles would rain down so thick and fast that not only would Brown be utterly humiliated, but Hansard would be unable to record them all, and the squeaker would totally lose control. The Labour whips would want to avoid that – even Aljabeeba would have to broadcast clips of a unique parliamentary event; a former Prime Minister being hounded from the chamber by the sheer volume of heckles.

        We should start a petition to make sure Brown is allowed to speak. I know it’s a form of bear baiting but fuck it, the entertainment value would be tremendous .

    Brown and Blair should have set up a British Sovereign Wealth Fund during their Tenure. They did not. Reason – it would have been a Socialist Measure. That in itself is enough to consign them both to the dustbin of History.

    If he starts to talk, then everyone must simply walk out of the chamber towards the toilets….

    I’m confused by this. Surely given the fact that Brown:-

    1. “saved the world”
    2. is ‘the greatest chancellor ever’ (c) Polly Tuscany et al.

    the PLP would be delighted to have the old bruser back to stick one over the Bullingdon Club oik.

      “It was good to see the passion, it was good to see that oomph, more of it please.”

      Nick Brown, chief whip:

      “I really did think it was brilliant. It was from the heart, it was what he wanted to say. The personal details were very moving. I’ve seen 25 of Gordon’s speeches at the Labour conference and I think that was the best speech yet.”

      Angela Eagle, Treasury:

      “It was a tour de force. He spoke over the heads of all people who were sniping and directly to the British people to set out what drives him, and I think many will warm to that. He effectively apologised for the 10p rate of tax, which I think a lot of people wanted to hear.”

        Uhmm. Yeah. Uh, that was all before we were allowed to admit that Brown was crap. And mad. Mad and crap. We didn’t tell you at the time that he was mad and crap because, erm, well we thought there was an off-chance of winning the election and, erm, keeping the crap madman in Number 10.

    “(Reuters) – Britain’s top-notch credit rating looks increasingly secure thanks to the government’s commitment to deficit reduction and a recovering banking sector, ratings agency Fitch said on Monday.”

    It would be fun to pass a motion to get rid of Bercow and then nominate Brown, then he would have to turn up in the HoC and adress the PM, deputy PM, Chancellor etc.

    Gordon has already written it, 40,000 words in green crayon.

    Technicians have lost the ability to cool down the chronic old over-reactor at the debt-ravaged Labour Party in northeastern Burnley, where previous eruptions have blown apart the economy in recent years.

    It was revealed Monday that the Fuk-u-UK No. 10 KirkCaldy plant could no longer control the temperature of the former chancellor. Industrial workers were pumping sea water into the atomic monocular in hopes of cooling him down and avoiding another potential electoral meltdown.

    “The fear is if he can’t be contained in Scotland he might slip down to parliament for the budget and he might blow up in our faces again. That would be very bad for the economy and for any remaining shred of credibility Labour posses.”

    The Nok-i-ay index continued to rise in anticipation.

    Hahahahaha

    Brown show up at the HoC and make a speech on Budget day ?

    He aint got the bottle.

    This is just Labour trying to draw attention to themselves and get the Conservatives excited

    The roars of laughter would be heard back in his constituency.

    I hate Blue Labour says:

    He won’t show.

    Stripped of his power, he’s now a joke. An impotent, worthless wretch.

    He wouldn’t dare show his face as there’s nothing to protect him from ridicule and laughter.

    Cream Puff says:

    It would be one of the rarest appearances yet!
    The good for sod all ,son of the manse has still to take part on Scottish Questions.
    Thats the bit before PMQ’s on the first Wednesday of the month, so not exactly taxing. Yet the SOB has never taken part, despite the fact that he is a Scottish MP representing a Scottish constituency. The guy like the rest of the Scottish Labour 40 are just snouts in trough leeches, who do nothing for Scotland

    Hang The Bastards says:

    FREE SPEECH !

    Let the Bong-Eyed-Mental-Deluded-Lying-Bastard-Son-of-a-Manse speak !

    We all need a good laugh !!

    MrAngry61 says:

    Gordon Brown presuming to speak in the Budget debate is akin to a punchbag trying to throw the first blow.

    Told you so.

    So, where was he?

    Stripped of power, his spineless cowardice is laid bare for all to see.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
