Gordon’s Back in Parliament, For Drinks

He may shun most of his backbench duties in favour of flying around the world for speeches and funnelling the fees through his shell company, the “Office of Gordon and Sarah Brown”, but the former Prime Mentalist has actually managed to turn up in Westminster today. Coincidently there is a state occasion rather than any pressing issue for the people of Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath…

Despite shirking his responsibility as an MP, Gordon is still happy to use taxpayer-funded rooms on the Parliamentary estate. He’s got at least two booked today. Guido hears Gordon is having a small gathering after the Queen’s speech. Form an orderly queue Labour types…

        I think you’ll find it’s spelt ‘Anglesey’. I blame Shirley Williams and Tony Crosland for screwing England’s schools, personally.

        Let’s hope they get Gordon to pilot it.

        “Yes, Gordon, you can fly around in space! No, you don’t need a space-suit, you’ll be fine. Yes, it is a bit cramped, but it will seem bigger when it’s weightless, honest. Yes, you can fly it back to Earth whenever you like. The controls? They’re there, Gordon, only stupid people can’t see them. What’s that? You can see them now? Good. Goodbye, Gordon.”

    I laugh at the people of Kirkcaldy who sit idle whilst this man pretends to represent them. They might as well hang a sign when you go into town saying “welcome to to the home of idiots, please drive safely”.

        The problem with Scotland is that anyone sane with a 3-digit IQ emigrated some time ago. Three of my grandparents did and never regretted it. Their descendants are thick on the ground here in Canada. Rather depleted the gene pool in the Old Country, I fear, though.

      Nice to see you again Gordo. Your immigration policies have made me and my ‘boys’ in Portsmouth fabulously rich. It is a pity these Tory twats are trying to cut back on it. We will still take as many asylum seekers as the Home Office will send us, so long as they keep paying us the money. Jahbulon.

    Oh, well, you can’t swan off to Switzerland or New York every week (or wherever else they’ll have me and pay me well just for showing up); occasionally one finds oneself in London, and you think to yourself, why the hell not, and show up at the job you’re elected to do– you know, more for appeerances than anything else, but, you know, sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do, you know…but hey, it’s not like my constituents really give a shit, I mean, they voted for me, what does that say about them, you wonder?
