      Gillian Duffy says:

      I don’t know either and where are all these fawning MPs flocking in from Gordon?

    • 84
      Eddie says:

      He makes regular appearances in the chamber – whenever he has a personal interest that he wants to talk about… Murdoch and the Browns son… Mandela and the Browns son.

      The Right Honourable member for the Office of Gordon and Sarah Brown – the smallest constituency in the country.

      The Critic says:

      Think of it as advertising -helps him get signed up for more lectures in the US. WTF is he telling them?

      Oh God, I have looked it up – he’s been talking about good government amongst other things….should I laugh oor cry?

      As I have said before, the price of shite at Westminster is going up at a rate of knots. His brand seems to have an addiitonal premium on it.

    Steve Miliband says:

    Still the worst PM ever.

          Ah, diddums – have all the facts got in the way again?

            Lefties love eugenics

            The right, on the other hand, have a completely stainless record.

            Ah, diddums – have all the facts got in the way again?

            What a smart guy!

          • Lefties love eugenics says:

            And Gordon’s so clever? I’ll take all of this cash and burn it – gee, thanks Gordon, you psychotic freak!

          • Anonymous says:

            This is Britain, not Serth Effrika – apartheid is not relevant here.

            This is Britain, not the USA – Bush is not relevant here.

          Dubbya at least WON an election or two … and was actually liked by quite a few of the electorate. Both more than gordy managed.

          ““the most significant statesman” of the last 100 years”

          Really? Seriously? Let me throw some names at you.






          Now I feel like I’m forgetting someone, its on the tip of my tongue. Oh I know….


          But of course, he only led this country and the entire Western World to victory against the worst bunch of racists in history and stopped them wiping out an entire religion but we can sweep all that under the carpet because we’re all buddies in the EU now and they make such wonderful cars so we don’t like to mention it.

          The BBC. Promoting the bits of history that we’ve decided are good for you.

          • Don't let the truth get in the way of the BBC says:

            You could add Uncle Joe and dear old Adolph to that list too.

            A pair of Evil bastardos but significant statesmen.

          • Non taxable pikey says:

            You forgot, as so many do that he had a hand in sorting out Tojo as well. Unfortunately he missed out on emasculating Hirohito.

      Well it looks like it is Tescos.

      If this is not another yet another bung to big corporate interests, then I’m not Jaded.

    Good job I bought this Tom Tom. I wouldn’t have been able to find my way back to Westminster without it. Now when does my freebie to J’burg start.

    "Rug" Rat says:

    Gordon 18, Mandela 13– but if not for a knock-on by Mandela after the eighty-minute mark, they would have scored and with a conversion, pulled it out.

    Blowing Whistles says:

    And Brown (and Blair before him) – are the representatives of the Establishment. What does that say for the fucked up establishment attempting to ride out another storm?

    Time for some truth trials about Blair and the dead man in the woods.

    They cannot fool the public any longer.

      You sad tin-foil hat merchant! They can ‘control the public’ as long as they like. Or do you have evidence to the contrary. And who gives a fuck anyway?

    Whatever I said, whatever I did I didn’t mean it
    I just want you back for good

    Little bit of bad form Guido. I am no fan of Gordon Brown’s, but his contribution today was excellent. I admit it would be better if he made a few more of them, but credit where it is due and all that.

    Gooey Blob says:

    You have to wonder what on Earth Labour were thinking when they went into an election campaign with this man as their leader. Apparently, they haven’t learned any lessons from the experience.

    ‘E’s not pinin’! ‘E’s passed on!
    This MP is no more! He has ceased to be! ‘E’s expired and gone to meet ‘is maker!

    ‘E’s a stiff! Bereft of life, ‘e rests in peace!

    If you hadn’t nailed ‘im to the perch ‘e’d be pushing up the daisies! ‘Is metabolic processes are now ‘istory! ‘E’s off the twig! ‘E’s kicked the bucket, ‘e’s shuffled off ‘is mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin’ choir invisible!! THIS IS AN EX-MP!!

    So in other words, Gordo’s speech went (a la The Specials):

    #Meeee, meeee, Nelson Mandela?

    a non says:

    “Friends , Romans and countrymen. Lend me your ears. I come to bury Caesar not to praise him. The evil that men do lives after them; The good is oft interréd with their bones”
    Awaiting one honest [ but reverse quoting] Shakespearean politician standing up in the HoC today and telling it actually like it is /was.
    Mandela was a terrorist guerilla /freedom fighter with blood on his hands, confronting a S.A. regime with blood up to their elbows. His saving grace was a combination of repenting his earlier actions and convincing others not to push for the classical well recognised ‘eye for an eye’ mentality that could have occurred in asking the ultimate penalty of their opposers in reuniting a country.
    Now let down by the latest inaction of the ANC and past and present family members that tarnish his memory, while accepting he might deserve many of the plaudits being given for his part in a process, the stench of hypocrisy and sugar sweet rhetoric from self grandising MPs attempting to nail their flag to his wagon is sickening.

    At least client-state-with-huge-deficits-and-debt Brown seems to take the full English breakfast on his business, excuse me, political trips.

    Gordon Insane Brown says:

    Of course I guided Nelson throughout, it’s thanks to me that there is now great peace in South Africa, if not the whole world. I ended all wars and famine.

      Don’t forget boom and bust. He ended that as well.

    The last Quango in Paris says:

    that’s him presumably raising his two fingers to his constituents and the tax payers of the Country?

    He is such a shallow, nasty, selfish, self-important and unapologetic man he makes me sick.

    No one is interested in is opinions and the fact that he is welcomed to the Hof C to grandstand on occasions like these makes me sick.

    Why doesn’t he stick to stalking Obama and offending pensioners which are the only two things he appears to show any talent in (albeit small).

    John Bellingham says:

    Now, live from our special correspondent in 12th Avenue, Houghton—Nelson Mandela is STILL DEAD!
    Now over to Tony Blair in Bolivia (no, don’t ask).
    Mr Blair, you have stated that you first met Mr Mandela when he visited London in 1962–how else do you intend to re-write history?

    *As I type this some Labour twat from Islington has stated in Parliament that “his friend” Mandela “took South Africa out of the nuclear equation”?????
    SA’s nukes were dismantled in 1989, Mandela became President in 1994.

      Blowing Whistles says:

      Surely you mean the SA Nukes controlled by the Israelis and their friends in return for mucho of the gold and diamonds?

        Well since the communist ANC was funded and armed by the Russians in the hopes of getting their big bear paws on those same diamonds and gold … what’s yer point there comrade?

    Gordon Brown is one endless bloody “selfie”.

  37. 86
    John says:

    So what’s that now? Four times seen in Parliament since the 2010 election?
    He should be on the endangered species list.

  38. 93
    Alan Robins says:

    Well Gordon did save the world and end boom and bust!

  39. 94
    Judicial watch says:

    What Gordie did know, before the great unwashed did, was Tony a total self-serving shallow wank. He was determined to take his place. Sadly, he was worse.

  40. 96
    Owen's Remedial Maths & English teachers says:

    If y’gunna count my and me, you should count his and him too.

    Not saying Brown isn’t a pompous prat and ponce, but Geedo, yet again, show he can’t do maffs

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.”
