Prime Mentalist’s Psychiatric Questions Go Mainstream

Is Bruce Anderson the first mainstream pundit to question Gordon’s psychiatric state? Here he is in the Indy this morning:
The stories are seeping out from No. 10. The other day, Gordon Brown was convinced that Dominic Grieve, the shadow Home Secretary, had made such a strong attack on 42-day detention as to impugn his commitment to national security. Although Downing Street advisers trawled and Googled, they could not find the quote. Their boss expressed gratitude for their efforts in the way that a sergeant-major would thank a recruit for a speck of dust on his rifle. Mr Brown then stationed himself at a terminal. For the next four hours, he sat there unavailingly, emanating gloom and rage. The non-psychiatric interpretation of his behaviour is termed “the playing politics with national security syndrome”.

Shortly afterwards, John Prescott was in No. 10, showing around some children. “What’s he doing in this building?” exploded Mr Brown. “Get him out of here.” (He surely cannot regard Mr Prescott as a potential leadership challenger – otherwise, things are truly desperate).

Embarrassed aides explained that, you know, Mr Prescott had been Deputy Prime Minister until last year, and what harm could there be in showing kids around? Gordon Brown’s response was to shut himself in the Cabinet Room for the next two hours, talking to no-one.

In emails and conversations people say that they think twat-watch and the Prime Mentalist tag are very amusing. Guido is deadly serious, we have a head of government who is not in touch with reality and dangerously malevolent. He has surrounded himself with second-rate yes men who don’t stand up to him and cowed the cabinet with his angry vindictiveness. That is why we have such dysfunctional government. Ministers and MPs were too scared to hold a contested election for leader, they are by and large too scared to openly tell him to go, so the curtain won’t come down on the disaster show…

Rich & Mark’s Monday Morning View

Prime Mentalist Forgets He’s On Holiday

Gordon is feeling our pain, feeling the pinch*, so he is holidaying at a £4,500-a-week hide-away. Bizarrely he has just given Sky News an interview with soft focus shots of him and the missus walking in the park in holiday mode (stiff light coloured jacket, paedo in a playground smile). He told Sky “I’m getting on with the job”- Eh? Wrong script, he is supposed to be on holiday…

*Guido is at a loss to understand how he is feeling our pain. He has never paid to fill up a car with petrol and charges even light bulbs and his Sky subscription to us on expenses.

Sleazy Speaker Sunday Special

Focus this Sunday Sleaze on the Piggy-in-Chief, the Speaker Michael Martin. This is the man supposedly in charge of reform, he is as unsuited to reforming and opening up parliament as can be. The Sunday Times has a fantastic investigation into his affairs by Stephen Robinson. It shows just how Michael Martin has enriched himself and his family at our expense. In many ways the Speaker symbolises all that is wrong with our parliamentarians, the arrogant sense of self entitlement, the dodgy payments to family and friends, the desperate desire to keep it all in the shadows and out of sight of the voters. You must read the article.

Mirror Does Dave a Favour, Yeah Right…

Guido isn’t the only one suspicious of the Mirror’s recovery of Dave’s nicked bike, plus their fortuitous video footage of him looking stunned when it was nicked. They have been following him around on his bike in the past, videoing him jumping red lights. They have also rooted around in his dustbins to find out if he used disposable nappies.

Wouldn’t be a great leap of the imagination for them to come up with the “nick his bike” wheeze – would it? This is the paper that put faked up photos of British soldiers abusing Iraqi prisoners on the front page…

Who’s Laughing Now Quentin?

Spare a moment once again for Quentin Davies, the man who last year had the sense of judgement to leave the Conservatives for the socialists, simultaneously accusing Dave of “unreliability and an apparent lack of any clear convictions”. Praising at the same time Gordon “a leader I have always greatly admired, who I believe is entirely straightforward, and who has a towering record, and a clear vision for the future of our country which I fully share.” You share his fate now Quentin…

Emily Keeps Straight Face

Guido and a few others were just watching BBC News when they repeated the Gordon speech from this morning – job to do, listening, blah, blah, high fuel prices, blah, global economic etc. After it finished Emily Maitlis deadpanned to camera “That was Gordon Brown, getting on with the job”. We all burst out laughing.
The state broadcaster keeps repeating the clip of Gordon shaking hands with a line of smiling supporters in Warwick (who are according to a Labour source all party staffers) instructed to get out there in front of the cameras. Very Ceauşescu…

And i’ve noticed that 100% of Guido Fawkes staff are men. Looks like Guido has a woman problem. Or is it an hypocrisy problem?
