Brown’s Bushisms

Gordon Brown was quoted in the Telegraph saying that he spends “every day that I wake up” trying to keep the economy on track. Does he not wake every day? Are there days where things are just too bad to get out of bed?

Last week he made two great Bushisms in his speech to the Scottish TUC:

  • “I remember the 1940s.” Gordon Brown was born in in 1951.
  • “The Government has done more for poverty over the past fifteen years” Yes, beginning when John Major was in charge of the government.
  • He also told Sky’s Adam Boulton last week that Britain had been “diversifying into gold” by selling Britain’s gold reserves. And it was the Tories fault anyway.
  • “Nelson Mandela was freed in our lunchtime.” Well, Prezza’s lunchtime…
  • “Britain and China are both centres of invasion….”

Quote of the Day

Rowan Atkinson tells The Times

“All jokes about religion cause offence, so it’s pointless apologising for them. You should really only apologise for a bad joke. On that basis, no apology is required.”
