Just recently Brown praised Jenson Button’s barnstorming F1 championship victory, calling him a “brilliant ambassador for sport.” Not enough to see off a challenge from Ryan Giggs for Sports Personality of the Year though. Praised and damned by Gordon.
Switching over the channels over the weekend Gordon Brown revealed that he and his family were backing Stacey Solomon to win The X-Factor. Surprise surprise, Stacey Solomon, the Essex gal who has a budding career in any Mike Leigh film, was the first to go crash out of the weekend’s finals. Praised and damned by Gordon.
As regular readers will remember there was some speculation that Gordon had cursed David Beckham’s Football Academy. As many co-conspirators have pointed out, the news has come through that it is officially to shut. Visited and damned by Gordon.
Gordon is bunking off PMQs this week to go to Copenhagen. He was the first proper world leader to say he was coming. Surprise, surprise it’s not going too well. Developing nations walked out yesterday writing the whole thing off as a stitch up. Damned by association.
