Gordon Brown as Dr Evil

Yesterday in his slightly bonkers and self serving speech in parliament Gordon Brown complained among other things that the Sun compared him to Dr Evil. Guido thinks it was completely legitimate to make that comparison. Gordon was trying to convince the British public that he had masterminded a plan to “save the world”, and in his deluded mind he possibly believed it. Never mind that Obama had his own plan, that the rest of the world’s large economies were going to do their own thing and that Sarkozy was claiming credit for his plan to save Europe. It was a bonkers obsession with Brown to fantasise about authorship of a global concerted recovery plan of his design. The rest of the world’s leaders just posed smiling for the G20 pictures and couldn’t wait to fly home. His messianic global plans are a big part of the reason why no one besides Bono wanted Gordon to head up the IMF.

The popular profitable press knows it has to entertain readers, Guido never forgets he is in the infotainment business. Is it really a big deal to be lampooned as like a movie baddie? Clearly Brown’s psychological flaws include taking himself far too seriously. Knowing he read this blog and it added to his torment gives Guido immense satisfaction…

A week or two after the G20 meeting Brown’s bunker friends Damian McBride and Charlie Whelan were exposed as being in on a plot to smear political opponents with what they knew to be lies. That was pretty evil…

I cannot support an indefinite backstop arrangement, where the EU holds a veto over our ability to exit…”
