They all have delusions of global grandeur, don't they, these folk. And they never know when to leave the stage....

... Alex Salmond is another one who just won't go away. :(

If Gordon genuinely believes this he needs to be counselled* by two doctors and a social worker.

(For counselled read 'Sectioned'.)

They "leave" politics, then realise what a good life they enjoyed at the taxpayers expense, so they want back in.

That's another promise he's breaking.

He'll have to be quick... http://www.express.co.uk/news/politi...e-abuse-system

Just in case you wonder where our money really gets spent... one continueing con out of many.

They never go quietly. Anybody who believed that Salmond was going to take a back seat was deluding themselves. Now, Brown the expert in identifying 'bigoted women'. Roll on space travel.

I think I might move to Italy. The weather is better, the food is much better and there is less corruption in politics. :D

And they have so much more experience at forming governments. If you don't agree with the current one, just wait a couple of weeks! :D

And Italian governments consistently exceed expectations because nobody expects much of them. :D

But at least they have a good public transport system that people can afford.

I am just so glad the Queen did not bestow a Knighthood on either Blair or Brown that would have been an absolute Travesty !

Blair has re-invented himself and now Brown, again follows in Blairs footsteps, NOT ONE original thought in Browns head !

Thomas Eddison expected to have 10,000 inventions which failed before he found one which worked. It may take rather more with Blair.

Brown, in a budget speech, used the term "one pence". Enough said!

One thing I will say in Brown's favour... he is consistent.

Wrote cheques when a student at uni which bounced and, to all intents and purposes carried on the tradition when Chancer of the Exchequer. Maybe he is hoping to get three in a row?

As someone has already remarked - Pride comes before a fall. In Brown's case, it comes after a fall.

As a Scot, it pains me to say this but, both Blair and Brown are a right pair of prats. The other thing they both have in common is that they got out of politics before they got thrown out and what is really painful, is that both have ended up with a PM's pension for life.

Did Brown have any authority from the UK Government to make those rash promises to the Scots, he has been sciving from Parliament for such a long time I am surprised he knew any one to talk to there.
