Spot the difference

Gordon Brown, September 2008:

"My family are people, not props”"


Story in today's Mail:

"Gordon Brown wept in public this weekend when he talked of the death of his daughter Jennifer and spoke of facing up to the possible premature death of his son Fraser ..

Mr Brown's wife Sarah, who was present, also sobbed in an extraordinary display of emotion when the Prime Minister was interviewed by Piers Morgan for a TV programme.

The candid exchanges, which took place over two-and-a-half hours in front of a live studio audience, are to be broadcast on Piers Morgan's Life Stories on ITV next Sunday."


Spotted it yet?

This is quite despicable. We can only hope that people see through this shameless attempt at wringing votes out through sympathy. This man is no better than vermin.

You're a disgrace. How fucking dare you say Gordon and Sarah are using the tragic death of their daughter to win sympathy votes. Did it never occur to you that maybe they are in emotional turmoil as a result of her death? Anyone normal person would be, you cold hearted pathetic excuse for a human being.

JuliaM said...

I think it's backfiring on them big time. I really, really hope so, anyway...

"How fucking dare you say Gordon and Sarah are using the tragic death of their daughter to win sympathy votes."

Because that's what they are doing...

Contrast the way Cameron (and god knows, I've no time for him in other respects) dealt with his own personal tragedy.

JuliaM said...

Oh, and I think it might well be true that Gordoom's in 'emotional turmoil'. In fact, I'm hoping for such!

I just don't think the death of the kid has anything to do with it...

Im sorry if I appear cold hearted but the man has no one else to blame if we appear suspicious of this x factor style television interview. He has spent his entire life calculating and posturing, it is now coming homne to roost.

@JuliaM

You are a sick individual if you think anybody would do such a think.

subrosa said...

All pre-planned with their pal Piers. Now, it would have been a totally different matter if he'd been speaking privately to a group of bereaved parents and someone told the press.

Of course his wife is as bad as him. She has a powerful part to play in such matters.

It appears Comical Ali also broke down earlier today on Andrew Marrs show. WTF is going on ?????

Dark Lochnagar said...

Is it too much to expect of your Prime Minister that he doesn't go on telivision and blurb about the death of his child. This is the man who is sending other peoples' children to Afghanistan, under equipped and in inadequate armoured trucks. Any grief should be between him and his wife, not shown on some shite show like it was an episode of fucking Eastenders. Anonymous, you are a twat. Fucking grow up!

microdave said...

@ anonymouse - If Gordon is "in emotional turmoil" he should not be (trying) to run the country. He's a liability, and should have stood aside ages ago. He's done far too much damage to the country to gain ANY sympathy from me. You are the one who should grow up...

John R said...

Funny how McNutter's come over all emotional just now isn't it? It's nothing at all to do with an election coming of course.

Is there absolutely NOTHING that this lying scumbag won't do in order to try to keep his snout in the trough?

JuliaM said...

"@JuliaM

And you're pretty bloody naive not to realise that a career politician would do anything to win...

Rightwinggit said...

Someone who would do such a thing is the sick individual.

Now fuck off.

What an utter cunt. How low can this bastard sink in his desperate attempt to get back into office.

As somebody said above. You don't see Shameron wheeling out his dead child to wring a few votes out. Pathetic arse.

Jill said...

Bad taste post, CF. There's plenty to criticise Brown for, so let's just leave dead children out of it, ok? Even if Piers Morgan doesn't. Even if Gordon Brown does interviews with Piers Morgan. There's no need for gutter-level blogging. Sorry.

JuliaM said...

Tell you what, Jill, we'll leave dead children out of it when the Cyclopean disaster leaves dead children out of it. Deal?

mungle said...

It's Brown who is getting into the gutter. Surely anyone would by now realise that he will do anything to stay in office? His ego will not allow him any other option.

Mattehw Hopkins said...

boo fucking hoo. Now, how many other parents have had to endure that and worse with the shambles of a fucking NHS he has created.

If it's so difficult then get the fuck out of office and give us a fucking election you lying, doped up, power grasping, economic disaster of a one eyed jock cunt.

"let's just leave dead children out of it"

If only Gordon, his ambitious PR-savvy wife and his desperate media advisers had...

"There's plenty to criticise Brown for, so let's just leave dead children out of it, ok?"

Err i think you'll find that Brown is the one bringing his 'dead children' into it.

Captain Haddock said...

Brown is a completely mendacious bastard who would stoop low enough to pass under a snake's belly, whilst wearing a top hat .. if it kept him in power for just one extra day ..

Anon @ 1149 & again @ 1157 .. is either "Dolly" Draper or someone working for the Liebore Rebuttal Unit .. and I claim my £5.00 ...

BTW .. ordinarily, I would agree that dead children are well & truly "Out of Bounds" .. but since McFuckwit chose (no-one forced him) to go on a live TV interview and discuss the subject .. He and he alone has made them "fair game" for further comment ..

It should not go without saying that Sarah Brown is up to her neck in scheming and fakery as well . Bottler Brown hides behind her. She loves the attention.
Twitter my arse, fake fake fake!!!

HeartAttackSurvivor said...

Oh shit CF, I wish you hadn't mentioned this.
NOT because you're not totally correct in your analysis.
But because this is EXACTLY one of the things they were hoping for. Now it'll be "Look at all those EEEVIL right-wing bloggers using poor Gordon's sincere grief as a stick with which to beat him" all over the fabian MSM.

Captain Haddock said...

HAS ..

I don't really care what sort of stick I hit the fucker over the head with .. owt will do, provided that its big enough to cause maximum damage ..

"Fabian" ? .. I remember when he was a Telly "Detective" .. probably the best way of remembering the name .. Lol

Anonymous said...

Oh the Fabians, aren't they the ones George Bernard Shaw was a member of ? You know he who advocated genocide by gassing before Hitler came up with the idea ? Them you mean ? Fuck them . fuck them one and all evil bastards that they are.

Grumpy Optimist said...

I have a theory which can explain this appalling bad taste. I wrote about it on my blog. It is that Brown, being autistic, can only really focus on one thing at a time. Autistics or aspergics literally can only focus on one or a few things. That is how their brains are wired. Now, Brown has been electioneering all his life - lying, posturing, looking after himself. But then he reached the top of the pole and was PM. And then he had to focus on lots of things - like the good of the country and other people. Which of course was beyond him. But now he is electioneering again, only thinking of himself and showing no integrity whatsoever. And I am afraid to sat that he is formidable - Cameron has his work cut out.

I've been browsing on-line more than 3 hours these days, yet I by no means found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.
