Gordon Brown is probably having the worst time of his life right now. Rejected by millions, humiliated by the electorate. The man's not happy.
And now, according to the rumour flying around the Twittersphere, Gordo' has "left Downing Street and is headed for Scotland".
What the fuck? Why now? We're all told endlessly by apologists that he's only staying as PM because it's his 'constitutional' (though we don't have a constitution) duty. That he's sitting in Downing Street because we need him there, for 'stability', to 'secure the nation'.
So why is Macavity McBroon leaving us, doing a runner? Why head to the hills - literally - in the middle of this hung parliament crisis? He'd normally be fighting for his political life, fighting for his and his party's survival. Using every dirty trick and every immoral spin in the book.
We all recall how, a few months ago, the rumours said he was on increasingly heavy medication, just to keep him going. And that was just to get him through PMQ's, and the odd television interview.
Imagine the strain the campaign put on him. Imagine the stress of seeing everything he'd fought for, the enormous edifice of lies, crumbling. Imagine knowing that the public haven't, after all, bought into him and his vision.
Surely, no medication in the world could keep him going through all that.
First we hear a rumour that Broon has been yelling down the phone at his only possible saviour, Nick Clegg. Now we here he's fleeing London, heading away to his homeland, at the least likely time.
Has Gordon Brown been led away from Westminster, to peace and quiet, following some kind of breakdown?
You wouldn't be surprised, would you?
