Is Gordon Brown a mentalist? That is the question we must ask today. Boggart Blog, as you know, has never shown much restraint in laying into Gordon Brown for incompetence, egomania, and the way he treats us all as if we are as stupid as the average Labour MP.
For those same reasons we find it impossible to sympathise with the outrage of left-leaning newspaper columnists who protest that questions about the Prime Ministers mental health are a gross invasion of his privacy in a matter the public has no right to be curious about.
This fuss has blown up after the BBCs Andrew Marr raised the issue in response to rumours circulating in the blogosphere. With the lefties getting their knickers in a twist about a right wing conspiracy and media bias perhaps we should remind them it is not so long since the left was, rightly, on David Camerons case over allegations of youthful drug taking and both sides were kicking off about Nick Cleggs pre-marital shagging around.
The left say there is no justification in enquiring about the Prime Ministers mental health as it is not in the public interest to know if Brown is a mentalist. Boggart Blog begs to differ. The Prime Minister has influence over many things that affect all our daily lives in great and small ways so if he is bonkers in the head you, the public, have a right to know as much about it as possible.
So what can we tell you? Well, an e-mail made public in connection with a different instance of Labour malfeasance revealed that for reasons relating to certain prescription drugs he is taking Gordon Brown cannot consume a number of substances including cheese and red wine.
The whole list of dietary exclusions affecting the Prime Mentalist corresponds with that associated with an industrial strength anti depressant drug.
Now your Boggart Bloggers, Cleo, Fat Sally and myself would sympathise with anyone who cannot have cheese and red wine. Du pain, du vin, du fromage pretending to be sophisticated is a family tradition.
Life without cheese and wine is merely existence. This would go some way to explaining why Gordon is such a grump and a sulk along with other aspects of his Marvin-The-Paranoid-Android-like behaviour.
So how insane is Gordon Brown? This insane, right. The original e-mail that outed him as a mentalist does not refer to red wine generically but specifically to Chianti. This might simply relate to the fondness for Tuscany shared by the Nu Labour elite. Or it could indicate that liver and fava beans are kept off Gordons menu by doctors orders too.
Brown steals policy from BNP.
In his big speech today Gordon Brown announced plans to deal with the social problem of dysfunctional one parent families. Unfortunsately uber-blogger Guido Fawkes identified it as a rip off of the BNP’s Gulags For Slags Policy
This is going to play really well with the Politically Corect Thought Police who run Labour. Follow the link above and read to the end to find out what else other than Gulags For Slags Gordon Brown and Nick Griffin have in common.
