“He’s bonkers!”

with 3 comments

Rowan Atkinson, Gordon Brown bonkers

With other quotes of the day

Looks like our favourite  “Mr. Bean” is in for a bit of a rough ride after former Labour Party general secretary Peter Watt has published a book, Inside Out: My Story Of Betrayal And Cowardice At The Heart Of New Labour.

There are some delightful quotes to be had from the book and Watts’ interview:

  • Mr Brown’s Cabinet ally Douglas Alexander said the PM’s inner circle wanted an early Election partly because even they didn’t like him – and they feared the British public would soon form the same view.
  • No10 is ‘completely dysfunctional’ under Mr Brown, who runs the country ‘by making it up as he goes along’
  • The day Mr Brown called off the 2007 Election, denying he had ever intended to hold one, Labour chiefs had a fleet of limousines circling Parliament Square ready to take Ministers on the campaign trail, and had 1.5million leaflets ready to be posted.
  • Sulking Mr Brown walked out of a Downing Street dinner party with US politicians because they sat down without his permission.
  • ‘You’d imagine that after ten years of waiting, and ten years complaining about Tony, we would have some idea of what we are going to do but we don’t seem to have any policies.’ (Douglas Alexander)
  • “He’s bonkers,” Vilma [Mr Watt’s wife] whispered. She was right.’
  • ‘Labour should have replaced Gordon six months ago. We have to have this out – and fast.
  • ‘It’s true that divided parties don’t win Elections, but leaders as unpopular as Gordon Brown don’t win them either.’

    • That’s odd! It was on the BBC that I first heard about this.
