|Nasty piece of work|
Watching Brown's lunatic performance on Wednesday was painful, and, frankly, baffling. What kind of a man is this unasked for Prime Minister, wondered millions of people? Well, I reckon Richard Littlejohn might have found the answer. The bloke's a borderline sociopath, according to this old bruiser of a feature writer, at least in terms of his public life. Littlejohn says:
Here are some commonly accepted traits of sociopathic behaviour. Stop me when you’ve heard enough.
Glibness and superficial charm; manipulative and cunning.Check.Grandiose sense of self and entitlement.Check.Pathological lying; absence of remorse, shame or guilt; callousness and lack of empathy.Check.Refusal to accept blame; tendency to blame others even for acts they obviously committed.Check.Authoritarian; secretive; paranoid; narcissism; grandiosity; an over-inflated belief in their own powers and abilities.Check.Prone to rage and abuse; outraged by insignificant matters.Check.Instead of friends, they have only victims and accomplices who tend to end up as victims.Check.The end always justifies the means; nothing must stand in their way.Check, check.Our survey said... Anyone we know?
Tell me which of the above does not apply to Gordon Brown. Well, I can't. Can you?Personally, I think 'sociopath' is far too grand a term for Brown. I think he's just a narcissistic martinet with deep seated insecurities. But, hey, what do I know? Make up your own mind.
The only thing that still amazes me is that people are still planning on voting for this loser. They must be as delusional as he plainly is. It's alarming that they're loose in the country!
Ah well, only six more days to go, give or take a few hours. And then we'll be rid of, wait for it, the worst prime minister and government ever to have been inflicted on this country.
