Our erstwhile Prime Minister (how long ago it suddenly seems!) is still restless with vibrant energy. This is, of course, when he is at his most dangerous. There is so much more damage he could do, but his opportunities as a back-bencher are hard to come by.
What he would really like, the Express tells us, is to be head of the International Monetary Fund. This position will be up for grabs in 2012, when Gord-o might be able to apply the skills and policies which made his recent reign such a sucess.
And maybe he could use the talents of his comedy side-kick, Liam “There’s no money left” Byrne.
But what is this? According to the Express, and the Express never lies, Mr Brown believes he has “one big job left in him.” Surely the one-eyed son of the Manse must know that “job” — more usually “jobbie” — is Glasgow slang for poo. The real brown stuff.
Or is the Express trying to tell us, in their always subtle way — that Gord-o is full of shit?
We don’t know. But we think we should be told.
