Gordon Brown 'not a ladies' man' shock

Gordon Brown is not a ladies' man. Neither is he a man's man. There can be few dining tables in the country that would count the Prime Minister's presence as conducive to a successful dinner party. As readers sometimes remind me, he is a sociopath - disconnected perfectly equally from both sexes in a way that must please Mz Harman tremendously.

Radio 4 broadcast 'Gordon's Women' yesterday, analysing his relationship (or lack of) with his female colleagues - iPlayer recording here. Worth a listen.

The Telegraph noted this the other day, their man pointed out that if Alistair Darling came into the bar they might join in a conversation and compare their points of view but if Brown entered he would dive under the table for the reasons that you mention.

@banned, Gordon is the sort of person who, if he got into your railway carriage you would put your bag on the seat next to you just so the nutter doesn't sit there.

Some who have had close personal knowledge of Brown have let the cat out of the bag, but why do so many in the Liebore party cover it up? Are they just dementedly tribal to the same extent that Gordoom is a sociopath? The lunatics really must be running the asylum.

Read Tom Bower's biography, 'Gordon Brown' to see that in his younger days, Brown had, if I remember correctly, three girl-friends (one of whom was some continental royalty). No surprise to learn that he treated them all like shit.

But is being someone you would like round for dinner a leadership requirement?
