Gordon's status as an expert on the subject of courage is not readily apparent to anyone except perhaps himself. His books on the subject languish at the very bottom of Amazon's UK book chart; Wartime Courage (Nov 2008) at number 145,765 and Everyday Heroes (Jul 2007) at 339,358. Copies can be had for less than a pound.
In contrast, Vernon Coleman's 'Gordon is a Moron: The Definitive and Objective Analysis of Gordon Brown's Decade as Chancellor of the Exchequer' is at a very respectable 55,129.
Of course, Gordon's reputation in the field of courage is not helped by his habit of running away from any hint of controversy or challenge and leaving others to hold the fort. The Libyan affair is no different, and as the document trail suggests Brown's fingerprints were all over the Libyan deal he himself is nowhere to be seen.
