Brown's petulant and jejune comments over a perfectly satisfactory meeting with a Labour voter don't even begin to offer a true insight into the mental barricades he has erected to keep the real world at bay. His aides know perfectly well that he must not be exposed to any risk of contagion from any person who doesn't share the distorted and self-deluded Brown world view. In Gordon's eyes, introducing Mrs Duffy to him was like presenting a starving peasant to Kim Jong Il.
As Andrew Rawnsley writes in the Guardian this morning, this is Brown wholly in character; everything is always someone else's fault, never his own.
So you can be sure there was one massive Brown tantrum we didn't hear yesterday; the one in which Gordon blamed Sue Nye and / or Justin Forsyth for not turning off his mic. You can be sure he would have excoriated them, and there may even have been physical violence; in Brown's distorted vision, his own gaffe would become solely the fault of his aides.
