The Brown tantrum we didn't hear

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.

Spot on.

I just hope on hope that all this is sufficiently close to the election to finish that bastard off once and for all.

I hope so too, but he seems to be like a cockroach - you just can't get rid of it. Brown and his entourage are a deluded bubble within the deluded Westminster bubble - double insulated.

How very true.

The confirmation of this is that Brown has no idea how to connect to people. After emerging from Mrs Duffy's house he apologised most profusely, and at great length to the media. Instead of bearing a contrite expression, he did the 'apology' with a grin plastered to his face. Clearly, he has been told by his managers that he must smile. So the duffer smiles at even the most inappropriate time.

For a politician to not connect to people is a most serious flaw. In fact it is a major flaw for a human.

The Brown claim, put out by Brown himself but also by the Labour party, that he is the expert on the economy has to be the most ludicrous claim by any UK politician I have ever heard.

After all of Brown's economic gaffes and the worst recession since the 1930s, Brown portrayed as the guardian of our economy is the really big lie of the bare-faced propagandist. Truly there are no bounds on "the impudence of an impudent man".
