epic win

FAIL

The by-election was talked about on American national public radio! You can listen to it here (hat-tip to a commenter on andrewducker's journal for that.) It's kind of odd. I would never have imagined it being mentioned at all, to be honest. Interesting, though - apparently Brown's fairly popular and competent outside the UK, it's just when he comes home it all goes wrong. Clearly, like the Doctor, he doesn't do domestic. Also you get to hear Americans talking about Gless Cow.

I think 'Brown's totally incompetent everywhere but (bafflingly) somewhat popular outside the UK' would be a better way of putting it. Of course he does do mind-blowingly stupid stunts to gain popularity outside the UK, like giving India - India - 835 million pounds of aid when he visited them! Hello, he was the Chancellor, hasn't he heard of BRIC?

Stupid git, stupid git, stupid git."

Gordon Brown
Reviled by the press
Now he's down, he's heading West
Maybe today, he'll go away
Always a frown, with Gordon Brown

The Septics loved Thatcher and Blair too.

I wouldn't trust their opinion on our politicians ;)
