Oh dear, poor Gordon Brown. I know that me feeling sorry for him is probably not what he wants but that’s how it is.
He did something stupid but we have all done it. We have all met someone, whether in a pub or at work, who, shortly after they’ve gone, we’ve turned to a friend and said “What a twat!”
The difference here is that he had a live microphone on his lapel; still it could have been worse,
All I would say to any other politician that tries to get any mileage out of this, there by the grace of Twosh goes you.
Be very careful all politicians and perspective politicians who are being interviewed, every Radio and TV producer in the land will be living those mics live for as long as is feasibly possible.
