Gordon Brown wept in public this weekend when he talked of the death of his daughter Jennifer and spoke of facing up to the possible premature death of his son Fraser, who has cystic fibrosis - and his hope a cure will be found.
He also spoke of his agony at the knowledge that his three-year-old son Fraser may have a 'poor life expectancy'.
A member of the audience said: 'It was remarkable to hear Mr Brown talk like that.
'He said he was the one who could tell Jennifer wasn't going to make it and he described how he held her tiny little hand until the very end.
'He was asked if he was angry about his son's illness and said, "We sometimes ask, why us? But we try not to be bitter.
With his one good eye on events the other side of the Atlantic, Gordon Brown has decided to share his personal 'story' with us.
He has convinced himself that if he reminds us about his rugby injury and his dead daughter, we'll forget about his incompetence, deceit, duplicity, dishonesty, downright lying, bullying, cowardice, volcanic temper tantrums, vanity, sulking, unjustified sense of entitlement, betrayal, bungling and boasting.
We'll be so overcome with emotion, empathy, sympathy and admiration that we will overlook the fact that this is the Man Who Stole Your Old Age, who shamefully sold out our sovereignty to unaccountable foreign politicians and judges, flogged off our gold reserves to the lowest bidder, destroyed the Union and taxed us into penury.
