Just watched on Sky news as Gordon Brown insulted a woman after getting in his car.
He had a microphone on him, at his request, so as to pick up his conversations with the people he met on his walkabout in Rochdale.
After talking to the woman, Mr.Brown gets in his car, with the mic still attached to him and says " That was a disaster" He goes on to say
" I don't know who's idea it was to put me with that woman" and this is interesting because these were supposed to be random people he met.
He then says something like " It must have been sue" perhaps one of his aides named sue?
The worst part is when his advisor/colleague in the car asks something like "What was the problem, what did the woman say? Gordon then says
" Oh I don't know.. some bigoted woman"
It's all over the news at the moment and this gaffe is sure to have a negative effect on him and his current strategy of winning people over and
proving he can actually talk and interact with people.
This has just happened and is all over the news, but I'm waiting for some online sources to report this.
Well I think this is pretty funny personally.... but truly a disaster for Labour and personally for Brown.
Obviously politicians are just like anyone else, they insult people and slag them off and when nobody is listening, they even say things like this....
but for him to do it in this way and on live TV.... well, it's just so damaging.
The Tories have jumped on this and have and I would imagine this is going to run for a while now, Gordon really should have known better and was
almost itching to insult this woman.... as soon as he got in the car he was like "That was a disaster"
HA! Hilarious! Thanks for the vid. The woman didn't seem bigoted to me at all.. At the start of the clip it seemed more like she wanted to
get away from him, like she would've sprinted if she'd been able to.
Yep, that's a showstopper all right. I'd like to see more politics from countries besides the U.S. thanks Blup
Well I don't like the guy so I don't feel too sorry for him. You have to keep track of when the tapes are rolling after all.
However, lets be honest. He is being roasted for being human. We have all suffered through an encounter with someone we found insufferable, and once
free of there life draining powers, vented to whomever we felt would be sympathetic. This was no more and no less.
So he found a woman annoying? *gasp* How dare he not truly like everyone he comes into contact with. What an #@*@!!! /sarcasm off
I now cant wait for the final leaders debate tomorrow .
Labour are heading for their worst defeat in living memory .
The only down side is this will bolster David Cameron , this country is in soooo much trouble .
