"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Can It Possibly Get Any Worse?

This via Anna Racoon at Old Holborn.
"The Prime Minister of Great Britain is a man too ill to be holding the Office." This was the conclusion last week of a senior civil servant liaising regularly with Gordon Brown. For reasons which will become clear, the person involved will not go public with the evidence for this conclusion. The same applies to a high-ranking Treasury official who told us "In both a physical and mental sense, the Prime Minister is a very sick man, seriously disabled." Three years ago, an Opposition MP told nby "He is on extremely heavy doses of cutting-edge anti-depressants, but so far they have made little difference". And during the last fortnight, another high-ranking government source claimed "He is now on pills which restrict the foods he can eat and what he can drink. He is losing the sight of his good eye quite rapidly. It's a mess, and nobody knows what to do".

Rumours have circulated about Gordon Brown's health for a number of years. As long ago as 2004, Simon Heffer wrote in the Spectator that he displayed many signs of Asperger's syndrome: humourlessness, lack of irony and obsessional behaviour patterns. Nby itself ran a long piece in February 2007, predicting fairly accurately how Brown's rigid responses to given situations would prove to be inappropriate, and his behaviour in the end dysfunctional. We noted at the time 'If the Labour Party can organise seventy-three signatories to a document of intent named 'Anyone but Gordon', then there must be something about the man which might make him unfit to be Prime Minister'. In fact, we had already been advised by then that the PM had been on large doses of SSRI anti-depressants - the class of drugs derived from Prozac.

The overall story is well known in lobbyist circles. A senior member of this group told us that "Brown is in a very dark place. Sarah [hiswife, Mrs Brown] has begged him on several occasions to seek help, but he resists most offers of advice." Yet another popular journalist said "I'm afraid all the stories about him throwing things around and screaming at secretaries are entirely true. He behaves impeccably in public and can really turn on the charm when he needs to in private - but inside the bunker he behaves appallingly. He's also binging on junk food late at night - you can see he's gaining weight... ..."

On and on it goes ... ...  check out the rest of the article at Old Holborn but can I please ask these unattributed 'insiders' to actually come clean and do the country a favour? If it's true then step into the limelight and say so; if it isn't then just stfu.
UPDATE: Direct link to NBY so you can make up your own minds as to the likely veracity of the allegations.

  1. Now Now Theres no need for that kind of language

    Person with mental health problem. Its probably caused by the fact he doesnt get any Vitamin D being as he is inside all day in meetings. So hes gone a bit fruitcake Vitamin D deficient which explains all the nokia throwing.

    Nutter just rhymes with butter

  3. If this hits MSM then you can be sure that a BIG play is going down.

    Jackson snuffed it as the Goldman Sachs malarky splashed.

    Heads up.

  4. I don't believe any of it. Such an unstable personality allowed to remain in charge of the country?

    Gordon Brown knows a great deal, probably too much for his own good, about many secret deals and negotiations that numerous organisations would prefer stayed secret. If he really were on the verge of breakdown, he would likely already have faced his David Kelly moment.

  5. We are talking about Labour, though, Edgar. He is completely on the edge all the time. Maybe he's been getting them from Michael Jackson's doctor on the internet - those are serious meds, GV.

  6. Brown's long been known as the Nutter with the Stutter in blogging circles (at least those I frequent) and if this article is true it wouldn't come as a surprise. The only surprise would be that he was allowed to continue as PM when clearly not up to it (perhaps shame would be a better word). Anna Racoon usually has good sources. Perhaps if the article was spread around the msm might not be able to ignore it - it's an allegation of such enormity that it should at least be aired openly, if only so it can be quashed once and for all.

  7. Brown has the stench of failure not mental health issues about him. Just let him go before we all suffocate from the smell!

  8. I would hope even the MSM check their facts more thoroughly - this would be little more than a smear unless we see cold hard, evidence

    that, and I don't want gordon to have apologists in ten years saying it was all a witch-hunt or that he was ill - he wanted the damn job, he did it for three years against our wishes, I'm not blaming anyone but him
