Brown does the Time Warp again

For those who missed Rory Bremner doing an impersonation of Gordon Brown's dancing on YouTube, the Prime Minister has just done a repeat version during his atrocious speech in Blackpool. You wonder if he has been watching aerobics videos, instead of "how to improve your diction" videos. It was all hands up, then hands down. He did a jump to the left, then a step to the right. It was a Prime Ministerial version of the timewarp, and it made you dizzy watching it.

And here is the proper Bremner impersonation of his notorious YouTube dance below:
