Brown’s strop: the director’s cut

Text settings

Halloween's still a few weeks away, but here's something to inspire CoffeeHousers' nightmares in the meantime: Gordon Brown's infamous glower at the end of his interview with Adam Boulton.  The footage that Sky released yesterday tactfully cut the whole thing short, but the new video below features our PM's Look of Pure Hatred in its entirety, along with the moment he stands up to leave with his mic still attached:

It is, I'm sure you'll agree, a fairly significant presentational failure on Brown's part.  For years now, his legendary temper has largely remained behind closed doors - allowing his allies to present him as "caring" and "gentle".  But now the public have had a clear insight into a, erm, less endearing side of the PM.
