    Guess who I saw down asda yesterday.


    Gordon Brown! Bit of a mistake coming to Weymouth though as he got a bit of a cold reception.

    Gordon Brown's new strategy of meeting the public backfired yesterday after a shopper suggested he change jobs because he was looking ill.

    On a visit to an Asda supermarket in Weymouth, a woman in her forties asked Sarah Brown: 'I would suggest your husband changes his career because he has been looking unwell since getting his new job.'

    Mr Brown attempted to laugh the slight off, while Sarah ignored the question.

    Perhaps he was just reaqauinting himself with everyday tasks like the rest of us have to manage for when he gets made redundent in the next round of cuts due in a couple of weeks. Surely he's more of a Waitrose\Sainsbury man though?

    I think he should have gone to Lidol or Aldi.

    surely theres other places that could supply you with said goods? local co-op maybe?

    You should have pushed passed him on camera and when they stop you you should have just shouted "im an under paid under valued school it technician im not stopping my day for the man that put me in this position"

    I have nothing but distain for the majority of Politian’s. I had no desire to see this <insert expletive of choice or inoffensive word if that makes your less offended> and certainly seeing him interfering directly in my life just made my skin crawl. He hates the public, he hates dealing with the public, he looked incredibly uncomfortable and was only there because the majority in the area is so low. He seemed to be incredibly unpopular by the comments being thrown about.

    Funny thing though, I would have been excited if it had been any of the ex prime ministers of recent times regardless of allegiance.

    With guns, dont forget the guns.

    Ps
    The visit didn't even make the front page of the local Echo. You have to laugh.

    It's not looking good for him at the moment, I read today Nick Clegg said he'd be prepared to work for men from Mars, but Gordon Brown was out of the question.

    I sincerely hope that GB doesn't get 're-elected' (there should have been an election or at least a referendum when Blair went). He comes across as very arrogant and dismissive of anything or anyone that doesn't fit in with his vision of the world.
