Gordon and Susan

Poor Susan Boyle has been suffering the after-effects of her time as a contestant on 'Britain's got Talent', so much so that she has had to check in to the Priory for some rest and recuperation. It seems obvious now that she had no idea of the pressure she would be under when she began this but then, how many of us would? However, I was surprised, to say the least at the report by the BBC that Gordon Brown took time out to enquire about her well-being and be interviewed on the subject by GMTV. This is the man who seemed to have disappeared from the face of the earth during the last week or so when other political leaders were bending over backwards to reassure us voters that they were doing their best to address the problems of MPs and their expenses.
It's nice to know that Brown is so confident that 'it will all be all-right, chaps' that he has time to concern himself with performers on a TV talent show. There's a man who has really got his priorities sorted.

  2. Very true, Debbie. I think the majority of the country has lost confidence in the whole lot of them.

  3. To b ehonest I felt a bit sorry for him having to answer questions on Susan Boyle. It kind of shows just how trivial our media is when with the opportunity to quiz the P.M they ask about BGT. a few months ago they were asking him about Jade Goody. Depressing really.
