Footage of Andrew Marr . . .

. . . asking Gordon Brown that question about his health.


I'm with Guido on this one. It appears that Andrew Marr has finally grown a big pair of bollocks. Check out the look on Gordoom's face when the question is asked. He doesn't look too happy about it and swiftly goes on to tell us all about his eye problems. I doubt whether Gordon will be granting Mr Marr another interview anytime soon ;-)

I have a theory about this, over at my place.

However, actually watching it, he skirted the issue of his Happy Meds completely.

We're not interested in your eyes, Gordon, it's the twisted, dysfunctional grey matter that is behind them!

Right,
he was asked two questions and only answered the one about his eyesight.
He and everybody else knew this question was coming - now this may be because it was pre-arranged or he knew he was going to be asked this by somebody, sometime soon.

As the question came out, he had a quizzical look in his eye (hah!) and put his hand to his mouth, the latter is a surefire sign that he is lying or about to lie.
But then h doesn't lie because he doesn't answer the question.

Marr has indeed grown a pair but only the size of a hamsters, look from where he came.

The fact that he didn't push for an answer means, in my eyes anyway, that it was pretty much pre-arranged - he's asked the question, it has been answered now let's get on with the conference.
Put up job.

However, one could argue that his body language and non-answer answered the question perfectly.

The monocular shit wants to know everything about our health via the £12bn NHS database, he wants to dictate every lifestyle choice we make because his government think we are making the wrong decisions, yet as Prime fucking Minister of the country, he doesn't think the question Marr asked is relevant.

Copper-bottomed hypocritical cunt.

Note the body language, the fucker is lying his arse off.

Just fuck the fucking fuck off Brown you lying, mendaciuos,leftie socialist, Islamification collaberator, Communist fuckwit of a cunt!!!

All Seeing Eye said...

I'm not bought into the planted theory yet, HoPoles. The body language shows he's not comfortable and is worried where the question is going.

True, Marrs cojones shrank back inside his body with the lack of followup but there'll still be no OBN in his Christmas stocking.

Classic ignoratio elenchi aka red herring.

Anyway, if he is as fit as he claims then there is no problem with him being put on trial for treason. He can't be allowed to avoid it on the basis that he is a fucking nutter.

When he is found guilty - top the cunt.

You're missing the point. The question was probably pre-screened. No-one in Westminster has suggested he's been on painkillers. The talk of Westminster is that he's on anti-depressants and snooker-loopy-drugs. That question was never asked. If Andrew Marr had grown balls he'd ask if he was on MAOIs, anti-depressants or other mental-health-related drugs.

What's the betting Marr tries to "balance" the questioning by asking Cameron about his alleged coke ex-habit at the Tory conference?

I bet Labour HQ have been on the phones to the BBC all day with helpful suggestions.

Barking Spider said...

That was a set-up, pure and simple - anti-depressants brushed under the carpet!

The Grim Reaper said...

I'm not convinced Brown was lying here, to be honest. During the first 20 seconds or so, he just looks rather bemused - wondering where on earth Marr's line of questioning is heading. He was clearly rather surprised to be asked this question.

I don't think he was lying when he was telling us about his eyesight. However, talking about this was a useful decoy which would stop him having to answer the other question. It's a political thing essentially - if you don't like the question that was asked, answer the question that you wanted to be asked instead.

Brown lied his way through that exchange and diverted attention by using the Ruggggby incident (he has the most astonishing ability to invent new ways of pronouncing words - "trans parent see" is another) to avoid any further discussion.

Perhaps we need a forthright Yank or Aussie to ask the question and just keep asking it until Brown gives the truth - these UK reporters are useless.

He's clearly on something,because cyclops still thinks he'll win the next fucking election.Oh,of course.I forgot.That's his OCD coming out.I have an ex who has OCD,and the great fat,beached whale fucker wants to become a gym instructer!!Doesn't occur to her that she's totally overweight and she doesn't stand a chance.When she looks in the mirror,she she's what she WANTS to see;a slender,fit gym instructer.Get the picture? They are TOTALLY fucking dillusional.

Agree with allseeingeye - haha, that's funny when discussing this - anyway, this will be a shoe in for questions for Dave regarding any antics that may have taken place at university.
All fair in love and politics I suppose but let's csee if Marr lets Dave off the hook so easily.

I think Gordo would get more sympathy votes if he wore an eyepatch.

Get Paxman onto him or, better still, Clarkson.

I think that's what they call changing the subject.
