Why was Gordon Brown there?
Have you ever seen anyone look so out of place as Gordon Brown last night, shaking hands with all the players after the World Cup Final. He must have been gutted that he was not able to use national sporting success to restore his smashed image in the way that Mbeki so blatantly did - and he's no Nelson Mandela. I wonder what he was saying to the players. Johnny Wilkinson walked straight past him as if he wasn't there. Someone should ask Johnny if he wants to stand as a Conservative candidate somewhere. Anyway, it was the England team. Gordon Brown is Scottish and the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. He wouldn't have been there if it had been Wales in the final. What the hell was he doing there?
