he was outstandingly good at giving a speech. quick witted and charismatic.
by contract gordon brown's inaugural prime minister speech was fucking dire.
boring, said nothing - 'i will try my utmost'. that's reassuring. someone who's sole promise is to get an A for effort is not going to inspire people to become interested in politics.
whatever else he may do for his time as PM Gordon Brown is going to do fuck all for voter apathy.
he's an Ocean Colour Scene of a man.
