>Every so often a fellow blogger comes up with something so good that it deserves circulating to a wider audience.
Step forward Jeffrey Breslin and take your bow for this brilliant guide to Gordon Brown to the Americans.
“Gordon doesn’t usually have a straight tie, don’t take it personally if it doesn’t look like he dressed for the occasion.
When Gordon is baring his teeth at you, that will probably be a smile.
When Gordon’s shoulders shake seemingly for no reason, that will be a laugh. And the sentences before it, believe it or not, will have been a joke. Try your best to laugh along if you can.
When Gordon says he has saved the world, indulge him a little as he thinks he is Superman at the moment.
When Gordon puts his hands together and bounces them forwards, he is suggesting a policy. Brace yourself for the next 10 minutes. Or take a power nap.
One last thing, Gordon probably won’t be brave enough to tell you to your faces this was your fault. It was your fault.”
