What he did do however was send a small pernicious and incestuous bunch of criminals a not-very-subtle message of, "Don't worry now that Blair's gone folks, I pledge to serve the same masters."
You can watch Gordon Brown's speech brought to the CBI by hardly more than the three words, "New", "World", and "Order".
Gordon's come a long way since his student days when he penned, "How to scrounge off the State", which included such long-forgotten gems as:
"If you're British and can give an address, free money is available from social security, basic £5.80 per week. Social and medical benefits are your right, not charity hand-outs, so never be reticent about claiming them. For whatever the reason the so-called welfare State was brought into being, it can and must be used to its full extent."
Keep your eyes peeled for Gordon's new book, "How to fuck the British working classes and get handsomely rewarded for it."
