Gordon Brown: I’m an ordinary man...

Who desires nothing more than an ordinary chance,
to live exactly as he likes, and do precisely what he wants.
An average man am I, of no eccentric whim,
Who likes to live his life, free of strife,
doing whatever he thinks is best, for him,
Well... just an ordinary man...

When Cranmer heard that the Prime Minister describe himself as a ‘pretty ordinary guy’, the words of the genius lyricist Alan J Lerner drifted into mind. And then the extent of Mr Brown’s self-delusion became apparent.

Setting aside the absurd notion that any politician (or aspiring politician) can be in any sense ordinary, and also setting aside any philosophical debate into the nature and definition of ordinariness, Cranmer has condensed just a few of the Prime Minister’s widely-publicised character traits, and is at a loss to find anything ‘ordinary’ about the man at all.

He is known to rant and rave and kick over chairs in fits of anger.
He refuses to admit responsibility, and pathologically pursues vendettas.
Despite his Christian profession, he is obsessive and unforgiving.
He is incapable of shouldering responsibility, except for that which succeeds.
He invariably blames others for his own mistakes.

But Gordon says he is ordinary;
And Gordon is an honourable man.

He uses abusive language and relies only on those who will tell him what he wants to hear.
He discards the innocent and protects the wrongdoer.
He is economical with the truth.
He preaches a ‘moral compass’, yet lacks any moral foundation or sense of direction.
He is self-righteous, and aggressively so.

But Gordon says he is ordinary;
And Gordon is an honourable man.

He is incapable of perceiving his own faults.
He is not easy to work with.
He has been judged to be 'psychologically flawed'.
Those who work closely with him have referred to ‘Stalinist ruthlessness’.
They also talk of his ‘complete contempt for other ministers’.
This Stalinist element creates a schizophrenic tension of Jekyll & Hyde proportions.

Yet Gordon says he is ordinary;
And Gordon is an honourable man.

He is Mr Bean and Mcavity – looking absurd when present or conspicuous by his absence.
He is a coward and a bully.
He can be nasty, incompetent, malign, cold, arrogant, blinkered and totally devoid of the warmth of human kindness.
He talks of ‘vision’ and ‘values’, and seems to be trying to build the Jerusalem which the Rev. John Brown never lived to see.
He refuses to listen to criticism or warnings.
He is stubborn and cannot trust or delegate.
He is relentless in his calculating ambition.

Yet Gordon says he is ordinary;
And, sure, he is an honourable man.

Further proof is not needed that Gordon Brown is manifestly not an ordinary man. And his very use of the word obscures and obliterates vital linguistic meanings, thus subverting distinctions and definitions that are essential for normal comprehension and familiar discourse.

But while he may not be an ordinary man, he may indeed be a perfectly ordinary politician, simply locked away in his own private monastery of self-perceived ordinariness.

And then we wonder why things are as they are.

Are you the same Archbishop Cranmer
that only yesterday wrote "and may those who seek to politically undermine or publicly humiliate him be silenced and bound."?

Had Brown said that he regarded himself as extraordinary Your Grace would have castigated him for that. Most people regard themselves as ordinary even perhaps former members of The Bullingdon Club who now prefer to be known as Dave.

Your Grace

This is a posture, it's simple as that. The politician's stock in trade of striking a pose for political gain. The pity is that, like 'news', politics has become show-biz. Appearance is everything, content and integrity have been cast aside.

You are not wrong.

I think he verges on evil. And I do not use the word lightly.

It is clear now surly, that Gordon Brown was running Tony Blair and not Tony Blair running Gordon Brown.

There never was a divide between these two sick high masonic TRUE MAXIST psychopaths. They knew exactly what they where doing which is the same thing ALL Labour governments do.

Which is cause as much chaos inflation and government borrowing, as possible. While also radically moving forward establishment inspired social, financial and political agendas, such as the EU.

All this chaos, inflation, social change and much worse, enables the establishment to transfer vast amounts of wealth from the public and their own government, to THEIR OWN private financial institutions. Without the need for them to create violent bloody and pointless wars as much as they used to, in the past.

There are two types of shepherd. The Good Shepherd and the Very Very EVIL shepherd. The Good Shepherd lives in The Word. The Bad Shepherd lives in the world of power and finance. He cares not for increased wealth, as he owns almost everything already, but for periodic human sacrifice. This for the exclusive purpose of achieving complete power over his fellow man, therefore TOTAL control over the future destination of this and one day other planets.

Gordon Brown works for the establishments New World Order. He was selected by the Bilderberg group to be a 100% CERTAIN future prime minister of the UK as far back as well before the last bankster conspired economic crash.

Tony Blair was only there at all so that Gordon Browns ugly mug and dis functional personality did not need to be almost all of the time.

Now I hope we can now spot TRUE EVIL when it is standing at the dispatch box. The only party political question worth asking is .

Will Cameron be any better, or put another way, a little less devoutly EVIL, then Gordon Brown?

My guess is he will be just as evil and dishonest, if not worse then Gordon Brown could now be. Simply because Gordon has now done his job of bankrupting the nation and so has no idea what to do next. Mainly because his sponsors have not and are not going to tell him what to do next.

Cameron however has a whole long list of establishment agendas to achieve for his Lord and masters, before his time is also done.

One day we will I hope fully understand that democracy has NEVER run this country, the establishment still do, 100% of the time. Which is the same establishment that run The USA and just about all of the rest of the world.

So if you like what you see, thank them. If not, you now know who to blame.

If this country ever was a freeish one before 1066, it certainly has not been one since. It is a banking corporation and we the people are just company stock to be traded like assorted poor quality meat, bound for our alloted sausage factory. Thats if we are lucky. Otherwise we go up in flames or are buried on mass, in unmarked graves.

If you think the establishment of this country gives a sod whether you live or die, think again, and think again very fast indeed.

Who else do you know could cling on to power in the face of all adversity like this man? I do not say this as any form of compliment. This man either has a direct link to hell, or he is privy to some up and coming event which will make the present circumstances pale into insignificance, OR BOTH OF THE ABOVE.
He makes Hannibal Lecter (spelling may be dodgy) look like Peter Pan. There is something very - very - very NOT RIGHT about this man.

Take heart Your Grace. Soon the Conservatives will put Gordon Brown away for a long time, and you will dance all night, no doubt beg for more, spread your wings, and do a thousand things you've never done before...
