It’s Gordon Brown – shocker

Well, who’d have thunk it? My flabber is well and truly gasted.

Labour leader Gordon Brown is the UK's new prime minister after being asked to form a government by the Queen.

In an obvious way, this was the easiest question of his life – even easier than the ‘may I congratulate my right honourable friend on his prudent handling of the economy’ type from lickspittle backbenchers.

But, as Tony Blair can tell him, it’ll turn out to be the hardest thing he’ll ever be asked.
